RELATIONSHIP TREE

Relationship Tree is a word you may not find in many acting books, neither will you hear a lot of acting coaches mention it. They may use a different term to describe it but I like to call it what it is, just to simplify it.

I am very sure a lot of you came across homework when you were much younger; where you were asked to draw a family tree. The family tree could start with your grandfather, who married your grandma, who gave birth to your mum and her siblings then your mum gave birth to you. You could be asked to draw a tree and each branch will represent a person or a generation. Some teachers go as far as asking students to paste a picture of the members of their family according to the hierarchy.

The same goes for this tool I call the RELATIONSHIP TREE in acting.

Whenever I receive a script to work on, I try to create a relationship tree just to make it easier for me to know the characters and the relationships they have or how they are connected to one another.
This way I don't have to flip many pages back to remember who a particular character is or what his role/function represents in the whole story.

It's a very simple tool you can use to make things more memorable to you. This can be drawn on a separate sheet of paper which you can attach to the script or on the last page of you script after the END.
I do this for scripts that have more than four or five major characters so that I don't confuse roles. 

The first thing I do is to list the names of the character and who they are.

After that, I then go ahead and draw the diagram that will make it very easy to understand what I have listed.

I hope you find this tool very useful as it has helped me a great deal.

Thank you for stopping by.
