My Fair-ly Analyzed Post

Monday, July 30th, 2012

The movie that I decided to critiqued is My Fair Lady, it is a film made in 1964 staring Audrey Hepburn as Eliza Doolittle (one of my favorite actresses), and Rex Harrison as Professor Henry Higgins. My Fair Lady is a drama, family and musical.  After reading  Roger Ebert’s article “How to Read a Movie”  I’ve concluded that he was right in his analysis of films. In the this scene you will notice that the camera starts off on the main females character, who is an absolutely lovely person, then it begans to rotates left to a least favoribe person. Which Ebert says “in simplistic terms: Right is more positive, left more negative. Movement to the right seems more favorable; to the left, less so.”

In this scene you will see what Ebert was talking about when he said, “Movement is dominant over things that are still.”

Over all in my opinion this movie was very well made. I am not a fan of musicals, but after seeing this movie when I was a child, I would watch it anytime, anywhere. The relation between the two characters is very funny, which gives the movie a comic edge, but we all know there can not be a movie involving a male and female role without a touch of drama. Also, it is a very family friendly movie, because it was made in the time where family friendly meant family friendly.

My Camp Story

Monday, July 30th, 2012

What you are about to see is based on a true story.
It was Jasmine’s first time at camp, so she really didn’t know what to expect. Arriving at camp seemed normal enough, but she noticed a few of the counselors were acting a bit strange, but her counselor seemed to be the only normal one, with a welcoming message (I guess she knew what her occupation was).

So she thought to herself about the rest of them, “Oh well they are probably as unwilling as I am to be here.” Jasmine’s first few weeks at camp were fun. She even started her camping duties early. 

Which made camp a little bit better. However Jasmine started noticing things disappearing from her suitcase.

Jasmine was thinking to herself that these are weird things to steal, but to each their own. Camp seemed pretty fun. It was still a lot for a city girl to take in, and on top of that she and nature have not been the best of friends, with that being said she stilled tried to embrace it. With her tooth brush, hair brush and socks missing, she decided to just embrace the wild look while at camp.

Which proved to be very cost efficient. It was week 5 at camp when Jasmine noticed Alan’s inability to remember somethings. So she decided to retrace his steps. After a few days of playing super sleuth, she realized that he had been spending time near shed 4, which Jasmine was told not go near. The curiosity became to much to handle where Jasmine found herself spying on Shed 4. Where she noticed Marco the grounds keeper, keeping tabs on her. She then confronted him, asking him why he was following her around. And he replied, “This land is rightfully my family’s, be careful where you poke your nose, you know what they say about curiosity and the cat.

Jasmine gave up the hunt for  few days, and decided to try to focus back on camp, but all these questions kept circling her mind….. “Why would they have camp if areas where off limits? Why are camp leaders suffering from memory loss and why are counselors acting strange. No matter who she followed, everything she seemed to uncover lead back to shed #4. So on Friday the 13th of July, she decided to take matters into her own hands and solve the mysterious occurances happening all around camp herself.

Upon entering  the shed, Jasmine had to fight off every attack from her conscious telling her to flea, but she ignored it. Jasmine entered into the shed, just to have the door slam being her. All of a sudden this noise filled the air, and made the hairs on the back of her neck stand on edge.

Jasmine then ran towards the door, bursting threw it, in a panic trying to get back to the safety of her bunk house.

After getting back to her Bunk House Jasmine spoke of what occurred to no one. Hoping that nobody was aware of what she did, anxiously awaiting for camp to be over, and praying that her secret remained just that, a secret.

Who’s Your Superhero?

Monday, July 30th, 2012

For my very first assignment creation I decided to be about superheros. The assignement is to upload apiture of your favorite superhero and tell why in 2-5 sentences. I choose (you guessed it) Cat Woman!!!!

The reason that I choose Cat Woman, is because she is super sassy. She also has a little bit of villain in her. It’s like shes a good guy without being too good, and I love it. Plus her costume is awesome and she gets to hang out with Batman. I feel like she was my role model when I was little, I had my Cat woman figurines and everything!

Weekly Letter 6 and 7

Monday, July 30th, 2012

Hey mom and dad, it has come to my attention that my letters may have gotten lost in the mail. So let me tell you a bit about those weeks. During my sixth week of camp, we dabbled in a lot of audio this week, as far as making sound clips. Also, another thing that we did this week was listen to the radio. Listening to the radio was pretty awesome!! However the most important part about it was making my own radio segment with my Bunk House. And although we lost power, we still got it done, and I think we were awesome!!!!!!!

During week 7 there was a lot to do. We had to write a blog post about movie in comparison to Robert Ebert’s “How to Read a Movie.” I actually learned a lot. For that assignment I chose to do it on “My Fair Lady” which is one of my favorite movies of all time.Also, we had a few daily created and a few video assignment’s, but you will see all of that when I show you my camp scrapbook.  It is getting late and I cannot wait to get home.

The Final Letter Home!!!!

Camp has finally come to an end :( although I am sad to go, I can’t wait to be at home in my own bed :) I can not believe how fast 10 weeks goes by, it only feels like yesterday that I was packing. I am truly sad to see everyone go. I am happy that I came, and I am glad that I made a few friends. I am proud to say that my VERY FIRST camp experience was a fun one. It was a great experience, and I am happy I came. I’ve included a fair well video, stay tuned to the very end.. Let’s see if you catch the surprise!!!!

Free Spirited Horse

Friday, July 27th, 2012

For today’s Daily Create assignment, the task was to take a photograph of an animal that you think represents your personality. I choose a horse. I feel as if a horse represents my personality because they are strong, stand tall and are free spirited.  I feel a certain kinship with them. I think of myself as strong person, maybe a little to strong at times. And I most certainly consider myself a free spirit, I don’t feel restrained and constricted by boundaries, I just want to run. But the most important trait that I feel we have in common is that we stand tall, no  matter how many times I get knocked down in life… I will get back up. they push threw and strive and embrace their strength and they can carry a lot of weight on their back without breaking.


Blind Folded Flower

Friday, July 27th, 2012

For one of my last Daily Create assignments the task was to draw a picture of a flower with your eyes closed. So I did! I grabbed a piece of paper and a sharpie and had at it. For me, it was just drawing a bunch of circles with a line, with a touch of guesstimating where I was on the page in proximity to where I started. I am actually surprised that it came out looking like an actual flower. I think I draw a lot better with my eyes closed than I do when they are opened. With that being said, I think that I should stick to that method. Isn’t it purdy?
