As I spun around I shut off all feeling except the chill on my neck from the cool air brushing rapidly past....   [tags: Personal Narrative, Personal Experience] 1242 words

Vertical integration in studio system - Vertical integration in studio system The term "vertical integration" refers to the structure of a marketplace, which is integrated (rather than segregated) at a variety of crucial levels.

How does Sunset Boulevard represent the Hollywood Studio System? - Sunset Boulevard directed by Billy Wilder in 1950 is based on how Norma Desmond, a huge Hollywood star, deals with her fall from fame. The film explores the fantasy world in which Norma is living in and the complex relationship between her and small time writer Joe Gillis, which leads to his death.

Are disaster movies really that popular? - ... For one, there was an economical benefit. If one team was able to do the job for less money than another team, the movie studio saved money. Another aspect was competition. Competition led to innovation in special effects design. Whichever team could produce better effects for less money invested got the contract for that particular movie. The biggest problem in all of this was that there were limits for what could be done cheaply.

Fox Primetime has cracked down on fan sites before, most notably those saluting "The X-Files." It boggles the mind why fan sites pose such a threat to the studios.

Part of TDD with VB - Traditionally, testing has often been an afterthought in software development. Frequently, it was done at—or near—the end of the development cycle. In addition, it was typically the “junior developers” who were tasked with going through the application, testing everything. As a result of these two circumstances, testing often was rushed, incomplete, and led to the release of buggy software to the end users. Into this mix, a number of developers began to use a new method that became known as test-driven development (TDD)....   [tags: Software Development] 959 words

Although originated in the Europe, cartes de visites became prevalent in several countries around the world. “The format was an international standard; for the first time, relatives and friends could exchange portraits, knowing they would find a place in the recipient's family album--whether that album was located in Brooklyn, Berlin or Brazil.” One of the many reasons why cartes de visite became wildly popular in such short time, is that unlike earlier photography processes, such as the daguerreotype and ambrotype, which not only cost greatly more to produce but both also required added protection in order to be sent via mailing system....   [tags: Art History]

MP3 and Music - Digital Recording and Distribution - The Possibilities and Problems of Digital Recording and Distribution      Abstract: This essay deals with the creative possibilities generated by the influx of inexpensive and easy to use digital recording software, hardware, and digital distribution techniques.  One of the main themes of the essay is the problem of upholding creativity and artistic integrity in an unmediated digital environment.    What would you say if I told you that I had bought entire paragraphs of this paper online?  You would probably accuse me of plagiarism and disregard the contents of the essay.  However, many contemporary composers and their listeners consider the practice of buying digital "loops" of music for use in compositions completely acceptable.  Over the past two decades, the implementation of computers in the recording industry has greatly lessened the cost of high quality recording.  This reduction in cost has elicited an extreme change in the music recording process: Instead of spending hours and thousands of dollars in the studio, musicians can now record high quality music in their own homes.  While conferring recording power to the musician should in theory augment the creativity of the recording process, the present state of the digital music community proves that this is not the case.  Economical recording equipment, combined with effortless digital production and distribution, has generated a large digital music community with no legal or quality control standards.  This lack of standards has triggered a depreciation in the quality and originality of the work produced by the music community.    The decreased cost and increased independence of digital music production and distribution allows greater creative flexibility for musicians.  Historically, one could only record high quality audio in large recording studios at hourly rates, which were prohibitively high for amateur musicians to afford.  However, modern technology has made it possible to package many of the features of large recording studios into small digital recording consoles, which amateur musicians can afford.  The price of one of these consoles, the Tascam Digital Portastudio 788, at Musiciansfriend.com, is $899.99 [1].  This console, although seemingly expensive, is much more cost-effective than paying for an entire studio, and can achieve nearly the same results.  The real benefit of a digital recording console, however, is the creative control it bestows upon musicians.  Instead of having a producer who dictates how the recording should sound, the musician becomes the producer, giving him complete control over all aspects of the composition.  Additionally, because of the cost of studio recording, a musician's time in the studio is usually limited.  However, with a personal digital recording console, one can freely experiment with new ideas without time constraints.  While this unmediated recording environment theoretically provides an artist with unlimited creative flexibility, it also allows for detrimental misuse in the form of non-original composition, which can negate the creative possibilities of this new artistic process....   [tags: Exploratory Essays Research Papers]
