Film review on The King’s Speech, (Hooper, 2010).
The King’s Speech movie showed, the King George V character as a leader, impaired, struggling to speak fluently and get his words out when having a conversation or speaking during a speech. With awkward pauses, frequent stuttering and stammer. As the movie progresses, the King undertakes speech therapy lessons privately with intentions to improve his speech, (Hooper, 2010).
The importance of performance in any speech is essential. When you relate performing a speech as a King, someone with a significantly important role with great responsibilities. Delivering his speech to the people would be considered to be one of the most important jobs in that role.
There were a few techniques in the movie during the lessons between the Speech Therapist and the King. Including reading, pronunciation and projection exercises, articulating tongue twisters, vowel exercises, breathing exercises and listening to voice recordings.
Another interesting technique, the King had to listen to loud music with headphones, while reading a book out loud and being recorded. The out come of that was surprising, where the King’s voice recording was spoken fluently without any stutters, (Hooper, 2010).
Discuss some of the altering techniques of a voice. How does that impact?
Essentially getting the message out to the people with clear and concise articulation.
