I found another video on Vimeo about acting and not having to use words to express what is happening, what a character is feeling, or what they are thinking. The video is called George Clooney Doesn't Need Words. It's true, you don't need words to tell a story. I am thinking that we could use this technique in our PSA's next quarter, our 4th quarter projects, or in the various STN competitions. It basically shows reactions of George Clooney that show almost exactly what's going on, without any words. You can figure most of them out, and that's how those wordless sections should be. I know that my 4th quarter project did not do so well because we used way too much dialogue and not enough silence and reactions. Well, anyway, here's the video with all of the reactions, great examples of what words should be in videos, silent.
I am in 8th grade in my school's Advanced Media class. I love this class and I have been having lots of fun in it. This past year we went to San Diego, where STN was held, and the year before it was in Orlando. This year it was in Atlanta, Georgia.
