Creating a character

You have to work at the BACK STORY.
 Much of this work will not go directly into the script but it is an essential foundation.
 You have to work on all details of the character - names, relations, what is in their bedroom and bedroom drawers.
 YOU HAVE TO LINK YOUR WORK ON CHARACTER DIRECTLY INTO RESULTS - IN THE SCRIPT.
 Typical character phrases - this will go directly into the script - and differentiate each character.
 
That means directly into how the characters speaks, and what the character speaks about.
 Find a hobby for each character - such as Inexperienced Boy's hobby interest in (for example) 'Dr Who' or 'Star Trek'. Whatever is currently fashionable.
