What goes into making a great character?

June 9th, 2009

The Big Lebowski - Jesus Quintana - Funny video clips are a click away

One of the most memorable characters from the film The Big Lebowski would have to be Jesus Quintana. Why is he so memorable? He’s got an interesting backstory, though we get to see very little of it. His actions, clothing, and accessories tell us so much about him as a person in so little time. Listen to John Turturro as he explains some of the steps he took in creating the character.

The same techniques work well. What is the character thinking, and why does he feel that way? Props, clothing choice, and movement all help fill us in on what a character is all about.
