Storyteller with Lisa Golden
The Love Interest | Storyteller Basics
Are you ready for some storytelling school? Today's class - the love interest
Queer Creative's founder Cathie Swan takes us on a deep-dive into how the deepest human desire to find love has been used to write some truly terrible love interests over the years. Using 2007's blockbuster hit Next starring Nicolas Cage and Jessica Biel, Cathie guides us through this peak of speechless, directionless female love interests in big Hollywood movies.
Lisa and Cathie discuss how love interests can be sufficiently developed alongside a protagonist when time and attention is limited, the cheesy awfulness of 2000s movie trailers and if in general love interests are getting more interesting in the 2020s.
