THE NORMAN CONQUESTS - ROUND AND ROUND THE GARDEN

I JUST UPLOADED THE ENTIRE SECOND ACT OF ROUND AND ROUND THE GARDEN FROM THE NORMAN CONQUESTS

I played the role of Ruth in this production. The video quality is poor. It started out as a VHS video cassette, then I transferred it to a dvd, then I transferred it to iMovie which turns it into a Quick Time movie, then to Youtube where it lost a bit of quality. It
was slightly clearer in iMovie and Quick Time than Youtube. I posted Act 2, Scene 1, Part 2 March 17, 2009 - it is the second video on this post. And have been surprised with the number of views it has received. Even some have favorited it and a couple gave it five stars. That just made my day when I saw that this week. I have a total of 9 youtube videos posted of the second act. The videos are no clearer at Vimeo. And most of the videos are over the 500 MB limit for a Vimeo free account, which is what I have there. So if you are interested in viewing them, I suggest, using the black arrow (which turns red when the mouse is hovering over it) at the upper right of the video to see them in a different window. It is slightly an improvement. To have access to the red arrow, you need to go to youtube. Double click any embedded youtube here and you will be taken to the youtube page of that video.

If you have a youtube account, you may know that you can see what people are coming from to see your videos, what sites, links, embeds and what countries and states. New Jersey leads viewers in the USA.

The video was originally shot by an early VHS video camera, therefore the poor quality. I apologize.

Cast

Tom............John Chatty
Norman......Jim Ernest
Ruth...........Sandra K. Hammel
Reg............Paul Ruggeri
Annie.........Linda J. Vars
Featuring Patti Corriveau (Stage Manager)

Eventually, I plan to post the other two plays,
Table Manners, and Living Together

I notice I am fidgeting a lot in these videos . . . scratching although nothing needed to be scratched. And the voice needed to be lowered. But upstage it was hard to be heard because there was a dead spot back there. So,
there, I have a reason. Otherwise, the direction was barely there, so I pretty much directed myself. It would have been nice to be told to lower my voice, but I have to live with the high pitched voice....a bit annnoying.
