Pressure produces unusual effects, and this applies to your characters as well. Time to put them to the test!

In this class, we’ll explore character development through interrogatory methods. On the first day of the workshop, writers will develop their main characters’ backgrounds, values, psychology, inner lives, quirks of thinking, speech patterns, and other critical aspects through a question and answer format, guided by instructor Henry Lien throughout.

On the second day, students who want to volunteer in a method acting/improv exercise will take on the role of their main character in front of a live audience of their other classmates. In this persona, they’ll then pit themselves against the instructor, who will be playing the antagonist or another character, in a scorching argument, and let’s see what pressure reveals about these characters!

Did we mention our beloved instructor Henry Lien used to be a litigation attorney and law instructor?
