How To Develop Your Characters | The Third Step To Developing Your Script [Fundamentals: Episode 3]


Duration: 3m

Fundamentals is a 6-episode learning series that takes you step-by-step through the script development process. In the third episode, we'll show you how to develop the characters in your script.

To make your characters engaging and relatable, they need to act in a way that is consistent with an established background and personality. You get to know your characters the same way you get to know a real person – by spending time with them. A good way to start this process is with a character questionnaire – download the Celtx Character Questionnaire here
