File form is the ways that the filmmakers use to show the story scenes and express the concepts that they want to tell. Filmmakers make use of various shots and filming angles to present different film content. For example, when a particular scene’s action has broken down into many shots, the filmmaker can utilize this fragmentation to precisely control what audience see, when they see it, how they see it, how long they see it, and in what order they see it. The film form directly influence the perspectives and points of view of the audiences since the audiences have to follow filmmakers’ shots and angles to watch the movies and understand the stories. And that’s why film form can shape an audience’s experience.
Divided We Fall: Americans in the Aftermath When it came to completing my fourth video there were only a selective few to choose out of. I decided to review and analyze the movie “Divided We Fall: Americans in the Aftermath.” Before reviewing this documentary, I read the blurb and immediately became attached. I felt this movie will prove how some “Americans” really feel. Divided We Fall deftly explores race, religion, and what it means to be American in times of national crisis. This movie was about a local girl for Clovis, CA in the Fresno area.
Richard uses pathos when he writes, “ I know longer felt that the world about me was hostile, killing; I knew it” (251). When he says, “I knew it” he creates a powerful sense of glory that generates emotion. Another example of pathos is when his friend yells at him, “Dick, look, you’re black, black, black, see? Can’t you understand that?" (183).
FINDINGS RHETORICAL ANALYSIS Filmmaking happens every time someone wishes to film something with a camera whether it is a home video for ‘You got framed’ or release big budget blockbuster for Steven Spielberg. Either way filmmaking is all about organising scenery where in which the camera will identify the object as a sequence or a scene. What we see on screen as an audience is controlled by the one holding the camera; this means the audience is viewing the footage from another person’s perspective of the image. This is also the case of editing where the editor can chose to keep or discard footage for the benefit of the audience viewing experience. The edited piece is often used to create certain effects and motions that are impossible to
Journal 03: America Tony Hoagland’s poem “America” uses specific nouns and metaphors to tell readers that America is too obsessed with material objects and self-satisfaction. Hoagland uses these nouns and metaphors to hide truth from the naked eye, specific diction is also used in combination with these metaphors to expose corruption in American society. In the opening lines, Hoagland writes, “Then one of the students with blue hair and a tongue stud / Says that America is for him a maximum-security prison / Whose walls are made of Radio Shacks, Burger Kings, and MTV episodes.” Hoagland almost lists the details of American trends by mentioning hair color and piercings, and by describing businesses like Radio Shack which sell 70-inch flat screen televisions, which are completely unnecessary, and fast food restaurants like McDonald’s that give super-sized food portions. These allow readers to immediately see the ridiculous
Charles Yale Harrison’s novel Generals Die in Bed strips away the misconception that war and is glorious and in doing so strongly conveys to the reader the horrible reality that was the First World War Harrison emphasises the harshness of this reality through the constant bombardment of gruesome and desensitising events experienced by the Narrator. The dramatic degree of different between the fictional views held by the public and the truth is highlighted by the contrast of the soldier’s experiences and society’s false impressions. Furthermore the novel shows war for what it truly is, a dominant force with the power to consume, transform and scar all that stands in it’s way. Through GDIB the reader is given a raw and truthful depiction of the
Also, while watching the film the viewer has the choice to pause, forward, or rewind and forward the film. This makes viewing more flexible than watching Macbeth being performed live. This enhances understanding as you could rewind to parts you didn’t understand. The camera is particularly good, as you can see the characters facial expressions. So when Lady Macbeth is saying “…unsex me here and fill me from the frown to the toe topfull” you can see her expression.
What attracted me to this book was the way the author expressed each occurrence in his rediscovery of America in a comical way. Especially when Mr. Bryson starts comparing differences between America and its citizens, and England and its citizens, in a way it was never done before. He manages to describe some incidents in detail, and also hits out at America’s way of life. He points out
When watching a movie you can see and hear the details, where as when reading a book you are able to imagine them, and create the pictures in your head. 3.) While writing a book the author only has to imagine it and write it down, but when making a movie the director, producer, and screenplay writer gave to work together to create the scenes, make the special effects, and of course find the perfect actors/ actresses for each major and minor roles. 4.) There is also a considerably more amount of money involved in making a movie.
The American Scholar Summary There are some ideas that are universal, no matter how long ago they were first put into words. When these ideas are expressed using persuasive techniques and strategies, become truly timeless. Emerson’s oration, The American Scholar, exemplifies this.

He uses atone appropriate to his audience, employs the use of any number of persuasive techniques, and divides his main argument into three concise and well-explained sections.
