I can’t believe it!! us students are already almost finished Great job you guys!!
This week again was really challenging but there was times that it was fun too!! I think I did are really good job this week on completing the assignments I guess once you get the hang of thing homework becomes no big deal. This week we learned about “Movies” (video), I think this is the week that I have learned more then in any other week. I started this week off by reading and analyzing an article it was about Roger Ebert’s . When I read it then I really did’t understand what the article was talking about (which I did’t like) but as the week wore on there where several other students talking about it so I gained a better Idea of what the article was talking about. Basically, it was just making a comment on some principles that he (Roger Ebert) had found while doing moving studies. Most of his ideas dealt with the positioning of the character and what that meant to people watching. I think this was the driest part of our lesson for this week. After writing a summery about that article I got to pick three videos to watch about movie “perspective”. I picked 3 but really only liked two of them, Tarantino :From Below and Kubrick : One-Point Perspective (See videos Below)
These video’s were very powerful in there presentation, it was presented in such a way as to make the watcher understand the importance of these perspectives and the powerfulness in them. Continuing on I enjoyed analyzing the Ghost clip. I was really surprise that the Ghost clip was even an option, thats are really old movie. At work I asked some people if they had seen the movie and a lot of them said no. I love Ghost the movie a lot I think that Ghost the movie is a timeless classic romance. I learned from doing this analyzation that a lot of what a movie is saying can be missed because movies can be very complex and have a lot of meaning.
Four the Daily Creates this week I think I over did it a little bit. I did 5 instead of 4 (my counting is off I don’t know why). I enjoyed learning how to do line art, I can’t believe I am thinking of pursing it as a hobby after I get out of school. The artist Ryan Seslow even “hearted” my tweet, needless to say I was pretty happy. While on his twitter I found the age old question how to actually say “Gif” (sorry, a little off the subject of this week but just trying to answer my own questions). This tweet says it all:

Here is some of the conversation that I shared with other students over the week. Here is an in depth link to what was shared. One of thing I do badly is generate conversation. I have been working on it and it just seems that people are catching on. Here are some of the post that I have posted this week.
I just worked on mainly commenting about little things that I understood or I thought where a coincidence. I think the blog I got the most out of was is Richard Barnes, I have been struggling all week to understand this thing about Robert Ebert’s principles. They seem to me kind a dry and boring, I think my main problem with these principles is that the really can not be proven. The article was kind of unfulfilling because it seemed to jump around a lot usually articles sate when they were born and go into chronological like that, but not this one.
I just want to say to I have been commenting on other peoples blogs but I have gotten maybe a handful of comments. Even from the teacher she said she commented peoples blogs so they can improve there grade, she never did on mine. I guess that means I am doing far from exceptional on writing ect.
See not much activity and chatting at this end !!
