Creating Compelling Characters
Starts 14 January 2019
What makes an actor truly great?
Your job as an actor is to bring scripted characters to life and make them live & breathe.
Sure, you as an actor can take on various attributes of a person, copy them, then mixed with your drama school technique, you deliver a character.
But is that character 3 dimensional? Or is it just paint by numbers? Ready to be delivered for the next soap opera?
Creating Compelling Characters gives you the steps, the tools and the skills to make your characters multi dimensional so that they breathe life into the script. It is a ‘how to guide’ in creating memorable screen characters.
CCC is open to all, but it is possibly better suited to established actors rather than beginners.
In this course, students will be taken through the myriad of steps to create their own characters, record them and distribute them.
By the end of the course you will have captured one of the roles you were born to play and have the steps and tools to create others.
Have you done our Self Taping School course where you are taught how to deliver cracking memorable self tapes?
Our Creating Compelling Characters course is our PhD course, comprising 5 weeks with three lessons a week with personalised mentoring at the end of every week.
Practice makes perfect is what we preach here at The Audition Technique.
It is only through trial and error can you grow and mature as actors. Hence, we have a strong focus on simply getting in front of the camera as often as possible.
Apart from our structured lessons, we have improvised exercises each week, constructing your characters piece by piece.
We record on Vimeo using this as our library with a Facebook page for interaction.
There are downloads and a live’ Q & A, where everyone can attend and ask questions.
The end of the course includes a one on one with Greg Apps to discuss your journey and your way forward.
