The complex details that are lacking in the play are displayed freely in the short story "A Jury of Her Peers." Adversely, the story doesn't leave much for the reader to decide how to feel, it almost tells one how to feel because the detail is so engaging. That was just the point that Glaspell was trying to make though when she decided to turn the play into a story. It was the story, rather than her play, that drove her message home; the pursuit of justice for women in a man's

VII. Cinematic Device and Effects 1. Identify one example of each of the following shots and describe how the shot affected the presentation of the story told by the film: close-up, medium shot, long shot. -This is one example of close-up shot that is used in the film, the scene that the main character of the film is looking at herself at the mirror and think about what she gonna do to her life, it affects the presentation of the film because in close-up shot they only focus on one person or object that is important and the surroundings was blur. For medium shot there is a scene that the main character is practicing how to throw a knife, the medium shot affected the film in a way that we can see the whole scenario on the film but limited person
Throughout the episode, there are various instances when words don’t accomplish what people want. When the witch is in the Gaia group she tries to persuade them to do more witch related things, but none of the others want to except one who wants to and doesn’t speak up. The other major instance is when Buffy wants to kiss a guy she likes, but she and him keeping talking too much when they are about to. When they can’t speak, their words don’t get in the way and they kiss. In this way, Whedon is saying he doesn’t need dialogue and neither does the audience when it comes to understanding something or
Tim Burton shows so many moods and tones in his movies through his cinematic emulation. Some of his movies, such as “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” Burton shows the effect of a more realistic movie where Charlie wanted to sell the ticket for money and not experience a once in a lifetime experience. However, in “Edward Scissorhands”, he conveys a gothic style and tone through the outsider figure. Tim uses the techniques of lighting, sound, and editing to convey the effects of a more gothic and ominous style. First of all, sound is an important concept in any movie.
In the movie of Tim Burton, he uses many different kinds of cinematic techniques, which are shots and framing, camera angles, camera movements, lighting, editing techniques, and sound. In order to set up the mood and tone in the story, he uses those cinematic techniques in the movie. Tim Burton style are more of a dark and delightful childhood experience and that he embraces the dark elements. The movie that Tim’s famous for, have those styles and elements in it.

When comparing a short story to the film that was inspired by it, it is important to be able to draw comparisons to be able to evaluate the story. In the short story, “The Junky’s Christmas” and the inspired film, The Junky’s Christmas, many things are kept similar such as the story being narrated the exact same from the original short story. One scene stands out when drawing comparisons. It shows the audience the main character’s facial expressions and multiple different shots of the scenery in which the story takes place to put the audience within the story. Danny, the protagonist, needs to find a way to get drugs and this alone can hint at the whole plot of the story.
The film Pervert’s Guide to Cinema is a great source for major concepts in cinema like illusions, reality, conflicts, observations, desire, etc. It is really interesting how Zizek explains some of these concepts and how he shoots in the same locations as the examples he uses to portray his concepts. One of the most interesting topics is appearances versus reality. In the movie, Vertigo Zizek talks about how appearances won over reality. Another extraordinary concept is the use of birds in the movie The Birds and how their attack resembles tearing up and distorting reality.
Throughout the movie “Awakenings” we have noticed the use of lighting changing in each scene competently to create a certain mood or to help the viewer to foreshadow. All through the film, we have met the two main characters Dr. Sayers and Leonard Lowe, who have a considerable impact on the story. A) In the opening scene where Leonard was a young boy playing with his friends. The use of lighting is used to create a cloudy, dim and a dull feeling that has supported the story move forward by creating a base of gloominess that allows the remaining of the story to become lighter. During that scene appeared the Brooklyn bridge that arched aboves Leonard supposedly represents a rainbow.
The grandma is almost set up as the narrator for the first part of the movie so that the audience can understand (or get an idea of the movie) the plot of the film. This also connects the opening credits to transition through scenes and carry on with the
The writing techniques of Flannery O’ Connor and Raymond Craver are completely different from one other, for example, O’Connor is known for how she beautifully uses dialogue, and actions to characterize her characters, she never withholds information from the readers. On the other side we have Craver, who is known for his minimalist approach basically less is more for the readers. Craver stories uses little dialogue; dialogue is only used to discuss mundane things. To suddenly have O’Connor rewrite one Craver’s story is like having hot sauce and trying to make it sweet, which not feasible but interesting to watch because we would really like to know how it would be executed. If we were to take Craver’s story “Neighbors” and magically have
“Hawke stands awkwardly in the centre of a wide shot contemplating whether to go forward toward the section with familiar film genre or go back toward the uncharted territories of action-packed movies.” (Khoury, 124). In the Almereyda film, Hamlet’s movements through the action movie aisles creates a near dream sequence. Like in the rental store, Hamlet would become surrounded by action movies if he were to switch his focus to the genre. Almereyda uses the color of Hamlet’s clothes during the soliloquy to symbolize Hamlet’s struggle as Doran does, but instead in the fashion of
They argue that Cece doesn’t tell them all her secrets like el Deafo or how she can use the microphone to hear where her teacher is in the building. Friends don’t like it when other friends keep secrets from them. The argument that i support is that Cece is able to build relationships and her partial defense doesn’t interfere. They said that Cece couldn’t hear them, but i say that she could hear them just fine but she couldn’t understand them. Cece made relationships with the others because she’s made friendships already with kids from her neighborhood that are there for her.
