Finding a game to a scene and heightening that game is one way to make a successful scene. However, pattern play can often get folks stuck in their heads. We’ll spend less time thinking “What’s the game of this scene,” and more time actually playing it. Focus in on the simple improv behaviors that will help us create fun patterns, and rich, tight scenework.
