In any scene, the first few beats are the most crucial. So often when our scenes fail, the reason can be found in the platform – those initial moments when we are establishing who, what, and where we are. We get bogged down in offers. We are unsure of who we are. Our environment is vague and uncertain. And because of these reasons (and many others), our scenes fail to launch. This workshop is about jumping on offers early, making big choices, and maximizing the potential of the platform: those initial all-important beats where we get all the information we need to build a compelling scene.
