for drama, we did our elevator scene and here is it:
I did this scene together with Darshan, Emilee, Grace and Shion.
I think my whole group did a very good job of staying in their role during the scene. This was a great improvement of the character meeting of the girls because, they were out of their role at a moment because they were laughing. I think we also made it a bit more believable because of this. One stereotype I used in the scene is one of a sick person because I tried to look sick by coughing, not sitting up completely straight and not having a very happy smile on my face. Also I tried to let the doctor do the work like grabbing my arm and pushing my hand on my arm. This was simple but I think that did show my status well. I think my vocals helped a bit because I talked softly and did like I was weak. I think also I didn’t have any special relation with the others but the only one my character at least knew was the brain surgeon.
I also developed though the scene because at first I was coughing and saying nothing, but at the end I was actually the person who fixed the elevator because I was technician and told the doctor where to open something and then I fixed the elevator. By doing this I influenced and developed the scene and everyone in it a lot by myself even though I didn’t talk much during the scene.
I think during this unit I have made progress with staying completely in my role, this is because at the beginning of the unit I sometimes still showed a bit that I laughed in myself but I think in the elevator scene, I was completely in my role and didn’t get out of it. I think I have also learned good how to use stereotypes while acting, I showed that a bit during the scene too. I think the challenging part of this unit was organising everything for the scene with my group because we have talked a lot about how we wanted to have things. But finally we decided what we wanted to do and I think that made the scene good. Lastly, next time I could improve by facing the audience a bit more because during the scene at some points I was facing the side of the room and not the audience.
