Learn the how, why, and what to do, from some of the industry’s greatest animators.

In Capturing The Heart Of A Performance, we’ll be breaking down everything that makes up a performance, the who’s, what’s, and why’s. Coming from a background in theatre and improv comedy, getting to the core of a performance and being able to communicate it clearly, is the crux of building believable scenes. We will go over tips and tools to be able to use when trying to analyze a scene and how to best act it out. Later in the presentation we will be going over my workflow in a scene and how each of the principles can apply to thinking and developing a truthful and entertaining performance.
