Craft Intensive | WTF is the Difference Between a Character's WANTS and NEEDS?

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

You hear it all the time: wants, needs, motivations, internal and external goals. WTF does it all mean and how does it make a character likable, relatable and dimensional? In this workshop we'll cover creating characters whose journeys an audience will want to follow.

The Craft Intensive Sessions are deep-dive educational sessions with a great instructor.
