The course attempts to show students the entire process of creation of a dramatic character from the first reading of a script to the final outcome. This process should be viewed from the point of the actor since the beginning of his or her work, through the search of outer and inner characteristics of the character, to the final shooting of film material as a basis for the editor's work.

Crucial is the understanding of creative input of the actor and the director, as well as the editor's responsibility of maintaining this input and its comprehensibility in the final form. The same topic will be viewed from the point of the director, starting with the selection of actors, their inspiration and directing with regard to various personality types. Understanding of the actor's and director's work on the character is an important starting point for the work of the editor, who seemingly works with the finished material, but his or her participation on the outcome depends directly on his or her ability to become a part of the previous process. Knowledge from this seminar should be used and tested in practice in specialized exercises in which students themselves will assume the position of a director.
