- Circumstances don't make
it work. Look for the element, hot, cold, etc.
Circumstances you bring to material. That is what the
scene is about: (they quarrel, they end up needing each other), play the difficulty. Don't turn it into an opera of sense memory. Just enough to show you are cold.
- Element missing: (They
wind-up falling in love.)
- How to plan the scene
from a showmanship point of view. What should be
happening here? What should be happening that is dramatic? Let's look at the
elements that are in the story.
- Missing element: (could be
any happy people.)
- Missing human element.
- Now you got all kinds of elements
that are dramatic. (Blue Moon)
- Time element.
- Whole element behavior, lift it off pages.
Didn't use all comedy elements
Element: set tone of scene, let audience know,
that they are to laugh.
"In the end, it
can't look like acting."
