Quick Screenwriting Tip: “Dismay” Character Jan 13

Quick Screenwriting TipQuick Screenwriting Tip:

If your script is fantastical in nature, look for opportunities for a supporting character to react with dismay — especially if your main characters have become accustomed to the world.

Used at the right time, this may:

  • make a moment feel more authentic or relatable
  • provide an opportunity for a laugh
  • remind us of the stakes
  • help suspend the audience’s disbelief
