Intro to Character

In this two-part workshop students learn the basics of writing character. Session 1 we use improv exercises to generate character premises and participate in a pitch meeting. Session 2 we perform first drafts and get notes.

Students should bring three one-sentence pitches to Session 1 for characters they’d like to write. Students will have homework between the first and second session. 

Prerequisite: Have seen sketch comedy or a live character.
