Position Play w/ Brian James O’Connell ONLINE (Workshop)

Listening. All improv depends upon it. But what are you actually listening for? Position. Brian James O’Connell teaches you the skills you need to find your “position” in the scene and then play it to the hilt. Topics include: “The Logical Person vs. The Absurd One”, “Playing Archetypes” “Mapping Characters” and many, many more. Learn how to play with anyone, anytime, anywhere in the world.

BOC (as his friends call him) is part of the improv powerhouse & comedy collective Dr. God, who recently completed their first feature film project BLOODSUCKING BASTARDS, starring Fran Kranz, Pedro Pascal, Joey Kern, Joel Murray, and Emma Fitzpatrick, which O’Connell directed (his third feature as a director) as well as co-writing the script with Dr. God. The film was the Opening Night Premiere at Slamdance in 2015 and is available now on Amazon Prime after it’s 15 city theatrical run along with a two year run on Showtime. Dr. God’s new animated series HELL DEN is currently available on SYFY Channel where they serve as the Creator, Executive Producers, Producers, Directors and Writers. Season 3 coming in 2023.
