Just gonna quickly analyse EVERYTHING for you.
I have gone over things as they've come up, but It will probably be best to gather it all up and get some key parts together on here. I love talking positively about my self so this will be easy...
1 - Workshop.
Not yet happened. See, this is easy.
2 - Tracks.
I have delivered 4 tracks over this project. 3 of them were mixed and mastered by someone else and I think one of my key strengths through that process was my communication. It is harry to describe what you don't want, but not so easy to describe what you want. I've had a really good back and forth with Tobias in which we are developing a really good understanding now of how we both work and what we expect from each other. We've planned to make more music together. The fourth track isn't about audio quality whatsoever, it was put together in a morning with the aim to raise some money, I'm proud of the song more than any I've other written. It's a subject I never thought I'd be exploring anytime soon. It also makes me want to never 'force' a lyric again. I don't want to ever write a line just for the rhyme - it has to have meaning. Not that I do that a lot, but I have a few lines that I cringe every time I sing them as they are pointless and empty emotions.
4 - The Show.
I've done a better analysis of the show HERE But the key strengths from this I think are my networking skills with the company Ratio Studios and the delivery of the show. I've had a lot of feedback saying that it felt like they were actually at a live show for the first time during lockdown, this is mostly due to the quality of technical equipment.
5 - The 'Zoom' Sketch.
I wrote this for a different medium and then quickly had to transfer it over which was pretty stressful, but I really enjoyed the process. And I think the end result is great, I much prefer Gareth's version to mine, however some have said they prefer mine. I have also used the script for this sketch as a tool to network with other actors. I have emailed it to Sue from the Performing Arts department at UOG and she forwarded it on. Still waiting for a response from the students but its a start.
Something that I think I'd like to highlight is my change in persona as araby on social media.
Before this project I would share things as Araby with a professional and formal vibe. I would try to make it sound proper just in case someone professional was watching - not that that really means anything!
I would then share it on my personal profile with a witty comment or casual remark - creating a clear line between Araby and David. But I think that the Araby 'character' needs to be more consistent with when he's on stage, which is essentially just a nervous version of me, telling crappy jokes in an attempt to hide my nerves.
So I have started thinking of what I would say on stage if I was presenting something and then adding that to the Facebook post - For example the above picture of the make believe video and caption along side it - I'm letting the David come out in the social media araby now as well as on stage.
