  • Stars Compare And Contrast

    the newborn star’s size, it could remain in this state for billions or possibly even trillions of years. However, not all stars remain so long in the phase of “childhood”, if you will. Stars will mature into “teenagers” also. This stage is called the main sequence. If the growing cloud has enough mass, the the gas and dust burns even hotter, eventually reaching temperatures to fuse hydrogen into helium. Fusion stabilizes the star by producing an outward pressure that balances with the inward pressure caused by gravity. How long the main sequence phase lasts depends on how massive it is. Do higher-mass stars live longer than lower-mass stars? To most people’s surprise, a higher-mass star has more material but burns through it faster due to higher core temperatures caused by greater gravitational forces. So in fact, lower-mass stars will survive longer. While the sun will spend about ten billion years on the main sequence, a star ten times as massive will stick around for only twenty million years. A red dwarf is normally half as massive as the sun and can, “last 80 to 100 billion years, which is far longer than the age of the universe” (Redd). About ninety percent of the stars in the universe, including the sun, are main sequence stars. The last stage of life—death—is the most complicated process to grasp, for both humans and stars alike. When stars with the mass of the Milky Way’s sun runs out of hydrogen fuel, it contracts under the weight of gravity. In the upper layers,…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • 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.

In total, we worked on 18 different sequences split over 5 episodes (1, 2, 3, 4 and…

  • 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…

  • 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.
