For this Quackcast we decided to chat about quirks- the things that stand out about a character, help you remember them, get interested in them, traits that pick them out as individuals and can ALSO be used to point at deeper character traits! These are so useful in so many ways and really help to define a character as well as giving them a handle for the audience to latch on to. The idea was nicked from a newspost where Tantz goes into it with a lot more depth, so check that out too if you can! the cover image is from the Nazi General sketch by Smith a Jones- it's all based on quirks. This was Tantz's fantastic idea for a newspost. Speaking of Tantz, this newspost was recorded around the time of Greek independence day! Happy independence day to Greece!
The music for this week by our resident mastermind of a composer Gunwallace is Lola! -Where am I? Where…? The essence of cool, grooving into the night, dressed in cool white, all eyes on you, bathed in soft pastel light. Restless feet, throbbing, pulsing sound, stepping to the beat.
