Hey guys! Lookin for some advice on conducting reharsals for talent for my short film , Dead ED.
You can check details on it on the Facebook fan page here: https://www.facebook.com/DEADEDMOVIE
I have two main characters:
Khan - The protagonist, a man from the other side of the planet forced to work in the desert wastleands
ED - Khan's only companion, ED is a service droid designed to protect and clean the wasteland.
The relationship between these two characters is similar to a master and a loyal pet. Khan sees ED as something less than a best friend, and will learn ED's true value by the end of the story.
My dilemma here is that I have never worked with a character like ED's before. The script is well written with great opportunities for subtext, but the fact that the character is a robot conflicts with the idea of exploring these opportunities (in my mind at the moment)
I haven't gone through rehearsals yet, and I figured that I would explore this further with talent, but I would like to hear other input as well. I have gone through my analyzation, but this seems to be the only hiccup for me.
What kind of exercises do you suggest for this situation?
