Title of Drama:

Hostage

I haven’t made any posts for this unit so I thought I’d better make a start. For this project we are working on a soap opera that is based on a lecturer being taken hostage by a group of terrorists. This project has been split into six different sections/perspectives so that our class can get into small groups and create 6 short videos that each last about 10 minutes that when they’re put together it makes a narrative.

The six different sections of this soap opera are:

  • Documentary
  • lecturer
  • Police
  • TV News
  • Students
  • Terrorists

The group I’m in are going to be focusing on the terrorists. The plot has already been structured for us so all we really need to focus on is writing some dialogue for the scenes, filming and editing the footage. Our group also needs to discuss why the terrorists are actually doing the actions they are doing by taking the lecture hostage.
