What have I learned? What have I done? What will these skills help me with in the future? Pre-Production my Independent study. My second block class, my chance to take time for myself to learn, having no teachers just me and no one else helping me out. Film, my dream career to be a director. I learned something about myself during this class that actually surprised me, when you get down to the real film work there is so much more than people realize. I thought that originally when you have a film all you do is say “Hey I want this idea to be a movie” then the company is like “Okay your idea will be a movie for this amount of money” Then “Okay we need actors and a script” They get all of that then they film then edit and distribute. Many times doing my research I came across the phrase “Pre-Production is the most important stage of filmmaking” Every time I looked at that I just thought well what makes it so important? Then I thought about it, if you look at Pre-Production without looking at your entire project you just think back breaking long exhausting work, but truth be told Pre-Production is the most important step of all of the five stages. I am even experiencing that right now with a film I am directing. Yes it is true that Pre-Production is long exhausting work that does feel like you are going to tear out your hair any minute. What I found many times while researching is that if you don’t do the Pre-Production stage your movie will be in seriously in trouble once you get in post-production. Why? Well if you don’t do Pre-Production what you’re saying to yourself is “I don’t need to plan out I can just hit random buttons on a camera and shoot this film. Yeah if you avoid this step you will pretty much kill everything your movie could have been.
What is Pre-Production? What have I learned from it? “Pre-Production. Pre-Production, also known as Prep, is the…...

Homosexual Acceptance

...Turn of the Century: Homosexuality Acceptance Marjorie A. Webster Ashford University Cultural Awareness in the Human Services HHS 320 Professor Andrea Shenkman July 25, 2012 Turn of the Century: Homosexuality Acceptance Our society and our sitcoms have evolved from what it used to be in the 1950s, during the time of Ricky Ricardo and Lucy Ball in the “I Love Lucy” show. Fast forward to the 21st century, television shows such as, “Glee”, “Will and Grace”, and “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” carry different themes than those of Ricky’s and Lucy’s silly innocent antics. When in time did our society get over the initial shock of an interracial Ricky and Lucy laying in one bed, to accepting homosexual couples on television? Our society expands further than Hollywood antics, especially with sensitive issues dealing with our individual beliefs, traditions, and customs. In this paper, I will cover the media effect of sexual orientation exposure, the brief history and repeal of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, and the acceptance of same-sex marriages in the United States. It goes without saying that the United States is the salad bowl of the world; socially accepting of all races, gender, religion, and now sexual orientation. America is moving forward and embracing a more diverse culture and practices and it is backing it up with concrete legal and political significance. Due to the imminent and overwhelming media exposure of homosexuality, it is evident, be......

Acceptance

...Acceptance Lindsay Reid LS 311 Kaplan University Professor James Starcher July 29, 2012 Acceptance In the case of Carrie, Antonio and Norvel, Carrie offers to sell Antonio a set of legal encyclopedias for $300.00. Antonio says he has to think about it and will let Carrie know the next day. Norvel, who overheard the offer to Antonio, tells Carrie he accepts her offer. Carrie gives Norvel the encyclopedias in return for $300.00. The next day, Antonio, unaware of the transaction between Norvel and Carrie, accepts Carrie’s offer. Technically Carrie has not breached a valid contract with Antonio, as he had not accepted the terms of the agreement. There was also no contract between Norvel and Carrie formed since Norvel accepted an offer that was originally made for Antonio. The first requirement of a valid contract is agreement. Because Antonio never agreed to Carrie’s offer there was never a contract created between them. This leaves Carrie free to do as she wishes with the encyclopedias. On the other hand, Carrie is not obligated to sell the encyclopedias to Norvel, as there is no contract between them since Carrie’s offer was originally made to Antonio. According to Miller, “generally, a third person can-not substitute for the offeree and effectively accept the offer” (Miller, 2008, p. 173). The offer is conditional to the identity of the offeree, so except in special situations, only the person to whom the offer is actually made can accept it and create a binding......

Acceptance and Oppression

...Acceptance and Oppression Of Two Spirits and Hijras Marla Houston Ashford University Anthropology 101 Instructor Michelle Loose Celebration and Oppression Of Two Spirits and Hijras We see a number of cultures that have an identified third gender. “The baku in the Philippines, xaniths in Oman, serrers among the Pokot people of Kenya” (Khan, S et al., 2009). Throughout these cultures people are being revered, oppressed, celebrated, and mocked. Specifically, this will be a discussion of the differences between the Two Spirits of the Lakota Nation and the Hijra of South Asia, and how both cultures have changed throughout the years from cultural evolution and colonization. An example from Lakota Nation is “an old Lakota word, “Winyanktehca” has today been contracted to the simple word, “Wintke,” meaning, “two-souls-person” (Schützer, 1995). Two Spirit people are revered in the Lakota nation, they are considered sacred, spiritual and mysterious. When the European settlers arrived in the “new world”, they worked to change multiple aspects of the Lakota nation, including the treatment of the Wintke. Wintke are called to transform their gender in dreams from their deity. Schützer (1995) stated that she was given a choice “Lakota deities never order. [Her] gender transformation was called for by the Spirits” (Shützer, 1995). Schützer felt called by her ancestors, the spirits that she worshiped and held sacred, to change her life and her experience......

Pre Production Evaluation

...Pre-Production Evaluation Charlie Hill My pre-production I gained an insight into the media concepts behind my project. I researched similar music videos related to my chosen genre other than the original track ‘ALL CAPS’ to get more of an understanding of what defines a Hip-Hop act, and to get inspiration from their work to reflect into my own music video. I noticed that they use dull lighting, in many of their videos, and they often use a spot like lighting to emphasise a verse. I liked the idea of having a dull, monotonous atmosphere within my video because it would make the spotlight scenes more captivating and draw your attention to the song/specific verse. I also researched A Tribe Called Quest’s music video ‘Jazz (We’ve Got)’, as they share the same genre, and additionally had similar lighting techniques. This gave it more of a chill feel and exerted the exact vibe that I want to portray in my music video. The gloomy lighting used by both artists perfectly conveys the alternative sub-genres of Hip-Hop, this is the sort of style that will attract my target audience of young adults. From my research I found that Madvillain uses many different camera angles in his videos to give some diversity within his filming. They use a lot of extreme close ups of people’s faces in both music videos for ‘Accordion’ and ‘Rhinestone Cowboy’, the artist is renowned for wearing a mask, hiding his......

Acceptance Is the Key

...ACCEPTANCE IS THE KEY -RoMae The third sex was and still is an issue in today’s society. They aren’t accepted by the people around them and sometimes they aren’t even accepted by their own families. They are discriminated, bullied physically and emotionally and these things lead them to fear other people which cause self-torture, self-pity and sometimes even suicide. But why aren’t they accepted in our society? Is it because they’re different—that they don’t belong to the norms because God only made men and women not gays and lesbians nor bisexuals and transgenders? But aren’t they human too so why can’t they be treated equally as how we, men and women, are treated? I know a lot of people who belongs to the third sex. Take for example one of my friends and former classmate in high school, Ronel, a fine-looking young man who is a part of the LGBT community. When I asked him what the reasons behind him being gay were, he answered that it had always been in him, that he had always thought of himself as a girl trapped in a boy’s body. The same goes with another friend and former classmate, Jonas, who despite having a strict father turned out to be gay which he said that it was the effect of him playing with girls when he was still very young. Hanging out with girls and other gays was also the reason why Mark and Christian, two of my friends since elementary, turned out to be bisexuals. On the other hand, I don’t know much about the Lesbians. But I do know some people like......

...3.0 Acceptance 3.1 Definition of acceptance Acceptance is an express actor implication by conduct that manifests assent to the terms of an offer in a manner invited or required by the offer so that a binding contract is formed. The exercise of power conferred by an offer by performance of some act. The act of a person to whom something is offered or tendered by another, whereby the offered demonstrates through an act invited by the offer an intention of retaining the subject of the offer.

An acceptance must be unconditional and unqualified. Accepting an offer with conditions, varitions and reservations amounts to counter offer and rejection of gthe origional offer.

Offer & Acceptance

...mere expression of willingness to enter into negotiations. Subsequently, Freddie was the one who actually offered to sell to Shaggy the display case at the price of RM 160,000.00. The second issue in this case is whether Shaggy’s silence can amount to an acceptance of Freddie’s offer of the display case, hence forming a contract between the two parties. According to section 3 of the Contracts Act 1950, it is provided, inter alia, that communication of acceptance of proposals is deemed to be made by any act or omission of the acceptor by which he intends to communicate the acceptance or which has the effect of communicating it. In Re Selectmove Ltd, the Court of Appeal expressed that silence can be interpreted as acceptance when the offeree himself indicates that the offer is taken to be accepted if he does not indicate to the contrary by an ascertainable time. In other words, the offeree himself undertakes to speak if he does not want an agreement to be concluded. Applying the facts into the current case, Shaggy, as the offeree, was actually the one who imposed that if Freddie did not hear anything from him in two weeks’ time, then Freddie was to consider the offer as agreed. Hence, Shaggy’s silence can amount to an acceptance, forming a valid contract between the two parties. When Freddie sold the case to Velma last week, he was in fact already bound by a contract between Shaggy and himself. This is because the sale of the display case took place after the duration of two......

...blockbuster. Before the 10BA Tax Incentives blockbuster production was severely handicapped by lack of funds and publicity infrastructure. 10BA made both possible. Several general points about Crocodile Dundee as a blockbuster film are worth making to begin with. As a product of the tendency for box office revenues to concentrate in a handful of films in any one year, this blockbuster phenomenon (like The Godfather (1974) and Star Wars (1977)) led Hogan and Cornell to try and create a film "event" and to manage it appropriately. They did this in a number of ways. * Both the publicity and the release patterns worked to create the film as an event, as a phenomenon. * This was achieved through a multi-levelled and simultaneous campaign across the media (TV, magazine, radio, newspapers, and advertising) involving appearances, interviews, features articles, stories, and ads relating to Hogan, the film and its other creative talent (Linda Kozlowski, Faiman etc) * Given the double edged provisos of audience and social text it is not surprising that Dundee's producers had their origins in commercial TV. Crocodile Dundee was based on the TV comic and ad personality developed as (by) Paul Hogan in conjunction with "Strop" Cornell (a former straight man to Hogan in the Paul Hogan Show). It was directed by Peter Faiman better known for his work with Hogan, for live TV and music specials. * All the same, as a blockbuster production by 'first time' producers, directors and......

Changes in Social Relationships at Work Under Different Modes of Production

...NAME; TAWANDA COURSE; INDUSTRIAL SOCIOLOGY QUESTION; DESCRIBE THE CHANGES IN SOCIAL RELATIONSHIPS AT WORK UNDER DIFFERENT MODES OF PRODUCTION. Social relationships at work have been changing over time under different modes of production. However, the definition of work has been a contested area due to factors like the differentiation and work and labour, work and non-work and work as employment among other factors. Even though Arendt (1958) defines work as activity undertaken with our hands which gives objectivity to the world. Social relations have been changing to meet the demands of the type of mode of production. In broad outline, Marxist theory recognises several distinctive modes of production characteristic of different epochs in human history. Primitive communism is the first mode of production in the Marxist theory. This is described as a traditional type of cooperation which first appeared about two million years ago. During this period relations of production were based on collective ownership of the means of production by individual communes. They used extremely backward productive forces and primitive forces of labour which can also be called collective labour thus social relationships at work were characterised by collective labour. Due to these characteristics there was economic equality among the primitive people and the absence of exploitation of man by other man. These people were independent......

The editing equipment has been outdated for over 10 years. The post-production supervisor, Janet Mason, is advocating replacing the equipment with more up-to-date digital technology. Hal, the production company’s owner, made a promise to Janet that he will look into the possibility of acquiring the much needed upgrade to the editing equipment.

...with three principal methods: mechanical, chemical and biological. The treatment of sewage includes the following stages 1. Waste water accumulation and management 2. Waste water pre-treatment 3. Waste water oxidation 4. Waste water clarification and filtration 5. Waste water disinfection 6. Sludge treatment. The sewage treatment is usually a combination of the three principal methods, such as mechanical-chemical, mechanical-biological and chemical-biological. The shipboard sewage treatment plant should be small, simple, and reliable and have moderate running costs. The treatment plant should function well in all waste water concentrations and during flow peaks. The plant should be also easy to maintain and operate, and fulfill current purification requirements. The plant operation highly depends on the technical personnel and the sewage being cleaned. − BOD5: 50 mg/l − TSS: 100 mg/l (shipboard test) − Faecal coliforms: 250 cfu/100 ml. Waste water pre-treatment Wastewater pre-treatment protects the other phases of the purification process. Sewage contains a lot of solid waste and grease that may cause problems in the later stages of the process. The pre-treatment process reduces the amount of solids in the waste water. Effective wastewater pre-treatment also reduces the need for oxidation. The pre-treatment is mechanical and consists of sieving and sedimentation units.
