Eric Hunicutt Workshop: Start in the Moment, Stay in the Moment
A Scenework Workshop
Building a strong scene is deceptively simple; from the very first moment, everything we need is available, yet often times we feel the need to invent rather than discover. This workshop focuses on being present right from the start, using the first thing that happens, and working together to build relationship, character, and context in an organic and efficient way. If you find yourself playing the scene you think you should be in, rather than exploring the scene you already are in, this class is for you!
