C3? The Documentary with Billy Merritt
An Improvised Documentary in the style of Christopher Guest and Errol Morris. This class will focus on improvised interviews and scenes, taking you into the lives of the characters created, as well as the actual documentarians themselves. The form focuses on scene work, stage technique, and a presentational/representational connection to the audience.
