Sometimes, when I write a skript, or when I am planning to re-write something, it helps me when I do some sketches of a character or a scene before I start writing. That way I know already where I want to get to in terms of the mood and the situation the characters are currently going trough before I sit down at the writing table.
While I draw these mood boards, usually a lot of pictures and stories will pop up and when I get to the act of (re-)writing the only thing I have to do is connecting the dots – how the characters get from one scene to another.
Below you can see one of these mood sketches. It is for a horror movie called The Wendigo Effect. I have already written the first draft, but I will have to re-write it, because it was written as a horror animation film and I need to make it more shoot-able as a life action film.
