Cinemaprov

with Tim Redmond

 

We use movies in impro a lot. We tinker with tropes, role-play familiar scenarios, grab some genre, and even sometimes use cinematic language in our play.
 "Cut to..." 
But, what if we go deeper?
Much deeper. 
 
"Cinemaprov," is an intensive term exploring the full craft and opportunities that cinema offers us. We'll delve into camera POV, the edit, manipulation of audience focus, use of score, light & movement  and explore ways to apply it to our stagecraft.  We'll play with all the tricks of shape, sound, and shadow that film-makers exploit so well. 
Can we re-create the feel of a Leone close-up?
A Kurosawa vista?
 
Yes we can.
Yes we will.
 
It will be physical.
It will be intensely collaborative.
 
and...
 
Action!
