Read an article a while back that has been brewing in the background. Basically the writer* said that all great scripts boil down to the relationship between two characters. Get that right and you have a chance of the story working emotionally.
It got me thinking about my more successful scripts. And some of the feedback on others.
If you pull back on everything and everyone else, pull out those scenes featuring your two main characters and really work on that central relationship, the one that holds up your story, drives it forward or fatally flaws your main character... might it make your story stronger?
*Of course, when I go to dig the article out, I can't find it. I have a feeling it came via the Raindance site but I'll give you the url when I find it.
