    Daniel H. Wild’s ‘ Writing Images’ serves the purpose to elaborate on writing from a students point of view so that teachers may better understand what their pupils must go through during their writing process. “Revision, the act of seeing again and anew and to subsequently integrate ones insights into (re)writing might serve as a […]

  • I enjoyed Citizen Kane as well. It was unique and a good movie though not the greatest/best i’ve seen. The different perspectives you mentioned about people who were closely associated with Kane and how they differed i felt was important. By showing different ways he acted we saw the man he was in business and […]

  • brad commented on the post, Why Poverty?, on the site maya's blog 6 years, 9 months ago

    The scene you chose was peculiar. But after reading your analysis i understand why you chose this scene. The scene conveys a great understanding of the film as it leads the film to a sense of unexpectancy. As Marlion is startled in this scene, the audience is startled in every scene after it. With a […]

  • I like your review of this film but I took it in a different direction. I thought this was a great example of a “VARIATION” of a gangster film. Instead of hard hitting continuos action, this movie took a light hearted approach to the romance between Bonnie and Clyde while inserting shots of happy times […]

    I loved the way you compared the kids rolling down the hill to The Barrows Gang continuing down a path of injustice the way in which they would be punished by society. It was something I overlooked as merely a life in a different time in a different place for Bonnie and Clyde as a […]

  • The scene you chose was interesting for your film analysis. The shot by shot analysis explained who Norman Bates really was and how his disturbed state led to the death of Marion. Without this scene, the whole story would of been confusing to say the least and perhaps would have never been revived in the […]

    I enjoyed this film alot, just as mentioned above the ending wasn’t what I had expected it to be but then again it did follow the style of the film. The couples love was the burning center piece of the entire film and couldn’t be extinguished in an ordinary fashion.

  • brad wrote a new post, Psycho, on the site Media Studies 6 years, 9 months ago

    Psycho, a film done in 1960 and directed by Alfred Hitchcock captivates the mind. Though in present times, more psychological thrillers are being panned out, it is close to impossible to imagine how this piece was perceived in that decade to be nothing less that shear genius. Psycho is a film about a demented killer […]

  • Written on the Wind, a 1956 piece directed by Douglas Sirk I found to be a bit mellow dramatic. Since the the lead rolls, Marylee and Kyle Hadley seem too out of touch with reality. Though wealth has a way of spoiling the mind when not fully appreciated of moderately given, the sibling seem oblivious […]

  • brad wrote a new post, The Lady Eve, on the site Media Studies 6 years, 9 months ago

    The Lady Eve, a 1941 film directed by Preston Sturges surely grabbed my interest. A witty love story with a fine lesson, I was captured by the comedy and stupidity of mistakes often made in love. The leading lady Barbara Stanwyck plays Jean Harrington an expert con artist who falls in love with the leading […]

  • brad wrote a new post, Citizen Kane, on the site Media Studies 6 years, 9 months ago

    A movie which was historic in its own right was Citizen Kane directed by Orson Welles. Welles does an exceptional job creating a glamorous but dark and intriguing piece which focuses on Charles Foster Kane, a newspaper mogul who dipped his fingers into differing aspects of many interests he had in his life. Kane was […]

  • brad wrote a new post, Film Analysis #2, on the site Media Studies 6 years, 9 months ago

    The legendary “Bonnie and Clyde” 1967 film was shot and directed by Arthur Penn. This film was reminiscent of an actual duo of outlaws, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow during the great depression. The films adaption had some disputes with those who were depicted and even encouraged lawsuits against the movie, defamation of character being […]

  • brad commented on the post, Kino-Pravda freewrite, on the site Reading Film 6 years, 9 months ago

    The most Vertovian film, I personally felt was Russels. It was direct and to the point, the theme/message was clearly established and followed an ends to the mean. I felt as if it was he added his own interpretation while keeping with the traditional Vertovian ideas. The favorite part of my video was the intro, […]

    Don’t include too much fluff, get to the point and don’t take a whole essay to discuss things which have nothing to do with the art work.
    Capture the reader with each sentence/paragraph.
    make sure each sentence flows into the other, each paragraph flows into the other.

  • brad commented on the post, Vertov III, on the site Reading Film 6 years, 10 months ago

    Vertov claims that frames put together must be organized thematically as a whole in order to show relevant truth. Throughout the film clip Vertov shows a continuous stream of short clip edits, each preceded by a train shot to show the film moving forward. By showing a continuous stream of shots, Vertov is able to […]

  • brad commented on the post, Vertov III, on the site Reading Film 6 years, 10 months ago

    There is a steady subject line throughout the film. Things are consistent in the way they are viewed, everything very natural and uninhibited. Everyday norms carried out, a relentless flow from one thing to the next. Quick edits such as people carrying out activities then to the train which is consistent throughout. Camera lens picks […]
