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.
Under the tsar the Okrana was used defeat any political opposition, although Lenin used them the same way the name of the ‘Okrana’ was changed to the ‘Checka’ and their primary role was to imprison political opponent and send them to Labour Camps in the countryside of Russia. This was done in an attempt to make sure the Bolsheviks had complete power. I will also asses Control of the economy and how they differ between the two systems of rule. Under Tsarist rule Russia was seen as a backwards country. There were attempts such as ‘the great spurt’ spearheaded by Sergi Witte to gain Russia’s financial strength and modernise the country and it worked to some degree.
Distinctively visual Question: how composers use distinctively visual techniques to create meaning in texts. Distinctively visual technique holds great ability to convey powerful message through the text to the responders. This is evident in the play “shoehorn sonata” as its composer John Misto explores the horror of war and the importance of friendship during the invasion of Singapore in 1942. Similarly Nick Ut’s photograph “The Napalm Girl” illustrates the brutality of human conflict in the Vietnam War as well as the innocent civilian that is mercilessly treated. Both texts demonstrates the atrocity that war brings using visual techniques although they rely on different ways to convey their message.
Both Auden and Watson effectively form representations and perspectives through the implementation of techniques within their texts. Auden actively uses poetic techniques to display his own negative perspective regarding the power of dictators in "Epitaph of a Tyrant". Auden immediately creates an ambiguous environment as the first line states how dictators are after "perfection, of a kind". The slight pause after perfection satirises its positive connotation casting doubt upon the reader questioning what type of perfection that the dictators wanted. In addition, Auden further demonstrates his negative perspective through the comment on the amount of knowledge the dictators know; "[Dictators] knew human folly like the back of [their] hand".
“How has your understanding of the consequences of change been shaped by the techniques used by various composers.” Change is the omnipresent, inevitable process of transition from one condition to another. Through close analysis of Robert Frost’s poem A Roadside Stand one can form a specified judgment of change as a process that produces catastrophic consequences through the observation of literary devices including metaphor and animal imagery. The historical context of the poem highlights such consequences of change from a socio-economic and subjective standpoint. David Fincher’s film adaptation of Chuck Palaniuk’s novel Fight Club exposes the multi faceted nature of change as an inevitable and difficult evolution with both negative and positive consequences. This specific nature of change is explored and presented through the use of camera technique to symbolise the individual processes of change.
The two texts offer readers and viewers different insights into the nature of war. Both texts use very graphic imagery which is disturbing and often macabre to illustrate the confronting reality of war. Annaud utilises visual imagery and music to help create an effectively realistic mise-en-scene throughout the film. Annaud affirms the importance of hope and love whilst demonstrating the brutal political nature of war. In “Fly Away Peter” Malouf constructs characters to show how war affects people.

Goodfellas Course Code: HUMA 038 Intructor: Naveen Joshi From: Brian Lee Student Number: 810-228-882 In the 1990 Martin Scorsese motion picture Goodfellas uses series of film techniques that are important such as colour, montage, mise-en-scene and sound to depict the main theme of Goodfellas. The main colour that was used in the film and was highly noticeable from the beginning of the film to the end was red. The colour red that is used in the film really shows that it’s associated with violence, blood, misery and passion, which show throughout the entire film. In almost every violent scene in the film it’s highlighted onscreen by a display of a bright vibrant red colour during the scene. For example the most distinct use of the crimson colour red is when Henry, Jimmy and Tommy go to the trunk of the car to dispose the body the car’s brake lights project a strong red beam at the characters which has an underlying significance, it makes you feel as though the main trio is digging a hole to dispose the body directly to hell.
The use of high-key and low-key lighting is exactly what is says, high-key lighting (4) system, this ratio is high; there is a high amount of fill light which washes out shadows cast by the key light. In low-key (3) it’s just the opposite; the ratio of fill to key light is low. Shadows cast by the key light are not completely filled in producing a shadowy effect and an uneven distribution of light (Belton 53). Because of this new type of lighting system it puts Casablanca still in another category, Hollywood’s classic film noir period. Film noir is most notable for its cinematic look; black and white cinematography, intense use of shadows and darkness, and distorted scenes.
