Discovering the characters: Creating a Short Film: 04 Working with Actors

It's important for actors to understand the characters that they are playing. This includes understanding their overall objectives for the film, which is called a spine. The character's spine is the objective that drives them through all of their scene objectives and pushes them forward through obstacles. Most decisions about characters can be found once the spine is understood by the actor.
