This first 2 minute performance went well. I wasn't nervous yet I felt butterflies in my stomach. The hard thing about this performance is that I had a be an animal which is hard because I cant relate to animals. Specially a bird. Also we couldn't use probs which made it hard for the audience to figure out what we were.
I was not nervous on my monologue performance. On Sunday night I went on YouTube and analysed breaking up scenes. Most of the scenes the actors looked down and stared. I created my monologue long enough to last 2:00 minutes(the amount required).
I appreciate that you were nervous. That's what were here to build confidence up against! That said, you did it! My recommendation is working on vocal infection and pacing to match the dynamic shifts of the text. While your story had dramatic shifts, your vocal performance came across flat in comparison.
while i was presenting my set design I felt like my presentation went by fast and when I finished I had new ideas on what I should of said.
In order to prepare for my monologue I watched breaking up videos in you tube. Like movie (TV shows) scenes. I also reviewed it by preforming in front of the mirror. I wanted feedback on my voice .. I believe voice is more powerful then movement.
I am more confident on preforming to an audience. I dont get nerves anymore. I want my voice to not go from high and low i want my voice to stay high while preforming.
My puppet would look kinda like resurrected ghost. It is meant to look scary. I decided to make a scary looking puppet because Halloween is right across the corner. Also my puppet will have a deep scary voice more like whispering. It would be able to be manipulated easily by its resounding and pure evil is his satisfaction.
I believe i struggled making the cloth more than the face. The face took longer to make tho. The teeth were a struggle to because i tried to make them look as normal as possible and yet they seem like they are pooping out. I worked more on the face because I think the face should stand out more since i was going to use black cloth and it isn't as notice able. I mean mostly everybody is using black cloth for there puppet outfit and i wanted my puppet to stand out. I think my puppet face came out just as i pictured it .. i felt that was my accomplishment.
I believe that I preformed well, I think I was able to dominate my puppet well and most of the time it had movement. It was hard to change from a gentle voice to a dark and ashy voice, while I was practicing my voices I was thinking of making my puppet have this low oxygen respiratory system but while I was preform I forgot so I didn't preformed it. I was impressed by other preforms, I notice that most individuals who are afraid when they act alone were stronger actors when there faces weren't shown and they were working with a group. Also the voice they impersonate was impressive i would have never realized they were able to project such voices .
One person's work could be so highly claimed because it is unique and it is still realistic to peoples feelings now days, it is famous for its plots. I wouldn't mind takings on one of his famous scenes for my next project but I do believe it will be difficult to memorize the script because of the language .
I will be making costumes designs for Theseus and Thisbe. Theseus will be having gold and red because he has a high statue and i was think something like a suit from Jupiter descendants. Thisbe will be wearing nutural colors but they wont be rags, i am not sure of the color yet but i was thinking about dresses from Reign around the era of Queen Elizabeth.
me gusta tu idea para tus personajes eres muy casual.
muy bien hechos tus trabaos valeria
I was absent on Friday therefore i wasn't able to preform but if i would of preformed i know that i wont have all my script memorized because it the prologue script is really long when it comes to presenting the characters in Midsummer dream
