Character Based Improvisation Process       5 day Workshop
Character Based Improvisations
with Rob Marchand
ZAGREB, 19-23 OCTOBER 2018

A 5 day intensive workshop for actors, directors, filmmakers and writers.

The workshop explores the Character-based Improvisation Process, a means of creating detailed, complex characters, whether working on conventional scripted material, ensemble scenes or improvised dramas –

it can be used for creating entire films from scratch as well. 

(It’s the process British director Mike Leigh uses to create his films.)


The CBI process allows actors and filmmakers greater creative freedom; it empowers and liberates: actors achieve performances that are spontaneous, immediate and truthful; directors are able to maintain a creative overview and to build on what the actor does. Both actors and filmmakers benefit from the creative partnership formed through CBI Process.
