I have casted my characters and we started character work last week. I am going to start some computer renderings of the character’s surroundings (for example their rooms can tell us a lot about them).
On the video side of things I was struggling with solidifying what exactly I wanted my <Background> section to be. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go the route of the background of the story (meaning why I wrote it and why it’s important) or if I wanted to go the route of back ground WITHIN the story (meaning the world of the story’s demographics). I want to focus on the ins and outs of the city. How many people are in the city? What’s the major religion? Do they have an airport? Public transit? What’s their school structure? How are the streets set up? What is the history of the city? What’s the economy?
For the aesthetic section I’m in the process of creating a few original songs that will aid in conveying the vibe.
