About This Course

Understanding the importance of, and how to embody, the scene objective.

In this course, we examine how to develop the scene objective as an underlying force that impacts everything in the scene. Learn how to fully realize the scene objective not only it’s emotional form but also in its physical form. The course begins with examining the bases of an objective and builds on it, through exercises which allow the actor to practice freely living the objective, rather than holding on to it as a mental construct.
