What's your opinion on scene study classes where you don a completely new scene every week (off-book)? Do you think that's a bit much?
I'm going to be auditing Warner Loughlin and asked them how long we work on scenes for and the girl told me it's generally a new one every week...
I prefer that. I don't want to pay to do the same thing for a whole month.
And besides, that's more like film/tv. You're not going to get a month to learn a scene. You can get the final draft the day of shooting, so why not prepare in a quicker fashion?
Just learn your lines and pray that your partner does too and listen and react.
I also prefer a new scene every week.
I have had classes that ask you to keep bringing the same scene back. and I don't think I'd take a class like that ever again.
I'd say that's the case for most professional classes. A week is ample time especially if you can get in some rehearsal with your partner. More than a week (unless it is a Chekhov play) can sometimes feel like overkill.
I prefer that too, I get bored and if you don't love your scene it's nice to put it behind you.
Unless there's some important blocking or fight choreography, I don't like rehearsing.
From the classes that I audited so far. Chubbuck and Speiser have you do the same scene a few times but yea, I do agree that a scene every week is more like the rate tv actors have to go by... However, when I was at Annie Grindlay there were times I had trouble absorbing the material (also a new scene every week) and it wasn't even off book... I got to held the script and still struggled so it will take some getting used to going off book for sure.
