Children are seen to be the future leaders after we’ve lived our lives. They are to carry on in the world and make improvements for the better. With that, they are to be taught responsibility and good decision making skills. How parents go about on teaching that to their kids is in their own unique way based on their given circumstances. Some parents are able to succeed in properly raising their child and some fail for whatever reason. Some children, with enough self determination and discipline are able to guide themselves if their parents are absent in their lives. Mad Hot Ballroom, Painted Dolls, and Spellbound are documentaries on one of many programs that are available to kids. Along with each documentary is a unique program for kids that you may not have considered before. Mad Hot Ballroom is an Expository mode documentary. The point of an Expository mode documentary is to make an argument. Mad Hot Ballroom is an inspiring documentary about a ballroom dance competition program for New York City’s public schools. This film follows kids at an elementary school in Washington Heights. The school is the most immigrated and poorest school in the competition. The effectiveness of the choice of mode was something you had to think about. The argument is not blatant but one that you would see if you were analyzing it. The underlying argument is that its a great and healthy idea to have your children exposed to different cultures other than their parents. By doing this you’re making your child aware that there’s other cultures than your own and that you shouldn’t ridicule another culture but to try and understand it instead ; being able to peacefully co-exist, accept that theres other cultures and not pass judge because someone doesn’t share the same beliefs as you. This builds a well rounded mindset for when they mature. They will be maturing with a more advanced…...

... The scholarly literature has shown that Black men academically underperform all groups throughout the educational pipeline (Hood, 1992; Jackson, 2003; Polite, 1994; Watson & Hodges, 1991).  Jameson (1991) explains that film can be a useful vehicle for unveiling harsh realities about the lived experiences of sundry people.  In Boyz N The Hood (1991), John Singleton offers an alarming account of the survived experiences of Black people, particularly Black men, in a poverty-ravaged South Central Los Angeles neighborhood.  At the center of the film’s narrative is the relationship and interactions between three young Black males: Tre Styles, Darrin “Doughboy” Baker, and Ricky Baker. The audience sees how racism, indifference, rampant violence, and the increasing disintegration of the Black family in South Central Los Angeles militate against the coming of age of these three Black males.  As a contribution to the scholarly discourse on Boyz N The Hood, this paper provides an examination of how structural dimensions of the setting in which the film is set (South Central Los Angeles) have a damaging impact on the progression of these Black males.  The structural frame championed by Bolman and Deal (2008) serves as the dominant lens through which this film is analyzed. John Singleton's movie Boyz N The Hood is the story of three young men who are forced to deal with the reality of life in South Central, Los Angeles. Singleton uses this setting to illustrate the obstacles......

...has occurred in the development of film is the linearity of narrative. The history of film spans over one hundred years ago, with classical narrative emerging in Hollywood around the nineteen thirties. The classical narrative period had a strong emphasis on linearity and coherence, where characters where goal centred and consistent in personality and action. In the nineteen sixties a change began to emerge in Hollywood, with Breathless (Jean-Luc Godard, 1960) breaking the editing rules, and narrative coherence, with the introduction of jump cuts. This film among others greatly contributed to the outburst of non-linear narratives, a narrative technique wherein events are portrayed out of chronological order. In the twenty-first century a range of independent films with a variety of non-linear narratives have been getting mainstream release. Within this essay I will briefly explain the different types of narratives and the reasons for their popularity. The directorial intent for many non-linear narratives can be to evoke mood, maintain suspense, indicate the malleability of memory, signify dream, and above all to provide visual pleasure. The involvement that a spectator can feel from a non-linear narrative can offer both a sense of pleasure and relation. The fact that it is up to the viewer to keep up, put things together, and make sense of the narrative provides a sense of satisfaction, and can become the reason they are watching the film. Removing the chronological order......

...What made this a “good” story? The beginning of the film when the narrator was describing the background of Iran, the people, the Shah and the current leader. This was very informative because it educated me on certain events and how the people of Iran felt about the Shah. What the Shah put everyone who was a citizen of Iran through and how America gave him asylum but he was dying of cancer so they really didn’t feel the need to give him back. The people of Iran wanted him to come back so he could pay for the pain and anguish he put the people of Iran through. He damaged many innocent lives. I never knew so much problems were going on in Iran, and I never thought the leader of Iran could turn his back on his own people and when he deserves to be punished for his action, there is nothing they can do. I learned so much about the emotions and feelings that the people of Iran went through, and I feel very thankful that I live in a country where we have our own power, control and freedom and there is no one who can decide what we do and want in life. The scenes where after the Americans were taken into hostage, how the president and the CIA had to come up with a plan to try to get them back home safely. This kept my attention because it was somewhat of an interesting way they decided to go undercover in Iran without being noticed. I would have never thought that the CIA would pretend to be film students shooting a movie in order to get the hostages back. When I......

...Scream 2 Elements of Design I chose the movie clip from the film Scream 2. In this clip there is a movie preview of the movie Stab which is based on the book written by the reporter Gail Weathers from Scream 1. The setting is dark and rowdy with people running around joking. Some movie goers are dressed in the slasher attire complete with the mask and carrying plastic knives. They all seem to be horsing around, running, throwing popcorn, and emulating the slasher character with plastic knives. The camera focuses on a young couple, Maureen and Steven. Maureen is sitting alone when her “boyfriend” Steven with the slasher masked on came back to their seating area unbeknownst to her that her boyfriend was a victim of the real killer and is now dead. Upon her hugging him she finds blood on her hands and the real slasher immediately begins stabbing her multiple times. Although this murder happen in public view, the movie goers assumed it was a part of the show and did nothing as Maureen was killed. The Scream 2 film was a horror flick in one of many other Scream series. The artists involved in the production of this film are; the director Wesley Craven, production designer Robert Zimebicki, and the art director Ted Berner. This team worked hand in hand to deliver a phenomenon horror film. The director Wesley Craven is not new to horror film making. He also is also popular for his direction and acting in the well known film series Nightmare on Elm Street. In the movie Scream as......

...opened to rave reviews and roaring box office success, says he chooses a film on the basis of the script and not box office prospects. "PK", which came out Friday, has managed to gross Rs.95.21 crore in three days. When asked if it is true that he chooses films on the basis of box office prospects, Aamir said: "It's a very unfortunate trend because the moment creative people start thinking about numbers, then the shadow of the numbers influences the kind of film they choose and pick." If the team of Aamir, director Rajkumar Hirani and producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra created history with "3 Idiots" in 2009, the trio have repeated the same success with "PK", a film that boasts of a unique concept. It uses an alien to talk about the ills of society and not only makes viewers laugh and cry but also makes them think. "The moment I start choosing films that can do Rs.100 crore business, then my choice becomes very limited and I can only do films like 'Avengers' or 'Spider-Man', which go on to achieve those numbers. This really kills creativity to an alarming extent, so I have always selected my films based on what I feel towards them," he said. "Like 'Taare Zameen Par' went on to do good business and I didn't know it would. I just did it because I liked the script. Also, I selected 'Rang De Basanti' because I loved the script. I did 'Lagaan' when the entire film industry thought it was a disaster. "So these films I have not picked looking at the box office collection, I picked......

Avante Garde Film

... Avant Garde Film What Constitutes a Diary Film, and Why Might it be Considered a Form of Avant-Garde or ‘Critical’ Film? In order to answer this question there are a few areas that require specific definition. The term Avant-Garde itself is something that often can differ in its exact meaning due to interpretation. This makes it an almost undesiferrable term for both historians and critics alike. Critic, Ian Christie claims that the term is, ‘always open to dispute and redefinition.’[1] This claim has very strong foundations. The very nature of Avant-Garde film requires it to be at the forefront of experimentation. As new techniques are explored and boundaries are broken down, what may have been at the forefront of experimentation in the Fifties for example, may be one of the most used techniques in Hollywood by the Seventies or now. This gives the impression that to remain innovative, Avant-Garde directors must change style to fit what is required of them during their particular time period. The mention of Hollywood hints at the relationship it has with the Avant-Garde. Murray Smith describes Avant-Garde as a ‘personal mode’, and goes on to say the films are made by, ‘filmmakers alone or in combination with private patronage and grants from arts institutions.’[2] It seems easy to glean that Avant-Garde cinema works outside the Hollywood community. This ‘personal mode’ gives filmmakers a chance to make films for reasons beyond money. To test...

...of home video technologies change the American film industry? In what ways did the studios—who in 1976 regarded home video as a competitor—exploit these technologies to their advantage? The way home video technologies changed the American film industry was by the invention of the home videocassette recorder in 1976, and Matsushita introduced its Video Home System (VHS) soon after. Sales took off in the early 1980s, and by 1988 most U.S. households, nearly 60 million, had a VCR. Studios established divisions to make and distribute cassettes. Sales to rental stores, particularly the growing national chains, proved very lucrative. 2. How did the policies of "synergy" and "high concept" transform American film industry structure in the 1980s and 1990s? What kinds of films resulted from these policies, and in what ways did distributors and exhibitors try to profit from such films? 3. What is "intensified continuity"? In what ways does this system of formal conventions depart from the classical continuity style of Hollywood filmmaking? Intensified continuity is a more rapid editing i.e. shorter average shot lengths, more close framings in dialogue scenes, and a free-ranging camera. Intensified continuity encouraged some film- makers to enhance the trend through slow-motion, fast- motion, changes in film stock or color casts, split screen, and other highly visible devices. 4. What factors enabled independent films to proliferate from the 1980s to the 2000s? ......

...Film Appreciation Final Exam The film “what dreams may come”(Vincent Ward 1998) can be described as an emotional and dramatic film. This film should be preserved for a variety of reasons. The film is aesthetically significant for its unique special effects and storyline. The reason this is so is because many of the elements produced and the Mise-en-scene of each effect and character is quite stunning. The first aesthetic element shown is the story’s unique storyline, as many twists and turns shift your expectations left and right. The point of view in this story is subjective, and the first establishing shot begins as we follow the pediatrician Chris Nielsen, and we eventually see him meet and marry his wife and have children. The plot twists when the children die in a car crash, and the audience is shocked, and just when everything starts to feel right again, Chris dies in another car crash. The wife commits suicide, and audiences are in awe as the entire family they began to know was diminished. The storyline itself shows unique twists to each expectation the audience has, and proves to be significant because many films followed these plot twists of tragedy to create drama. The special effects in this movie proved to be quite unique. The main character Chris dies and goes to heaven, and the special effects show him inside a painting like world as the environment can be changed around him and is very slushy. The scene shows him dashing across a river......

Film is considered to be an important art form ,a popular source of entertainment and a powerful method of education .Film is also considered to be a way of communication . By using dubbing or subtitle that translate the dialogue into the language of the viewer ,some films have become popular worldwide. MYSTERY OF FILM We think that film is a moving process but it is not a moving process. There is a mystery. Films are made up of a series of individual images called frames. When these images are shown rapidly in succession, a viewer has the illusion that motion is occurring. The viewer cannot see the flickering between frames due to an effect known as persistence of vision .Whereby the eye retains a visual image for a fraction of a second after the source has been removed .Viewers perceive motion due to a psychological effect called beta movement.( ). THE BEGINNING The film has a great history. The early films were quite difference from the present films. Films are developing day by day for many people’s afford and hard work. The Frenchman Louis Lumiere is called as the inventor of the motion picture camera in 1895 . Another inventor is Thomas Alva Edison and he was a competitor of......
