Beyond the Breakdown 240210

Creating Supportive Supporting Roles

Service Description

What would any show or film be without supporting characters? The protagonists' journey is only possible with the best friends, co-workers, neighbours, and antagonists that move the story along. They breathe life into the world, often stealing our hearts or getting the biggest laugh. Casting breakdowns provide us with key information about who these characters are and what function they serve in the story. This workshop looks beyond the breakdown, using a project's TONE and THEMES to analyze a script and make informed choices about how to play our supporting roles. They are called "Supporting" for a reason.... WE MUST FIND"SUPPORTIVE" CHOICES The term "Supporting Character" doesn't mean "further down the call sheet".  It means "Supporting the cause"  When you fully understand the overall goal of the show and how it relates to our lead, you are FREE to be wildly creative within a defined play space. Your Outline for this One Day Intensive: Discussion on Tone and Theme - what are they, and where can we find them? Scene Breakdown - how to analyze an audition scene for a supporting character. Eg. Why this scene? How does this scene reflect the show’s tone and theme, and how does my character fit into that? Participants choose a scene to break down and are given time to start putting the scene on its feet. Work is coached and filmed for future review
