Developing a Humorous Interpretation Presentation : Humorous Interpretation: Gesture Development


Ok we are working on developing our characteristics
of our character for humorous. We’ve already established what we are going to do with the
voices now we need to take a look at body. Now when we’re picking the characteristics
of the body we’re not necessarily talking about maybe they slump over that would be
very difficult to transition back and forth to. You only have certain placements that
you’re going to place your characters, but you want to place each one of them differently.
When I’m this character I’m looking over here and when I’m this character I’m looking over
here. Alright so you’re going to place them in different places but you’re always going
to go back to that same place. So what can we do with our bodies that will help differentiate
the different characters. Well first we can take a look at gestures, maybe one of them
holds a drink, or maybe one of them holds a cigarette, or maybe one of them rubs and
fidgets their hands. Or maybe one of them puts their hair behind their ears but come
up with different physical gestures that you can identify with each character. But you
must remain consistent and keep those gestures with those work with your face, what does
the face of a certain character look like. Are they maybe kind they of look up or are
they maybe really big eyes. What is it that you can do with your face to separate the
different characters. So you have established those voices, established those mannerisms
and now we’re ready to look at the dialog and that’s going to be the whole big part
of our humorous interp is our dialog, and I’m going to talk about that next.

  • Ahhhh, it's so much more than this…

    Stumbling upon this was a fluke, but something so much more than this… It may be mannerisms and gestures, but also please remember to make characters relatable and realistic. The best characters are the ones that the audience can relate to!
