SOLD OUT! Character Workshop - LEVEL 1
Don't waste time over-thinking characters, just do it! In this workshop, we'll explore simple, efficient tools to create fun, grounded characters with nothing more than a single line of dialogue. The tools we'll explore in this workshop will get you out of your character comfort zone, so you stop playing the same four characters over and over! We’ll cover how the character’s relationship to the environment can change a scene, as well as the traits that can make a good choice great, and a boring choice unforgettable. Register today with the link below! Workshop costs $20.

“I came to the workshop hoping to find help with developing an in depth character, and I left with the tools to create endless characters through specific, emotional mechanics.” - Kyle M.

“I came away with a whole toolbag full of great character tools! I left the workshop eager to try out everything I learned. I always thought I had characters down pretty well, but this workshop really got me thinking and starting to understand what makes a character great.” - Maria C.
