Procedure: Each morning is devoted to one of the ingredients in question. The afternoon gives the opportunity to put them into practice in longer and longer improvisations as the week progresses. On the first day, the improvisations last 20 minutes. On the last day we will come to hour-long improvisations.
Method: The course requires each participant to be paradoxically available: controlled letting go. At first we will gradually deconstruct the reflexes of short improvisation which are not appropriate for long improvisation in order to focus on the moment. Do not seek to play improvisation but let it play with us. Discover that improvisation has its own intelligence. Then, little by little, we will approach certain screenwriting rules essential to the construction of a story of approximately one hour. The goal is to become aware of what has been created spontaneously, unconsciously in order to then strengthen and develop it consciously.
Tools: The course is never perfectly identical from one time to another, but the tools covered are generally the following: emotion, sincerity, listening beyond words, places and their impact on the imagination, the economy of words or how to play without explaining, the objectives, the dilemma, the passage to action, the different techniques of ellipses and their scriptwriting interests...
Warning : Given the preponderant importance of working on emotions within the course, it is not recommended for people who have difficulty expressing emotions or reading them in others.
