New Podcast Up: Dying Hard for Your Hero

Podcast Logo NewOne evening last week I was home alone (sort of) and was mourning the loss of Alan Rickman, so I watched “Die Hard”. Even though I had seen the film many times, I learned a valuable lesson about writing about action heroes from the film that I want to share with everyone. This episode is also a time to mourn the loss of some great people in the month of January, some in music and some in film. We talk about our favorite Alan Rickman movies and how Rickman was able to bring so many characters to life in such a unique way. Perhaps there is something to learn from Mr. Rickman about characterization.

You can find the episode here.
