After SEVRAL long weeks of writing, researching, interviewing, and editing, I finally finished my capstone. For those who don’t know what capstone is, I will not review it three times so just look at my other blog posts.
So I finally finished my video and I am really proud of it. Mr. Casal, the tech teacher at my school, said that our Capstone project had to be better than the previous year, so I was worried that my video was not good enough.
So in my last blog post, I told you about my interview with my friend’s grandfather Rodger Hess, And I mentioned my aunt and uncle but I said that I was going to have my interview with them on the 19th of May. Well, right now it is June 13th, almost a month after my interview. Unfortunately, I did not get to interview my aunt because she was busy but I did get to interview my uncle whose name is Saamer Usmani from the Netflix series Inventing Anna.
He gave me great information on his experience in acting, and how he has witnessed acting changing over the years. I made sure to include him in my video. He told me, “Acting really responds to what is happening in society currently, and recently we’ve seen a shift towards more diversity in plays.”
Today we got ready for presenting, and the people who did ted talks and ignites had to record. Since I did WeVideo, I only had to introduce myself to the audience and had to tell the audience what it is about.
This will be my last blog post about capstone because what more can I add? Also, this will probably be my last blog post of the year. If you want more information about the history of acting here are a few good articles about Shakespeare:
