Drama speech reflection

Well, in drama class we made a speech talking about an important person in our lives. Here is my speech:


I don’t think i was going too fast or too slow because i could understand it when i was watching it and when i was presenting it to the class, they weren’t making any faces or using there hands to say “Slow down”.



I think i paused at the right time because every time i was starting a new topic ( for me its: talking everyday, time diff/ daily lives, and etc).  I think maybe i went a little bit to fast in the beginning because when i said ” My best friends name was Alison” i messed up at “was” because i was talking a little to fast. I would give myself a 5/8 if i had to grade myself.


facial expression:

In the beginning i made a mistake by moving my head a lot or tilting it. Maybe it wasnt a mistake maybe it was a good thing?! I did pop my eyes out which made it look weird but it was still part of  facial expressions.


Hand movement:

I used hand movement but only when i messed up. I also shrugged my shoulders a lot. I think i should have smiled more and talk louder but this connects to pace and tone.


The questions:

My best skill was facial expressions because i twitched my eye and tilted my head. I should improve on hand movement because for the topic for my speech i think it requires hand movement. i would rate my speech as 4/8.


English: Different Shots and Angles

So, in English class we are doing a film study. We were taking different shots and angles of pictures. I was in Akiko’s, Kate’s, and Adelyn’s group. Here are the shots I learned and took:

 – the eye shot

Landscape shot
This is the landscape shot because it is taken from a far distance and has the background of the setting.
 – long shot
 – medium shot
 – close up
 – Extreme close up
The Angles i learned:
 – Bird’s eye view
 – High angle
 – high level
 – Low angle
 – Worm’s eye view (under view)
We were on the roof of our school taking shots and angles. What I think went well was when we took the pictures and what type of pictures because we did a worm’s eye view, a bird’s eye view and a landscape shot.
Worm's eye view
This picture is the worm’s eye view because it is taken from the bottom
Bird's eye view
This picture is the bird’s eye view because it is taken from a high level.
