There comes a point when I need a visual aid to write my characters. Working on my script for the Industry Insider Screenwriting Contest I’ve got six major characters and twice as many minor ones (apparently I love writing more characters than I can manage) So to keep them all straight I tend to create Bio Cards, picture on the front of a 3x5 card and profile on the back.

And in the process of fantasy casting my script I come across actors that inspire different directions I can take the characters and plot that wouldn’t have come about otherwise.

And so here it is: Hero, love interest, father, guardian, antagonist, alternate love interest…?

Fun stuff!
