I thought class went well today! It was very enjoyable to watch everyone put what they had created in motion. It was not as easy as it looked but I thought everyone did a great job! I found it interesting how different all of the scences were because when we first started this activity I thought that they would all be very similar. It was awesome how different they all turned out! It just shows how creative everyone is!
I thought all the groups did a really nice job today. Brian and Lauren were really funny and I don't think any of us really forced the conversation too much. I thought that most everyone was aware of the audience and while not all of us hit all the objects I think we all stayed in character even though at certain times things did get rather humourus.
I thought all the groups did really well in class today. My favorite probably when Matt faked the knee injury. It was the first time we really got to see his personality in his acting. He was really quick to his feet in coming up with ways to pick up Jenna. I also liked Ashley and Cory's scene. Their conversation didn't seem forced at all and it related to what they were doing. They really portrayed scene well. Can't wait for Tuesday.....
I really like dealing with place in class, as far as distinguishing where you are at to the audience. I think it's a very necessary skill in acting to be able to portray where you are at, possibly one of the most important. I also like distinguishing relationships, whether it's brothers, friends, or a guy trying to get with a girl. We either have been in those relationships or we know someone who has which helps the audience relate to the scene. Also I actually did like the substance acting today, how we shaped something out of the substance then passed it along, I thought that was pretty cool.
I had a lot of fun last class. I thought creating a scene was actually quite difficult, but I think the used-car scenerio went well. I found that even when I was planning out things to do when I went on stage, they did not happen the way that I planned. I felt that the scene moved quickly and I was just trying to keep up and keep it honest.
I really liked class tuesday. I am glad we are getting to the talking and acting at the same time. I think it is going to be harder but a lot more fun. I really like though how the course has gone because I think the professor has prepared us for this. I can't wait to see the other groups tomorrow and go myself with my awesome partner lol.
So this new exercise where we draw out our own floor plan seems to be pretty fun, its like were creating our own little world and we can put in it whatever we want, whatever emotion we want, and whatever situation we want. it should prove to be a challenge, but a fun one at that
