Class 1 tid bit – personality walks

Got some tips for personality walks!

What I suggest: record yourself just walking normal and think about how it feels. After, walk again changing one aspect of your walk — perhaps how fast you swing you leg forward. Then again, changing one thing, perhaps how high or forward you rotate your hips. Keep doing this…then think about what kind of emotion the new walk you just did conveys. By physically doing it, you’ll better understand what parts of a walk are changed in order to sell a certain personality/emotion.
