Goon Squad Music Video Reflection
For my groups music video we were assigned chapter five and chose the song "Chances" by five for fighting. I played the character Lou, who the reader was able to see through many different lenses throughout the book. At first he is shown through a negative perspective. We learn that he would prowl on high school girls and was not at all a descent human being. But in chapter five Lou is dying and we get to see him interact with the some of the people he had taken advantage of. He is shown as more regretful as he reflects on his past sins. He has more of a conscience, that becomes more developed when he is remorseful on his deathbed. If I had to grade myself I would say a 75% on my performance. I did a good job of looking creepy, but I am no actor and my embarrassment effected my "performance"(if you could even call it that). But it was an interesting experience that allowed me and my group members to work more closely with the book and better analyze it.
