This is a playlist of music that we may use in our movie they are mostly piano music as that worked best with the story or the scene. It is also music that is sad or inspiring as that is what the character will mostly be doing they will be upset or becoming inspired to move on. There is some happy music due to the beginning of the movie being very happy.
Disney’s takeover of Fox
Recently, Walt Disney has agreed to buy the bulk of 21st Century Fox’s business for $52.4bn (£39bn). The purchase included Fox’s film and television studios, as well at its 39% stake in satellite broadcaster sky. Disney will be scooping up Fox’s movie and television studios, regional sports network and international holding, among other investments. With Disney buying up Fox this adds to Disney’s back catalogue high-grossing films such as the original Star Wars movies, the Marvel superhero pictures, Avatar and Deadpool, as well as TV hits such as Modern Family and The Simpsons.
This expands Disney’s offerings with the FX and National Geographic cable channels, and Fox’s regional sports network in the US. This purchase also covers the global reach of Disney, adding media company Star India and Fox’s interests in Sky plc and Tata Sky to its portfolio.
Net neutrality is the principle that Internet service providers should enable to all content and applications regardless of the source, and without favouring or blocking particular products or websites. Recently, the Federal Communications Commission voted on Thursday to Repeal Obama-era net neutrality rules. The original rules went into effect in 2015 and laid out a regulatory plan that addressed a rapidly changing internet. The rules prohibited the following practices:
Many consumers advocates have argued that if the rules get scrapped. Broadband providers will begin selling the internet in bundles, not unlike how cable television is sold today. Another major concern is that consumers could suffer from pay-to-play deals. Without rules prohibiting paid prioritisation, a fast lane could be occupied by big internet and media companies, as well as affluent households, while everyone else would be left on the slow lane. Some small business owners have also been concerned these issues will affect them, worrying those industry giants could pay to get an edge, and leave them on an unfair playing field.
In our short film we created a letter to be given to Sam, our lead character, nearing the end of the movie. We created the letter but after writing the letter, making the biological parent seem nice and apologetic, we got the biological parent to sign it and we got the social worker to sign it to make the letter look more legit. After this we crumpled up the letter to give the sense that the father has not taken care of the letter showing his lack of caring.
In our movie the concept at the beginning is that Sam, our lead character, is going to give her biological parent a fathers day card this is the card above that says “BEST DAD in THE WORLD”this will be shown at the beginning but will be throw aside when Sam realises that her Biological parent has let her down again. The second card, the one that says “THANK YOU FOR BEING THERE FOR ME”, is given to the Foster parent at the end of the movie making the movie come full circle.
This was our final schedule this was what we made after we asked all of our actors what days they could do. Working around all of the actors we managed to find the days that would work best for everyone and would allow us to be able to film to make the best quality movie we could make.
We went round to all of our actors/actress’s and asked them what days would work best for them. The two main actors were what we needed to most as they would be on camera the most. After the information was gathered we could work on the final schedule.
We had asked mutliple people to do a questionnaire to show us what our audience would be and what they would have wanted. This is an example of one of our questionnaires that was filled in. We could see from the rest of these that music is a very key part to a dramatic movie. We also know that the camera and the angles that it holds is also very important to the audience.
After we had wrote multiple drafts of our script this is our final script that we will be using in our short film. In this final piece we had added some run time to the movie to make sure it is long enough. We also got rid of an argument between the Foster parent and the Foster child as we didn’t see a reason for keeping this when it was not needed. We also gave an extra scene to the bullies to show their connection with the Foster child. This meant that they were not just some random teenagers and were actually shown with some meaning in the film.
When we just started to plan our short film we decided to look into short films that we could take insperation from after looking for a short film that went into the right plot concept we found this short film ReMoved. This is about a young girl and her young brother who get placed into the foster care system. After a lot of different familys she finds a nice home and is soon reunited with her brother. In this movie we also looked at the shots wanting to use certain styles of how they filmed it. But it also showed us what we should avoid doing. As in this short film they seemed to linger on certain shots for to long this made the run time longer then it needed to be. It also made the shots become uneffective as they started to lose their significance. In our short movie we will also use more dialogue to make our character more likeable.
