Developing Stronger Characters for Your Sketches
This workshop will focus on different methods of creating solid characters for your sketches and then finding the best premise or environment for your character to play their game. We explore how POV and behavior is key to developing a strong character. No more bad doctor scenes or unjustified crazy man sketches, just pure funny character sketches you can be proud to put in your packets! Students can bring character sketches and/or pitches or nothing at all. It's up to you!

Prerequisite: Completion of UCB Sketch 101
