• Reenact a scene from a film that made someone cry or laugh or something…
• Reenact an historic text
• Reenact an Oscar acceptance speech, miss teen America interview
• Reenact a news interview / a news item / a historic moment
• Reenact the moment before a crime (get crime info from news blotter, etc,)
• Reenact an event from your childhood, from your relatives childhood, etc.
Ideas so far…
Okay, so I have been thinking a little bit more about this. I am relieved to know that a successful piece (in terms of the assignment) does not necessarily have to be goofy or super silly. Well at least, that is not the goal….phew! Now I feel like I can be way more creative, even if I end up including some silly elements.
- What if I reenacted an interview, but was silent on specific words….
- Who do I like listening to and what can I do with their characters? Dear old Larry King, I love Oprah, Tyra is okay. I like how all three of them are all very genuine and act like real people. It never feels like what they say is scripted…..
- what if I reenacted a leaders speech, well part of it and repeated a phrase the number of years he has been in power…but which one? http://www.newsplayer.com/Leaders-Interviews#
or it can be positive. Instead of putting down someone, you can praise their work for humanity..
