ACTRA DGC Directing and Acting Workshop with Sean Garrity

Sponsored by DGC and ACTRA

Using Improvisation To Unlock Scenes & Characters

So you think you can’t improvise, you’re wrong. Films from “On the Waterfront” to “Kramer vs. Kramer” to “Super Bad” make extensive use of improvisation on set and in prep to explore material, build character, and create authentic dialogue. Improv is an effective tool to unlock scenes, discover problems in writing, finesse characters and craft memorable, believable dialogue.

In this workshop, we will explore how to make use of improv as both a filmmaker and an actor. A brief discussion, and screening of film clips will be followed by hands-on improvisation exercises.

SOLD OUT: Free – preregistration was required; online on GFF website or APP or by calling. Maximum number of participants: 7 directors and 14 actors.
