Make Sure There's A Love Interest Who Can Scream
The Cliché: The hero’s love interest needs to have a great set of lungs.
Appears In: Spider-Man, Batman Begins.
How To Make It Real: Hold auditions for your hero’s love interest that are specifically designed to test the lovely young thing’s ability to scream for her life. If she can’t scream, she’s out of there.
That said, if you’ve found the perfect girl – she looks great on film, has amazing chemistry with your hero – but she just can’t scream for anything, hire yourself a professional screamer. This way, you can lay down an audio track during the editing and get the best of both worlds. Sorted.
