    ... own reality. The actors use exaggerated gestures to externalise the characters emotions. The audience discovers the characters emotions without being sucked into the world that the characters inhabit. This style of acting was seen as a response to method acting, a style developed by Stanislavsky between 1910 and 1920 and taken up by actors such as Marlon Brando and Dustin Hoffman in modern cinema. German expressionism used the actors as an extension of the sets, making a psychological link between the two. The expressionist movement was clearly an alternative to the mainstream and was similar in many ways to Brechts epic theatre and in that respect can be called alternative cinema. Howe ...

  • Amenhotep Iii - 1,385 words
    Amenhotep Iii Amenhotep IV ascended the throne of Egypt following the death of his father, Amenhotep III. This new ruler proved to be different in almost every way from both his predecessors and the pharaohs who ruled after him. The purpose of this essay is to present the issues of religion, art, architecture, literature and foreign policy in relation to the rule of this unique pharaoh. Newby (1980) states that the most noticeable difference rested in the religious beliefs of Amenhotep IV. In the past, Egypt had worshipped many gods, but under this new pharaohs rule, polytheism would be replaced by a religion that believed in a single god. In one of his first decisions as pharaoh, Amenhotep ...

  • Animal Farm - 758 words
    Animal farm By. George Orwell Characters: The main characters in Animal Farm were Napoleon, Snowball, Boxer, Clover, Jones, and Squealer. Most of the main characters are animals, excluding the only human, Jones. Jones was the owner of Manor Farm. He was constantly drunk. His physical appearance wasnt really described in the novel, but I picture Jones as a tall, slim fellow. He might have a slight pouch (possibly due to his alcohol addiction). He really doesnt seem to care about his animals, and continually continues to abuse them. He thinks its the end of the world whenever something goes wrong. Napoleon is the bad pig of the story. He was a rather large Buckshire boar .He wasnt much of a ta ...

Every day, during the months of June to October 1940, the RAF and Luftwaffe fought in the skies.

    ... unishment was not something I chose to use as part of parenting techniques. Instead I chose to use discipline (on most good parenting days!) Discipline means to teach. It should be a positive way of helping and guiding children to achieve self-control, self-esteem and confidence. Children need discipline for many reasons some of that are protection, to get along with others, and to understand limits. Discipline helps children understand the logical consequences of their actions and learn common rules that everyone must live by. It can help teach a child values that are held by the family and community. "The purpose of discipline, then, is to teach children acceptable behavior so that the ...

  • Gun Control Is Not Answer - 1,612 words

  • Making A Movie - 1,946 words
    Making A Movie Making A Movie Imagine a young child, eye level with a floor full of miniature toys, concentrating intently on building a make-believe world. To the child, the toys are not miniature figures made of plastic or wood. They are real characters with real adventures. The child frames the action, crafting scenes that unfold in a world of imagination. Looking through the lens of a camera as actors bring to life a writer's story, the filmmaker is also peering into a world of imagination. The director, producer, actors, screenwriter, and film editor are all essential players in the journey from concept to finished film. In this remarkable process, thousands of small details-and often h ...

  • Railroads Effect Chicago - 1,194 words
    Railroads Effect Chicago annon The nation network of railroads laid from 1848 through the Civil War, and the steam powered locomotives that traversed them, supplied Chicago with vast new markets, resources, and people who quickly transformed it from a quiet Frontier village into a highly populated industrial powerhouse.

In 1865, it was the first mill in the nation to produce steel rails. This industry was so well suited for Chicago that by 1875, Chicago rolled more rails than any other American city (Berger 157). Like the raw materials shipped by train for steel, grain became a resource that Chicago needed for storing large quantities for use in the livestock industry. The first steam-operated grain elevator was built in 1848 on the lakefront and in just four years, railroads accounted for the majority of grain received in Chicago (Martin 166). By ...
