Included in Disney's Recommended Reading List!
In all the excitement of creating a story, what with plot points and structure, not to mention all that formatting, it’s easy to forget what’s really at the heart of any great script: believable characters the audience roots for.
In Creating Unforgettable Characters, Linda Seger shows how to write strong, multidimensional characters, covering everything from doing the necessary research and developing backstory and character psychology to avoiding stereotypes and working through character blocks.
Throughout are interviews with many of today's top writers for film, television, and advertising as well as novelists and playwrights.
"A fascinating collection of ideas and insights. I think anyone writing for the screen would benefit from reflecting on this material."
-Ron Bass, writer, Rain Man, My Best Friend’s Wedding, Stepmom
