There’s an old adage that character is story. Sounds good. After all, what is a story without a bunch of folks doing stuff to advance the plot. But what then is character? And even more important, how to get someone to care about the characters you invent.
This Saturday, Feb. 12, the Bunch of Grapes begins an eight week course in screenwriting that focuses on just this type of artistic struggle. Jill Allman-Bernstein, a freelance script consultant and editor, will lead the course entitled The Character of a Screenplay.
Each week participants will learn by doing as they continue to develop their own screenplays using key elements of the craft.
