Photobooth Monologue Exercise

Using the program "Photobooth", create 3 pictures of yourself in different moods (with different effects to symbolize each mood). You may wish to use the locations from the effects menu. If you need a new setting, use Google IMAGES, pick a place like Paris or London or Rome or Streetcorner or Farm, etc. and quickly choose a picture background by dragging the picture to your desktop, then dragging it onto the "drag background here" spaces.

Then, write a monologue in which you fictionalize yourself. Allow your character to move through the feelings, or express the three moods you created. You have 20 minutes for this exercise.
