Introductory Analysis- Frozen

My chosen scene from “Frozen” ends at 3:48. The scene that I’ve chosen is a part from movie “Frozen” which Olaf tries to save Ana and takes her to Elsa. I’ve chosen this scene because I thought editing, sound effects and acting were nicely done and it’s the scene in the movie that has the most actions. I think this scene is the best scene from the movie “Frozen” due to the quality of its sound, editing, and acting.

First, this scene is a well-made scene due to its sound effects and music. The music added to this scene perfectly matched with the action and the atmosphere of the scene. For instance, when Olaf started to imagine himself in forests in summer and danced with happiness and impression from 2:11, the song played perfectly matched with the lyrics of the song and theme of the section, which is bright in principle. The music played in this section made the audience feel the unity of the music and the cinematography. Moreover, as the places changed as Olaf changed the places that wanted to go, the music changed as well following the new atmosphere of the new background. As an example, when Olaf moved to a beach from forest at 2:35, piano was added and the beats got faster when Olaf jumped into the water to create music that matches with beach and vacation than forests and flower. Also, when the enormous monster appeared behind Olaf and kicked Olaf out from the cliff, the “boom-boom-boom” sound made the scene more liveliness.

Second, the acting enhanced the quality of the scene and made the audience feel comfortable even the scene has the most actions in the movie. Even though it’s animation and only has voice actors involved in this movie, Elsa, Ana, Olaf, and Kristoff acted like they were the actual characters and the voice actors saved the voices fitting to the plot. For instance, at 1:28, when Ana introduced Kristoff and the reindeer to Olaf, its voice actually sounded like Olaf was interested in learning them and didn’t have any wariness toward Kristoff and the reindeer. Also, the facial expressions of the characters made the scene more liveliness by making the audience feel like it’s the actual characters acting on the screen. For example, at 1.58 when Kristoff asked Olaf about his experience in summer, Olaf’s facial expressions showed his desires in summer. It made the viewers feel that Olaf truly wanted to enjoy a full measure of summer and sunlight as he closed his eyes and started to imagine himself in forests.

Lastly, the editing was nicely done and fitted really well to the plot and the actings. Throughout the scene, there weren’t any missing or random scenes and went smoothly without any awkward moments between sections when Olaf changed places that he wanted to go. Especially when Olaf imagined himself in the forest and the beach from 2:12, the editing was smoothly done and didn’t make the viewers feel that the sections were just put together without any editing and trimming. As Olaf moved from place to place and even the background kept changing, the sections that were between each place were done really well and connected like all the scenes were filmed by just single cut without having any awkward moments. Also, at 0:34 when Olaf had his head upside down and got the reversed view, the director put Olaf’s upside down view to make clear about his reversed view.



Mis Pasatiempos

Cuando era pequeña, era como otras chicas y chicos. Me gustaba a jugar con amigos y ver dibujos animados. Yo hablar sobre mis pasatiempos que tuve en el pasado. De pequeña, cuando tenía seis años yo complí mis amigars despues del kindergarten y jugábamos en el partido de recreo o en mi casa. Me gustaba a jugar con muñecas con mis amigas y jugar a la casita. Por la noche, me encantaba a ver dibujos animados o ver la tele con mi hermano y beber leche y comer las galletas. De pequeña, odiaba trabajar y estudiar. Todavía odio estudiar y leer. Ahora mismo, me gusta a escuchar la mùsica y jugar con mis amigas. Si me gustaba a ver la tele en el pasado, me gusta a jugar socialmente con mis amigas por hablar y escuchar la música que ver la tele.

The objective of this assignment was to draw a fish with black pencil using different value scale.

Art element I used in this assignment was line, our objective was to draw a line in different value scale.

We drew our fish drawing on big piece of paper. First, I used just light pencil to sketch just the basic shape of my fish for 3 minutes. Then, we started putting details and changing the shape in to drawing using another pencil. And, then we used special kind of thick pencil to make different values (10) by rubbing it on our drawing. Also, we used special kind of thick black pencil to make the drawing darker to make different values. Lastly, I used white color pencil to smudge the drawing to gather to make it look neater and better.

I don’t think I succeed in using 10 value scales, which is objective of this task. I think I used only 6 or 7 value scales. I couldn’t make my drawing darker, and I didn’t which part I should make darker. Also, another objective of this assignment was to use 10 value scales and draw those 10 values smoothly and connect them. But, as you see my drawing looks like separated piece, the drawing should be dark, less dark, light, less light, But, my drawing it get very dark and very light beside it.

I think I can I improve my drawing by, trying to make differences in value scales. For example, I could make some parts darker and making parts lighter as possible. Also, I could use white color pencil to make my drawing smoother by smudging it on paper.

Using all 10 value scales was really difficult for me. It was really challenging for me to make slight differences in darkness of color. Another difficult thing was drawing a fish. And, I didn’t know which part has to be dark and which part has to be lighter. It was really hard for me to draw the shape of fish and putting details in fish. It was really difficult know like what I need to draw inside of fish because, the inner side of fish looked just same for me. So, I didn’t know where to draw things like fish.

There were lots of unique things about this assignment. First, we did dissection of real fish. So, we had to touch it and wash it cut it and drawing the inside of the fish. We didn’t draw like the image of fish, we really see it and draw it.  Another unique thing about this assignment was the object looked different as how we used. So, the appearance of fish can be different depends on how we dissect the fish. We had chance to make up the appearance.

In this assignment, the objective was to use all 10 value scales to make our drawing realistic. Before we did this assignment, we did other assignments (summative) too. They were about perspective drawing and contour drawing. But, all of them were not about value scales. In this assignment, we actually had chance to practice on value scale. And, trying to use all value scales in drawing.

Renaissance artists used real living creature as an object in their drawing. Which means, they could change an appearance of that appearance of the object depends on they use. For example, right now artists used object that is already done like ball or bottle or non-living creature. But, in this assignment we dissect the fish and draw the image of fish. We could change the appearance of fish depend on how we cut and how we dissect the fish like renaissance artist did.
