There is a different lighting for every setting.for example Benjamin Martin’s Malita has a base within a swamp and the lighting makes the scene feel dark and gloomy or when Benjamin’s oldest son, Gabriel, gets married the lighting is bright and cheery. The Patriot does a good job at making the lighting realistic and sets the mood for dramatic scenes. There is many realistically lighted scenes with light passing through trees and windows as you will see in this video.
I believe that the main theme of the movie is patriotism. Patriotism is defined as an act of support and devotion in one’s country("Patriotism"). Patriotism is shown in the movie when Gabriel disobeys his father and does what he believes is best for his soon-to-be country. Benjamin Martin knows he must win the battle against the redcoats in order for his family to live in a new and safe country he can only dream of. This video is about a letter Gabriel sent to his younger siblings at home while he is off fighting in the war.
In the patriot, the director, Roland Emmerich, used not-so-accurate historical events, slightly accurate historical elements, and great sound and lighting effects to make the viewer proud of what our nation

Back during the Revolutionary War, families were divided and many people were trying to decide one question. Should they join the side of the Patriots, Loyalists, or remain neutral? War can be a brutal, violent, and cruel way of achieving power or freedom; and in the process, many lives are lost. However, sometimes war is necessary as it helps get rid of tyranny and injustice. In the book My Brother Sam is Dead by James Lincoln Collier and Christopher Collier, a boy named Tim Meeker lives in a family where his father is a Loyalist, and his dear brother is a Patriot.

He starts the book at the beginning of the war and works toward the close of the Revolution. This layout allows for Royster’s main themes to develop as the war is reaching its peak points. As the book develops these key themes begin to intertwine and their significance becomes clear. The reader begins to understand how the American ideals are tied to their relationship with the Continental Army. One of Royster’s key arguments is that the revolutionaries’ loyalty to the war was based on the national character.

In the book, Flags of our Fathers, written by James Bradley, Bradley writes with pride about his father and the five other men who raised the American Flag on the Japanese island of Iwo Jima. Throughout the book, Bradley utilizes rhetorical questions, stories, interviews, and letters to create a more personal feeling to the book. Also, this builds ethos, making his book credible due to his sources. He creates a dramatic tone by employing short sentence structure and repetition throughout. Furthermore, Bradley also indicates strong feelings towards two major themes of the book, which are pride in his country and a contempt for the media during wartime.
The lighting in Donnie Darko movie is a key component of composition which creates our sense of illuminating for people and things. This movie uses two sources of lighting; natural light, such as daylight, when the scene is in an outdoor area for example, walking from school, at home, waiting at bus stop, or playing outside of the school on sunny days. Another source of light is artificial spotlight which is used in the movie indoors to cut and shape the light at the dining table, in the classroom or in the psychotherapist's house. Also, distinct shadows are used as an essentially smooth surface that reflects hard light in the Halloween party to feature deep shadows and scary areas in function of the plot. Three-points of lighting create ominous shadows in the horror genre for all the actors at Donnie and Elizabeth's Halloween party with lighting from below the cast to create monstrous objects in real life.
The Patriot is a movie filmed displaying the time of the American Revolution, it is a very historically inaccurate film that features few historical accuracies.

As the movie progresses many parts throughout the film do not align with proper historical accuracy.

In the text, Philbrick's selection of primary sources serve to develop his thesis into multiple authentic and surreal accounts of differing perspectives between loyalists and patriots. In his focus on primary sources, Philbrick knits together firsthand accounts from various Bostonian residents such as John Adams and John Andrews with events leading up to the war. For the most part, reading each journal and firsthand documentary is refreshing, but there are various points when Philbrick's reliance upon certain accounts prove to be unnecessary and exhaustive. He references to countless sources, and while most were significant, many appeared to have miniscule relevance to the main takeaway. For instances, Philbrick purposed John Andrew's narrative to aid readers in understanding the context of everything taking place in Boston during the 1700's, but most of the information referring to Andrew's personal accounts and the British's evacuation appears

The majority of people during the American Revolution fought for liberty without realizing the actual cost and brutal reality of war. In the novel My Brother Sam is Dead, the Meeker family consisting of a Father name Life, a Mother named Susannah, a rebellious teen named Sam, and a conflicted teen named Tim, journey through the life of colonists owning a tavern during the Revolutionary War. Sam departs from his family to fight alongside the Patriots going against his Father, a Tory. War brings a lot of terrible things, but some examples are families splitting, clash of generation, and an overall theme of principle vs reality. The soldiers who fought in the war thought they were fighting for liberty, when really they caused havoc and awfulness.
The colors and lighting are very unchanging much like the town Endora. The only exception is when there are strong emotions within the film. There is a warm glow of lighting by the sunlight or fire whenever there is a time of love, be it brotherly or in a romantic way. During the melancholy times of the story, the lighting is either dim when it relates to death, but when a character is feels lost in their emotions the director
Mr. Martin had a wife and five children and he published this book at the age of 70 in 1830. While I think that many of small details of this book was embellished for effect, like the tale of the sniper shot from a half a mile away with a non-accurate firearm, there is no doubt that Joseph Martin went through some very trying times; enduring starvation, disease, and poor living conditions to help make this country the beacon of freedom that it is today. He passed away at the age of 80 years old and this is the most graphic and vivid account first person account of a regular foot soldier in the American Revolution. So in conclusion, Joseph Plumb Martin was one of the young men that help shape this country during its infancy even if it was only a small part, he was first and foremost a volunteer soldier at a very young age and stuck it out though all of the hardships of war in the 18th century. The American Revolution was a war fought over taxation without representation, for this reason the thirteen original colonies went to war with Great Britain, and this time became known as “the times that try men’s
On November 26, 2016, I attended the Emerald City Theatre Company production of Charles M. Schulz play Charlie Brown Christmas. The production of the play was great for the children who were in attends of the play. The production took away the 4th wall. Which help the children of the audiences be a part of the play a couple of times. Still, it 's a good and time-efficient choice for family members who are used to the animated Charlie Brown and wanting it to be the same as the TV special.
