Let’s face it, you come to LA to get into the movies – well, here you go. In this class you’ll learn to be the actor, writer, director and special effects artist you always wanted to be.
Veteran teacher and performer Paul Vaillancourt has logged more hours with the Improvised Movie than perhaps anyone on the planet and he is bringing all that experience to this class.
In this class you are going to learn everything you need to know to improvise fun, exciting, on the fly movies in front of audience; story structure for coherent narratives, using camera angles to help tell (and sell) the story, working with the ensemble, techniques for making your characters more dynamic and engaging and how to bring special effects to life on stage.
The IMPROVISED MOVIE will be the signature form of Revolution Theater and this is your chance to get in on the ground floor!
