I’ve always loved this idea: making a fiction collage of each character, complete with the actor prototype in mind. I’m doing it now for the television version of Straight Up and Dirty. I love this exercise, to know the contents of each character’s desk drawer, nightstand, or handbag. To create a mood board, or inspiration board, to see visuals, to know of all the chairs in the world, the one they’d pick would look like this, that on a menu, they’d order that. I love the details and quirks, seeing each of their obsessions. Where they hope to travel next, their favorite accessory, a photo of their dog. It’s what makes us who we are, all this stuff, or even the lack of stuff. I’m including the real photo of each person, along with an actor prototype, their interior design choices, obsessions, imperfections, things that help define them. Getting their quirks in. It’s so much fun. I’ll post my own collage later. But in the meanwhile, if you had to create a collage of objects and pictures that told someone who you were and what you liked, what would be tacked up on your collage? What are the telling little details?
