Steven Spielberg is arguably one of the most crowd-pleasing directors known in the filming industry, for his films have a feeling of whimsy to them that makes audiences become engaged with his work. In 1975 Spielberg, would direct an adaptation about a killer shark simply known as “Jaws”.
The narrative is a very simple one to follow, the film starts off with a shark attack killing a woman and her remains found by the town's sheriff Brody. In response to this attack, Brody tries to close the beach in fear of more attacks, however, the mayor of the town refuses to let him close it down, even after a boy is killed he is still adamant to keep the beach open. To stop the attacks on the people of Amity, Brody gets the help of shark expert, Matt and fishing man, Quint to finally get rid of this killing menace.
Jaws is a 1974 novel by American writer Peter Benchley and a year after its publication, Spielberg decided to make the book into a film. Rumour has it that the mechanical sh…

reflective statement

During this project, i have seen that I have improved in my method of working but, I still need to take the time to into how to plan out my art of's and be more design driven as Phil has said. I have enjoyed  From script to screen and I am proud and the  artwork I have created, the only thing I would change is my pre -vis for I feel that it needed to be a bit more smooth and fluent in the animation & pacing for I felt that in some parts of the animation it looked rushed. From script to screen has given me a good look at how I can be more professional and I have enjoyed it.

For this story, I would like to set it in the 1950's for my Environments, meaning I would make the houses like identical yet different colours to be historically accurate of the time, for the show they're personality and individuality through pastel colours yet make them stylised like the animations of the time. like the pictures below:

Figure 1
Members of audiences viewing Steven Spielberg’s films would consider him as a great director of fantasy, reality, suspense, thriller, epic and horror films. Whereas other audiences may view his films with a great deal of whimsy and delight, for all to enjoy. In 1971 Spielberg directed a thriller film about masculinity, simply known as “Duel”(1971).

The narrative of “Duel”(1971) is about masculinity, and the many ways this was demonstrated through the story, characters, vehicles and camera shots. It begins with the main character, David Mann, an everyday man who is thought of as a little unmanly by his wife, for not defending her. When on a long business trip through California’s dusty highway, he come into contact with a huge truck, the driver of the truck tormented and taunted David, by overtaking and getting in the way of his driving. Things take a dramatic turn however when the truck driver tries to kill David, by any means necessary, forcing David to make a stand and ram…
