Cinema and language:

“Cinematic language is different rather than “district”- from what language system, a langue would be but take place” by Stephen Heath

This book is about a research on TV news coverage in Bad news. Although reporters always run and always hope to be the first to get certain news in the society but when they got the news, would the story still be the same when they report it? The news might become bias on one side or reporters may exaggerate the story so they can gain more audience to read or watch their news. This book has shown that what newspaper said may not reliable which proved in my research and group project that media may changed or bias on people on benefits system and homosexuality.

From this journal, they have done a research on which newspapers have been bias on politics. And the result has shown that most newspaper have been exaggerate and changed their choice of words. Since these newspapers have loads of reader, they have affected the readers’ thoughts and decisions. Again this proved that the media might have changed readers’ point of view without notice. They are controlling readers’ thought!

Case study:

Film-Lilting- Break through the language problem, use facial expression and action to affect audience emotions

Animation-Different culture- Japan and Europe

 

Reflection on my film process:

 

-In the project, I have animated some of the visual scenes.

-Everything have been planned well and we all trying to meet our deadline that we set for ourselves.

-Getting and controlling the balance is the challenge in this project. Things that we animated cannot be too literal but not too crazy at the same time as well.
