Making characters grow and change with Screenwriting | Natalia Roberts | JPCatholic Student

Meet Natalia Roberts, a Junior Screenwriting student at John Paul the Great Catholic University. With Dominic, she explores how screenwriting really pushes you to think about characters, and follow a process to get a project done. Learn how writing for film is different to writing fiction. But, as Natalie points out, the way a screenwriter thinks can help short stories and novels get stronger faster – by focusing better on creating great characters!
