A scene is the fundamental building block of a show or film. Where it occurs, how it contributes to the telling of the larger story and how it informs us to the nature of the characters is just a few things a scene actually does. Characters are not just dialogue delivery vehicles they are human beings, and just like real human beings, when they arrive in a scene they bring with them the sum of their life experience and a purpose for being there.
In this webinar we will take a look at a few scenes from a real production and explore all the possibilities of story and character through editing.
