Today we applied Propp's Theory of Character Functions to the short film TEMPO. There was some good discussion but I think that most people came to the conclusions that I have posted opposite. The next step is to consider why this works and how it propels the narrative forward.
The Hero - The scientist guy.
The Villain - The investor.
The Princess - The survival of the female scientist.
The Helper - The gun.
The Donor - The two scientists for making the CAP.
The Dispatcher - The female scientist (when she says she is bleeding too fast).
The Father - The female scientist (for surviving at the end).
