About the event

Sooooo Emo with Jonny Nelson


This workshop teaches you how to use emotion as the "magic bullet" to finding your scene. Stop talking about things that don't matter while desperately trying to come up with a joke. Instead learn how to create compelling well acted scenes that utilize emotion to raise the stakes, heighten the comedy, cause the audience to invest, and guide your choices. Learn to play with emotion to help you find the arch of your scene.
