Filmmaking Deadly Sin Number 4 – The Good Guy Must Want Something.

Listen to this week’s Podcast called,

“Filmmaking Deadly Sin #4 – The Good Guy Must Want Something.”

Once again William Akers (Your Screenplay Sucks!) and Kelley Baker (The Angry Filmmaker) get together and discuss Deadly Sin #4.

Everyone wants to know what your hero is fighting for and what they want and desire. So instead of not making that clear in your movie, here is an idea… Make it clear to the audience! Shocker, I know.

If you truly don’t know what your hero wants in the movie, then you probably shouldn’t be shooting the movie. You should go back and rewrite the script until the hero’s desires are known. So just remember the audience wants someone to root for, but they can’t do that unless they know what that hero wants.
