    Default Do you think it's good to foreshadow a twist or no?

    For my script, there is a twist in it, where basically a character you think is good, turns out to be bad, and pulling the strings, sort of deal.

    I thought of some ways to foreshadow it and drop some hints along the way, but I'm kind of wondering if that's the way to go... Cause I could perhaps try to hide it as much as possible and not do any foreshadowing, and try to make it as unexpected as possible.

    But which approach do you think is better? I think they have their pros and cons, and not really sure. For one thing, the less foreshadowing, the less budget it will be cause the hints I came up with involve needing an additional character, where as if I choose not to foreshadow, that's one less actor, and less shoot time.

    But if foreshadowing is a good thing, then perhaps I should spend the extra budget. But what do you think?

    I don't think there's one single, right answer. If you do it well, it can be very effective. If not...
