The Outer Limits of Inner Life
Building strong, credible characters who engage our empathy requires a dynamic understanding of their inner life. Such characters often combine both real-world solidity and an almost otherworldly sense of the mysterious. In this two-day workshop, David Corbett will guide students through a variety of in-depth exercises to build characters who both reward expectation and yet "consistently surprise." The classwork will focus on recognizing important personal themes based on reactions to film and fiction, learning how to use people in one's own life for raw material, and delving into personal experiences of profound emotional impact. Though the class is not group therapy, students should be prepared for intense, insightful, responsible, emotionally demanding give-and-take.
