Going deeper into the story is something that all actors must learn, developing it into second nature. To succeed you need to engage your imagination, the most important tool in your arsenal. You must discover it, nurture it and then develop it. But how exactly do you do that, especially in a 30 second script? In this workshop you will continue on the path started by Simply Acting, learning and further developing new tools and techniques designed to refine your craft. This class will teach you how to partner with your infinitely creative imagination. Using both dramatic and comedic longer form scripts from plays and movies – contemporary and historical – you’ll develop the ability to create the arc of a character’s story. By sussing that skill out in longer form, you’ll develop the muscle memory to go deeper into character, and you’ll be able to succinctly apply it to the shorter form of 30 and 60 second reads. This class will beautifully set you up for the more advanced levels of scene study classes by knowing exactly where your treasure chest of creativity lies and how to access and feed it, so you can break it down to break through.
