GCSE Drama: The Five People You Meet in Heaven coursework evaluation sample

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Evaluation section - The 5 People you meet in Heaven Name: 1. Person 1 - The Blue Man - Evaluate your drama showing the connection between the Blue Man and Eddie. Our drama worked well because our group had the advantage of having three people in the group, which meant we could create a drama different from anybody else's and develop the side range of idea we all had. However, working within a group of three when only two characters were needed, also meant it was harder to convey the emotion between The Blue Man and Eddie. The acting was good but we could have improved as some members of the group were not as focused as others. This could have been because we had to work hard to change and re-evaluate the main ideas of the drama as we had to work effectively in a trio. ...read more.

In an ideal world, I would have a background of a sunny walking trail (as this is suitable to the scene in which we set out still image), then in tableaux two the background would turn into a stormy grey. ...read more.

Conclusion

In an ideal world, I would have more actors performing in the last scene as extras. When the friends finally meet after years of growing apart, it would look good if we had a crowd of bustling people that the main trio had to push past in order to escape an awkward meeting. However, we would need to think of ideas of how we could set apart the friends from the extras; we could consider using different clothing, spotlights or something else. Also, I would have the projection of the cloud turn into a completely different image at each stage of the friends' life. For example; when they are children-clouds hovering above an open field, when they are teenagers-a graffiti brick wall, when they are young adults-a university campus, and when they are adults-an upmarket cafe or restaurant of some sort. 5. Person 5 - Tala - Evaluate the most moving part of Tala's story for you - explain WHY it was effective and How. ...read more.
