The Dance Studio, My Sanctuary - I heard the patter of the water droplets hitting the fibreglass roof as I pirouetted across the polished wooden floorboards, where I felt I was instantly home. The dance studio had become as much a sanctuary to me as the confined classrooms at the local high school. Ever since my mother had died and I had been forced to live with my father; I had simply thrown myself, body and soul into my work and my dancing; my sole reasons for life. 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. In the case of the motion picture industry, the studio system established a market in which the studios owned production facilities, distribution outlets, and theaters. In other words, the studios controlled every level of the marketplace from the top down, from production to exhibition. "Vertical integration" began in the 1910s and inspired the postwar consolidation of the studio system as national distribution companies, such as Paramount merged with production companies, such as Famous Players and Lasky and subsequently began purchasing theater chains....   [tags: Economics] 488 words

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.

During the time the film was released in the 1950s and 60s, audiences started to see the demise of Hollywood as cinema going began to decline and the fierce competition of television almost proved too much for the well established system....   [tags: Film Analysis]

The legal department of Fox TV sent out notices to cease and desist to two webmasters of fan "King Of The Hill" websites. 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. It would seem that for a fan to take the time and spend the money to build a website without any hope of financial reward would be the supreme compliment to a given show....   [tags: Sell Websites Buy Websites] 944 words

Technology - 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]
