 Character point of View

Weekend intensive

next course TBA

By allowing ourselves to be vulnerable, fearless and honest through our character’s point of view, we add layers and believability to our choices. How you see and navigate the world around you is unique and important and can translate into wonderful character choices.

By using what lies within us, we can create characters and beings that react more and think less. Through a series of exercises, we will be exploring what instinctively lives inside of us, and how that can add vulnerability and depth to our characters.
