Sat, Nov 18, 2017 10:00am-6pm & Sun, Nov 19, 2017 10am-6:00pm

On the campus of AFI

What lies beneath a character's behavior?

Find out how you and your characters operate as a "System of Selves" at our newest Character Mapping Intensive the weekend of November 18th and 19th on the campus of AFI. 

Join us on Saturday and Sunday from 10-6pm and learn how both you and your character's inner voices operate and motivate. You'll get psychological tools to make sense of yourself and any character -  no matter how crazy or unrelatable you or they seem.

We'll dive deep to navigate the complex network of inner selves we all have and identify the burdens and gifts that drive our motivations. A variety of personality typing systems are offered to create a multi-faceted character while avoiding stereotypes.

There's no better toolbox than Character Mapping for creating characters and finding your Self.  You'll also learn self-care practices so, as a storyteller, you know where the characters end and you begin.
