El Nuevo Houdini Reflection

What did I do inside class that helped me be successful 

  1. I payed a lot of attention when we were having a class read.
  2. Making sure that I asked questions when I didn’t understand a word.

What did I do outside of class that helped me be successful 

  1. I revised the story in my head and wrote down whatever I remembered and then I saw what words needed to be corrected and which phrases can be said in a different way.
  2. I made pictures for all structures and make sure I understand all of them.

What are some strategies you want to try for the future

  1. In class: continue doing what I’m doing
  2. Outside of Class: continue what I’m doing 


    Scene Study- Monday’s Child II 

    October 6

    I think our blocking and staging was very effective and useful because we had a great use of the props. We made it a point to not cross or make the movement . We didn’t hide each other and our furniture was put diagonally. I think I did a decent job at showing my character through my voice and a bit through my physical movement. I think my relationship with the other character was very meaningful because we made it very clear that the child is very curious and the woman is just tying to remember. My collaboration with the other actor was awesome, specially because of our well merged improvising. We made up for each other when somebody forgot the lines. 

    • I am proud of having a good voice that fit the character.        
    • I am also proud of my facial expressions, specially the mirror one. 
    • I wish that I use more physical movement to express my character even more deeply.
