Nightmare Design Analysis of my own project and Austin’s.

I can’t remember precisely when the nightmare occurred in my sleep, only that it was during an afternoon nap on a school day. I had to leave school early that day because I had to much hamburgers during the Morning and felt on the merge of throwing up. In my stage design, there was a simple room with a lunch table and a single chair besides it. I remember being forced into the dark room. A voice told me to shove food down my throat. I could not resist. I got sicker and sicker. The moment I woke up, I emptied my stomach through my mouth, into a garbage can. Everything felt good after. I feel that I was quite successful in conveying the feeling of being forced with the dark room. This also accomplished my goal to show that even an everyday thing like eating had a fearful side to it. Through this project, I learnt that something scary does not just mean a stereotypical grave yard, murder, or even dark alleys. I realize that sometimes things in everyday life, things that the audiences interact with or do themselves can also be used to bring the fear out of audiences. It might even have a better effect if the audience itself has experienced the sensation before. One thing that I feel could be developed further, is to add food pieces to my set to convey the meaning of it better. Another thing is to make it more interesting and new.

When I see Austin’s design, my primary instinct compels me to think of how massive the shape/ship must be, dwarfing the buildings beside it a d blocking out the sky. I really like how he planned the ship to be hanging because the ship in itself could also be another setting. This way, the audience can experience and look at new and different places. I feel that Austin is successful in his design because of how he represents the ship by having nearby buildings. Of course, if the set is made, it would be much more detailed. One way to make this better is to turn the design into 3d, instead of it being 2d. One more way is for one point the ship drops and we realize that there is space in the ship for actors to act in.

Death Beneath the Smiling Factory Ads

Through the process of my Capstone Project, I have learnt many statistics about the Chinese factory workers the problems they face. This includes death rates, factory conditions, living conditions, suicides and grievance systems. My beliefs have changed because at the start of this project with little to no knowledge, I did not believe the rates of the factory workers dying and being mistreated are so high. As I researched and looked at many articles and newspapers, I started to realize actually how severe the problems are that the Chinese factory workers have to face. If I get a chance to redo my project, I would make my citations more solid and check to include all whenever a fact is used.

The Economic Growth of the World

The issue that I would like to focus on isn’t necessarily the one that is causing the most problems but it is the one I am most interested in which is the economic growth. One of the main beliefs I have about this is that it will be the most beneficial if solved. With poor or countries growing stronger, they could contribute to technology and many other aspects of peoples life making them better; On the other hand, say by getting rid of poverty, it might help us in the long long long long run and a tremendous amount of effort would need to be spent on it whereas, by improving the economy of weaker nations, we could gain their assistance in many things.

My question would be, “How do we make a difference to weaker nations economically by using less resources?”

The message that I would like to send to the world is that doing this would not only be good for the poor countries but also for the greater good of the world.

The feedback I would like to receive is about if my claim is specific enough to be answered and if there are any weaknesses to my plan.

The French Revolution in First Person

March 17th, 2018 Posted 5:48 am

Morgan Frenchman is a man with a very strong sense of justice and cause. The start of the French revolution began when he was 29. He played his part in the French Revolution by standing up his strong believe that the monarch was wrong. He fought bravely for his belief of what was right even if it caused his life at the very end.

The French revolution has had tremendous change on the society, politics and economy of France. But some things always stay the same such as the economy still remained disastrous after the revolution. This is due to the many losses during battles and sieges. There was still the voting system and there were still a lot of starving peasants. Most changes were good like the fall of Robespierre. After his death the revolution had basically stopped. Life was slower and calmer than before. Now there was less society difference. The Church had its power and wealth taken away. All noble titles were abolished. Men were to be born and remain free and equal in rights. After the revolution, the king was ripped of his power to make laws. Laws were now made by the Legislative Assembly. The assembly is elected by active citizens of France and gave about four million men the power to vote. The new government was kind of a democracy but there were still limitations to who could vote. A lot of people had died, but at least they have left the people still living a legacy of equal rights and a stronger voice.
