I’ve been studying, performing, and teaching ‘Game of Scene’ technique for over twenty years. Different teachers and directors have given me different approaches as to finding and playing the game. In this class we will explore different ways to find and play game. Premise, organic, character, genre, learn to play them all, find which way works best for you.
