I’m Michael Bradt for The Bit Theater. Remember when you’re playing a character that even though you’re showing only a moment of that character’s life, they existed prior to your scene, and they’ll exist after your scene. This means that they had a backstory before the scene started, and the actions they take in the scene will have consequences for them, even if we don’t see those consequences. If you keep in mind that the characters you create exist, you’ll have a much easier time remembering to give them a backstory and to make them believable, since their life has consequences. That’s your improv tip for the day. Stay safe, stay healthy, love each other, and I will see you next time.
