Introduction

In our development phase we started off with a train station. We had all sorts of people. We had police, teenagers, lost people, foreign people, a pickpocket and old people. We also had people calling out the train times arrival and boarding. It was incredibly realistic. I played a man about thirty who had lost his daughter. I acted this out by constantly rubbing my face and itching my head in worry. I also looked quite down and upset as a man would. I asked people if they had seen a young girl with short blond hair and a red coat. A lot of people ignored me as they were busy trying to get from place to place. Then I was asked to act like a homeless person. Nobody but me knew that I had been introduced so that we could find out different peoples reactions. I felt sad and lonely. Despite the crowds of people you still felt isolated. I went and sat down quietly in a corner with my blazer as my blanket. I asked people for money most the looked down at me in discussed. ...read more.

Middle

I WANT TO MAKE A STAND!(stands up on the word stand and stomps foot loudly on the floor) I want to show these horrible people who I really am. What I am about. What my life is about. Yeah who I am.(still loud an strong) But who am I? What am I? (sighs and kneels down looking sad) I am a nothing. I used to be a 6 or a 7 before I was here. Living my life happily from day to day. (sitting up straight) But now look at me (in disgust) I am a 1 or even a 0 in society. Nobody gives a dam about me.(sadly spoken and looks down) I am a nothing, a no-one, a nobody to anyone (lays down and curls up looking sad). In there I used a series of levels. These levels represented my characters emotions. The two emotions were sadness and anger . I went up levels as my temper rose. This made people listen more and make them pay attention. Like my character would have wanted. When laid down I was sad and nobody would of wanted to listen. I also used facial expressions to show me feelings. ...read more.

Conclusion

I tried to show I was young and immature by acting like it. On one occasion my character called Joe pretended to trip up so he could splash lots of water all over Tat. He laughed really loud and said in a really sarcastic and patronising voice "Oh sorry." This was to show my characters evilness and hatred towards Tat. I also stood up above her whilst she sat down. This reflected the fact that I had more power than she had. The little boy who was on my side showed that I was only one sided. He acted as my conscious. Bitter and twisted in the head, not giving a dam how other people feel about my actions. On Tats side she had a friend who also acted as her conscious. She was caring and sweet but did have a bit of a temper/ Not much of one but a little one. She acted the facts why Tat thought she shouldn't leave. Tat her self acted the reasons why she should. If you were watching it from Tat's and Joe's eyes you would only see them. The other people were their thoughts not meant to be people at all. We could have had their thoughts being said out from the background. Elliot Rushen Development Phase. ...read more.
