It's done. Our successful first semester is already over.
Last week we already had our written and practical exams. It was very interesting to see, how much better we all got in different classes. Especially in VPS (Voice Production Speech) was very obvious, that everyone of us were talking a lot more clear then before. In Stage Combat we had to learn a choreography in a team of two and had to perform it in front of two other classes. It was a lot of fun, even I got killed in the end. ;-) Also did we had to perform our monologues again and we got graded after. As my scene partner didn't participate in the classes I had to change my partner shortly before. But it actually was easier then I expected, because our class really works together. Because everybody already has a lot of work, I felt bad to give someone even more work. In Acting for Camera we had to film a scene and I got good feedback, which helped me a lot, because during the last weeks I didn't had a good feeling about it. I was always to nervous. But that changed somehow and I actually did the best performance of my whole first semester.
But my biggest compliment this week I got from our oldest teacher Stu Levin (over 90 years old) in Film Survey. As I told him that I was very thankful he gave me a note back which said:
"It is I who should be thanking you, you are one of those student who inspire me to continue working. Your reports have been consistently insightful.".
This week we also had to perform "Sundown Beach" with all my classmates. It was very interesting because you could see how different you can act it. This was very helpful and interesting for our start in to the acting business.
As longer as I am here, as more obvious it gets that it was the right choice to get here. It always gets easier and it makes more and more fun. I really like getting up and going to school, what I definitely couldn't say about me before. ;-) But each day is even more interesting then the one before, because every day I learn something new.
Now I say goodbye to the stressful week I had and then I am very ready for my second semester.
