Georgia Flu Outbreak: A Scene Analysis

Improved Essays
I would start off the scene with an high angle shot. This angle places importance on the setting, and I want the viewers to focus on the snow. I want them to focus on the fact that it is snowing which makes the world seem to slow. Cars are gradually coming to a stop because the snow is making it difficult to drive. Most people are tucked away inside their homes, so Jeevan is the only one on the sidewalk. From this angle, you will see Jeevan board the streetcar and it start to drive towards his brother’s condo. There will be soft calming music playing in the background, so people do not expect the terror that is about to come. There is always a calm before the storm.
The transition will be brought on by the music being cut off because of

This scene contains the last few minutes of peace before we find out the Georgia Flu outbreak is about to kill 99% of the population. This book is not intended to be an action film, but I want this scene to come across as if it was. When compared to the rest of the movie, this scene is thrilling and action packed while the rest are more dramatic. It shows the falling of the population as we get snippets from the hospital. It also sets for when the movie flashes twenty years in the future that Jeevan actions are why he is still alive twenty years later. I am cutting Jeevan’s thoughts entirely because I think the shots and emotion shown on the character’s face will be able to get my point across. It also allows me to take emphasis off of Laura. While Jeevan keeps thinking about her in this chapter, I do think she is important to the storyline as a whole. This scene will play a central role in the movie as it will be the last scene in the beginning before we flash to the future. The scenes before this will be of Arthur’s death at the theater. When this scene ends, it will change to twenty years later where we are following the Traveling Symphony

The stench of human breath would give me some hope at this point. I knew my skis were not going to come out of snow. Then, I saw a Ski Patrol Officer on the ski lift stare with intrigue at me.…

    “As of Aug. 29 about 1000 cases of measles have occurred in the U.S. in 2014: the largest outbreak in 20 yrs.—in a country that the Center for Disease Control and Prevention declared measles free in 2000” (Offit A1). This so happens to be a year prior to the published article by Dr. Wakefield in regards to the correlation between MMR vaccine and autism. Regrettably many parents were brainwashed into thinking that vaccines risk our lives, and chose to not have their babies vaccinated. Now we 're dealing with an even bigger problem, diseases that were once wiped out from vaccines are now making a comeback. Jo Craven McGinty explains that “According to the CDC, measles is so contagious that 90% of the people who are exposed will become infected if they aren’t immune” (McGinty A2).…

    One and a half million words, nineteen hours, eight movies, seven books, one story and it all ended on July 15, 2011. The final installment of the Harry Potter movies, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part Two, brought the end to the legacy, and it closed the book on many people’s childhoods. To prompt the movie, Warner Brothers- the producers of the movie- launched a series of posters with the slogan “IT ALL ENDS.” These advertisements had basic designs but had huge success on the public. An example of one of these posters is Daniel Radcliffe’s, the actor who plays Harry Potter, face looking forward. His face is glistening with sweat where the mud does not cover.…

    Caribou Essay

    • 1218 Words
    • 5 Pages

    Caribou prefer cold and dry climates, however with the polar ice caps melting, and global warming taking effect on the world, the caribou are struggling to find somewhere to live. Roads and other human developments are also minimizing caribou habitats. The caribou does not play an extremely important role in its environment due to there being so many similar animals, but it does play a role. If caribou were to go extinct there would be more vegetation readily available for other herbivores but not all animals would be capable of getting to it. The caribou use their snowshoe-like feet to push snow away to get to vegetation, and clear the way for other animals to get to the animals living under the snow and ice.…

    Emily And Tim Analysis

    • 1253 Words
    • 6 Pages

    As the film goes through the different stages of life, it comes to the last stage of their lives when some dark times are discussed and moved past. The movie might resemble moments from The Notebook, directed by Nick Cassavetes. It has a similar lengthy timeline, made up of memories from an older couple. Emily and Tim doesn’t have the same sadness factor, but contains a sameness as it relates to a man who loves his wife and their history together. What really makes this movie realistic is that if you didn’t know this before reading this review, Dukakis and Zorich are actually married in real life which gives an added zing as it creates an easy conversation flow between two people who openly care for each other despite a semi-turbulent life and a sense that they truly are good…
