    Whiplash Film Analysis

    • 1014 Words
    • 5 Pages

    Chazelle depicts Andrew’s intensity through quick camera movements including dolly shots, tracking shots, quick panning that makes the viewer feel they are in the scene with him watching Andrew’s performance. The level of intensity in the cinematography reflects the pure devotion that Andrew has. Chazelle also gives us the audience’s perspective in the theatre showing how the audience’s focus is purely on Andrew. Most of the shots are close up or extreme close ups as the focus is on Andrew, the drums and Fletcher. Chazelle said that he shot the movie as if it was a thriller with suspenseful film techniques such as quick montages of close ups. Alfred Hitchcock, one of the world’s greatest directors states “montages should be impressionistic” meaning that the scene should leave out bits and pieces for the imagination of the audience to fill in the gaps. The audience’s imagination makes the scene far bigger then what is being…

    to not have a overly processed track this meant having fewer plug-ins and a more real sound. Below will highlight some of my main mixing processes. Drums Before mixing my drums together as one, I put EQ on all the track the aim was to cut out any frequencies I wouldn’t be needing and boost the ones I would. An example of this would be my bass drum. I cut out any sound above 250Hz as I wouldn’t be using this. I then boosted at around 100Hz because this is where I wanted the kick drum…

    • 5 Pages

    Dongson Drums: A Snapshot of the Village Life in Bronze Age Vietnam Thesis Statement: Although many scholars believe that the feathered figures on the drums are depictions of ancestor figures, ethnographic evidences from the Karen’s use of the drum and the Toraja’s funeral rites suggest that the images engraved on the drums are mere portrayals of village life in Dongson. Located in the Hong (Red) River valley, the Dongson society is said to be highly dependent on water for agricultural purposes.…

    surprisingly mixed age group of people overwhelmed the room. From elderly couples to single women out on the town and families with kids who seemed more interested in their phones than the prospect of seeing a piece of American Musical Theatre based on a 41-year-old movie, the crowd to me was interestingly diverse. From my seat on the right hand balcony, I had a somewhat obstructed view of the pit, where what I would categorize as a pit orchestra sat waiting to accompany the singing performers…

    Neo Soul Music Essay

    • 4 Pages

    Questlove (mostly known as the drummer of The Roots) talked about how he recorded drums for D’ Angelo’s “Voodoo” album during an interview at Red Bull Music Academy. In the recording session, he was told to emulate D’ Angelo programming the drum without quantizing it, which then accidentally created a raw, dragging and uneven drumming style that fits D’ Angelo’s music perfectly. It is very impressive to see Questlove in the interview deliberately play every drum beat behind but still being able…

    length of 60 seconds. The commercial features a gorilla that appears to have a delightful and happy expression during the advert playing a famous drum solo “In the Air Tonight” by Phil Collins. The commercial is shot in a recording studio with a purple background which reinforces the brand Cadbury throughout the advert.

    • 3 Pages

    The movie Whiplash directed by Damien Chazelle is a heart-rending story about a young drummer and his endeavour to become one of the great Jazz drummers. The grind and determination of the story's nature instills itself well to the exploration of the forces behind motivation and how it influences human actions. Throughout the movie, Andrew has to sacrifice smaller, more basic needs in order to reach the level of drumming demanded by his conductor, Fletcher. Starting off slow with physical needs,…

    The sound of the snare drum made me scared in my mind I thought Please Mr. Zielenski don’t pick me to play the snare… I had known that I could not play the snare drum last year in sixth grade and I wouldn’t even touch one the sound of it was cool, but I could never just get the rhythm right. When I started band I started with a camp over the summer and I was pretty great at playing the quarter notes only.
