Character

with Patrick Duffy

“I loved the course a lot and had a fun time 
each week!”

 

In Character, you will learn how to develop a character through exploration of your body, voice, emotions, attitudes and status. We will explore how your character relates to the other characters and how they react within the context of the situation.How characters navigate their wants, needs, point of view, morality and relationships trigger the audience’s perception and fuel the emotional engine of the story. Make stories pop with interesting and powerful character choices.
