"Discovering And Writing Compelling Characters In The Films We Watch"
For almost twenty years now, I’ve had the good fortune of writing the screenplays for a handful of films that have found their way onto the big screen. Some have told larger-than-life stories (such as “Secretariat”), others have put the spotlight on smaller, more intimate triumphs (“The Rookie”), and one even presented me with the unique challenge of writing a story featuring animated cars (“Cars 3”).
All of them, though, shared the one absolute key writing responsibility of structuring and developing characters the audience would care about. The same responsibility existed during the writing of my upcoming novel “Skavenger’s Hunt,” which features the fictional origin story of the very first scavenger hunt; an elaborate competition featuring puzzles and riddles that took thousands of hunters all around the globe back in 1885. The setting is huge, but the story only works if the character of Henry—a 12-year-old boy who travels back in time to take part in the hunt—works in the mind of the reader.
How tricky is it to construct characters that the audience develops a vested interest in?.
