We were on the local news channel because we walked in, and started filming our own show about sports players. We were talking about Lebron James, James Harden, and John Wall. The next thing we talked about was the weather, and we were just making things up we looked like we were the dumbest people on Earth. The people at the Station told us that we went to a basketball game after we left. It was a Warriors game, and we got to meet Stephen Curry.
Maurice tripped over uneven ground and Jonathan kept running not noticing. Maurice got captured by the pirates and taken prisoner. Jonathan looked behind him to see that he was all alone. The pirates head back to the ship carrying Maurice back to the ship against his will as a prisoner. Jonathan tried to hide away for the rest of the storm.
Watching the movie Casablanca in class you realize the difference between the film of the movie, how most films are directed and produced today. The movie is one of the top classic black and white films in American history. The elements of design in Casablanca, the setting is realistic during the time of 1942 and World War II. The setting shows the emotion of the people in the film during this time, with the stress of getting off the island and to America where it was safe. The people there were doing anything they could to get away since Hitler was taking over, and they knew bad was coming from it.
He asks Rick to hold them for the night at the club. Then all of sudden the local police barge in controlled by Captain Louis Renault. Ugarte is taken
Of the films that I have seen of John Huston and Martin Scorsese it’s hard not to notice their similarities and numerous differences. Perhaps the most obvious comparison to make is how they use decor and costumes, both of their films, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948) and Taxi Driver (1976), take place at the time of their release, so the costumes and settings are realistic and most importantly lived-in. How these locations are lived in are portrayed a little differently through lighting and camera work, as Travis Bickle’s apartment is dark and grungy looking throughout the film, Scorsese is a filmmaker that likes to portray these kind of locations and characters that would inhabit them. Scorsese’s film feels less like a studio film and
The boat trip was tolling on us, but we prevailed through all of the hardships. A good portion of the rest of the other passengers made it, yet some kind of disease has claimed the lives of some of the people here. We are all terrified, but thrilled in a big bundle of emotions, this will be the most exciting moments of my life passing through Ellis island. Mother was just going up to the top deck to get some fresh air, then she came tearing through halls yelling “I see America!” After that a huge mass of passengers ran up to the top deck, They were greeted by the statue of liberty welcoming them in with open hands.
One of those were the calmness of the CIA operative Tony Mendez, the man who invented and completed the elaborate plan of their escape. In the film he is always calm and ready for every situation, but in reality he broke into cold sweats and almost blew his cover a few times. The movie also didn’t seem to capture the “realness” of studio 6, the fake film studio created to produce Argo. After their ad came out, with two big name makeup artists turned producers. it drew a lot of attention toward them.
Some of my favorites, was the amazing cast, which is truly the turning point of every movie; without an amazing cast it is very hard to have an amazing film. Something I found very helpful was everytime the setting was changed, there would be a little note at the bottom of the screen with the city, country, and year all in yellow writing. Another favorite scene of mine was when Bill Murray and Bob Balaban were invited to stay at the cousin of a friend’s house, who was secretly a member of the S.S.. His name was Sthal and he stole artwork for Hitler’s museum in Germany. They discovered this by noticing all of the artwork in the room, how it still had original signatures and evidence from the museums they belong to.
In the process of entering, there stood an employe who told us we weren’t allowed to take pictures. Understandably, we nodded and took our seats. Surprisingly, we hadn’t realized that the show had started until we saw people with face and body paint swinging around the room. There were so many of them, I kept turning my head around, but couldn’t keep track of them all. Following that, there were people on the stage acting while the stage was flipping.
He has done a remarkable job in lifting a straightforward character and bringing it to the intensity it attains as the movie rolls. The story after going through the introductory phase of every character takes a vivid turn. In fact If I hadn’t watch the trailer or heard about the movie I don’t think I would have guessed such a twist considering the introduction of Lucas. Klara after confessing to her teacher in a rather unclear almost confused sort of way that she has seen the ’nether regions’ of Lucas is where the movie kick starts with a new vibe and begins to justify its genre and from here on as an audience one can slowly feel the story gripping his or her attention . After this event of confession by Klara Lucas’s life starts to change slowly maintaining the already set tempo of the movie.
The general idea of the only man on earth pinned against a diseased population was still evident through all the hollywood extras. All in all, I would recommend both book and movie to anyone who
When he saw the motorcade approaching he stuck the percussion cap against a lamp post near him and let the explosive fly. It sailed through the air in a graceful arc but the diver accelerated just in time and it hit the back of the car exploding on the road and injuring some officers in the car behind. He drank the cyanide and jumped into the river Miljacka but the cyanide was old and it didn 't work; he was dragged out of the river and arrested. Boom!
The final montage from ‘Rigor Mortis’ showcases the skilled use of framing, music, lighting, and camera angles by director Juno Mak. Mak has a distinct style of filming, and the montage showcases all of his little details and quirks. In the scene, Mak shows how the story would have progressed without any supernatural interference on Chin, the protagonist; there would have been no damaged and dingy building, the family of Yang and Pak are happy, and Meiyi has successfully coped with the passing of Tung. To emphasise these points, all of the mise-en-scene is completely changed from earlier parts of the story.
The cinematography in Casablanca overall directs the audience’s attention while skillfully revealing not only the characters’ emotions, but the audience’s as well. The element of close-ups in this film’s cinematography is something that stood out to me from the very beginning. Throughout the entire film the use of close-ups directed the audience’s attention to the speaker as it would take a major distraction to unglue the audience’s eyes from the character’s that are being emphasized. The audience gets drawn in to the subject of the close-up and the background fizzles away to unveil intense emotions and a restless tone that have been created by the cinematography. For instance, when Rick notices Ilsa in his saloon the camera closes in on the characters as the camera goes back and forth to each of there faces to create a tense feeling without the audience knowing of their history.
In David Gerrold’s “Star Truck” the author gives examples and arguments to how the writers and creators of Firefly uniquely built the world for this science fiction/western hybrid through subtext, unique philosophical questions, and relatable uses of modern-looking technology. I believe that the author has provided numerous quality examples to demonstrate his opinion on this subject and has done an excellent job and persuading the reader. Gerrold’s writing provides examples from the show Firefly to show how the writers used subtext in lieu of monologues, or other means, to help build their characters. He also argues that a show asking philosophical questions such as “what does it mean to be a human being?” helps to create an intrigue for the audience as other shows, even within that same genre, don’t take the same approach to asking those types of questions, if they’re even asked at all (190).
