How do you judge someone's character when you meet them in the real world?
By what they say, what they do and how they react to situations.
You have to do that, but in your writing.
It's no good saying that "Brian is an intolerant, woman-hating bigot" in the synopsis unless you demonstrate that in the script, through what he says, what he does and - very importantly - how he reacts to situations.
So, better writing, really.
Superb advice from someone who obviously knows what he is about.
"Formerly an advertising creative - I may even have written a few commercials you know. Or not".
BTW : in as few words as possible.. "Any money in creating adverts these days/how does one get into it/can someone 'off the street' get in a make a fast buck (if they have a good enough idea)/and what would be the best way to go about that?"
Your starter for 10. Or not..
