     Deepening Your Characters: A Screenwriter’s Guide (UCLA Extension)

    Billy MernitCindy DavisPhilip Eisnermazur

    The best Hollywood movies deliver big, juicy main characters who take their audience on an emotionally involving journey.  Join UCLA Extension Writers’ Program screenwriters as they explore how to create multi-dimensional, stylish, credible, and empathetic characters (aka “actor bait”!) whose wants and needs deepen over the course of the screenplay, within each individual scene, and that add up to the kind of compelling read that can get a project sold. 

    Panelists:   Billy Mernit (Chair); Cindy Davis, Philip Eisner, and Steve Mazur
