  • GATTACA: Movie Analysis

    The first negative aspect to the world of GATTACA would be that those chosen to be one’s partner seemed to be solely based on the other person’s genetic sequence and their “ranking.” When Irene goes to sequence Jerome’s (Vincent’s) hair and gets the sequence back, the person working at the sequencing booth tells her that Jerome’s “rating” is a 9.3 and that he is “quite the catch.” By saying this, combined with the public sequencing booths, the world of GATTACA is one that is based on genes and makes it seems like that there would be no love at first sight, but rather love at the first sight of each other’s sequences. Also, when the public sequencing booth told Irene that Jerome (Vincent) his rating, how was Jerome’s sequence rated? What would be considered a 10? Superman? The idea of only choosing someone based off of their genes or their rating is just wrong. In GATTACA, it would seem to me that most people choose their spouse after looking at each other’s genetic sequences and rating and perhaps not even truly love the other one. Also, if one partner decided to go sequence the other and finds out that they might not have the rating or sequence that was hoped for, then the relationship between the two might be severed. Only those who did not care too much about one’s genes could be able to find their true love. It seems that the world of…

  • Mrs Fadil's Afterlife Case Study

    Kevin Tod Haug, the client VFX Supervisor, contacted Cinesite Montreal initially in (do we know the month?) to talk about ‘out of this world’ environments and ‘epic’ set extensions for Mrs Fadil’s afterlife sequence which was going to be imminently filmed in Toronto and in Oklahoma. Very quickly, we also got involved in the look development of the storm, which is a character in itself, alongside other sequences. In total, we worked on 18 different sequences split over 5 episodes (1, 2, 3, 4 and…

  • Nt1330 Unit 1 Assignment

    All of the learning patterns are required in my role at some point every day I work. At times I need to blend several of the patterns to accomplish 1 goal. Fielding questions and teaching new skills require me to intensify my Precision and use it with my natural, practical, teach style pattern that is Technical Reasoning. Solving problems is definitely something I intensify my Sequence with if it’s a customer issue. I also need to map out and list what has happened to gather enough detail…

  • Second Language Sequence

    Learning a second language is a complex process that exceeds the acquisition of its structure and vocabulary. One of the major components of mastering a new language requires learners to become familiar and sensitive to the preference in language use by native speakers of certain sequences of words over others (Wray, 2000). It is the mastery of these word sequences that distinguishes novice from proficient L2 learners. Yet, there is still little agreement across studies on the number of words…

  • Moonrise Kingdom Analysis

    When analysing the placement of characters in the film we must acknowledge both the physical placement of the characters in a particular shot or sequence and the placement of a character in the plot or story of the film. While similar in title, the two concepts have drastically different interpretations and uses when analyzing elements of a film. The placement of a character in a shot is the character’s specific placement in front of the camera during a shot or sequence. This concept is analysed…

  • Saul Bass: Graphic Designer

    The arm was distorted and had a series of rectangular shapes to form the arm, which bass considered to represent drug addiction. Preminger however disagreed with Bass over which animated sequence with the arm looked the best. Bass argued that “the sequence fell flat without animation” but Preminger disagreed. The official compromise was “staccato-like movements as the arm segments maneuvered through the visual progression”. After this compromise, the sequence went down as a classic in American…

  • Stars Compare And Contrast

    Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) and the more well known Hubble Telescope. SDSS has devoted most of its two thousand nights of observing to measuring spectra, or light waves, “passing light from individual stars and galaxies through a fiber-optic spectrograph, which divides light into component wavelengths much like a prism separates light into the colors of the rainbow” (Blanton, Einstein). According to these images produced by an ultra-smart lens, astronomers are able to observe galaxies and…

  • Personal Learning Habits

    I try to use all of them to the fullest extent. My sequence learning pattern is at an use first level with a score of 30. I was not surprised by this score because keeping things organized is mandatory in order for me to function. I always have to have clear, detailed instructions before I can begin anything. I like knowing exactly what is expected of me with no surprises. It is very beneficial for me as a learner to have examples to refer to when I need assistance. My precision learning pattern…

  • Personal Narrative: My Learning Project

    Everyone has their unique ways of learning something from start to finish. Often times we take for-granted our abilities to successfully teach a task or technique to ourselves not to mention others. Once we find that drive or that spark we can put forth the effort to teach us something that we have never learned before. Its all about the ideas behind what actually goes into learning something new. In an effort to gain a better understanding of how we learn I have thought of a learning goal,…

  • Analysis Of HCV DNA

    Approach: The specific aim of this Phase I project is to establish the technical merit and feasibility of detection of HCV RNA using an innovative assay called TARA. The overall work principles and design of the assays are shown in Figure 1. We will use peptide nucleic acid (PNA)-based probes to investigate in detail the signaling power and the selectivity of a transfer reaction (Figure 2). PNA is a chemically and biologically stable DNA analogue that combines an increased affinity towards DNA…
