The Video & Social Media Characters course is a four-week program from UCB that focuses on creating and refining solo character pieces that live on video and social media. If you want your character to be in the digital spotlight on Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, Twitter, or YouTube, this is the class for you.

Students discover how to craft short pieces that can stand on their own AND create recurring video characters complete with backstories and a social media presence. Original content will be primed for filming, uploading, and even adding to new or existing character reels.

Throughout the course, students will improve their writing, comedic timing, self-taping techniques, and video editing skills. By the time the month is up, performers will know how to create grounded & impactful characters, write more & better jokes, capitalize on new trends, and use apps to add depth to the content through backgrounds and environments.

In addition to improving their characters and stepping up their production game, students also pick up tips for finding and retaining an audience on social media.
