LITFest19 Workshop #4 - Adding High Stakes
Time & Location
About The Event
We've all been there. The scene hits a lull and there's nowhere to go... But it doesn't have to be that way! Adding high stakes to a scene is easier than you think, even from the most mundane origins. Placing importance on your scene partner, giving your character secrets, as well as many other high stakes tactics will be taught during this workshop to avoid boring improv. Whether you're the hero facing the villain in the final act, or two people talking about their sack lunches: the moment can always be heightened! And your audiences will thank you for it.
