Advanced Forms: The Movie (with Josh Telson)

Level 4 / Advanced

Sundays, November 20th - December 11th (4 Classes)
1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

The improvised movie is one of the most challenging long forms to do well, balancing comedy, organic improv, and narrative storytelling. In this 4-week course, we’ll give you all the tools you need to do it, and do it well!

We’ll dissect the basic structure of any film and map this to improv. We’ll run exercises that train our brain to recognize patterns and basic film tropes to ‘cheat’ our way through the narrative aspects of an improvised movie. Students will learn to use both dynamic physical acting and detailed live directing to recreate the feel of watching an actual movie.

No film experience required (you don’t have to be a movie nerd to learn this form)!
