Every actor that comes to Hollywood wants the chance to play a character that will have everyone talking about their performance.
What if you were the screenwriter who wrote that character for them?
Make A-List Actors Fall In Love
Every agent, manager and producer is looking for great roles – because they know audiences and A-List Actors alike fall in love with them.
Understanding actors’ needs and incredible character design empowers you to:
Create Profound Depth
Turn Character Profiles into Powerful Dialogue
Pick Perfect Characters for Your Story
Make Actors NEED to be in Your Movie
Introduce Characters like Stars
Accomplishing all of that will make great actors LOVE your writing. And getting them on board can take projects from “we’ll get back to you” to “GREENLIT.”
Writing “Actor Bait”
We extensively studied character design and expression in many top scripts and created a great model for creating characters.
But then we went further.
Meeting with 32 production companies owned by A-List Actors, we got answers about EXACTLY what makes movie stars say “YES!” to a project.
By the end of this class, you’ll also have the answers to:
What causes an actor to fall in love with a character?
How does an actor read a script differently than a producer?
What needs to be in the character introduction to entice an actor?
How does a role improve the reputation and financial future of an actor?
And what does all of this have to do with you and your screenplay?
Armed with that and our Movie Stars model, you’ll know how to attract actors, create incredible character profiles and write tantalizing introductions… in every screenplay you write.
