You Affect Me!

Sometimes we get so focused on the idea of the game that we forget that scenes are about affecting each other! In this class, we'll focus the first four weeks on doing grounded, relationship-based first beats and how we can still do hilarious second beats off of those. The last four weeks will focus on bringing that work into premise-y first beats and using the same technique to come up with even more hilarious second beats!

Does not meet March 26 or April 9.
