Suspense is further created in the scene with the fishing line used to attract the shark to the boat, centred in the frame, as the audience wait in fear for the shark to emerge. When the audience gets a first look at the shark, it comes as a surprise. The shark is seen over Hooper’s shoulder. This shot selection takes the audience off guard, as they have been conditioned from previous events in the film to anticipate the shark’s arrival when the film employs underwater shots and John Williams’ two note score. Spielberg continues to create tension in the action sequences with the shark by suggesting its presence once more with the yellow compressed air barrel, and the prosthetic shark is only fully seen when it attacks Quint.
Sharks hunt in low lighting and murky waters, so if you cannot see the shark, how can you even see the warnings? Swimming in the wrong places can confuse the shark into thinking you are prey and you are more prone to be attacked. Another way to increase your chance of attack is if you go into the water and are bleeding in any way. Sharks have superior sense of smell and can smell a single drop of blood in one million drops of water. Excessive splashing may also confuse the shark into mistaking you as an animal in distress.
Introduction The Pacific viperfish or if you want to use its scientific name it would be Chauliodus macouni. It is a predatory fish that lives in the abyssal depths of the deep sea. It is a very ferocious creature of the deep. Humans don't have to worry about them because they can't get to us because they need to stay in the deep abyss to stay alive where the pressure is just right for them. There are 9 known species of viperfish known and the most common one is the sloanes viperfish but the one i'm gonna be talking about is the pacific viperfish but they all have pretty much the same characteristic.
As the sharks approaches the boat, Santiago prepares his harpoon, hoping to kill the shark before it tears apart the marlin. "The shark's head was out of water and his back was coming out and the old man could hear the noise of skin and flesh ripping on the big fish when he rammed the harpoon down onto the shark's head" (102). The dead shark slowly sinks into the deep ocean water leaving behind almost nothing of the marlin. After the voyage back to shore Santiago feels relief for the marlin may still be there but not
Great White sharks eat fish, and as they grow start to eat seals and walrus. Tiger sharks will eat anything and everything, such as dead animals, coal, tires, and clothes. Shark habitats are found in seas and oceans all over the world. Bull sharks have been seen swimming in lakes and rivers. Sharks prefer to live in warm waters near the coast.
There are large sharks lurking around their cage when all of the sudden it snapped and they fall to the ocean floor. Also, they are running out of air, since they are so deep they use a lot more, so they begin hallucinating and having problems with air supply and swimming. “As they fight their way back to the top, they shortly run out of oxygen.” (Bobb, 2017). Kate gets out of the cage and begins to swim around which is when the intense music starts and the shark chase that helps build the suspense. Kate swims up 7 meters to resume communication with the captain who tells her that someone will be coming down with a spare winch to pull them up.
This essay will examine the functions and effects of cinematography in Steven Spielberg’s Jaws Jaws follows the police chief Brody, along with scientist Hooper and shark hunter Quint, in their attempt to protect the town of Amity against a Great White shark that is terrorising beachgoers. It was adapted from Peter Benchley’s 1974 novel of the same name. Following its release in summer 1975, Jaws became the highest grossing film As Jaws was one of the first motion pictures to be shot partially on water, the production came across issues with the prosthetic shark, and as a result, Spielberg decided to only suggest the appearance of the shark as often as possible, as opposed to showing the prosthetic body during attacks. This sparing use of
In many zoos, animals are forced to live in prison-like cages for a large portion of their lives and are deprived of food. Harsh treatment like this can lead to aggressiveness and psychotic behavior. In the documentary “Blackfish”, which is a film that informs us about what really goes on behind the scenes of Seaworld, a killer whale named Tilikum had been deprived of food along with another whale. Tilikum was a new whale at the park and was training with an experienced whale, and when he would not perform the trick correctly the workers wouldn’t allow them to eat. This caused the other experienced whale to become frustrated with Tilikum and she would rake her teeth across his body, forming many scars.
The Reflection Paper on the “Sharkwater” The Sharkwater is a documentary created by Rob Stewart in 2006. The movie raises an important question about the survival of sharks, one of the most ancient creatures on the planet. It makes people look on these creatures from different point of view. I cannot say I treated sharks only like monstrous characters from films like Jaws or Sharknado before I saw this documentary. But it made to think more about the fate of these animals.
Because they eat sea nettles and jellyfish they are the most likely to mistake the plastic bag for food.” (Wagner 1). Therefore all animals are clearly affected by the plastic floating around in the ocean. Large animals such as whales take in huge mouthfuls of water while eating and can accidentally swallow a plastic bag. After the plastic bag is swallowed and the whale dies, that is not end of the bag’s murderous journey. Once the whale has decayed the bag is free to kill other marine life many more years to follow.
