The Coen Brothers make stories based on ordinary people trying to get ahead in extraordinary fashion and often failing spectacularly.
In this course we will learn how to build unique characters that feel real and push them into extreme situations to see how they react. You will learn how to improvise tension, violence and environments that feel real and full of character.
We will also borrow liberally from other stories with similar themes such as the Breaking Bad TV show and the films of Tarantino to create a story with your unique personality.
