‘Character-Based Improvisation’ Workshop


This workshop is based on the Mike Leigh process of approaching filmmaking through character development. There are two strands running simultaneously, one for actors, one for directors. Actors create detailed, complex characters, building them over several days; directors get a Masterclass in the process, and are then let loose with the actors!

CBI is a workshop of full of invention, imagination and discovering invaluable acting tools.

Marchand has taught many of the actors working on our screens today. The CBI workshop has seen Marchand tour internationally at various acting schools, including NIDA, VCA and 16th Street.

This is an adult workshop – 10 places available for actors and 4 for directors.
