What is the difference between a super objective and a scene objective?
The super objective is what the character wants out of life. The scene objective is what the character wants from the scene or the other character. In most cases this will be what the character wants the other character to do.
A character’s objective may simply be “I want him to leave the room,” or “I want him to kiss me.”
The most playable objectives have both a physical and an emotional component. In the case of “ wanting him to leave the room” the physical element is leaving the room or physically staying. The emotional element is the character is happy or sad he’s gone.
These objectives are fueled with actions, meaning if you want someone to leave you could <em>ask</em> them or you could <em>demand</em> they leave. Committing to an action or as Paul Newman puts it “action verbs” charges the scene with emotion and risk. These are the things that bring a scene to life.
