Sig will be posting a number of scenes from his past and recent projects. Please go through the scenes located under GENERAL SIDES posted on the class page and choose the scene and the character that you like best (if there is more than one scene, please only choose ONE to prepare). Feel free to adapt the characters to suit your specific take on the role. Some characters have only one scene per side and some characters have more than one scene. If the role has more than one scene per side, pick only one scene per role, not the entire sides.
