Gerda – the young female character in Philip Osment’s Snow Queen – is 10 years old.
To create a character portal for her, I thought of her character as a writer would, but in the first person – as if she was creating her own detailed online presence.
I thought about the way children and young people think about themselves and the way writers, actors and directors approach characters in scripts.
I used real world tools to extend the fictional world of these theatrical characters, thinking in three ways:
As a writer
As a character
As your audience
In digital storytelling related to theatre shows, create platforms for your digital audience that allow them free rein to access the digital elements of the show.
