Philip Seymour Hoffman Tobit Writer

PREMISE: Tobit is an observant Dutch Jew living in Amsterdam. He lives correctly, giving alms and burying the dead. In spite of his good works, Tobit is struck blind. Concurrent with Tobit’s story is that of Sarah, daughter of one of Tobit’s distant relative, whose seven successive husbands are each killed by a demon on their wedding night. When Tobit and Sarah pray to God for deliverance, God sends the angel Raphael to act as intercessor. Tobit regains his sight, and Sarah marries Tobit’s son Tobias. The story closes with Tobit’s thanksgiving and an account of his death. This is actually a Jewish short story possibly dating from Persian times in some Bibles is the book of Tobit, named after the father of its hero.

This is especially true in the beginning. You feel such a fine sense of accomplishment after finishing your script, all justly deserved, it’s only natural to spend as much time and energy marketing it—and you should.

Don’t invest all your hopes and dreams in any single screenplay. I don’t care how good you think your script is, keep moving. It’s the only way to stay sane in the screenwriting business.

By all means, don’t use a writers group as a crutch. Hollywood is very mean and stressful territory, and “too nice” a writers group isn’t good training for this reality.

Here are some tips for creating strong film characters:

Look back in your own life at people you know or have met that are “unforgettable.” What makes them so? Their physical, emotional and verbal behavior, which adds up to their personality and character. So these behaviors are what you have to work with to create fully fleshed characters on the page.

Describing a character is one thing; bringing the character to life is quite another. Creating “unforgettable characters” is one of the more important skills you have to learn.
