Scene Study 4+

    • $2.99



Scene Study is an incredibly easy way for actors to learn their lines, memorize scenes and rehearse for theater and film productions. Created by actors for actors, Scene Study frees you from the script to start actively listening and responding in the scene. By recording your cues lines, you practice listening for them right along with recalling your own.

Once you have a scene set up, save time by rehearsing while doing other activities. Combining other tasks with rehearsal enables deeper memorization of your lines and often provides a few unexpected insights to your character.

Getting started is easy. Simply create a production, add characters, then start recording your character's spoken and cue lines. Record the full lines for your scene partners or just the cue lines. Then start rehearsing!

Choose the character you wish to rehearse by muting them during playback and enjoy your own portable scene partner. Rehearse around the house or on the go, rehearse while driving or doing chores. It’s that easy!

Need to share with other actors

I love this app. Best way to learn lines at home without having to drive your wife crazy by asking her to play the other parts. Please develop a way for us to record scenes on one device and then share it with the other actors who also have Scene Study on their devices. You would sell a lot more apps that way.

One-trick pony. Quirky audio support. Buggy.

Does what it promises, but is very bare-bones. A bit of a one-trick pony. Given how long the app has been around and how limited it is, one gets the impression that it’s changed very little since its inception. NEED TO FIX: - At first there appeared to be no Bluetooth support for earbuds or headphones, but this was resolved after closing and reopening the app. - The default is the quiet phone speaker, not the loudspeaker, as if the developers expect you to hold the phone up to your ear the whole time! - There is a bug that occurs sometimes when re-recording lines, that just takes you back to the previous screen when you hit record. - No way to run through a production if the first scene is empty - Editing the last line in a scene, the options are hidden until you scroll down. They should be visible immediately after clicking the three dots. NICE TO HAVE: - Color coding for the characters - Collaboration - Actual written notes, markers, etc - Audio effects

Intuitive and helpful

I usually just use the Voice Memo app to record my scenes, but this app is SO MUCH BETTER than that. It’s super intuitive and easy to use (recording lines for each character is so easy - the setup of the recording screen is really user-friendly). It’s truly as effortless as using voice memos, BUT then all the characters are separated for you and you can rehearse with or without your own lines, and straight through all the scenes, which is SO helpful. I also appreciate the price - this app is worth every penny of the $4 I paid and then some. 10/10 will recommend this app to all my castmates.
