We had our final two sessions of our Lead Creative School A Midsummer Night's Dream project over the last two weeks.
Our main focus has been on creating an end production to showcase everything that we have worked on during the project. We decided a few weeks back that we would take on the challenge of exploring the wider world of the fairies within the play via the use of documentaries.
We continued to develop our understanding of drama techniques with Gareth and Ronnie and Ally by playing some games. We have enjoyed learning how to play these games with some particular favourites being the number game (even though we couldn't get any higher than nine) and popcorn.
We developed these further by looking at the hello/goodbye game, where we took the clapping element of popcorn and transferred it to saying hello or goodbye dependent on what side of the circle we were on. This also developed our way of saying words to express emotions fully as we had to say them in different ways with appropriately matched responses.
We then began developing our storyboards for our group documentaries based on the fairy worlds. We decided what aspects of the fairy world we were going to be working on and started storyboarding and scripting them. We also decided what type of documentary we would be making, whether it would be a nature style one, or a fly on the wall one with a narrator who would interact with the fairies.
We are still in the process of making these documentaries and will add them to the blog/youtube channel when they are ready.
