Characters with Julie Maddalena
Sign up now for our June Workshop: Characters with Julie Maddalena on Wednesday, June 2nd, from 5:30 - 7 pm PT!
Julie will work with several participants to demonstrate the magic of improvising to get off the page and into the character's skin. This includes getting comfortable with your voice and then calibrating into the character's voice. Once off the page and out of the way, you can take the next few steps to focus and elevate your characterization and your read, filtering emotions through the core of the character. This session will break down the mystery of a stand-out read that reflects both your unique sound and the heart and soul of the character! Take-aways:
You'll see how we can make peace with our unique version of the character
You'll be introduced to my personal Improvologue* technique You'll discover a road map that takes you from chasing emotions to emoting in character
You'll observe and experience how these very simple steps bring a character off the page and breath life into it
