Almost Maine- Exploring the text

Does the play have a clear subject matter, theme or issue?

The story of almost Maine has multiple different scenes which all include a relationship between two different people, these relationships may be tense or laid back however it is ultimately about love. A reader may interpret the story as just an entertainment piece (which it is). But if somebody analyzed the piece, they would find the similarities about every scene.

Is there a single character’s point of view that guides the story? Or is it a multi-person narrative?

This story is a multi-person narrative because it follows multiple points of views in one connected story, just in different scenes.

Over what period of time does the action take place?

Near the beginning of the story, the writer says the story can be interpreted in any time frame, the creator optimized the story so that it can be from any time period by not specifying how he travels around and objects (i.e phones) he interacts with.

Where are the scenes situated?

The scene is in a town that apparently is not actually a real town because it is not organized. This place is called Almost Maine. The name symbolizes the scene called “prologue” because they almost fall in love but in the end, they don’t and end up in love. Main represents love in this case. Although this place is considered small and irrelevant it has the most beautiful winters which include northern skies and snow.

What is the genre?

Because the story is ultimately about love I think it falls in the romance genre.

my dialogue

  1. Hey, Dad. I just wanted to tell how much I appreciate what you did for me.  I know it wasn’t easy for you, so thank you. Look, I know you and me don’t exactly see eye-to-eye on certain things.  Hell, we don’t see eye-to-eye on just about anything.  But Dad, I’ve come to believe that I’ve got it in me to be somebody in this world.  And it’s not because I’m so different from you either.  It’s cause I‘m the same.  I can be just as hard-headed and just as tough.  I only hope I can be as good a man as you are.  I mean, sure, Dr. Von Bron’s a great scientist.  But he isn’t my hero.

 

acting day 1

In my eyes in the first class was all about getting to know one another and feeling comfortable expressing our emotions in front of others. We did this by doing multiple activities that could ease your way into this class. I found this particularly useful because I am not always comfortable acting in front of people I don’t/ barely know. This way we got to know each other and confidently show our skills and weaknesses in acting and naturalism. When acting I felt free because I was able to express myself in whatever way I wanted. I am looking forward to learning new acting techniques and skills!

Calm to Pumped

Day 2
I worked on Creativity and innovation because there is creativity and innovation needed to make a trap song out an alarm. This requires creativity because it is challenging to make a catchy song out of only alarms.

Day 3
Today I came up with my theme for the song which was the stress of waking up to an alarm. I adjusted to my theme by recording screams of pain and annoying noises. Not only that but I carried on my alarm beat from yesterday.

Day 4

Today I decided to Change my song because I was not happy with it, I decided to go with the song “Don’t worry be happy”. I sought feedback from my mom to ask her if my alarm song was good and what should I change, she gave me some feedback and I applied that to my new song. This shows my innovation and willpower to be better.

Day 5
Today I finally Finished my Song added my finishing touches and I added some unique ideas such as repeating words to show creativity. I made a chill song into a trap music song, this shows how I broke the rules of making a song.

Summary
I decided to go with Creativity and innovation because I made lots of mistakes and to make up for those mistakes, I had to be creative. Also, Since I decided to make a remix of “Don’t worry be happy”, I had to be innovative to make a beat drop on a repetitive song so that it was not like any other song.
