Drama Movie Trailer Reflection

1.My best skill

My best skill was that I communicated with my group about what we would say. In my group we made sure we knew what our character felt so that we would know what pitch and speed we should use in our sentences and I think I did well in that because, in the part that I say “WE NEED TO GET HELP” I said it in a way that you would know that the character is rushing or shouting. I also did well helping people on what to say next and trying to make it easier for them to say their part.

2.What I Should Improve on

I should improve on my concentration because I did concentrate but not enough and that effected my work and script making. I should have read the TSC more carefully so we knew exactly what to do, how long it should be and where we should submit our script. Because I wasn’t concentrating enough, we made some mistakes. For example, we made the trailer too short and wrote the script in the wrong place.

3.What I Would Rate myself out of 8/a trailer that appeals to me

I would rate myself a 5 out of 8 because our trailer was 36 seconds long but it had to be 1:30 in total. Also, the voices and narration were not loud enough; the music was louder than the voices and it was hard to hear.

I think the Friday the 17th movie trailer was very good because they used a lot of different peoples’ voices and was 2:03 so it was long enough. They used a lot of sound effects and spooky music to go with the feeling of the movie and I think they did very well making the trailer. I could, however, hear a lot of clicking sounds from after they stopped recording each voice and that was a problem.

4. A Different movie trailer that appeals to me

I like the Louisiana Bones trailer because they used different voices and you could tell that it was a comedy-action film because they were going on an adventure but they have funny parts in it, like one of the people ate the map. Their trailer was 58 seconds so it was shorter than it was supposed to be. I think it was a good trailer because you knew which voice went with each character. I think they did well picking music that was fast and funny, and they knew when to stop the music so that it sounded like a comedy and you would think, “Wait! What?.” They made sure they didn’t have clicking sounds in the trailer. I also think they did a good job not actually telling the listeners what the movie was about but giving them an interesting preview.

Improv Tournament Reflection

In the Improv Tournament I observed what Koumae did then made the sounds that matched with her actions. For example, when she took a selfie with Pia I said, ‘Lets take a selfie” so that it looked more like they took a selfie. In one part of the video I said,  “No, no, you can’t” and that made her move to Pia so that Koumae could act as if she were helping Pia by not making her walk on the rope. in the performance I said hi too much and that didn’t really change the activity that everybody was doing so I should have said other things instead of hi. I could also have made it more like what people would say when they do their tricks on the rope. I could have thought more about what I could say. These skills could help me in a performance like when I need to say something or make a sound I can think of different types of sounds and things to say that can go with what I am doing so that the audience can understand more about what I am performing and doing.


Drama Improv Reflection

What is Improvisation?

in Improvisation you have to accept every offer of idea in a scene. in Improvisation you have to name what character you are, try to explain what the character will do like if you are a dog bark or do something that that type of character will do in real life so people will understand what or who you are.


Improv Games

Students stand in a circle. On cue, they begin running (slowly!) in a clockwise direction, paying attention to one another and setting a reasonable pace.

At any time, any student may shout ”go!”at which point the entire circle changes running direction. You have to try not to smash or bump in to other player.
