The bare stage provides a dramatic and dreamlike scene. The costumes provide additional humor to an already hilarious play. Bella’s costumes help show the development of her character throughout the show. They all have a large padding on the behind to show her large backside. The most interesting costumes, however, are worn by the freaks in the circus.
In the novel, Montag simply allows the technology he uses to take control of him. “...he let the escalator waft him into the still night air” (Bradbury 4). Montag’s dependence on technology is highlighted by the fact that he resigns himself to the escalator. Another example of familiar technology is the door-voice Montag and Mildred always utilize (Bradbury 72). The door-voice lets them know when someone comes to their house, before the visitor even reaches the door.
Keaton often relies on this dream device, which would seem an easy way out if it were not so linked with the comedian’s foundation in realism. Though he tricks big Joe Roberts (his Arbuckle-like foil) and whole police forces, he rarely fools the viewers, at least not without quickly letting them in on it. In the beginning of “The Balloonatic”, it’s unclear if Buster is in a haunted house or a fantasy of Hell, before he is ejected swiftly onto the street, and we see that he was merely in an amusement park ride called “House of Trouble”. Him being a human prop is also showed off in “The General” as Keaton is throw around the train during the
I saw the dusk, night sky and gold glowing lights at the border of the roller coaster. It was a magical night, exceptional, remarkable, and extraordinary! After we got off the roller coaster, I was begging to go back on. We all wanted to, but it was already late and the park was closing. The exuberance I felt was indescribable.
One way to do that is to develop a quicker way to get stuck people down from the roller coaster and into safety. The next way to make the roller coaster run smoother is to have regular cleaning on the roller coasters to remove rust and any other things that could be on the roller coasters track. “A roller coaster at Alton Towers has been closed after plastic wheels came loose and hit riders”. Accidents like this are very common in roller coasters, even though they could easily be solved by having regular checks on the roller coaster’s wheels to make sure they are functioning properly. Making these changes to make the roller coasters run smoother is very important to make roller coaster safer for
The pairing of several melodic phrases throughout the composition adds to the sense of chaos and turbulence. The dramatic contrast of dynamics between themes, pitch, chromatic harmonies and discords used in Night on Bald Mountain are still used in musical scores for horror movies. I remember hearing this music in Disney’s Fantasia and thinking, “Boy, do I need to run.” It still has that same effect. In the movie, Chernabog, the evil god, appears in the final segment of the film and summons spirits around the mountain. There’s not another score of music that could perfectly illustrate the final scene of Disney’s Fantasia than Night of Bald Mountain.
For example, the dinosaur fighting scene, they seriously could have dropped the ball on this part, like moving between cameras way too fast, which I believe happened in the present 2005 King Kong film. Another scene would be, the fight at the top of the Empire State building. This battle is a immensely wide look at New York city, something I would find extremely difficult to do in the 1930s. They do a truly pleasurable job keeping it steady with only a few camera angles rather than trying to capture all of the action and every single detail. The narration of the film that this movie used was a mixed type of narration.
For instance, the video shows Beowulf climbing a cliff with his bare hands, but he is impeded “by a waist-high boulder the next” (Aldred 390). Technically, Aldred is correct in this digitally limited version of the Beowulf video game, which reveals major problems in the “seamless” connection hat the game player experiences when attempting to become an avataristic extension of the film. However, I would have liked Aldred to further discuss the premise of Beowulf as a moral/ethical avatar for game players, which also defines the limitations of video game “interaction.” In my opinion, not only does the video game drastically misrepresent the film, but it also rejects the entire meaning of Beowulf’s psychological and spiritual journey as a heroic figure. In the video game, Beowulf has been merely reduced to being an avatar for violent combat scenarios. Aldred should have also covered the digital limitations of the video game as a philosophical problem of Beowulf’s misrepresentation, which depict the moral and ethical construct of violent/combat-based gaming scenarios that presents, yet another, major disconnect between the film and the video
Upstage is back, downstage is front, right is left, left is right, out is up, break a leg but don't really, wings have nothing to do with birds, the catwalk doesn’t involve cats, and when the stage manager says move it means move. The theatre vocabulary is very confusing for the outside world, but for me it is my second language. More specifically, I have developed a passion for the technical elements of theatre over the years. The joy of being the “people in black” that can make amazing sets and produce incredible plays which goes unnoticed.. Although this discourse is much small yet complex it has helped me find out who I am but also in my academic skills through learning how to work in teams, solve problems independently but also how to be
Every time we suggested this ride, you pushed it back and said, ‘We should save it for last.’ And now it’s ‘last,’ and you’re going on.” I nod my head, acknowledging my suspension. I study the rollercoaster; it blasts forward, bends to the sky, shoots backward, repeats, then stops so the passengers are facing perpendicular to the ground. During this pause, my heart stops; I can’t and don’t want imagine how it feels to trust your whole life to a safety belt and some plastic. Suddenly, screams fill my ears; the ride had started again. Just as soon as it began, it ended.
