SPECIAL DCM WORKSHOP: The Funny & The Familiar: Improvising w/ purpose with Joe Hartzler
Find more funny in your scenes by establishing familiar, realistic specifics, and learn to strike the balance between the two- too much of one without the other makes for boring scenework. This is a Long-form improv workshop with an emphasis on game, and generating information to help ground scenes in reality. By breaking scenes into two parts: The Funny & The Familiar, you'll never find yourself stuck again. Ever. I promise.
