The bright colours and matching of costumes to those seen in Bryan’s novel also make it good for analysing the Mise en Scene used in my chosen sequence. Comic/graphic novel iconography can be seen, in the opening of the sequence characters Kim, Scott, and Stephen are shown playing their instruments in a comic strip, each of them in individual panels. This is useful as it shows a close up of each of their reactions, providing the audience with insight into how the characters are feeling when Evil Ex #1 blasts through the wall. Here is a cut to Evil Ex #1 (Matthew Patel) flying through the air saying “Mr Pilgrim!” The speed he is travelling exaggerated by the use of ‘speed lines’. The ‘speed lines’ will have been created using special and visual effects such as CGI (elements of mise en scene).
Ralph, unlike Simon, has not figured out that he is fighting not only Jack, but the evil inside all mankind. Simon had figured that out when he had his "conversation" with the pig's head. The head told Simon "I'm part of you." Since Simon's conversation was part of an epileptic hallucination, the realization that the evil is inside of man must have come from Simon himself. Unfortunately Ralph, has been so focused on trying to lead the boys, thinking they would follow him simply because he was chief.
Dialogue: Mark Twain utilized clever and witty dialogue often in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. From Tom Sawyer's plans to cause trouble to Huck tricking Jim, the dialogue often serves a comedic purpose.

Mark Twain's masterful utilization of dialogue helped establish the novel as a classic. Stream of Consciousness: One of the most commonly used literary element in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is the stream of consciousness.
The man could be of multiple ethnicities: by eliminating and universalizing race allows the man to be more relatable. As the essay continues Junod provides more specific traits to describe the man. Details such as "wide face… dark brows… thick dark lips" (76) are applied to a more restricted group of people, thus, narrowing the potential candidates for the falling man. By doing so Junod allows the reader to give a face to the man who was lost; he becomes an actual person rather than just a man. Even more so Junod continues, giving the man a personality using physical characteristics.
In these court hearings, some very embarrassing and damaging things had been exposed about Zuckerberg. Simply, the humble and nerdy computer programmer had not been so innocent and forthcoming as the reader was initially led to believe. Some AIM passages were quoted in the article, showing the reader a very compelling argument against the supposedly good character of Mark Zuckerberg. The author is unsympathetic towards Zuckerberg when he comments about the new Facebook movie that was soon to be released at the time. Vargas writes, “The movie is a scathing portrait, and the image of an unsmiling, insecure, and sexed-up young man will be hard to overcome.” This unrelenting image painted of Zuckerberg is not what he chose yet was forced upon him anyway, unlike every minutely controlled detail of a Facebook profile.

Simon became inarticulate in his efforts to express mankind's essential illness." (Golding 89) Eventually, Jack prevails as the leader of an anarchic type society where rules and laws are not required except where the leader irrationally directs. The symbol of authority, the conch, is fittingly destroyed at this point in the novel and Ralph discovers what Simon was trying to say. The beast did not exist in the beginning but was created by the boys in their acts of savagery and
In The Great Gatsby, the theme about dreams was portrayed vividly through the character Jay Gatsby. Gatsby's character has an unrealistic view of dreams and is foolish enough to let those dreams take control of every aspect of his life. The narrator, Nick Carraway, describes this obsession, saying that "it is what preyed on Gatsby, what foul dust floated in the wake of his dreams that temporarily closed my interest in the abortive sorrows and short-winded elations of men" (2). While Nick does admit that he had a heightened admiration for Gatsby, the childish choices that he made repels Nick and makes him disrespect Gatsby.

McCloud also introduces the concept of closure, or the means by which comics readers interpret the events that invisibly occur within the gutter, or space between individual panels in a comic. McCloud is actually so passionate about the subject that he essentially dedicates an entire chapter to this topic. Ample examples of each transition type, panel shape, and line style show the reader how each feature potentially adds a different element to the images portrayed. The six steps involved in creating any art form are examined in detail. Although McCloud insists that all artists will follow some variation of this formula, he also makes the argument that only creators choosing to focus on ideas and concepts over form will actually elevate the medium to a higher level.
