Level 4 Improv: Characters, Characters, Characters!


Taught by Timmy Tamisiea
(Pre-requisite Level 3 Improv)


You’ve mastered “Yes, and…”. You’re a professional heightener. You can edit, tag out, create group mind and support your fellow scene partners like it’s no one’s business. Now you want to start creating memorable, multidimensional characters. In this course you will learn to quickly and efficiently create characters while leaving room to explore and grow during a scene. Using all your facilities (mind, body, voice) you’ll become an expert in inhabiting new and unexpected characters, creating a unique personal character style, and having a reserve of fun characters in your back pocket.
