Writing: Building Characters with Natasha Mwansa
A film or TV plot is only ever as good as its characters. In this interactive workshop, we'll be going through examples of strong characters using clips from films and TV and fun activities to get the creative juices flowing. This workshop is perfect for anyone who finds it difficult to craft interesting and believable characters from scratch or even anyone who just wants to get together with other writers to brainstorm and bounce ideas off one another. Come prepared to share your ideas and opinions!
The workshop will go through:
- What makes a good character
- Cheat sheets for building character traits
- Realistic relationship dynamics between characters
- Diversity and marginalised groups
- Building plot through character
- How to research characters
- Character and context
At Wildcard we believe everyone should have the chance to be creative. We want all our courses to be as open and inclusive as possible to anyone that wants to take part. We are aware that the cost of workshops and regular training is a key barrier in our industry for many people.
With this in mind, we are pleased to be able to offer 2 free places on each course.
