Fellow writers, I am currently in the process of writing a screenplay for a short feature film (1:20'). I have decided to try out a writing trick, and I need to know if anyone can refer me to cases where it's been used and it worked. Without further ado, here is my situation: A couple of characters are introduced together at the start, they form a 2 person music band. We only see them in one scene, and I deliberately hide them for the first half of the movie. Right after the introduction of these characters, my "fake" hero is introduced. He's a character that starts out good and meets the band in the middle of the film. At this stage I plan on focusing more and more on the band, as the "fake" hero begins to turn bad and eventually becomes the villain. The band ends up having to defeat him to save the day. I am worried about this hero switch, especially since I can't think of any reference besides a pretty weak one: The Village. I would strongly appreciate any comment, opinion or critic you guys could make regarding this narrative structure, as well as any film or book reference where this structure is used. Thanks for reading!
