This week’s movie is called The Others (2001) by Alejandro Amenábar. In this film, the audience oversees a desperate mother, Grace Stewart (Nicole Kidman) struggling with the living situation of being a mother whose has to deal a whole showcase of things. Some of these things include having a husband whose is not there, caring for her own children who are sensitive to sunlight, and living in a Victorian mansion where some people throughout the film have claimed that it is haunted. Grace at first doubts these haunted claims, but subsequent events began to occur which cause her to become very protective of her kids and at the same time crazy. All in all, this enigmatic and suspenseful movie ends with her and her children becoming ghost and that things that were haunting the house were of future being. Throughout this suspenseful movie, the use of sound has been used very liberally ranging to create an additional layer of suspense or of background. The Others (2001) by Alejandro Amenábar use the element of sound to bring out the character’s history and
Intro: The film Stand by Me is a coming of age story directed by Rob Reiner, it is based on Stephen King’s Novella The Body.

Check digits and codes are very important to the function and efficiency of a successful society. Whether it be the credit card codes or even looking at barcodes so an item is victoriously scanned. An important one that is used is the EAN Which stand for The European Article Numbering Code or even EAN-13 which is used for the identification of retail products. This contains both the 12 digit data of the product and the 1 check digit naming it a barcode of a numerical value of 13 .This was originally based off the old code of UPC-A (Universal Product Code), it then became the new standard of numbering codes.

Children in this group were provided with base-10 and unit blocks. Each base 10 block is 1 cm × 1 cm × 10 cm in size. Each unit block is 1 cm × 1 cm × 1 cm in size. The research assistant gave explicit demonstrations of how to use both base-10 block and unit blocks to construct two-digit number. First, the research assistant placed out ten unit-blocks in a line and then put a base-10 block along to the ten unit-blocks. They would tell the students that the two set of blocks were equal numbers of “10”. Next, the research assistant demonstrated the way of constructing number 35, saying: "Can you count how many tens in 35?" They then counted out three 10s and five 1s in such a way like "one ten, two tens, three tens......one, two, three, four,
In Shaun Tan’s Arrival, the pictures prompt me to give an underscore of sound to them. Adding sound can strengthen the artist vision for the audience. For the first section of pictures, I would start off underscoring a sound of a ticking clock. Then, I would fade in sound of a stirring pot. After that, I would send in the sounds of a whistling tea kettle. Next, the sound of a spoon stirring in tea mug. Additionally, I would add the tying of a package and tightening of a belt on a suitcase. Each sound would be slowly faded in based on the order of the items in the first section. This would eventually create a cacophony of sound, but it will also follow the story. Once the story progresses to the wife and husband, holding hands on the packed suitcase, I would put in complete silence.
He sees them coming and backs away until the cold metal bars, scrap against his back. He begins to scream. He notices his mother’s grip begin to weaken. He is grabbed and carried away. “He” is referring to Nim, a chimpanzee who has been just been taken from his mother, Carolyn. Nim was removed from his mother for a research project led by Professor Herbe Terrace. This project featured a radical experiment aimed to teach a chimpanzee sign language. Although, the documentary Project Nim (2011), directed by James Marsh, has an objective to present the progress and results of this experiment, it also carries a purpose to inform the viewer on a message regarding the components of and differences between communication and language. Marsh uses specific
Imagine sitting down to a multiple-course meal where the main dish is a strong fish, followed by a palate cleanser before a very sweet dessert. Now imagine a meal where the main course is savory, as well as the dessert. Both of these meals flow well, despite the first having contrasting flavors, while the second has complimentary flavors. Musical passages act in the same way—some flow into each other seamlessly, while others roughly transition from one piece to the next. Both can be effective in capturing the audience’s attention, and in drawing a myriad of emotions out of them.
How well did you organize your written analysis? What, is anything, could you do to make it easier to read?
I found it interesting that most of your photos take place at night. In my personal experience night photography and the use of flash are difficult to execute well but you’ve captured some satisfying bold colors and shots with your camera.
