Online course: Scenic Writing and Character Development

Apply for the online course "Scenic Writing and Character Development" until 24 May 2020!

The deluders - an identity experiment. Five normal people decide to take part in an experiment. For four weeks they will be someone else. They will dress differently, speak differently, do different things. They will discard all their habits and slip themselves into somebody else's shoes. They will record this process on video. At the heart of it all is the question: Do I decide who I want to be? Do I create myself and my reality or am I the result and plaything of the circumstances in which I live? Is it possible to change from one moment to the other?

This question or scenic framework is the starting point for the course "Scenic Writing and Character Development". In individual coaching sessions, online group sessions, acting tutorials and film tutorials you will gain insights into the development of characters and solo scenes. Each participant will develop two to three characters and will be individually accompanied in finding roles and writing short scenes as well as playing in front of the camera. The results will be put together in two short films to form a story.

Requirements: Fun and interest in independently developing roles and writing short texts, as well as playing and directing these roles and scenes in front of the camera.

Application: We are looking forward to your application, which you can submit using the form below together with a letter of motivation (max. 1 page) by 20 May 2020! Tanja Otolski will select ten applicants by 24 May 2020 who will be contacted on 25 May 2020. Please tell us in your letter of motivation why you are interested in this course and what your experience with theatre/film/scene writing is.
