Are you tired of watching different groups play the same ten short-form games? Let’s break the mold together! Instead of trying to fit into the box of “classic short form,” we’re gonna crack it wide open and create our own games. We’ll identify the types of games you like most, discuss your unique interests, and combine this information to create new games which highlight your natural strengths. Or - if you prefer longer forms - we can make a midform! We’ll discuss the essentials of plot structure and techniques for editing and transitions, identify the types of narratives you most enjoy, and create and share our new structures in an epic showcase. Maybe you'll stick to the rules of ‘classic improv,’ or maybe you'll use props, costumes, and music. The possibilities are endless!
Students will learn:
  • The basic elements of popular long and short form pieces
  • Creative scene editing
  • How to build short form games and construct an original mid-form
