WHAT IS THIS?
Six videos – three in-depth deep-dives and three supplementary, and a read-along pdf handout covering all the main aspects of Fostering Characters™ – Role Exploration, The Solid Gold Brick Secret Question, the Character Development Arc, and the Narrator’s Repetition Exercise. Includes video footage of each exercise with actual students.
This is a process that blends a traditional acting methods with the psychology of personality that will help narrators who want to improve their character building skills to better understand the nuances of their characters and “get into their headspace” for more authentic-feeling acting – while also learning to quickly jump in and out of multiple characters seamlessly, without losing any of that authenticity!
We’ll start off with learning how to immediately understand and make characters “real” – even with a minimal amount of information. Then we’ll branch out into the relationships between the characters, and learn a method to uncover the subtext of any scene.
You will learn a character development formula that I’ve developed after years of acting classes, narration coaching and training, and through well over a hundred audiobooks – with some insight from my years of experience as a clinical therapist thrown in (the secret sauce!) to make this immediately relevant and useful to YOU – the audiobook narrator!
WHO SHOULD DO THIS?
Audiobook narrators who want to:
- Get inside the heads of your characters
- Deliver authentic performances every time
- Quickly and easily switch back and forth between characters
- Understand your character relationships, and the sub-text of each scene
