CREATIVE AND MEDIA
Duration: 1 hour
Unit 3: Artefact
INSTRUCTIONS: You are advised to spend 5 minutes to plan your creative
writing. You will need to apply all writing in this section to an artefact that you
made. Spend 40 minutes on this section. This section is worth 40 marks.
A) Write a poem OR a very short story about the pot you made. Your
writing could be set in the past or present. It may be an improvement
and extension of the piece you have already written.
You could think about:
- Who might have owned the pot?
- Was it precious to one or more people? Why?
- Did it cause a conflict between two or more people?
B) Evaluate your pot.
- Explain how you made it step-by-step
- To what extent does it meet the standard you aimed for? Explain
- How does it compare with the work of professionals you studied?
- What could you have done to improve it?
- Explain whether the pot tells the story you wanted it to.
1. Explain what contribution you have made to the performance during the
period from when your group started planning and researching to the
I think that I have made a large contribution to the whole performance by giving
ideas on what to do and what should be includes in the mime performance. For
example, I help create our miniature pair scenes and helped develop it. I also
contributed many ideas on what we could do for our main scene and structure it
together. Again we needed to reduce the time in our scene; I contributed ideas in
which we followed through with. As well as that, I made contribution to what
should go on between each scene.
During the making process of it all I made a storyboard so we could remember
what went where and could refer back to it when necessary. I also helped on
planning some of the rehearsals and trying to work through other student’s pre-
planned schedules (timetables for other lessons) to come to some agreement.
When the rehearsals was due I tried to find our group a free classroom to
rehears our performances.
Since I am a choreographer and a dancer I volunteered to create various dance
sequences for part of the bus scene. I did this with the help of my colleagues.
For our group scene, me and two other of my class mates created our own props
(banners or fan posters) that we needed for the opening scene. We made our
prop during lesson time in the art classrooms in order to make good use of it. To
promote the show we made posters to put around the school. This was one of
our ideas on promoting our show.
My attendance to all the rehearsal has good as I have not missed any of them.
This is because I know that hey are very important. I have tried my hardest on
carrying out my duties and trying to meet all of my deadlines. How ever I do think
that I could have improved on meeting my deadlines. A lot of alterations have
had to be done to our performance as a whole and I have pitched as many ideas
as I can. Not all of my ideas were taken on board but many of them were.
In order to ensure safety for everyone I our groups, I have been sensible when
doing things and we have all worked together as a team.
2. Evaluate you contribution to the performance.
I think I have done well in trying to be creative with the things that we do as in
making up the scenes and actually putting them to the test.
My areas of improvement I would say would be meeting deadlines with getting
our sound and making props. I could say that I could have improved the timing.
I don’t think that I have worked at a level in which they would in the creative and
media industry because the standards are a lot higher and the employer in that
profession will be a lot stricter and tougher on meeting deadlines and other things
