參加《英該點講》演出的體會

為什麼我會參加《英該點講》演出?有什麼體會?

首先,英語語音學是我其中一個專業範圍,在中大MA ELT 課程曾經任教的一科正是Phonetics and Phonology for English Language Teachers ,故此語常會邀請我拍攝時,而我又覺得會是有趣的經驗,於是便一口答應了。

拍攝這系列,和兩年多前拍「鏗鏘集」,是很不同的經驗;拍「鏗鏘集」,沒有劇本,不需演戲,做回自己便可以了。但參加拍攝《英該點講》,才知道原來拍劇是那麼「大陣象」。大家在ViuTV 看見每集三分鐘好像很簡單,但原來背後的crew是二十人以上 ;每集拍了半天至大半天,還未計前期準備和後期製作。

至於個人的體會有:
(1) 生平第一次有女士和我化妝。
(2) 生平第一次有女士和我打點服裝。
(3) Roll 機時不算緊張,可能已習慣不同場合的presentation。
(4) 導演希望我們說話自然,所以不用tele-prompter 。 16 more words
