Most of the film’s composition is so dark that you can just see the actors’ reactions. At the end of the film however, when Vassilij finds Tania, a bright light illuminates their reunion. This is evocative because, like Fly Away Peter it reinforces the concepts of hope and love in the film. Both texts use journey motifs to emphasise the nature of war, even though each text employs a different type of journey. “Fly Away Peter” has a journey of self discovery.
Angela Bankhead Cinematography: Art & Technique Phil Katzman December 17, 2011 Cinematography in Spike Lee’s “ Do the Right Thing” Lee’s films explore issues of race, poverty, political issues and the role of the media in contemporary black life. He uses these elements to dictate how he visual expresses stories, through the use of cinematography in his work. Lee has worked with the same cinematographer, Ernest Dickerson, throughout most of his career. Dickerson’s exploratory style with the camera, allows him to play with unique camera angles and framing shots in film. His use of versatility through slow panning shots, floating camera effects and color treatment of the film, can be seen throughout his work.
I selected this film and will identify an interpersonal conflict that was not handled effectively. I will also explain my reasoning regarding why I am suggesting that the conflict was not handled effectively and what could have been done differently in my own opinion. Hitch was actually Will Smith in this movie and his love interest was Eva Mendez who played Sara. Smith is actually a love doctor also known as a specialist on love. Smith assists individuals

Winton’s short story Abbreviation, along with Clerc’s film adaptation explores different aspects of the story by foreseeing the content and perspective differently. Both texts identify Vic as travelling through his journey from a child to a young adult; however the two texts look at this through his relationships with different people. The short story identifies the reader about perspective through dialogue whilst Clerc’s film adaptation uses film techniques such as camera angles and sound effects to explore the perspective. Winton’s short story focused highly on Vic’s relationship with his family, most predominately his parents and how this slightly inhibits his ability to grow up. Winton identified Vic’s relationship with his family
Alisha Williams Prof. Engler Cause and Effect Essay 22 March 2011 What is the cause of Officer Ryans Prejudice Crash, a film directed by Paul Haggis in 2005, is a film that follows a range of characters whose lives intertwine over the course of 24 hours. These characters all have different cultures, ethnicities and backgrounds, but are each facing the same issues of racial prejudice and stereotyping because of their differences. This makes the idea that "films are primarily concerned with the issues of everyday people" a highly accurate statement in regards to Crash. Crash provides an in-depth look into these issues of prejudice and stereotyping and shows how they affect everyone's lives. Crash is the perfect analogy of how we as a human race deal with life, people and our own experiences.
Hi my name is James. And my name is Tom. In the film “On the Waterfront” directed by Elia Kazan, we are able to see how many of the characters battle with their conscience on deciding what is right and wrong which is demonstrated through filming techniques, costume and setting. The first instance of the debate between right and wrong is with the film being displayed in black and white. This shows the distinction between the battle of right and wrong and how characters are either on one side or the other.
At the end of the film, the agent of disruption, Edward, has been removed but, lest the audience should feel that Edward has been treated unjustly and the film end on a low note, the hero is given the chance to show his love for Kim and exact revenge on the obnoxious Jim. Although the suburb ostensibly returns to normal, Edward's visit has a lasting effect - snow continues to fall and he is kept alive in Kim's memory. Edward Scissorhands contains numerous stereotypical characters and the whole film satirises American society, a society whose values are as phoney as the cotton wool snow which Pete Boggs nails on his roof at Christmas time. Female stereotypes abound: we have the voracious man-eating middle-aged woman who lusts after Edward; the maternal acceptant Peg Boggs and the beautiful, virginal, adolescent daughter who eventually sees beyond Edward's superficial oddities to the underlying
Another example of Cameron’s reasoning is that he does not want to get his hopes up about having a new protégé, who is equally talented at the work he does, to employ and mentor. Ayn Rand clearly illustrates through Cameron the hardships that passionate men must go through, and through Roark, she illustrates the fearless determination and persistence of these men. Cameron is a man who gave his life to architecture and ultimately gained
Not only did he bring the issue up, but also he announced numerous ways to make a change that should work if everyone really applied the techniques to their writing. He is a teacher, but he is talking about this topic from a different point of view as a director of a writing program. It all makes sense if everybody knows that. Think about it. If he has a job that calls for him to improve writers’ techniques then he is doing just that with this argument and convincing proposal.
