Essay - Inside Out
Inside Out is a short film from 1999 made by Tom and Charles Guard, also known as The Guard Brothers. This short film shows how opposites attract, but it also shows how a big chaotic city can make love difficult.
In Inside Out the male character and the female character never really connect, they never really talk or touch each other. They never meet, because they are separated by the fashion shop's window. The window is like a barrier. Still they kind of have an instant "connection", like eye contact. When the man sees the woman he lights up, becomes energetic and he seeks her attention, he tries to act funny. The complete opposite of what he was before, a frustrated man, because no one would sign his papers, they just ignored him and walked on by. The woman is entertained by him, but she is also very shy and she tries to hide behind some mannequins. Though this could also be flirting, because she is alternately hiding, coming out, hiding again etc. This shows their differences. Two opposites meet and attract.
At the end of the short film it shows that the attraction is not strong enough. The city forces them to go their separate ways. A city which is very chaotic and not to mention, big.
The cinematic techniques amplify the chaos in the city, for example: There is a lot of short takes and close ups on peoples feet which shows that the citizens are always on the move. There is also hand-held camera and this certainly gives the idea of action and chaos, which often characterizes a big city. Busy people and many loud noises disorientates the viewer and gives a good impression of what the characters are experiencing.

In the beginning of the short film The Guard Brothers uses long shots to show how big the city actually is. The camera slowly zooms closer and closer to where the meeting between the man and the woman takes place. It gives the...

Inside Out

...The movie Inside Out showed the inner workings of a girl’s (Riley’s) mind. The writer/s packaged the movie in such a way that it would show the audience how and why a person acts in a certain manner in such an entertaining way. It used whimsical representations showing how the brain receives, processes, and lets out responses, how memories fade, and how humans develop our personalities. Expressing Riley’s consciousness are five characters, which determine her actions and thoughts: Joy, Sadness, Anger, Disgust, and Fear. These five characters are embodiments of five emotions voicing the complex workings of the human brain. It was, for me, one of the best movies Disney Pixel has ever created. There have been, however, reactions from neuroscientists regarding the metaphors or representations used in the movie. The movie according to them, though cute and entertaining, was not a neurology lesson and some important elements of the functions of the human brain were misplaced, if not missing. Hence, I am going to try and discuss the comments of some neuroscientists regarding the representations used in the movie. First is the control panel being the center of commands. There does not seem to be a control panel similar to that of the movie in the actual human brain. The consciousness, however, does not reside on a single command center but rather distributed, with each part of the brain contributing its little bit. The nearest thing the human brain has to a command center...

...My ecological footprint is 6.1. 43% of my footprint was used for food. I eat a lot of meats and processed food mainly because I’m a college student and I can’t afford to eat like I need too. 33% percent of my footprint was used for services. 10% of my footprint went to mobility because I drive a lot. 9% of my footprint went to goods and 5% went to shelter. Because I’m guilty of eating a lot of processed food and meats I know that didn’t help my footprint but I recently stopped purchasing cases of water to cut down on the impact that I have on the use of water bottles and I now use a reusable sports water bottle I purchased a couple months ago, so I know that help my footprint decrease a little. When it comes to the amount of electricity I use, it’s a very large amount. I know that’s a big reason why my footprint is 6.1. These are the reasons why my footprint 6.1. To reduce my footprint the steps I need to take are: reducing the amount of processed foods and meats I eat, investing in a bicycle to cut back on my driving time and unplugging all electronics in my room. When it comes to cutting back on the amount of processed meat I consume I could instead only eat meat twice a week instead of everyday and make sure the proportions I eat are reasonably sized and not too much. I could then purchase a bicycle and instead of driving everywhere I could bike more. In order to improve my footprint these steps are necessary.

Inside Out Movie Review

...Colegio de San Juan de Letran Niceforo Vince A. Balbedina III Midterm Requirement General Psychology Movie Reaction Write-up Disney’s Pixar’s Inside Out Born in the 21th century, I was blessed enough to grow up in the luxury that is modern animation in entertainment. I remember the first animated movie I saw was DreamWorks’ Prince of Egypt. From then on, my fascination over animation and cartoons ran like water. I was five years-old when my mother let me watch my first Pixar film which was “Toy Story”. From that moment on, Pixar never failed to fascinate me. Last Wednesday, cinemas nationwide premiered Pixar’s latest work, Inside Out. I already saw the movie trailer before I went to watch the movie itself. The movie teaser was very intriguing. In the 4 minute video, they showcased all of their classic movies and the emotions that they threw towards the audience. After the memory montage, they introduced five characters each symbolizing the five root emotions of man; Joy; shown as a yellow figure that resembles the shape of a star, Sadness; shown as a blue character that resembles the shape of a tear-drop, Anger; the red fellow in the shape of a box, Fear; the purple figure that resembles the shape of a question-mark & Disgust; shown as a green character that resembles the shape of a broccoli. The plot of the story was as simple as it was intricate. It was about the struggle of a young girl, named Riley Andersen, as her emotions meet a......

Loving Yourself Inside and Out

...Jamie McDowell October 27, 2015 “Loving yourself inside and out” Maleeka Madison, an eleven year old, in the seventh grade was having problems with students making fun of her. Not being appealing enough to her peers with very dark skin and homemade clothes was the start of her troubles. Very smart, however, being made fun of distracted her from her work. Other’s words helped develop her insecurities and low self-esteem which made her not see anything good about herself. Often feeling alone when with people, she was isolated to herself. The detachment of her favorite person in the world, her father, was the worst of all her problems. The person who was always there, always ready to talk, and always checking up on her: Gone! Do you know who Maleeka reminds me of? She reminds me of myself. Getting called ugly by my peers, although not because of my facial features, but because of my attire and the fact my hair was never done was the start of me being a target by other students in the poor, urban middle school I went to; only having one floor and two long hallways. Always wearing two matted puffy pony tails classified me as ugly. Now don’t get me wrong I didn’t always get defensive nor did I get upset, some of things said were funny. Bullying at times could be exaggerated, although there were serious bulling situations. Nevertheless, not always a person is trying to hurt you by telling you what you look like or how they feel about you. However, in Main Street Middle......

Childhood Obesity: Educating Inside and Out

...Zachery Yates English 103 Dr. Stephen Clifford 10 March 2011 Educating a Child Inside and Out “Just say NO!” This is an exclamation that we begin teaching our children in an attempt to keep them safe from harm. “Say no to drugs!” “Say no to strangers!” Our attempts in protecting children from any of the evils of the world usually fall back to having them, “Just say NO!” But, how does this protect them from the pitfalls and dangers of childhood obesity? How can we teach them to say “no” to unhealthy food or habits that are instilled upon them from their school meals, education or classmates’ influences? How can we protect their self-esteem from being damaged from childhood teasing? How can we protect them from the onset of adult disabilities while at an adolescent age? The value of an education has always been deemed as “priceless” but our current education system is allowing one of the key components of a healthy life, inside and out, to be overlooked. The missing piece in our children’s education system is the emphasis being placed on physical fitness. Today’s children are required to proficiently pass certain benchmarks in the areas of Reading, Writing and Math. But, these components are not enough to protect our children and educate our children for the eventual road to adulthood. Physical fitness needs to be recognized as one of the essential areas of childhood growth and education. It must be treated with as much importance as the current mental benchmarks of......

Story

...The sky was completely pitch black. There was a haunted house. It had a purplish-blackish roof. The house was painted completely pitch black. The door was an indigo color. The lights were out, but the chimney was puffing out black puffy smoke. On the roof there were some very scary looking bats. They even looked real. On the front door there was a skeleton, and it kept on repeating, "Don't enter! Save Your Soul!" There were vines and plants growing over the haunted house. On a windowsill there was even a fake Chucky. When I started walking up to the door I felt like I was going to explode! I was so freaked out. I started sweating and started to shake. I was there, all alone. I wanted to scream, but it wouldn't come out. I was getting more freaked out by every step. I actually felt like I should turn back and run. But, the haunted house made me feel sort of drawn to it. A bat flew overhead and shrieked "eek!" I went to the doorknob and reached for it. It felt slimy and gooey. I looked and saw it had red stuff on it. I took the red stuff off my hand and then the doorknob. I felt the doorknob and it felt like soft wood. It was a dark maroon color and looked big compared to my little hand. When I opened the door it creaked louder and louder until I finally opened it the whole way. In the inside I smelled something burning. I saw spiders and cobwebs and dust. The light bulb was very dim. I wanted to turn back but I was drawn to it. I walked to the stairs and went up the......

The 3 Little Pigs

...The Story of The Three Little Pigs Once upon a time, there was a mother pig who had three little baby pigs. The three little pigs grew so big that their mother said to them, "You are too big to live here any longer. You must go and build houses for yourselves. But take care that the wolf does not catch you." The three little pigs set off. "We will take care that the wolf does not catch us," they said. Soon they met a man who was carrying some straw. "Please will you give me some straw?" asked the first little pig. "I want to build a house for myself." "Sure," said the man, and he gave the first little pig some straw. The first little pig built himself a house out of it. He was very pleased with his house. He said, "Now the wolf won't catch me and eat me!" The second little pig and the third little pig went on along the road. Soon they met a man who was carrying some sticks. "Please will you give me some sticks?" asked the second little pig. "I want to build a house for myself." "Sure," said the man, and he gave the second little pig some sticks. Then the second little pig built himself a house of sticks. It was stronger than the house of straw. The second little pig was very pleased with his house. He said, "Now the wolf won't catch me and eat me!" The third little pig walked along the road by himself. Soon he met a man carrying some bricks. "Please will you give me some bricks?" asked the third little pig. "I want to build a house for myself."

A Split Second

...One Split Second The day began with a flood of excitement, as everyone rushed around trying to pack. My daughter and her college roommate had arrived home last night; at 7 am, I banged on the walls and said “get up, get up, you have two hours and we are out the door, pack to be gone for four days”. Seven hours later we were sitting on a 17th floor balcony of our condo, overlooking the beach, the place that was to be our home for the next four days. Sometime following, unpacking, a walk on the beach, dinner, some shopping and making plans for the next four days we finally found our way to bed and some much needed rest. My pillow, I carry with me everywhere, felt inviting and familiar as my head laid to rest upon it. The soothing smell of jasmine told me, it was time to rest. The distance sound of the song “I Love Rock N Roll” caused me to stir from my slumber, but not enough to wake me. Then, there it was again piercing through the fog of my sleep “Just take those old records off the self” somewhere through my sleepy fog I realized it was my phone, my baby brother’s signature ringtone. I fumbled to find the little green button that I needed to push to answer, and I noticed the clock was glowing 4:32 am. That is when my stomach dropped, and I knew something was wrong, with trembling hands I pushed the little green button, and in that one split second my life was changed forever. Expecting to hear my brother’s voice on the other end all I heard was sobbing, the kind that......

Leadership and Self Deception

...Leadership and Self-deception Getting Out of The Box Leadership and self-deception is a book written by the Arbinger Institute that explains to us how we as people can get stuck in a place or problem known as being “Inside the Box”. We can be stuck “Inside the Box” whether it is in our personal lives toward family members and friends or whether it is at work toward our Boss and other co-workers. Through a cleverly concocted story the author explains how we are either “Inside the Box” or “Outside the Box” and how to stay out of the box once we enter it. The story starts out telling us of a man named Ted who is impressed with a company called Zagrum and he would love to work for them and after multiple interviews and weeks of waiting he finally hears back and finds out that he gets the job. One of Teds first major meetings is with his soon to be boss Bud who asks him to meet him for a meeting that is seemingly so secret that nobody talks to him about it or gives any hints to what it is even about. Everyone seems to know what is going on except Ted. With much anticipation and waiting Ted is led to Buds office and waits nervously for his arrival. When Bud finally gets there he then informs Ted that “He has a problem” and while Ted wonders what that is Bud will soon enthusiastically explain the meaning of his problem and go into more specifics and detail that I’m sure Ted would care for or even expect. As Bud and Ted talk Bud is asking all sorts of seemingly strange and at......
