Straightforward and readable, The Scene Study Guide Book is a practical, step-by-step guide that runs from the analysis of basic story structure - including conflict and story arc - to making choices - including physical and psychological action. It includes chapters on selecting scenes, partnering, and scoring a script, along with a first-rate list of contemporary scenes to use. The Scene Study Guide Book explores the process of scene work, from first read - through to blocking to taking tes and using them effectively. It addresses what to look for in a class, in a teacher, and in a partner. In short, it covers most of the questions and situations an actor in a scene study class might need help with.
