Learn and excel in four different long-form formats. The Small Town (emotionally narrative driven on act play), La Ronde (thematic narrative, character-driven), Armando (classic montage with inspirational monologues) and the Character Slap (narrative and game driven combination) formats. Really dig into long-form both narratively and the linked, game-driven montage.
