Unfortunately, this cold is really hanging on…
Here are some jobs for you to do today, please and thank you.
Think about the concept of HYPER REALITY.
- Why would audiences want to see HYPER REALITY? What do we, the audience, ‘get out of it’?
- EXTRA TRICKY QUESTION: Does that say something about human nature? What is it?
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.
Think about SPECIAL EFFECTS. Now try to make the connection to the TOP 10 ALL-TIME MONEY-MAKING MOVIES.
- How many special effects are in these movies: none, a little, some, a lot, or tons? Why do you think that is?
- STUMPER QUESTION: Again, what does that say about us as human beings or our society in general?
CHALLENGE QUESTION: Think of SILVER CITY cinema. Can you answer the following questions about that cinema:
- What food services do they provide in Silver City? (Include traditional and non-traditional movie snacks.)
- What typical services does a movie theatre provide for us, the audience?
- 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.)
