Taming of the Shrew – Stop Motion // Sophie and Morgan

Taming of the Shrew- Stop Motion Video

Our presentation of the induction scene in Taming of the Shrew by William Shakespeare was filmed in the form of stop motion on an app called Stop-Motion video which you can get off the App store. During the process of this film the people working on this project were Morgan Yard and Sophie Irvine, Morgan did most of the filming and some editing and Sophie did the majority of character moving/adjusting and editing. The bulk of the presentation was the induction scene which took over most of the movie and there was only about 10 seconds of the inset in the end. The main the thing we we were focusing in while doing this project was induction and inset scenes Induction is the play within a play like an introduction to the main performance. Inset is the main play that the characters from the induction “watch”. During the filming process we had some difficulty with making the “slides” flow but the overall project we would say was fun and interesting. We learned while filming this project that there are many different and unique ways to film a presentation in video form like this one.

Animal Farm Propaganda Poster



Animal Farm

Propaganda Poster


In the book “Animal Farm” by George Orwell, there are animals that live on a farm owned by Mr. Jones. The animals decide that they want to rebel against their owner due to the awful treatment and horrendous labour put upon the animals. Once the animals rule the farm there proves to be a bit of a power struggle.


The propaganda poster represents the harsh reality of the animals not only in the book but in real life. “We are one, so we should act like one” is the quote used in the poster; this tries to convince the animals that they are all suffering from the same situation using the technique glittering generalities. This is because the quote is a slogan and if it is inspirational enough to the animals; they would repeat and speak of it a lot like repetition. It makes the animals look a lot better than the humans. Using card stacking, the poster makes others feel bad for the animals. Hopefully that would mean that other animals would bandwagon and choose to join the side that all the other animals chose to join. It would be the best thing for the animals pick being treated equally instead of being treated like labour workers, which is the goal of the propaganda poster.
