The first half is all about learning the foundational tools used in comedic film and tv, such as joke structure, anatomy of a sketch/scene, and character creation. The second half is all about the acting! Students will rehearse and tape the many forms of comedic Film and TV writing including 3 Cam, Single Cam, Dramedy, and the Movies! Mastering these skills opens the actors' range and expands opportunities to book. more. work! See you in class.
