PAFT 272 Television Script Analysis

This course is a continuation and deepening of the student's understanding of the value of analyzing text in order to discover who the characters are, what happens to them, the world they "live" in, to become the teller of their story. More complex scripts and characters with a rich sub-world, hinted at but not explained, will be introduced, as well as "bad" scripts that are over-explained and obvious so the actor needs to create something behind tbe words, flesh them out and give them a texture oflife. All the separate elements are gieaned, each of them understood and explored in how they work individually and in concert, then they are fit together in a balanced interpretation.
