Here are some links and whatnot to help you research for your TAS. Keep in mind that these links may not be the best source of information, so look around and don’t rely on this. Also, while you’re welcome to glance at the links for other TAS, don’t get so distracted that you neglect the ones you’re working on.
Telling Jokes Lots of ads in this one, but look! It’s by Brandon!
How to Cry I just Googled “How to Cry” and this came up! Hahaha!
Stage Combat TAS:
Combat videos (I was not able to view these beforehand for content.)
You’re on your own; this one’s easy to look up. I have a list of improv games if you want to look at it.
History of Drama TAS:
This one is also easy to look up. Here’s one interesting link, though:
Basic Music Theory and Next Level Music Theory:
History of Music:
Ballroom Dance/Swing Dance:
I have several videos that teach the basics of ballroom and swing. You can also find lots of videos and DVDs that teach these. I’m fond of the Dance With Len Goodman (head judge on Dancing With the Stars) DVD, available in the Washington County system.
History of Swing
You can also find DVDs of jazz, hip hop, etc at your library or clips on YouTube.
History of Dance
Be careful when looking up “dance fads” online; there are some inappropriate topics in those articles. I have Panatti’s Parade of Fads, Follies, and Manias, a book that covers these dance fads. There is also a video in the Washington County system called Dance Time – The 20th Century, which is pretty good.
Just Google “How to write a song” or “how to write a poem”. Lots of stuff will come up.
Costuming and Costume Design/Assembly
I also have several books on historical and ethnic costumes.
Makeup and Hair
I have a book on making theatre sets.
