Buffy the Vampire Slayer; Darth Vader; Elizabeth Bennett; Batman; Ms Marvel; Scott Pilgrim: a compelling character can elevate a story to a tale for the ages. But how do you create interesting three-dimensional characters that breathe, move and live? In this workshop, we’ll examine the building blocks of character development; play with different situations and environments, and look at what effect these things have on characters; and have a go at coming up with our own characters.
