The Movie Form with Will McLaughlin
 

The Movie is a longform that involves six to nine improvisers performing a fully improvised 30-minute movie in a particular genre. Actors use screenplay language, cinematography and editing techniques to create a fully realized film in abbreviated form. Students will have genre assignments each week to study the techniques of particular genres and certain iconic filmmakers. From the small, philosophical indie to the box office busting car chase movie; students will duplicate the movie experience for audiences in half the time and half the price.  


Students will perform in one class performance at UCB Theatre Franklin. 

Class Size: 16 students
