We are pleased to present our new Characterization webinar:
Characterization, Memorization and Controlled Terror
This program provides 120 minutes of instruction plus several hours set aside for creating dramas using the skills and techniques brought forward in the video presentation.
This webinar contains basically the same materials as you would receive by attending our regional workshops, minus the travelling costs. The format of this webinar allows you much more flexibility and more opportunity for reworking areas of difficulty and concern.
Throughout this webinar the leaders take you through the process of “building” each component of a character, with emphasis on making the character “come alive” in the mind of the performer, and thereby to the benefit of those who watch the performance. Bible characters and also contemporary characters are created on the spot, but using a consistent and straightforward process, making the performer comfortable with her character. All of this is combined with stage movement, voice, concentration and overall focus.
A substantial time is spent on memorization technique and also the importance of the rehearsal process, (what should and should not be handled in the rehearsal).
This webinar is aimed at the performer but is equally valuable to the director as well, and will put all team members “on the same page” in the ministry.

This program may be used in a group setting or for individual instruction, and may be used as one session or split over many sessions. You will note that lecture sessions will be followed by creating a drama using the skills from the lecture. Pause the video at that time and perform the drama.
While not essential, we highly recommend that you have the DramaClub Training Manual, the Countdown to CurtainUp Manual and the Improv Manual since some of the activities in the video refer to instruction found in those manuals.
