If a screenplay writer or any kind of storyteller wants to captivate us for the duration of their story, one of the key elements they must incorporate into their word play is: characters we can relate to and care about.
These characters have to be flawed and in desperate need of change, especially in their relationships with each other. The reader must find these characters interesting and captivating.

The relationships in the film have to be complicated, enthralling and real. The performers must play off of one another seamlessly in order to take us on an emotional roller coaster that will have us coming back for more…

Scarecrow: “Well, some people without brains do an awful lot of talking don’t they?”
Atticus Finch: “If you just learn a single trick, Scout, you’ll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks. You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view… Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.”

‘Ah, that guy!’ – This is the thought that usually crosses the mind of the common movie watcher or occasional movie goer, when seeing a film starred or co-starred by Sam Rockwell, or one in which he has a supporting role. Generally underrated by the general public, and often by the industry Awards-givers, the character actor, however, represents all that is genuine in the fake landscape of the movie world.
They are the film lovers turned to storytellers, the cinematic surgeons turned to celluloid-art wizards, the ever curious souls turned to emotion sculptors. They are not concerned with making millions and neither thirst for the idolization of the masses. Their goal and drive is one and one only: Bringing the story to life, so other film lovers, as well as the public at large, can, for an average of 90 min. submerge into a parallel dimension brimming with possibilities, where they can either escape and trivialize their existence or better understand it, as well as be moved, inspired and even challenged by the infinite tapestry of other humans’ existence.
