Keep the energy of your set constantly moving by eliminating the interruption of sweep edits. Weave your scenes together with pivots, transformation and narration. Strengthen your sets narratively and thematically by hopping between scenes when they're closest to each other. Learn techniques that apply to any style of improv—lending themselves particularly well to physical players and teams who move swiftly. Allow your sets to be as cohesive as possible, tie it all together with a big bow, and send it home with your audience as a present.

See Dark Sneak Love Action perform live the night before this workshop, and make sure to also check out the Character workshop they’re doing after this one!
