- At First Glance The Wizard Of Oz Seems To Be A Simple Childrens Story, A Fairytale Of Sorts Further Examination However Revea - 834 words
At first glance The Wizard of Oz seems to be a simple childrens story, a fairytale of sorts. Further examination however reveals that there is much more to this story. The movie, which is based on the book The Wonderful World of Oz by Lyman Frank Baum, contains many intriguing symbols. Included among these symbols are the Wicked Witch of the East, the Munchkins, the Wizard, the ruby (silver) slippers and more. Baum chose these symbols to create an allegory of the populist movement of the late 19th century. The most obvious symbol is perhaps the most important. Baum uses the Land of Oz to represent the United States. We can see that the land of the Munchkins represents the East Coast, as ther ...

- The Development Of Dorothythe Movie The Wizard Of Oz Opens On A Farm In Kansas The Lead Character Is A Twelveyearold Girl Nam - 1,226 words
The Development of DorothyThe movie "The Wizard of Oz" opens on a farm in Kansas. The lead character is a twelve-year-old girl named Dorothy. Dorothy exists in a world limited by aged beliefs and fears, which make up a great part of her reality. In Kansas, Dorothy is a twelve-year-old girl, with twelve-year-old needs and emotions. I feel that the movie is a device by which we can analyze Dorothy in all states of mind, her conscious, pre-conscious, and unconscious. I believe that Sigmund Freuds principles on the structure of personality and dreaming will aid in understanding Dorothys growth, wants, and needs. Dorothy in her conscious state struggles to be heard and understood. She is distress ...

- Courage - 352 words
Courage By Courage Courage by Will McDonald Courage. Sounds kind of neat, doesn't it? Webster's New Collegiate Unabridged Dictionary defines courage... but that doesn't matter. To me, courage is having the power to stand up to something you fear, when you know you have to do it. Trying to make yourself a better person against all odds could be considered courage. Courage could be doing what is right for the group even when you are scared. Anyway you define courge, one thing remains the same: it is inside all of us. In the timeless classic To Kill a Mockingbird , Mrs. Dubose is an old, mean lady who apears not to like anything in life anymore. Upon further reading, we find that she is a morph ...

- Film Production - 1,797 words
Film Production In the period previous to the 1930's, the predominant form of filmmaking was that of the crank camera. This is not to say that motor-driven cameras were not possible. However, the motors to advance the film were so large that they were simply too cumbersome to be effective. Thus, it was the cameraman himself who would crank the film at a steady rate to expose the frames. When it came to showing the film, on the other hand, motor driven projectors were quite convenient, and by the 1920's a standard 24 frames per second was established for projecting films. Filming, however, remained unstandardized due to the inherent variation in recording speeds, since it depended directly on ...

- I Have Had Many Theaterrelated Experiences Every Chapter That I Have Read In My Theater Book Has Allowed Me To Make A Connect - 1,356 words
I have had many theater-related experiences. Every chapter that I have read in my theater book has allowed me to make a connection to my past experiences with theater performances. I have also seen many plays and could relate to things an audience sees by reading the book. My first theater experience ever is when I was in the Nutcracker. We did a ballet performance for this play. I was very young when I did this, but I remember my instructor always saying that we must make contact with our audience through movements. Since in ballet you can not talk, you have to express the emotions that you are feeling to the audience through movement. This was very difficult. I must say that acting with wo ...

Mount Everest The speakers words silenced the audience as he began, On the night of May 10, 1996 a blizzard swept over Mount Everest, striking more than thirty mountain climbers with heavy snow, subzero temperatures, and unbelievably strong winds. In the next twenty-four hours, eight of the climbers, including three professional guides were dead. This night would become the most ill fated attempt ever to summit Mount Everest. Among these climbers was a 49-year old Dallas pathologist and an amateur climber, Dr. Beck Weathers, who was left to die in the icy storm 300 yards from his camp.

- Pink Floyd - 1,117 words
... e previously mentioned song (Povey 143). It is necessary to study the lyrics from the song to understand it. Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun. Shine on you crazy diamond. Now there's a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky. Shine on you crazy diamond. You were caught on the crossfire of childhood and stardom, blown on the steel breeze. It is up to the mind whether or not these lyrics make references to Syd Barrett. While Pink Floyd was an excellent band, it had some following that were not incredibly good for their image. Once such instance points to a Los Angeles show in 1977, in which over 500 people were arrested for the use or possession of marijuana. The ...

- The Dvd Revolution - 1,087 words
The DVD Revolution The DVD Revolution Specific Purpose: To inform my audience about the features and advantages of DVD video. Central Idea: The DVD video format has superior audio and visual quality to VHS, as well as more special features, which is why it should eventually occupy the place of the VCR in American households. Introduction Id like to start things out by taking a survey. How many of you remember having a CD player in your house fifteen years ago? Not very many of you, I see. Of course, we all have CD players now. It took a little over a decade and some major price drops, but eventually we all threw out our old vinyl and cassettes and opted for the excellent sound quality and co ...

- The Old Religion: Why Are They Pagans - 667 words
The Old Religion: Why Are They Pagans? The Old Religion An excerpt from the Malleus Maleficarum written by Heinrich Kramer and James Sprenger reads, "Witches are so called on account of the blackness of their guilt, that is to say their deeds are more evil than those of any other malefactors. They stir up and confound the elements by the aid of the devil and arouse terrible hailstorms and tempests. They distract the minds of men driving them to madness, insane hatred, and inordinate lusts. By the terrible influence of their spells alone as it were by a draught of poison they can destroy life." The mere mention of the words witch or witchcraft automatically bring to mind either the green skin ...
