    Today’s ‘bad guy’ is a different breed of cinematic nemesis. From Colonel Hans Landa in Inglorious Basterds and Loki in The Avengers to President Snow in The Hunger Games, every story needs its jaw-dropping antagonist. In today’s been-there-done-that story-telling world, what are the character traits that every nemesis must have? What are the elements that you can play with? How evil is evil when you’re writing for a global world? How do culture, race and religion play a role in the development of the nemesis? Our guest screenwriters, Glenn Berger (Kung Fu Panda), Rhett Reese (Zombieland) and moderator, Mark Leiren-Young will take us inside the process of crafting a good ‘bad’ guy!
