Level 2: Scene Development

The second course in our core curriculum takes a more focused look at 2-person scenes with an emphasis on character. Students will learn how to make instinctive choices, unpack information, and define their character's worldview. This is supported by exploring comedic ideas through tags and expanding patterns to create satisfying scenic montages.
