Today I am filming STAR OF THE NIGHT for real. This character, Mark, is not nervous!

 

Mark is laid-back, relaxed and has a son in his class.

He’s trying his best to work out his students.

He drinks beer and Irish whisky. Sometimes he brings it to his classroom.

He drinks black coffee.

Today we did Sophie’s character. She is a lot different than the previous characters.

The gestures are a lot more feminine than Mark and Madison. I’m really happy with the characters because they’re my own.

Sophie uses Shakespearian language which is easy and hard.

Julia Hales developed a goal setting workshop for MIXED REALITY artists and delivered it last week…

 

For my Sync Leadership I always want to help the other young artists to follow their dreams.

I have learnt to do goal setting with MIXED REALITY artists to map out their goals.

First I start by telling them my story about how I worked at achieving my goals.

I also ask them to DREAM BIG and dreaming big means you push yourself to achieve your dreams and to see your self in the future and to keep working in the future.

I also learnt to give them some exercises to help them to map out their goals on their own and in groups. I show them my example of setting my goals to follow as well.

We all worked together in groups over three days to set some new skills to get to their big dream.

The goal setting workshop went every well and everyone in the workshop is very happy and very excited that the workshop had helped them a lot to keep working on their big dreams.

I would like to keep doing more goals setting with other people and also people with Down Syndrome as well.

I worked with Danny, Lauren, Tina, Pat, Hugo, Verity, Cameron, Aidan and Sam.

I am currently working intensely with five artists from the Mixed Reality project. Patrick Carter, Tina Fielding, Lauren Marchbank, Danny Tuckey and Julia Hales.

Each artist has their own creative agenda and drive and my role as a facilitator is to assist each individual to realise their projects.

With an arts practice based in movement and film I am currently working on developing live dance and theatre performance outcomes with each person. Themes that have emerged throughout the workshopping process have been identity, culture and reality. What is real for you? What is your everyday reality? The work we have been creating is personal and revealing and has proved to be both challenging and rewarding for the artists and I.

Once we have formed the live performance material we will then move into working with technology and virtual reality. We will be looking at how each personal reality then manifests in an unnatural virtual world. This experimentation will then be incorporated with the live performance for some of the artists.
