In this lesson, Jason Turmeric will teach you about blocking techniques and how to use them to produce a realistic performance. Blocking is the art of organizing elements within a frame and is essential to the story being told. Jason will go through 4 questions to ask yourself when blocking a scene: why is the character moving, where is the character moving, when does the character move, and how does the character move. He will also discuss how to maintain the artistic integrity of a scene while still achieving the desired goal. Finally, he will discuss how to make sure the actors are comfortable and getting involved in the business of the scene.
