Revision- To add, subtract or change your draft. The best creators do multiple revisions before they call something final.

How do I know what needs to be revised?

  • This final performance needs to be something that you’re proud of.
  • Look at the length of your film? How can I condense?
  • Look at the expert example- How does my scene compare to the model.
  • How can I make my performance more lifelike? Props, wardrobe, memorizing lines?
