About the event
ABOUT THE CLASS
There are so many ways to attack your two takes. So many different thought processes. We'll go over ALL that I've heard of, all that YOU'VE heard of and then I'll let you know what's worked best for me over the years. We will then take the scripts that have been analyzed & formatted in Workshop One and you will see live how much easier it is to come up with and edit two perfect takes. In this workshop I'll help you figure out how to show ACTUAL RANGE and be UNDENIABLY YOU. And of course we'll be talking about and demonstrating the use of Improv! Workshop One is not a prerequisite for this class, but it is recommended. Workshop One can be found here.
