On Capturing The Ineffable: A Moment From Experimental Film "59.10", Henry Leslie Foster II 2017 Southern Adventist University

On Capturing The Ineffable: A Moment From Experimental Film "59.10", Henry Leslie Foster Ii

The STEAM Journal

This artwork is a still from “59,” an experimental film installation I created with the following restrictions: I had to direct eleven 59-second films in eleven months with eleven collaborating artists, none of whom could be cis men.In the resulting project, we used film and those eleven short moments to capture our unique, fragile experiences. We explored everything from the way in which facets of personality drift in and out of the subconscious to the beautiful, mercurial nature of gender.


The Suppression Of Satirizing Belgian Community Difficulties In Flemish Cinema And The Film Adaptation Of Will-O'-The Wisp, Gertjan Willems 2017 Ghent University

The Suppression Of Satirizing Belgian Community Difficulties In Flemish Cinema And The Film Adaptation Of Will-O'-The Wisp, Gertjan Willems

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In his article "The Suppression of Satirizing Belgian Community Difficulties in Flemish Cinema and the Film Adaptation of Will-O'-the Wisp" Gertjan Willems analyzes two film projects of Frans Buyens. In 1970, Buyens received a positive funding recommendation for Top-Hit Girl, a satire about community difficulties in Belgium. However, Minister of Culture Frans van Mechelen refused to support the project because it conflicted with his pro-Flemish views. The minister successfully swept this controversial decision under the rug by offering Buyens the option to trade his socially critical project for a film adaptation of Willem Elsschot's novel Will-O'-the Wisp ...

A Review Of The Builders Association's Elements Of Oz, Sean Bartley 2017 Florida State University

A Review Of The Builders Association's Elements Of Oz, Sean Bartley

PARtake: The Journal of Performance as Research

This performance review of Elements of OZ, after describing the interactions between the production’s onstage action, recorded and livestreamed sequences, and innovative smartphone app, proposes that the production fundamentally explores process rather than artistic product: the making of the original MGM film, the percolation of the film throughout popular culture, and The Builders Association’s own unique method of live reenactment and reconceptualization


Things We Dare Not See: Media Revisions Of Incestuous Relationships, Mattheus M. Oliveira 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Things We Dare Not See: Media Revisions Of Incestuous Relationships, Mattheus M. Oliveira

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

Nowadays we can see a steadily growing acceptance of queer relationships in our films and novels, whether they are romance films or violent war movies. What we don’t get to see are examples of incestuous relationships that are consensual and harmless. For example, when Luke and Leia accidentally share some romantic feelings in Star Wars, that bond is suppressed. We don’t get an acknowledgment of a brother and sister’s emotional support in the movie adaptation of V.C Andrews’ Flowers in the Attic. This erasure stems from a long history of cultural and legal censorship of incest ...

Hyper Reality, 2017 Vocational Training Council

Hyper Reality

SIGNED: The Magazine of The Hong Kong Design Institute

Advancements in camera technology have the potential to break down the barriers between actors and their audience, if not breaking the fourth wall, at least peering over the top of it. But does such new technology really benefit storytelling, or is it just spectacle for its own sake?


My Giants, Teodora Altomare 2017 City University of New York (CUNY)

My Giants, Teodora Altomare

School of Arts & Sciences Theses

My Giants is a thirty minute documentary about two journeys. During the first, in 2015, the filmmaker documented the story of Xylella fastidiosa, a bacteria responsible for the loss of many thousand-year-old olive trees in the Italian region of Puglia. During the second visit, in 2016, she witnessed the illness of her father.

By weaving together the two stories, My Giants is a snapshot of a transitional moment in the filmmaker’s life, a moment when illness became an opportunity to reconnect with her roots.

Basic Knowledge Training For Vfx Production Assistants And Coordinators, Sharon Anne Roberts

Instructional Design Capstones Collection

Visual Effects (VFX) is a part of the film-making process that takes place during the broader phase of film-making known as post-production.

At present, there is no formalized training available for production individuals and much of the required learning is done on the job. This projects explores a basic training course for individuals looking to increase their basic knowledge of VFX production. Grounded in industry research conducted by the author ...

The Severity And Lack Of Awareness Of Dermatomyositis, Alexander Lorenzo Perez Herrera 2017 Dominican University of California

The Severity And Lack Of Awareness Of Dermatomyositis, Alexander Lorenzo Perez Herrera

Senior Theses and Capstone Projects

Dermatomyositis is a rare autoimmune disease that affects a very small percentage of the population, close to 10 cases per million, according to the National Organization of Rare Disorders (NORD). The amount of men that are diagnosed with this disease are even smaller. However, hardly anyone knows what Dermatomyositis is, let alone what its side effects are. The purpose of this research paper is to exploit the severity of Dermatomyositis for those who are unaware of its existence, characteristics and significance within the health community. In doing so, I hope to create awareness throughout society by also telling my father ...


Blade Runner And The Divine Menace, Alexander W. Pickens 2017 James Madison University

Blade Runner And The Divine Menace, Alexander W. Pickens

MAD-RUSH Undergraduate Research Conference

Following the decline of Christianity in mainstream Western culture, a void rose in the moral and societal code. Those writers that emerged presented alternate visions that worked their way into the literature of the 20th century. Karl Marx's interpretation of the structure of labor in capitalism presented a new societal hierarchy whose finer points have been worked out in the complex film Blade Runner. This dystopian nightmare, in which a Marxist interpretation of current society bogged down by the ennui of capitalist accumulation is confronted, describes a new religious order based upon this economic theory. Central to this reimagining ...


Secret And Divine Signs: A Cinematic Ode To The Art Of Cruising, Terrence T. Hunt 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Secret And Divine Signs: A Cinematic Ode To The Art Of Cruising, Terrence T. Hunt

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

Cruising is a practice that connects people looking for casual sex through a series of gestures, behaviors and codes that signal one’s sexual orientation and interest. These cruising behaviors and codes are changing because of advances in technology, because of cruising’s sudden exposure to the wider community through media, and evolving cultural values that no longer demand gay sex be kept secret. Cruising is in the public consciousness like never before. This project, a short film entitled Secret and Divine Signs: A Cinematic Ode to the Art of Cruising, investigates, records and pays homage to the cultural ...

My honors project focused around the elimination of the Akron baseball program in the summer of 2015. I produced, directed and edited this project. The potential audience for this project is anyone in Northeast Ohio with some knowledge on the University of Akron and their sports teams.

Creative Advertising Portfolio, Hayley E. Sunderman 2017 James Madison University

Creative Advertising Portfolio, Hayley E. Sunderman

Senior Honors Projects, 2010-current

Since I was a young child, all I wanted was to draw and write. I would compose entire binders of my artwork, as well as Microsoft Word documents of the beginnings of mystery novels. As I grew older, I let my self-doubt take over and I convinced myself that I was not talented enough to pursue any type of creative career path. I came into college as a Marketing major knowing that my future career options would be fairly vast. During my junior year, I realized my strong desire to work in creative advertising. Graphic design, copywriting, photography, videography, and ...


The Monstrous Self: Negotiating The Boundary Of The Abject, Katya Yakubov 2017 Virginia Commonwealth University

The Monstrous Self: Negotiating The Boundary Of The Abject, Katya Yakubov

Theses and Dissertations

Through the lens of the horror film and the fairy tale, this thesis explores the notion of the grotesque as a boundary phenomenon—a negotiation of what is self and what is other. As such, it locates the function that the monstrous and the grotesque have in the formation of a personal and social identity. In asking why we take pleasure in the perverse, I explore how permutations of guilt, victimhood, and desire can be actively rewritten, in order to construct a stable sense of self.
