Playing the Long Game
The One Act, a single long scene in the same space and time, like an act of a play with no blackouts, is a wonderful way to produce real, grounded characters and environments where nothing is wasted. Learn how to integrate subtle, patience play into an engaging piece.
Expand on this by moving into Monoscenes, a secret Harold using hidden edits to find games within your scene to explore, heighten and return to. Finally, The Pretty Flower where you mix the patience of a Monoscene and speed of tag run to explore the ripple effects and worlds created by your games and characters.
