This episode was inspired by a discussion I had with another improviser about fast and slow edit moves. They were told by a teammate to edit faster. The answer I gave them was a bit of an opinionated monologue infodump, and I was told I should turn that monologue into a podcast.

So here we are.

What we're talking about today is edit moves, with focus on the speed of those edit moves and what it might have to do with your neurotype (ALL neurotypes. This means YOU.) That once you are confident and comfortable editing, and the form and style support it, edit moves can be dictated both by how you process information (bottom-up or top-down thinking), and preference.

They are different ways of editing. You might do both, and they’re both valid - what’s your default? What’s YOUR preference? Does it matter?

Let’s get niche. Go listen.

PLUGS: I have online improv classes starting in February at World’s Greatest Improv School (WGIS) that involves character stuff and a new form.

The Characters Only class covers character POV. Get drills in adding your character’s philosophy effectively in scenes.

And just announced a new class and show series where a new form will be introduced where you get to improvise a Morning Show! Focus in this series will be on character development, slick edit moves, and practicing in a new online show streaming format. Let’s get creative, experimental, and try new things!
