ABOUT THIS MODULE

A movie is populated with dozens of other characters – many of whom have an influence on the protagonist and the antagonist.  These supporting characters either help or hinder, compliment or compete with our protagonist and antagonist. They add vibrancy and excitement to the story, all while serving as a valuable literary tool for you as you write the screenplay.  In this module, we’re going to explore the function of supporting characters.

 "Jason proves that top-notch production values are within the reach of anyone who has ever dreamt of making his own movie. You’ll learn far more about filmmaking with this practical, thorough and meticulously organized site than you ever will watching "Project Greenlight." Jason knows what he’s talking about, because he’s actually done it!"
