The Scenework Blueprint with Ella

What are the properties of a great film script, a Shakespearean play, and a wonderful improv scene? Go beyond ´beginning, middle and end´ to find the natural moments, curve and journey in your improv scene. From within our scene, we’ll start to identify the moments, beats and turning points and harness the power of the actor, writer and director to steer our way through. We will be working on when to dig deeper, when to change tack and when to leave space to reveal scenes that are confident, committed and convincing.
