I first became interested in applying to NYU when I fell in love with Charlie Kaufman’s films. After watching Synecdoche New York, I researched Kaufman in order to learn more about his career as well as his background. I first found out that he had attended NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, and I then discovered all the other incredible men and women who have walked through Tisch’s doors, to later mold film into what it is today. As one of the top film schools in the world, Tisch has the ability to help me achieve my full potential as a filmmaker, allowing me to enrich my creative perspective as I learn from the minds that taught masters like Martin Scorsese or Phillip Seymour Hoffman. I long to live in the environment that New York city embodies,
New York, Scribner, 2006, page 245. Like Jeannette Walls, my first glimpse of the city sent a rush of adrenaline through my body. The idea of living in New York City was nerve wracking since city life was so different compared to living in a sheltered town like White Rock. When I was 11, my family and I moved to the city due to my father receiving a job offer there as a professor. Several weeks passed before I got somewhat used to living there, and I occasionally hoped people didn’t judge me for being

I have always viewed movies as mood boosters. Whenever I watch a movie, I judge how good it is according to how well I understand the story. This is why I never truly understand how critics rate movies. However, upon reading John Berger’s “Ev’ry Time We Say Goodbye”, I start to understand how paying attention to the different components of a film helps in understanding the essence of a story. As Berger once said, “There is no film that does not partake of dream.
However, if you take the time to visit and absorb everything this city has to offer you will be surprised. The rhetorical appeals of ethos, pathos, and mythos are used to allow the person watching the video to get a glimpse of what Indianapolis truly has to offer. If you are sightseeing the War Memorial of Fallen Soldiers, visiting the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, or learning about nineteenth century history by visiting Conner Prairie will always leave you more knowledgeable than you already were. The happiness the video gives off makes the person watching the video want to experience all the wonders the city has to offer. Whether it is appealing to the family side of things, the sports fan that is waiting to come out, or the nighttime scene where you can eat with your family or go out and have a drink with friends you will never be disappointed.
The man from Manhattan wanted to express himself modernly, nothing like Latin. The audience took that well; they thought it was “swell”. They wish they could have done more than just clap, and the critics…they said, “Oh snap! It has rap!” That is his life in a
Manhattan in the Mirror of Slang/ New York City Life and Popular Speech New York City Life and Popular Speech The hundreds, even thousands, of words and phrases of slang and other popular speech about life in New York, especially Manhattan, are a treasure trove of social and cultural history. A distinctive word culture of social life in the city flowed from the modern cycle of urban growth that started significantly in the 1840s. These words about the city, individually and taken together, retell in a new voice the story of metropolitan life down to the 1950s, when so much national attention began to turn away from the culture of the old metropolitan core and towards the suburbs. Many of these word images of the city are still in
