“Taming of the Shrew” Stop Motion Induction Scene Project


Our project is based upon the play, “Taming Of The Shrew” written by William Shakespeare. Our group includes Molly, Sama, Savannah, and Mario. Molly and Sama filmed and directed it, sama wrote the narration, Molly wrote this paragraph, Savannah read the narration multiple times after the app kept on crashing, until she got it perfect. And Mario was on prop duty. in the play the induction, meaning the main story was, the characters pulling the prank on Christopher Sly. The inset of the story was when the players were performing a play for Sly and the page. It was the inset of the story because, it was a play inside of a play. In our project we showed induction and the beginning of the inset. We used the stop motion to show a way of creating a scene by using multiple photos. It created a way to show movement, and creativity. Some challenges that occurred during throughout this project was, the stop motion app kept on crashing, and it did not save our narration, and we had to redo all of it. Throughout this project we have learned many words from Shakespearian times, and discovered what entertainment was like back then.

Propaganda Poster Description

In this poster one would notice, that there are four types of propaganda. The four types of propaganda located in the poster are, fear, bandwagon, repetition, and glittering generalities. For fear, the pig “Major” is standing on a bail of hay, with a shadow of a pig devil. This is used, as the propaganda fear, because it is showing that Major isn’t doing any good for there future. He actually wants them to think what there’re doing is good, but actually is dangerous and bad, and a way to get back at the humans. Major singing the song “Beasts of England” represents bandwagon. This is bandwagon because it is sending a message to all the animals, about how they should be set free. The animals agreed to this because, the song had a big affect towards all of them. Repetition is shown by the repeating of the song lyrics sung by Major. In the song it repeats the lyrics of “beasts of England, beasts of Ireland”. And lastly glittering generalities is represented by the words at the bottom saying “two legs bad, four legs good”. This creates that type of propaganda because it is a slogan, that makes one thing sound bad, and another thing good. Hopefully one would enjoy, and understand this poster.
