Welles utilized sound to make the audience feel the mood of the scenes, the soul of the characters, and the meaning of the film. During happy times in Kane’s memory, the music and sounds were of quick and light as in business implying a mood of success and forward motion in life. The sounds used in the movie assisted viewers in many ways; 1) guided attention to certain parts of the scene, 2) helped define the dimensions of where the characters were positioned in the scene, 3) conveyed the mood of the scene and the character’s states of minds, 4) helped to represent time, 5) created rhythm not provided by music, 6) revealed the main characters aspects, 7) aroused expectations about what was going to happen in the scene, and 8) enhanced the overall dramatic effect of the sequence of the movie. These are just a few of the benefits that the newly introduced sounds in the movie Citizen Kane provided. This film was truly ahead of its time and Orson Welles was well aware of that.
Although there are silent films, sound adds a whole different aspect. Non Diegetic sounds create emotion through what type of music is playing. Deep toned sounds create a bad vibe for villains or bad guys while light, upbeat sounds create good vibes and joy for heroes or good guys. For example, in the movie “Edward Scissorhands,” Director Burton uses Non Diegetic sound in the scene where
It is much more effective for the students to have their own perception of the characters and scenes first, then they can watch the story come to life. The audience will already have knowledge on the message and a personal insight on Jeannette Walls’ emotions. Watching the movie first will already put a visual in their minds, which will not let them create their own private image. Reading is an intimate experience, all readers perceive a picture differently. Although no movie based on a book is fully satisfactory, it is always amusing to watch the storyline in a different light.
The “Shawshank Redemption” has been given over forty nominations and awards. This has been seen as one of the best movies ever created because of its ability to get the audience to fall in love with the characters, even if they are prisoners we all feel sorry for them. In conclusion, King has won so many awards due to his ability to catch the readers and viewers attention and make them fall in love with a
The movie gained Strait even more publicity and fans (Carlin, 2006). Winning himself twenty-two CMAs and twenty AMCs, Strait was an outstanding artist. In 2008, he also got the Artist of the Decade. The George Strait Country Music Festival was a very unusual thing for a country artist, but of course it would be George Strait who broke boundaries. He also made an album called Strait Out of the Box.
Howard Shore’s use of leitmotifs in his movie score composition in the Lord of the Rings provides for a foundational basis of emotion and character narrative. His complex integration of leitmotifs in the trilogy is considered to be among the most extensive in terms of the sheer number of motifs and themes accounted for, as well as it’s multifaceted composition. Many composers of movie scores will often fall into the pattern of minimizing the usage of leitmotifs and instead score based on momental romanticization. Shore does not fall into this category. The intentionality and strategy placed in each score and harmony is a direct emotional reflection of character development and plot progression.
His record went to 178 stories which made him the author he ended up being. Most of these were published on magazines, which helped him to finance them. But as much as he tried any novel he wrote could match or reach the greatness of "The Great Gatsby". They are many honorable mentions ( "The Last Tycoon" or "Tender is the Night") but none of these could work it out for him, on the purpose of overcoming his big treasure of novel. Up to the date there have been many master pieces to honor his work like the movie of "The Great Gatsby" starring Leonardo Di Caprio, who made a good work playing the
In conclusion, hands down, Elvis Presley was the most influential person in American society. He had a large impact on the gap between teenagers and their parents. He defined rock music which we still hear all the time in society today. And, without him and his music some people might have put up even more of a fight when the integration laws were
This was extremely intriguing for my adolescent mind to think about and comprehend how the music playing in the background, barely even noticing that it there, can change how you feel about the act. I wanted to be a Film Score producer for great action movies like Pirates of the Caribbean, Mission Impossible, Star Wars, and Jaws. For hours upon hours on end, I sat and listened to film scores from some of the most influential movies I’ve heard about, but never actually seen, trying to determine what the scene might be about based on the music being played. I didn’t realize how hard it was to actually determine whether or not the scene was happy or sad other than being based on the major and minor chords. By now I’m approximately the age of fourteen or fifteen and I have begun exploring my ideas of how to pursue careers in being a film score composer.
As music continues to grow and change, an increasing number of genres of music are discovered and gain popularity. Despite the different types of music being discovered today, the genres, Pop, R&B/Hip-Hop, and Country have consistently been popular since their discovery. Critics of these types of music argue that the songs do not reflect the “facts of life,” meaning that songs on the top charts for these genres do not have meaning or authenticity. Although there are several critics that disagree, there are songs from each genre that do reflect the “facts of life.” Even though Pop music is the most common type of music the public listens to due to radio airplay and promotion, an overwhelming majority of both critics and listeners claim the Pop music is simply music without meaning.
After reading through this lesson I have realized the impact music has on reinforcing stereotypes about schools and teachers to students. In the song Don't Stand So Close To Me by The Police, female teachers are referred to in a sexual context. The Police express their view of female teachers as “Young teacher, the subject of schoolgirl fantasy”, these lyrics indicate that female teachers are not respected for their profession, instead as a sexual fantasy for the artists. School Days by Chuck Berry also reinforces the stereotype of school being boring.
The importance of music is unspoken because everyone has their own reason to appreciate it. “Have some composure and where is your posture?” This song excerpt is very relatable to any kid because it is basically saying that you’re supposed to be composed and perfect, but you’re actually not. In this particular song, the meaning behind this lyric is that a woman was having a wedding and she’s supposed to be perfect and composed, but instead she shoots her friend.
Even though John Smith, Pocahontas, and Anne Hutchinson all died before turning 54 years old, they made many accomplishments. John Smith was a young warrior, a original Jamestown settler, and made a map of Virginia (Kelly, Melissa "Biography of John Smith"). Pocahontas was a Native American princess who saved John Smith's life and brought peace between Native Americans and colonists in Virginia (Kelly Melissa "Biography of Pocahontas). Anne Hutchison hosted meetings for women, criticized a church in Massachusetts, and got her and herself kicked out of Massachusetts (Kelly Martin). John Smith, Pocahontas, and Anne Hutchinson are key people of colonial time, because of their important contributions to their community.
After Malcom is attacked by the tyrannosaur he is put on a high dose of morphine that makes him talk even more. But even in his drugged state he makes some valid philosophical statements. One thing that he says is, “Scientists are actually preoccupied with accomplishment. So they are focused on whether they can do something. They never stop to ask if they should do something.”
