Defining the physical characteristics of the main characters allowed me to begin to develop a relationship with them on which I could build in order to draw out their emotions and motivations.
Kasey, Simon and Ahmad play a profound role in each other’s lives and the relationship that evolves between the three of them provides a rich insight into their darkness.
These storyboards served as the pivot point of all advance work I did on the trilogy. While the story evolved tremendously from the point of idea even to the finishing of the first draft, Kasey, Simon and Ahmad remained solid and their personalities grew – for me – into fascinating character studies of the profound scars left by power, fundamentalism and belief structure on the human heart.
