FREE LECTURE – How to Improvise On Set

FREE LECTURE – How to Improvise on Set 

Have you ever been told “Now, let’s try another take where you improvise the scene”? Or “ Can you make up something funny at the end?” 

Chances are you have heard this from casting directors in auditions as well as from directors on set. More and more actors are asked to come up with brilliant improvisations on the job whether they are trained in the art of improv or not.

In this FREE LECTURE, three-time comedy award winner and writer for hit TV show, Adam Cawley teaches you how to masterfully improvise when asked to do so on a professional film or television set, especially if you don’t have years of training in improv technique.  

Learn to come up with excellent material on the spot!  Adam will teach you what you need to know when asked to improvise, as well as the unspoken do’s and don’ts for improvising on a professional project.

*What are the circumstances under which I may be asked to improv on set?
*If I am working alongside a series regular or celebrity actor and they start improvising out of nowhere, what should I do?
*Am I allowed to go off-script and improvise if the director hasn’t asked me to?
*How do I know when I am crossing a line or taking an improv too far?
*What if I am bad at improv or terrified of it?
*How will I know what is expected of me on set in terms of improv?
*What if I am not funny or clever by nature?

Tune in to our free lecture to find out the answer to all these questions and more! 
There will also be a Q & A section where you can ask Adam any follow-up questions! Feel free to leave us a question or two when you register. Your question will stay anonymous and we will get to as many of these as we can.
