This is a medium-long shot view from the film Moonrise Kingdom. The shot is shown from about knee height, so it’s not exactly far enough away to be considered a long shot or close enough to be considered a medium shot since it is further away than just her waist and up.
I’ve been waiting all semester to use this video and now I finally can!! This video falls under recombining to change a theme of a movie. In this case, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, which is categorized as “adventure, family, fantasy, drama” is edited and made to look like a teen comedy movie. They edited together some of the more humorous scenes and lines from the movie and added upbeat, fun music to lighten the mood.

Gray scale photos are part of tonal separation, which deals with viewer perception of depth due to brightness of objects. Tone is very important in black and white photos, which help perceive depth and can help direct an audience’s attention (such as the smoke in this photo being the main focus).

Opening credits for Monsters, Inc. Even though this is one of my personal favorite disney movies that I’ve seen multiple times, the opening title sequence explains very well what is to be expected of the movie. With a variety of closet doors shuffling around, opening and closing, and monsters coming through them, the audience can conclude that the same will be done in the movie. The credits are all animated, since it is a childrens’ movie with light-happy jazz music to tell the audience that though it is a movie about monsters, it is not a scary movie.
A world map of stereotypes! “Fat Americans”, “Soviet Russia”, “penguins in Antarctica”, this map shows some of the basic stereotypes of the continents. Though many aren’t 100% true, (not all Americans are fat, etc.) they are still considered “true” to others around the world because of media stereotyping and ourselves for allowing the media to classify us as such.
Gossip Girl is the hit series on the CW based on the novels by Cecily Von Ziegesar. The series got a lot of criticism by parents and the critics themselves for it’s explicit content and sexual advertising for a show aimed at young teenagers, mainly girls. The quotes on the ads are actual quotes from the angry members of the Parental Advocacy Group used in a way that actually draws in more people to the show. Personally I thought the technique they used to turn the criticism into an advertising campaign was brilliant, using stills from scenes in the show along with the criticism to create curiosity in what all the commotion is about the show. The sex used in this campaign worked in their favor and was actually approved by main people.
