Building Character: Crafting 3D Characters in a 2D Medium

Mar 13, 2018

12:30pm – 2:30pm CT

This session requires RSVP, and access will only be available to badge types listed under "Primary Access."

Television and film writers often say, “Character is king” or “Character drives story,” but rarely does anyone talk about the simple mechanics that make up a well-designed, fully fleshed out character. Just like any other structural element of crafting a story, there are a series of concepts and hacks that can turn a boring, flagging protagonist into one audiences can’t get enough of. Former film critic turned screenwriter C. Robert Cargill (Sinister, Marvel’s Doctor Strange, Locke and Key) will discuss building a character from the ground up – from initial story plotting to diagnosing weak characters in complete scripts.
