The Spokane! This long form will allow you the pleasure of immediate gratification. Through gifting, listening and support you can see character development appear before your eyes using tag outs, cut toe, and cut backs all built around a central narrative. The Spokane (sometimes called the Delicate Flower, sometimes the Family Guy) is a long form structure that travels in real time along a single scene while cutting to (and cutting back from) various specifics about certain characters as we learn more about them through the original scene. Imagine the hub of a wheel with several spokes extending from it. The form allows us to see and do exactly what we are talking about while continually returning to a grounded scene that facilitates more and funnier behavior.

Note: Does not meet January  20 or February 17.
