Create Characters Through Physicality

Explore bigger emotions and bigger physicality to create characters that are larger than life.

Do you usually find yourself in the realm of kings, queens, cowboys and other predictable characters in your scenes?

In this workshop you’ll create characters that hold onto perspective, have consistent reactions and develop patterns of behavior. You’ll expand the depth of these characters by exploring bigger emotions and physicality, ultimately unlocking your potential to create a variety of characters.

You’ll leave with tools to help you build strong, sustainable characters and skills to identify games through those characters and their relationship to others.

Originally from La Plata, MD, she has been told she has a southern twang, despite Maryland being a mid-Atlantic state. Here is a random list of things she loves: fat animals, watching Frasier on Netflix, nu-metal, the YouTube clip of John Travolta messing up Idina Menzel’s name at the Oscars, prairie dogs on Instagram, the theme song to Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper, Keanu Reeves, whispering the word “tits” at the end of the song “Merry Christmas Darling” by The Carpenters.
