this week i have learned to become more comfortable with my classmates when it come to our activities and how well and easily we can work together when it comes to random group activities
this week i have learned how to cooperate with my classmates more and create a silent skit using random characters that we had chosen in our test before and to somehow create a creative and interesting play to gain confidence towards our audience to better our acting skills
Regarding your Group Mimed Performance: At first you appeared a bit nervous and confused, but that's because your character was meant to be lost, right? From lost to scared to angry to terrified... I didn't see these emotional changes in your physicality or facial expressions. Connecting deeply to your character will perhaps allow you to express them a bit easier.
my character is stitch from the movie lilo and stitch, i would physicalize this character thru emotions, and language. i will be preparing to present by looking over my work to better improve. the feedback i would like is how well does my work sound and if it sounds like its missing something
Regarding you Monologue Performance: Despite your chewing gum you had nice projection of voice. Your characterization when doing Stitch's voice was great. What tonality and cadence would Lilo's voice take that different than your own? Next step to to connect to the scene as you get out of your script.
i liked you piece on that you wrote about i think it was very creative and i loved your voice at the end
i believe i did very well on my monologue especially with how much thought i had put into it, when writing i wanted to make it a bit suspenseful, when preparing i wanted to add in the voice of stitch and when preforming i felt a little nervous but mainly confident in my work.
I loved your monologue and how you really got into character with stitch towards the end. It also had a very emotional story line that i loved following.
my college goal would be to go to community college and then transfer to a UC and get a doctorates degree so i can pursue a career in the medical area and possibly after when i get a job i can possibly go back for another degree in another area for more future possibilities
i find the performing arts ancient culture very interesting and i believe that the masks are still used today so they dont loose touch with their roots and give a older affect on the play
one persons work could be so highly acclaimed because like Shakespeares work it gave us a huge insight in the world of drama, his work shows slight inspiration and it shows the amount of work he put into it just to perfect it to its needs. i feel slightly nervous about taking one of his scenes for the next class project because Shakespeares work can be difficult to comprehend and it can be difficult to remember
the costume that i recall is the costume for the character shrek in skrek the musical. the outfit had fabric to look dirty and ragged to help with the look of an oger living out in the forest with whatever he could use. i believe that the costumer was trying to give off the oger and outdoor look with different fabrics as if it gave a patchy look.
the performing piece i am performing for my final scene is about a dramatic reality show like therapy session between a couple and one is pregnant with someone else baby and for the pregnant character we will have a fake pregnant belly made and i will be the therapist
Regarding you final scene "Let's Be Honest": I'm so glad that this was your last scene in the class... because you and the team knocked it out of the park. Each of the characters had their own distinct qualities and the plot was developed to fun heights and a conclusion that was unforeseen. Your role as teh therapist was very fitting to the performance you portrayed. From the look (great hair style, went great with teh coat) to the clam and measured demeanor, your character was a rock. And the dry humor was super funny to me... "Well these things happen..." Ah, and your handy work on the baby-bump was awesome. You should be very pleased with your performance. Congratulations on your work in this class, but more importantly on graduating! You rock!
