Villains are a lot like heroes: They are active, powerful, dynamic, and capable of change. They're just, you know, bad. And you have to give your villains a little love to make them a worthy opponent for your actual heroic characters.

In this interactive workshop, we'll discuss a few techniques for making the most of your bad guys:
  • Humanize your villain first by getting to know him or her, especially the motivation.
  • Find the vulnerability, what he's afraid of, what she's ashamed of.
  • Show this character making moral choices, not just automatically doing the bad thing, but choosing to do that bad thing for "good" reasons (good according to their own measure, anyway!).

So if you've got a bad guy going up against your good guy, this workshop is for you!
