Movie Trailer Reflection

1. My best skill was Human Drama because I was able to exaggerate my lines by emphasizing places and also sounding happy and scared at the right moments.

2. I should improve on no plot spoilers because in the middle of the trailer, we kind of spoiled what will happen by giving hints.
3. I would rate my movie trailer as a 5 out of 8 because it had too much dialogue and it gave away the story.

The Best Things about My Speech
Embed your video in a blog entry and comment on the following, taking into consideration the three areas of delivery –
modulation (volume, pitch, pace, pause, projection, emphasis and inflection); physicality (posture, gesture, facial expression; use of palm card); and content (structure, information, relevance to topic) – you may not need to comment
on all of these areas. Answer these questions:
1. My best skill was projection because I was able to talk loudly and clearly. Also I think I was able to keep my pace steady by pausing where there were periods or commas.
2. I should improve on information because when I spoke my speech was too short so I had to add more to the middle. Also, I think I should improve on taking risks so that I can emphasise where it is dramatic, exciting, sad, or happy. When I was speaking, I was all monotone because I was very shy.
3. I would rate my speech as 5 out of 8 because I was not able to emphasise well and my speech was too short for because it was about one minute and twenty seconds long.

3. Another speech which was captivating was Rob’s speech because he emphasised a lot by laughing where there were funny things and slowing down at sand parts. He also looked at everybody and projected his voice well. He didn’t have any mistakes and was able to say everything in a steady and easy to understand pace. He did not fidget with his hands at all while he was giving his presentation.

Drama offer and accept

  1. Improvisation is creating a work or piece at that moment without any preparation. It is often in the arts like Dance, Drama, Music, and Visual Art. Also improvisation is creating an acted scene on the spot without any rehearsal usually from an idea or suggestion or a scenario from the audience. Improvisation relies on the actors following the formula of Offer + Accept= Scene. In other words, an actor who offers an idea to another should accept that and use it in the scene.
  2. Making offers is important in improvisation because it moves the scene on. Accepting offers is important in improvisation because it makes it clear for the audience. An actor should always name what they are talking about in a scene. They should never use the word it.Listening is important because it shows that you know what is going on. Also the audience would know what character you are. Stakes are important in improvisation because it makes the audience know who or what you are acting to be. If you start cracking up, the audience would not know what you are acting to be.
  3. I accepted by not saying no to when Mikey was saying lets go canoeing. Also I accepted him saying we should run away from the cobra. I was not able to pretend to be a real character because I laughed in some parts and I also could not do my role seriously.
  4. I could have improved by actually getting into the scene because I laughed in the middle of my act. I could do this by not smiling when there is a serious scene or not cracking up when I am singing. Also, I should turn around and look at the audience by not showing my back to people.
