Unfortunately, this cold is really hanging on…

Here are some jobs for you to do today, please and thank you.

JOB #1:

Think about the concept of HYPER REALITY.

  1. Why would audiences want to see HYPER REALITY? What do we, the audience, ‘get out of it’?
  2. EXTRA TRICKY QUESTION: Does  that say something about human nature? What is it?

JOB #2:

Go to Rotten Tomatoes and find and watch some trailers of action movies that have come out recently or are coming out in the future. Your challenge is to find 5 examples of HYPER REALITY.

JOB #3:

Think about SPECIAL EFFECTS. Now try to make the connection to the TOP 10 ALL-TIME MONEY-MAKING MOVIES.

  1. How many special effects are in these movies: none, a little, some, a lot, or tons? Why do you think that is?
  2. STUMPER QUESTION: Again, what does that say about us as human beings or our society in general?

JOB #4:

CHALLENGE QUESTION: Think of SILVER CITY cinema. Can you answer the following questions about that cinema:

  1. What food services do they provide in Silver City? (Include traditional and non-traditional movie snacks.)
  2. What typical services does a movie theatre provide for us, the audience?
  3. How does Silver City go BEYOND the usual services to make it a unique movie-going experience? (Think of the seats, the ceilings, the number of employees, etc.)
