Character Performance
In Character Performance, students explore how to make a character seem alive and how to craft a believable dialogue performance. Now that the students are familiar with body mechanics and pantomime body acting, they are ready to tackle the challenge of full dialogue acting. Students learn clarity of acting choices, and how to make a believable performance.

Students animate a scene using an audio clip that has been approved by their instructor using acting choices, strong storytelling poses, motivated action, and convincing body movement. Applying the direction from the instructor, students learn how to breathe life into 3D characters. Students learn the importance of acting and reaction, choreography, and controlling the audience's attention.
1 - Choosing audio clip.
2 - Planning your shot.
