Secondly, Ethan Hawke and Kenneth Branagh used different choices of music and visuals that were equally effective in creating the ambiance the directors wished to obtain. As well, both movie versions created characters that tried to influence an audience; but, Ethan Hawke’s version introduced its main character so effectively that an audience was captivated by him. These two movie versions had some similarities, but Ethan Hawke’s different style produced a more appealing film. In the end, it was interesting to view the ways in which a director can try to make an old story more appealing to a modern day audience.
But he kept the one element he felt he could not omit. In the novel, Carmen's nude figure possesses an incalculable amount of energy. Hawks wanted that energy to carry the film. Therefore, he employed writers who would help him inject the power of her image into the film in ways the Hays Office would accept. Works Cited Chandler, Raymond.
In a way this is a fabulous idea. Most television shows mask the reality of life, making every conflict easy to solve and finding love is as simple as snapping fingers. These notions that are fed into the minds of Americans are false and unfair. The goal of most TV shows is to create a fantasy world where we can forget all of the hassles of life by escaping into our television sets for an hour. The Simpsons does the exact opposite.
Breaking such social norms would give people a reason to make jokes and watch you with a disapproving eye. Being from an entirely different world, one of the many things that fascinated Buddy was this magical thing called an elevator. If you have seen the movie, then you know that he acts all excited and presses every button in the Empire State Building’s elevator and claims it looks like a christmas tree. The man that is with him in the elevator of course looks at him strangely, because as well all know, Buddy does not follow the social norm. Buddy’s example of breaking a social norm is what I did for this project.
These details that seem small and unimportant are actually imperative in making the movie coherent. The point of view change from the book, to the movie notably weakens the theme of the story; we don’t have the help of details from his thoughts, rather we have to gather the information with subtle hints of Amir’s behaviors since he is retaining all of his secrets. Without Amir narrating his insight throughout the movie, we lose the understanding of the important relationships and characters unraveling before our eyes. This makes the movie confusing and less enjoyable for people who haven't read the book. We must have Amir’s narration in the movie in order to convey the theme of the book in a stronger way.
The reason for the consistency in the films is the publics desire to make an informed choice not and not to go in blind.

For it to be classed as art though it must provoke emotion or thought and show signs of creativity. You also need to think about what film is. Film is a way to tell a story by captureing scenes using a camera and lighting. So where does this connect to art? In my opinion film is considered art, as it has meaning and feeling behind it, all films take thought and time to create and although some films may be created for the purpose of profit or they may lack skill or talent they still deserve to be classed as art as they show someone’s imagination and creativity.
From the description of both of these codes, it seems to only be used as a censorship for movies. A regulation code goes against the political and personal freedom of an artist. Either it be during the Great depression or our era now, movies should not have to adhere to the rules and regulation of a code. Movies are made to express the times in which we live in. No matter if its an outlet to access a different world from our own, movies should function as a source of expression and fantasy.
In Edward Scissorhands, when Peg goes to the mansion, it’s very low key and gives off a suspicious essence when she sees Edward in the corner. She finds Edward in the corner, but since it’s such a low key setting, the audience can’t see him right away. When she decides to take Edward into the real world, Tim Burton does a great job in changing the lighting from low key and ominous to very high key and uplifting. This change in lighting gives the audience a more jubilant feel than the feeling in the mansion. Aside from the different lighting in both, Edward Scissorhands and Charlie and the Chocolate Fac... ... middle of paper ... ...happens with both the lighting and the choice of lighting when the audience sees the town through Charlie’s point of view.
Plays rely heavily on dialogue to communicate emotion to the reader whereas film allows for close visual representation. Filmmakers can explore creativity in adaptation in many ways unavailable and impractical in the theater. In order to maximize the emotional impact of a dramatic work, the filmmaking team can make use of several simple yet effective tools, such as the composition of frames and the variations of the camera shot. In the 1961 film adaptation of Lorraine Hansberry's groundbreaking play A Raisin in the Sun, directed by Daniel Petrie, the filmmakers use these techniques in creative ways to communica... ... middle of paper ... ...stival) starring one of America's most acclaimed actors, Sidney Poitier.
