Welcome Back and a word about Character . . .

Welcome Back!
This week, as you are picking up your schedules and gathering your books, please take a moment to read the article I have posted below.
The critic, Matt Singer, elaborates on a simple point, that is emphasized over and over again in our classes. "Character and Story are paramount.Without a compelling story and memorable characters, the film isn't worth making." These two areas that are judged by every film critic, instructor, audience member, and film lover. These two things are what defines any narrative story be it novel, play, film, etc. Singer emphasizes on a certain point that has been trend setting in modern American filmmaking: Worldbuilding. To become familiar with that term, read the article and let us know if agree, disagree, or have questions.
