How well did we achieve the brief (above)? We achieved some of the briefings such as the drama having emotions and themes.

How well did we work together as a group – what were our challenges?
Our challenges were giving everyone a part.
How did we overcome our challenges?
The challenges were that I was worried that the technology may not work, such as the music stopping. I overcame this by slowing down what i was doing (but not so long it took ages!) and I was checking in with each group on when, where, and how to start their music.
How did I feel about our work, in the end?
I felt proud of myself for doing the technology for the whole production. I felt the 6 square group did a good job because they were able to discuss and sort our problems.
