Creating The Perfect Villain
By Jacob Krueger
Creating a believable antagonist is about more than just coming up with nefarious plans. It’s about stepping into the world view of your villain, and asking yourself what really makes them tick. When written right, a great villian not only ups the stakes of your screenplay, but also pushes your main character in profound ways, that force them to confront their own flaws and go on a powerful journey.

You”ll learn what made these antagonists so believable, what drives them, and how you can apply the lessons of these characters to your own writing.
