About the event

Want the chance to show off your new skills? Students who attend all four festival workshops will have their own special showcase on Sunday, March 31 at 5pm!

In this class you are going to learn everything you need to know to improvise fun, exciting, on-the-fly movies in front of an audience; story structure for coherent narratives; using camera angles to help tell (and sell) the story; working with the ensemble; techniques for making your characters more dynamic and engaging; and how to bring special effects to life on stage.

This workshop is for you if:

  • You are an improviser and a fan of movies
  • You are interested in narrative improv of any sort
  • You are an improviser looking to really round out your education in improv
  • You are a screenwriter looking for a new way to loosen up, try new ideas, and have fun
  • You love telling stories
  • You are looking to expand your improv work in a way that no other longform will
