The Right Choice is the Active Choice with Megan Gray
Your scene is off to a great start, but then all of a sudden you feel stuck? Learn to make more active choices to propel you further into the scene
You can do anything in a scene — but do you find yourself talking more than you’re doing? You might be making lateral choices, rather than the active choices which can propel you and your scene partner forward.
This workshop will work on making the distinction between active and passive choices, the best way to make them in the scene, and how to react once their made.
