We are now just a few weeks away from bringing the actors in again to start developing fight scenes. Some of them received a roughing in this Friday at acting practice. We had a full house, with the four leads and Morrigan present.
We chose to focus on developing a select few scenes and, in so doing, stumbled upon some unscripted actions that enriched the scenes. People became so immersed in their parts that they would sometimes break with the script and do something entirely in character and entirely brilliant. The actors have taken full ownership of their characters, and I'm looking forward to seeing how all this plays out in the months and years to come.
