Prompts and provocations for directors thinking about characters before casting has begun

Character tool for directors

The character tool contains prompts and provocations for directors keen to do things differently. They are for use at the point when you are first beginning to think about character for a production, before casting has begun. They are designed to challenge and expand your thinking about the characters and who could play them.

Your thoughts in response to the questions may be something you scribble in a notebook, simply mull over, or could provide a springboard for conversations with your casting director or other colleagues.
