Creating A Great Character Arc
ABOUT THE WEBINAR
When we study successful films, the one constant is that the audience feels deeply for the protagonist. But how does a screenwriter accomplish that? This webinar will show you how professionals use specific techniques to construct their protagonist’s character arc and in so doing, develop a story that is based on character, not plot.
The webinar will be taught by Glenn M. Benest, award winning screenwriter and one of Los Angeles’ most popular instructors of screenwriting workshops.
