Perform Authentic Characters Flawlessly
This is a process that blends a traditional acting method with the psychology of personality that will help narrators who want to improve their character building skillset 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!
