Character profile for my two characters

In this blog post I have created two character profiles for both of my main actors. This describes some of the character’s background and beliefs with also how they act. I wanted to make this so I know more about the character’s so I am able to make a better film because I know more about their head space. I feel that it also provides good context for the character’s to jump from. In reflection I feel that I should have done this early before filming but I feel that doing it now will still be good because I am still editing.
