The Movie Form with Johnny Meeks 
The Movie is a long-form that involves six to nine improvisers performing a fully improvised 30-minute movie in a particular genre. Performers use the language and techniques of screenplays and filmmaking to present things on stage that would be impossible to present physically. Through description, you will be able to create everything from breathtakingly beautiful sunsets to battle scenes featuring thousands of people.
