Wicked One-Man Play

We had to select 8 or more stars of additional audio assignments this week and my first additional one is One-Man Play which is worth 3 1/2 stars. For this assignment you had to use Soundcloud and act out a scene from a play by yourself. I had a really …

The Show Must Go On

The biggest project on this week’s checklist was finding three audio challenges that I could do on SoundCloud, with a combined difficulty rating of at least stars. Believe it or not, I actually had a couple of extra entries left over after I completed the necessary tasks, with mixed results; …

So as I was searching the assignment bank going, ummm yeah:

And then I found this little gem! A one man (woman in this case) play. So I decided to do this for Andrea, but with her dead husband, so that her level of crazy is really conveyed to you …

3..2..1.. Action!

I used the episode from the Twilight Zone: Time Enough At Last for my play! I used the end part of part 1 of the episode. I thought this would be very to do with just my voice! I liked the back and forth! I loved how it goes from …

The One-Man Play- 4 Stars

Okay, so for the rest of my stars this week, I decided to do this audio assignment I found randomly. I chose to do my favourite play, “No Exit.” It’s a really good play, so I recommend you read it (you know, unless you’re not into existentialist writing, then I …

Macbeth Act 1 Scene 1

This is an extremely amazing rendition of Macbeth’s opening scene. It’s was so good, my parents were laughing in the other room and my dog didn’t even bother to look up. I was asked to do this by the One-Man Play assignment. I had to act out a scene from…

The One-Man Play

For this Audio Assignment I chose to do a scene from a Broadway play my high school drama teacher introduced me to called In the Heights. I chose to do the scene when Nina is coming home and trying to figure out how to explain to her parents that she…

The One Man Play

http://soundcloud.com/eric_greenlaw/time-stands-still
I had a ton of fun with this assignment.  I recently had to present a scene from Time Stands Still by Donald Margulies in one of my classes so I decided to use it for this assignment.  It was entertaining doing different voices for each character, Richard using my…

Exit, pursued by Creeper Oberon

My One-Girl Shakespeare Scene ended up starring the creepiest version of Oberon ever (also a profusion of tinkly fairy sound effects). The scene I chose was from “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” and involves Hermia confronting Demetrius over the whereabouts of her lover, Lysander. When Oberon enters to discover that that…

Charlie, You Won!

This is 4 star audio assignment,”The One-Man Play.” It is audio assignment 567.
The instructions were:
“Act out a scene from a play by yourself, using different voices for different characters. Have fun with this!”
I loved this assignment! The hardest part was choosing which scene to actually do. After…

Skit scatting

On of my favorite movies to quote is The Grinch . The cartoon movie isn’t as funny as the Jim Carry version. I don’t know why but I just think JIm Carry is so funny in that movie with all the clever Dr. Sues lines. The voice and mannerisms of…

Remix #2 (Audio): Son, How’s Your Day? (One-Man Play/Scene)

This is more like a scene than a play. It’s from one of my favorite films, The Breakfast Club, when Bender presents his version of Brian’s supposedly ideal home life.
Here’s my remix:

And here’s the original scene, the best version I could find:…

ds106 Audio Assignments

I spent a good portion of one day working on ds106 assignments, just sitting at my computer, thinking, planning, searching, recording, rejecting, and trying again. Somehow, just sitting in that way was rough on my back and by dinner I could barely walk. (I’ve had lower back problems in the…

Tutorial for One-Man Play (Son, How’s Your Day?)

My attempt at a one-man play was a pretty entertaining and generally pain-free task.
1. After some brainstorming, I settled on a scene from The Breakfast Club–I really wanted to do something from popular film. (When I do this assignment again, it’s going to be this scene from A Few…
