DIY TV Program

Fo my DIY TV Program, I think I did well on my fluency  because when I listen it to the video it was very clear and there were not much disfluent part and this made the audience easier to understand.

I think I should improve on, my talking speed because sometime it was bit quick when I was rushing! I could also improve on, remembering the note because I was keep looking at the iPad and not looking at the audience. This will affect the audience because they will not know that I’m talking to the audience. Therefore, maybe instead of using my iPad, I can use the palm to card and write down the key word.

 

I really enjoyed doing this unit! I hope that we could do it again!

Speech Reflcetion

I think that I did pretty well on my hand gesture because I used a lot of them during the speech. This is very important because if the audience couldn’t understand what I’m talking about, then they will know with my body language and my hand gesture.

I think I could improve on fluency during the speech because it looks like I was bit nervous during the speech. This could makes the audience bit difficult to understand. Before I said that if I have a good body language or hand gesture, the audience could understand what I’m trying to talk. However, what if I didn’t do the body language and hand gesture? That will be a huge problem! Therefore, I think I should also work on my fluency to make it to a perfect  speech!

Mime Scene Reflection

I think in our group did pretty well on staging. However I think we need to improve facing ourselves to the audience.

I think we were using our space okay because we were keep thinking about how should make our mime better every time. However, we should used more time practicing.

All of us in our group except for Se’a didn’t interact with Se’a that much because we were able to act choosing a book and fight in that space.

I interacted with Cailey, Connor and Victor a lot. However, nobody really interacted with Se’a. Only at the beginning Cailey touched her head.

The setting of our mime was believable. Also fighting over a book is believable because in the library people might want to read the same book. There was one part that was not believable. It was when Cailey was ripping the book pages. I thought that how could she rip pages from the same book for the whole time. Also, ripping the pages from the book in the library is not believable. Maybe next time, if we are doing a similar thing, we should not do that.

 

Drama Mime Door Reflection

First my partner was trying to open the door. However I was holding on the other side of the door so he could not come in. Then he tried so many ways to open the door such as katana, bombs and his karate punch and kick but the door still wouldn’t open. When I stopped listening the music, I stopped holding on the other side of the door and he fell through. Finally, I began to laugh.

I showed the size of small earphone by moving my fore finger and my thumb together and then pretended to put them in my ears. I showed the shape of smartphone by curving my four fingers and then I curved my thumb on the other side. My palm was flat as if holding on the screen. My partner showed the weight of a lot of dynamite by bending his knees down slowly, his legs was opened wide, his arms were wide and these things are telling us that he was carrying a lots of heavy dynamite.

I think it successful because it was easy to understand what we were communicating. I know this because people were laughing at the right places. However, I want improve by not laughing during the mime.
