Obstacles – Something for Your Character to Overcome

3 min read

Creating obstacles and conflict for a character is a crucial step in the character development process. You need to give your character something to overcome at any given moment. Contracting objectives create conflict in a plot, so understanding what obstacles a character is facing will help you know how to play the scene. By making the obstacles even bigger, you raise the stakes and heighten the conflict.

In this video, we will discuss how to look at obstacles and conflict in a script and give some examples of how an actor can outline all the moment to moment obstructions in their path and the tactics they can use to overcome them.
