There are an infinite number of ways to tell any story. Find your theme, know your characters, and you won’t get lost.
How do you find the theme? Ask yourself this question: why do I want to tell this story? Don’t let yourself off the hook with superficial answers - even if you think your answer is “tons of stuff explodes!” or “because thrillers are awesome and I want to make one!”, there’s something buried underneath. Stuff exploding could be about the unpredictability of life, or impermanence, or what you’re willing to risk for your beliefs. Thrillers are indeed awesome, but dig down and ask yourself what it is that underlies the elements you like.
Sometimes you’ll get notes or suggestions that would make for something interesting… but distracting. It can be fun to get lost in possibilities, but knowing your purpose - your theme - works like a compass when it’s time to buckle down and make it work.
There’s a total of six characters in the film - but 90% of screentime is with just the two leads, Rider and Tracker. It’s important for us to find the strongest actors possible for those two!
Er. I guess the strongest actors under 50 that we can get.
