All of the Platform 2c projects
the initial Web series then the feature films and more recently
Wayward High have a totally unique organic self growth/generating story line.
What we do is Richard, Alyson, and
sometimes students come up with ideas for scenes and stories. We then
further develop these story lines with improvisation in the various
acting classes at
Northern Film and Drama over a number of weeks.
Once we have an improvisation we are
happy with that improvisation gets filmed and the script is then written from the improvisation so often even we don't know exactly
where we are going next and that helps to generate some very
original and interesting storylines and scripts.
Even when filming on set it is not
unusual to improvise addition sections and add on's if when filming
we feel it needs it.
All in all that allows us to produce
some of the most unique story lines and natural acting you will ever
see and that ultimately is our objective.
