Taming of the Shrew Stop Motion Induction Scene Project
In the induction of the play “Taming of the Shrew” by William Shakespeare, a homeless man with the name of Christopher Sly is drunk in a bar. He is arguing with the hostess refusing to pay for his drinks. But when he passes out, a lord finds him and thinks of a brilliant prank to play on him. He is taken to the castle and is dressed up as a king, and is convinced that he is a king when he wakes up. Some players come to the castle and ask to give a performance in exchange for shelter and food, which is where the inset starts. In our recreation of the induction in a stop motion video, we used the app iMotion. The process was really simple, all we did was take numerous pictures after every little movement of each character. After we did voice over, it resembled a movie. Soha, Jaya, Raiyah, and Darrion were in our group. We started off with a written plan on paper. We figured out the characters, backgrounds, and props. Then we equally split the work to create the stop motion video, which was difficult because we did not have Lego for the main characters. We overcame that problem by drawing our characters. Although the outcome was not as professional as we wished, it still turned out nice. We learned how to use iMotion, and we also learned how to upload videos onto YouTube and add music.
The poster is well presented and shows several aspects of a good propaganda poster. The first aspect is name calling. On Mr. Jones, you can see hateful words such as: evil and abuser that will convince you that he is an antagonist. Fear is another aspect of the poster. It indicates that the side with Mr. Jones is a scary place and it will scare the animals, so they won’t want to stay with him. The third aspect is repetition. The word hell shows up a lot on the side of Mr. Jones. It puts the idea in the animal’s heads that being with Mr. Jones is a living hell. Plain folk is used in the poster two. There are multiple happy animals together and the animals that see this poster will be reminded that the happy animals were just like them. Similar to Plain folk is Bandwagon. By there being several happy animals on the freedom side, is portrays the sense of unity between the animals, and that other animals can join them. When you look at the poster you see a very happy side and a very unhappy side. When people see that, they would be convinced that they want the happy side. Who wouldn’t?
” I’d like to inquire about a lot,” the old man said, the effort of decision evident in his voice. “At my age you never know…” Page 115
” I’d prefer an older location. ” The old man down at his unpolished shoes, embarrassed. ” I mean, where trees and shrubs have had a chance to grow.” Page 115
“I’d like a good view.” The old man explained. ” but more important, privacy.” Page 117
” No, I like it the way it is–wild and secret and uncared-for–hidden by thicket of branches.” For some time, the old man stood there, gazing off into the distance. “Am I allowed…” he hesitated, correcting himself. ” Is the purchaser allowed to visit it at any time?”. Page 117
“Ouch!” yelled Mr. Jerome. ” That cursed bee stung me.” ” I’m sorry,” the old man said, ” but that sting costs the bee its life.” Then it was that Mr.Jerome begun to understand. The full implications left him aghast. There was no precedent for thisin all cemetery history. ” How dare you operate a bee hive in this cemetery?” Page 119
” I’m not soliciting business. The bees are just going about there normal and natural pursuits. Besides, Rest Haven Nectar brings a special price.” ” You sell the honey?” Page 120
” Mr. Jerome, I have done you great service. Your flowers have never been so magnificent or plentiful.” ” That’s true,” he was forced to admit. Page 121
” Mr. Jerome, I have reached an important decision: I should like to buy another lot.” Page 122
