Today was the final day of our ‘Storming the Castle: Robot Theatrics’ class. Over the last few weeks, we’ve learned how to create, test, debug, and polish all of our scripts. Now, the final day, is when we put it all to the test. When class first started, two of us had already finalized and submitted their presentations, and decided to help with the other groups’ presentations.
I was one of the two who finished my presentation early. The week prior, I came in during office hours to get a bit of work done (ended up staying 5 hours). During this time, we worked on finishing my presentation. We were also able to work on some of the basic movements for the other groups to use if they fell short on time.
I don’t actually know if any of the groups used the actions we made last week; I was mostly focusing on helping my partner work on his presentation. My presentation was simply a dialog with a random arms loop, but his- his was a whole marching band routine with dancing, music and instrumental (imaginary) performances. Needless to say, a lot of testing was needed for this.
Eventually class came to a close. Most groups, if not all, were either complete, or near-complete with their presentations. More likely than not, some people are going to drop by the office hours to do their presentation polish. The only thing now to do is wait and see how things go on Saturday.
