Are your characters never brought back for callbacks? Are you first to be tagged out? It could be that you haven’t given yourself enough in the first scene. Or maybe you’ve been too supportive of your partner. In either case, you need to focus on you.
This workshop will work on finding the essence of your character, then maintaining and growing it. The best thing you can do for your partner is to give yourself something. Be specific, be detailed, make simple choices for yourself from the moment you step into a scene. Let those choices sink in, build on them, make your character a person that you’ll want to explore in every beat. Let’s find that together!
