Introduction

Synopsis: Romeo and Juliet. [gsce] ] Kimberly Sarah Donna Ranola How would you direct Act3 Scene 1 of Romeo and Juliet for a contemporary audience at the Globe Theatre. My Oral assessment revolved around how I would direct a modernised version of Romeo and Juliet based on Act3 Scene 1 to a contemporary audience.

I also wrote down powerful quotes from the play that I thought would be relevant to the oral assessment. However, I did analyse Act3 Scene 1 more than the rest of the acts and scenes, as in this particular task was more crucial. There were many processes used to help me complete this assessment. As I had missed a few of the stages, I did a lot of individual research and received help from my own sources, through the circumstances that I was facing. Quickly doing notes and brainstorms was the most easiest as I found doing this helped me map out what I was going to say to my teacher if she asked me certain questions. ...read more.

Conclusion

Throughout analysing the films, I did many notes on how the film directors tried to incorporate drama theatre into the films. It was very interesting to see the way they converted drama and English literature into the films and what era they were made in. As the whole assessment was about putting Romeo and Juliet into a modern re-enactment I looked around my area and London nowadays and looked at the major changes and the major similarities. Through looking at cross-fading I found my ideas through the use of drama, imagination and English literature. The combination is a good one as you can use a lot of emotion however, use a lot of cool theatre effects. Overall, the preparation required for this assessment was used and done in an extensively adequate way. ...read more.
