How to Create Characters that Engage Your Audience

At a Glance

  • For anyone who wants to learn how to create and develop dynamic, compelling characters
  • Explores the specific tools and exercises working writers use to create fascinating, believable characters
  • Discover the common mistakes writers make when developing characters and how to avoid them

ABOUT THE WEBINAR

Compelling characters are essential to any successful screenplay. Yet few writers are consistent in their ability to develop characters that are strong enough to truly grab and hold a reader’s attention.

In the past two years, Corey Mandell has had 47 students and clients sell or option scripts with dozens more landing writing assignments. This live webinar teaches the specific tools and exercises these writers use to create fascinating, believable characters that can captivate readers. The webinar also shares a variety of writing processes professional writers use to explore, develop and refine their characters. They are the same tools and techniques Corey teaches in his UCLA classes, private workshops and script coaching services.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:

  • How to give each character a unique and interesting voice
  • How to avoid stiff one-dimensional characters
  • How to create crisp, professional-level dialogue
  • What is required to get readers to fall in love with your characters
  • How to turn off your inner critic
  • How to avoid procrastination and keep writing

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

  • Writers who want real tools to create the strongest possible characters
  • Writers who are seeking an agent or manager
  • Writers who have had a script rejected due to weak characters
  • Writers who are about to start a new script
  • Writers who are rewriting an existing script
  • Anyone who is new to screenwriting and wants to start out on the right foot

HOW DOES THE WEBINAR WORK?

The webinar is broadcasted via the internet with live audio delivered through your computer speakers or over your telephone. The live webinar’s visual presentation is displayed directly from the Presenter's computer to your computer screen. The Q&A is managed through a chat-style submission system with questions being read and answered by the Presenter for the entire class to hear. In the event some questions are not answered during the live session, an e-mail with questions and answers will be sent to all webinar attendees. By attending the live webinar and/or asking questions, your full name may be stated during the live event and captured in the recording.

WHAT EQUIPMENT DO I NEED?

All you need is a computer or iOS device, and an internet connection. You’ll be able to view the presentation and listen to the audio over computer speakers; however, you’ll enjoy much better audio quality if you use a telephone. See below for complete system requirements.
