We hear “Show, don’t tell” a lot, but are we taking it to heart? Get ready to move in this fun workshop that focuses on being patient (quiet) at the top of your scene and eventually being patient (quiet!) throughout your scene. We’ll use silence and music to make simple, fun, and funny scenes. By keeping your mouth shut and your ears and eyes open, you can find things in your scene you never knew were there.
