Special Guest Workshop: Second Beats with Sean Conroy

Special Guest Workshop: Second Beats with Sean Conroy, Sunday, Dec. 10, 3-6pm

Prerequisite: Level 3


Your opening was rich with information. Your first beats were hilarious. Your group game made sense, everybody participated, and it got edited at just the right time. It’s time to revisit the first beats in second beats.  Now what? In this workshop we’ll drill down on how to determine what the variables are in the first scene, types of second beats, what type works better in which situation, how to heighten rather than replaying the first beat, how to start the game as quickly as possible in second beats, how the backline can help heighten and when they shouldn’t, and how not to blow something out so far that you have nothing left in the third beat. Second beats are obviously crucial in a Harold, but just as important in a Monoscene, a Montage, or any other long form you decide to do.
