Let's make it different!
What about spending a whole week end in an amazing place, on the seaside, enjoying delicious food & wine and above all sharing all those beautiful things with Ed Hooks and his wide knowledge about Acting applied on animation?
The workshop will be over two half days and you'll just have to concentrate on this great experience. We'll provide food, accommodation and local transports.

Essential acting principles defined and explained
Scene structure (action-objective-obstacle/conflict)
How empathy works and why it is different from sympathy
Connections between thinking, emotion and physical action
Elements of storytelling
Heroes and villains
Character power centers and status transactions
The importance of an “adrenaline moment” in acting
