CONSIDER THE CONTENT FROM PAGES 180 TO THE END What chains of Cause & Effect do

CONSIDER THE CONTENT FROM PAGES 180 TO THE END
What chains of Cause & Effect do you see operating?
Trace the stories of three characters that exist within this narrative:
Katherine Johnson; Dorothy Vaughan; and Mary Jackson
Is each one an individual story? Do their stories all center on thematic issues and not just the circumstances of working in the nation’s chief aeronautical lab?
Now that you are done with the book, also consider, do the stories of those three characters stand as center post of the total story? Or do they all support the central meanings of the story, something more abstract?

This paper is a reflection on the films “The Searchers (1954)” and “Django: Unchained (2012)”.
I will include a PDF with guidelines. Please keep in mind that this is a reflection assignment which means there is no single way to go about it, no exact rubric. The point is to encourage you to explore your own ideas about the film in relation to the lecture, and express your own opinion about what you think, and how and why you think that way about it.
There are questions to refer to on the PDF attached.

Do you have a clear sense of the story being told to you, looking back on another time with a more modern outlook? Is the perspective of the storytelling consistent? Do you have a sense of an explicit or implied narrator?
Do you get lots of information in summary? Are you provided with conclusions and clear understandings of how to judge the events and people involved?

Purpose
In the reading, Jon Lewis provides an analysis of how visual editing and soundtrack work together to provide a memorable effect in the baptism sequence in The Godfather. Our discussion for this Module focuses on how editing and sound in Raging Bull masterfully conveys the tragic life of boxer Jake La Motta.

Classmate Tiffany’s Post:
The scene I choose from the movie ranging bull is the scene at 25:22. The reason I choose this scene is because it is where the two main protagonists are meeting and I liked the scene and how I can analyze it more. In the scene we can see, that Jake meeting Vickie. The scenes shot is interesting because it kinda hints at a barrier behind the two. Jake is married and Vickie is a minor who seems to be classier than Jake is, it can hint at the wealth and or societal gap between both parties. The reason I found the shot and camera angle to be an editing style is because it showcases two different cameras having to be possibly used. One camera is outside on the street and one is on the inside in the swimming pool area. The editing as well can manipulate the sound of the scene, In some parts you could hear what was being said but in some parts you could not, which I think adds to the suspense and hesitancy of the scene, especially on Vickies part. As the scene went on, the jump cuts and such only added to the movie and can give the viewers a sense of their own interpretation on how to see where the movie will go. For example, when Vickie mentions that she likes Jack’s car, she is then seen in the front passenger seat riding down New York with him. That scene as well can be interpreted as, there is a line down the middle in the car on the windshield, it can be a call back to the couples age gap and how they come from different societal points in the film. These elements identify as what Martin Scorsese’s style is to do some jump cuts and the slow motions and freeze frames which we can see later on in the film.

However, the shot does show the viewer that phyllis is the one with the power.

PLEASE READ EVERYTHING CAREFULLY!
Purpose
Our discussion for this Module focuses on auteurism, the idea that a single person (or group) has authorship over the production of a film. In Classic Hollywood, auteurism is almost exclusively associated with male directors. We turn our attention to the only female director working in 1950s Hollywood: Ida Lupino. What distinguishes her authorial style?

Ethan’s Post: The scene I chose to analyze happens at 31:17 in the film. I chose this scene because it stands out from many of the other scenes. This scene is taken from a low angle whereas many of the scenes in the movie are from chest height or head height. This scene is also significant in terms of the story because Phyllis says that she would want to remain as strangers to Harrison. This was his cue to leave her, but he continues to pursue her and completely changes his life for the worse because of his actions after this scene. The dialogue in this scene is more significant than the actual shot. However, the shot does show the viewer that Phyllis is the one with the power. She looks down on Harrison and foreshadows that she will have some sort of control over him.
Response Post EXAMPLE: Hey Tiffany,
I agree with you that the introduction to the movie was a bit jarring at first. The beginning of the movie is certainly light-hearted in terms of the story and music. The scene itself is also very bright, which you pointed out. This is appropriate since the wife is very hopeful that they will get their child from Mr. Jordan. The scene you chose is very interesting to watch again after knowing that the husband has another family. By rewatching this scene, you can really see that Harrison looks a bit nervous like he is hiding something.
In The Bigamist, I noticed that Lupino chooses to change camera angles very frequently within scenes. When there are scenes with two people talking, the camera cuts between both people’s faces often. Shots in the movie also tend to be at either chest height or head height. The characters are very often centered on the screen and take up a large portion of the screen space. A trope I see repeated throughout the film is how the main character, Harrison, consistently picks the wrong choices and digs himself into a deeper hole with each choice he makes.
I think what designates a filmmaker as an auteur is consistency with their shots. If someone can watch a movie and pick out the patterns the scenes follow and link it to a person, then the movie was created by an auteur. The shots do not have to be beautiful, but I believe that they have to be structured for the creator to be called an auteur.

Please limit your posts to no more than 400 words and 1-2 examples to give others a chance to write about key scenes/shots. I suggest that you resize your screenshots and images to ‘Large’ in the ‘Image Options.’ The ‘Image Options’ tag appears above or below an image when you click on it while editing in the Rich Content Editor.

As you watch and/or review The Bigamist, take notes on formal and thematic patterns. Are certain kinds of shots or editing patterns repeated? What about how Lupino frames characters or objects in the frame? Are there certain concepts, themes, or tropes that you see repeated throughout the film? Please choose one shot/scene from The Bigamist and embed a screenshot(s) or YouTube clip into your post. Let the class know the significance of this scene or shot in relation to locating Lupino as an auteur. You may also disagree that she is an auteur, but please keep the conversation in line with what Lewis outlines in the reading. A director need not have an overwhelming stylistic presence in order to be considered an auteur (e.g. Hawks, Wilder). Sometimes other narrative elements emerge. If you are feeling ambitious, watch another film by Lupino or select clips from YouTube or Vimeo of other Lupino films for comparison. What do you think designates a filmmaker as an auteur?
