You have less than 1.5 seconds to establish 3 elements in your client’s mind: Backstory, Rapport, & the Unanswerable Question. This class will guide you through the process of cementing your haunt in their experience though story and character design. Class time will be divided into 4 parts: History, Theory, Framing, and Application. This is an information-dense presentation - students should be alert, and prepared to take notes, work in groups, and physically move within their comfort level. Class level: Any level learner
