Today we will be discussing arrangement and workshopping our 30sec elevator pitches.


Using the parts of arrangement we have discussed in class, let’s identify the parts in the greensboro memo on T-Square.

B) We are going to work on two aspects of our 30 second Elevator Pitches.

  1. Breathing and Enunciation

weve all seen at least one movie about flesh-eating zombies taking over my personal favorite is Resident Evil but where do zombies come from and why do they love eating brains so much the word zombie comes from Haitian and New Orleans voodoo origins although its meaning has changed slightly over the years it refers to a human corpse mysteriously reanimated to serve the undead through ancient voodoo and folk-lore traditions shows like the Walking Dead were born in movies shows and literature zombies are often depicted as being created by an infectious virus which is passed on via bites and contact with bodily fluids Harvard psychiatrist Steven Schlozman wrote a fictional medical paper on the zombies presented in Night of the Living Dead and refers to the condition as Ataxic Neurodegenerative Satiety Deficiency Syndrome caused by an infectious agent

2. Staging

We will be performing our 30 sec speeches on a laptop to practice lighting, eye contact, and background.

A background should be interesting with out distracting the viewer.  For example, a viewer does not want to be looking up your nose or staring at your unmade bed.
