VID106 Video Production Fundamentals

A mysterious man living in a suburban home wakes up one morning and does his normal routine to get ready for work. As he walks out from the front door to his car on the driveway…

I have chosen “Hitman” as the title of this short film. The aim is to create a 2 to 3 minute story in the genre of mystery. Within this mystery genre, a middle age man will be introduced without any dialogue but with a voiceover narration, as he gets ready for work. As we explore the life about this man over the narrative track, the key conventions will lead the audience into a false sense of knowledge. The main concept of this film is to build up to the climax where the audience will be shocked by a twist to the plot. This supposed genre would allow the viewer to become caught up in the theme and make the wrong assumption until the twist is revealed in the end.

Script Outline
The short film begins with a close-up shot of an alarm clock ringing at 6am waking up the man in the bed. The camera shows a few shots around his room where everything is perfectly…...

Why Children Kill

...they see and hear. Too many parents want to shrug their kids' behavior off on ADD or some other convenient excuse that absolves them of any responsibility for how their kids turn out. As parents we need to take responsibility and assume burden for our kids’ actions if we don’t provide a well rounded education and help them become respectable society members. Nevertheless, others believe that the environment has an influence between crime and violence. In a recent crime statistics report Alfred Blumstein showed how drugs increase violence in certain neighborhoods. He stated that “There is a disorganization in such communities all created by sale and use of illicit drugs”. As we can see in the news lately a 14 year old American boy was a “Hitman”, for a dangerous drug-cartel in Mexico. According, to Mexican law enforcement, Edgar Jimenez, alias “El Ponchi” and his 16 year old sister worked together and Edgar would slit the throat of his victims while his sister got rid of the remains. Edgar said that his sister and him were threaten by the drug cartel and were told that if they did not commit these horrible acts; they would end up dead. One can very much say that these kids did not grow in a stable environment which held them to accountable of acceptable behavior. Social conduct should be a priority in community held meetings; clubs and after-school programs should be available to children and neighborhoods should work together and avoid creating monsters such Edgar......

Resistance: Fall of Man, observed by Johan Huizinga’s theory of magic circle supports the thesis by how religious activities can resemble play.

Economic Hitman

...Confessions of an Economic Hit Man By John Perkins Preface Economic hit men (EHMs) are highly paid professionals who cheat countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars. They funnel money from the World Bank, U.S. Agency for International Development, and other foreign “aid” organizations into the coffers of huge corporations and the pockets of a few wealthy families who control the planet's natural resources. Their tools include fraudulent financial reports, rigged elections, payoffs, extortion, sex, and murder. They play a game as old as empire, but one that has taken on new and terrifying dimensions during this time of globalization. I should know; I was an EHM. I wrote that in 1982, as the beginning of a book with the working title Conscience of an Economic Hit Man. The book was dedicated to the presidents of two countries, men who had been my clients, whom I respected and thought of as kindred spirits—Jaime Roldós, president of Ecuador, and Omar Torrijos, president of Panama. Both had just died in fiery crashes. Their deaths were not accidental. They were assassinated because they opposed that fraternity of corporate, government, and banking heads whose goal is global empire. We EHMs failed to bring Roldós and Torrijos around, and the other type of hit men, the CIA-sanctioned jackals who were always right behind us, stepped in. I was persuaded to stop writing that book. I started it four more times during the next twenty years. On each occasion, my decision......

Computer Simulated World

...Introduction Conspiracy theories are some of the most talked about topics in the entire world. Many of the conspiracies out there range from either it’s possible to completely off the wall. The one conspiracy theory that caught my interest out of all the others though, was the idea that we are living in a computer simulation created by an intelligent race. Many of the most intelligent people in the world believe we are actually living in a computer simulated universe, and these are some of the most brilliant minds in the world. The computer simulation theory is primarily based around the matrix movie which I have a small picture of in Figure A (hitman, 2011), but not entirely based around it. In the theory, scientists believe that we are all in a computer simulation being run by a higher being or beings. One of the biggest arguments here would probably be that we have free will, so we cannot just be in a simulation. Many people believe though that God works in mysterious ways and in the end has a master plan for us all. What if God is just controlling us just like we control characters on games like the Sims, and we just think that we are actually in control of our destinies? One of the leading theories scientist claim proves this idea is the Brain-In-A-Vat Argument. In this theory a person’s brain is removed from their body and is floating in life sustaining fluid. The brain then is connected with wires that simulate the impulses it would normally be receiving, all......

Confessions of an Economic Hitman

...Reflection for Confessions of an Economic Hitman This story addresses a very important matter between the United States and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The United States uses many tactics to get what they want and to make things happen. Also, the United States keeps many of its operations classified so people don’t know what is going on. The main reason behind the matter between both countries is because Saudi Arabia announced an embargo. This is where the United States decided to send a man from one of their organizations to make a deal with the Saudi’s, his name was John Perkins. Perkins, an economic hitman, was brought in for a particular job. His job was to develop forecasts that predict what might happen in Saudi Arabia if vast amounts of money were invested in its infrastructure, and to map out scenarios for spending the money. Everything he did was classified and top secret because no one can know about his job; not even his wife! This was a highly secret operation. Perkins is considered a very reliable narrator, mainly because he actually lived through and experienced all of it. Also, he personally witnessed all events, even stating the events in his story. This is a true story that stayed classified from everyone except the organization, from knowing what Saudi Arabia is doing! Perkin’s description of the events is valid for a few reasons: there are many witnesses that can back him up and the proof located inside the documents and reports written and given. I......

Crminol; Kn

...Richard "The Iceman" Kuklinski committed his first murder when he was 14. He grew up to become a Mafia hitman, known as "The Iceman" for often freezing his victims to obscure their time of death. Kuklinski was contracted by Newark's DeCavalcante crime family and New York's Five Families of the American Mafia. After being arrested in 1986, he became enamored with the spotlight, giving interviews to writers and psychiatrists, spilling about the myriad ways he'd killed his victims and bragging about how many lives he'd taken—up to 200. He died in prison in 2006. Kuklinski's enthusiastic criminal career included robbery, hijackings and pornography, but murder was his forte. He earned Mafia respect at age 18 by efficiently and unquestioningly killing a random man selected for him on the sidewalk. He soon became the Genovese crime family's indispensible hitman, known for thoroughly disposing of his victims—removing their teeth and fingers, or dumping them off bridges, in rivers or down mine shafts. He also worked for Newark's DeCavalcante crime family and New York City's Five Families, including the Gambinos. His resume for killing included guns, ice picks, hand grenades, crossbows and chainsaws, but his favorite method of murder, he'd later proudly confess, was a nasal-spray bottle filled with cyanide. Kuklinski would later say that he learned many of these tactics from fellow hitman Robert Pronge, also known as "Mister Softee" because he drove an ice cream truck as his cover.......

The Hitman Media Analysis

...Semiotic Deconstruction of ‘’The HITMAN’’ (spring 2006) Advert In the advert of ‘’The HITMAN: Blood Money” uses the colour red several time in the advert. The title of the game ‘Blood Money’ is in red and so is part of the robe and the shoes that the woman is wearing. This colour helps link in with the theme of passion, love and blood and its to remind the audience that the video game is to do with shooting, killing, fighting. We know that it is a video game because in the at the bottom on the left there is logos of video game e.g. Play station,Xbox and Xbox live. In contrast, the background uses the colour gold and black. The gold sheets suggests luxury, wealth, quality because it not like any other ordinary sheets that you will see on the bed. The black suggest death, mystery and the unknown because the woman I lying there with a bullet in the middle of her head and we don’t know why and how. In the advert of “The HITMAN” the woman is lying on the bed in a sexualised position wearing a black floral silk robe with red high heel with black nail polish which suggest that she is a lady of the night. The woman has several quality gold bracelet on the wrist which suggest that it is cheaper and in expensive and it probably not real gold. The black floral silk robe suggest that pattern is exotic and silk is expensive, the pattern on the rode can show that it is from an Asian culture because Asian culture clothes has floral on it, it can also mean mystery and pleasure......

Movie Review - Hitman - Agent 47

...down to it. For those of you who don’t know, the movie is based out of a Danish game from the early 2000s, called ‘Hitman‘. The game’s storyline revolves around Agent 47, a cloned super-assassin for hire who has superhuman abilities and a flawless record of kills. It was a pretty nifty game, and adapting it into the big screen was inevitable. All things said, the movie was a decent attempt at bringing the Hitman mythos to life – It had to expand the plot from the video game source, include some drama, some tension, and generally apply liberal assault on logic and sensibilities to shoehorn action sequences wherever possible. When it comes to leave-your-brain-behind type of movies, I’m quite happy for them to shoehorn in action sequences. (Sarah Palin has been preparing for such movies all her life.) Amidst the shoehorned action scenes, we have a few good moments of fun, and a few twists, which, while nonsensical, fit in well with the movie’s overall tone. Overall, the movie could have been done better, but I still rate rate it good enough for a lazy afternoon watch. But that’s enough talk about the 2007 movie, ‘Hitman’, the one starring Timothy Olyphant. It was never a great movie, but compared to the new 2015 reboot, it was downright genius. Timothy Olyphant is still writing thank-you notes to the new movie’s crew. The 2015 reboot is titled “Hitman: Agent 47“. It focuses once again, on the insanely skilled nameless super-duper-assassin who goes by the......
