Part1
I started this course with a variety of research questions. The first was if cinema had no melody it would have no feeling or meaning. For example you would be in the movie and lose interest and it would be boring and feel like it was pointless watching the film. Ive been wondering how sounds and images make a persons mood swing.Think about it if your feeling is not there, your mind wonders and you’re not focused. When your mind wonders and your not focused, when your not focused your not in tuned with the film. But I think music had definatly influenced me in the class. Ive listened to a wide variety of music that I would never imagine myself listening to. When you listen to different types of music different visualizations and your mind creates its own image. For example when your listening to slow jams it gets you in a comforting mood and relaxes you. When your listening to rap or rcok you get really pumped up or excited. All those thoughts tied into my research project and also have come from my overall outlook from this class.

Part 2
At this point after taking this class and doin research on sound and image ive been very curious to see how music videos are created and produced also how movies are created and produced. If I had a large portion of money i would definatly do one of those ideas. My interests in the sound and image has greatly increased. I sat down on the weekend a watched the simpons and even cartoons on cartoon network to see the different types of sound anf image. I never watch cartoons but i wanted to see how animation was brought to life. But if I made a movie it would definatly be a comedy or a scary movie. because in scary movies theres always certain music and the backround that make the scene more dramatic or bring more life to the scene. I would love doing a comedy just because im guy who loves to laugh and thats jus flat out my sense of humor.

If cinema had no melody it would have no feeling or meaning. For example ou have been to a movie where it was boring or didn’tmake sense. Your feeling is not there, your mind wonders and you’re not focused. When your mind wonders and your not focused, when your not focused your not in tuned with the film.

R&B music has had some sexual content controversies over the years. With scenes in music video about being to sexual or showing to much skin. Some feel its to much to show on TV because young teenagers and little kids are watchinh these music videos. web sites to look at youtube.com and also MTV.com

differences between the two

sound
melody
feeling
We have noticed that these two songs are giving out the same message but are being produced in different settings and tones. Our objective of this project is to get the feedback from the class before we give them the specific ideas of the song and see if the come across the same references we seen.

Matt Houston Project 2

I used four different types of music: Metallica The day never comes, Al Green love and happiness, Lil Wayne 3 peat, and some random Classical music. What I did with the music was use them in the backrounds of my football games. I wanted to see if the music would make me stay intuned in the game or if it would side track me from the game. ive came to the conclusion that Lil Wayne (rap music) and Metallica (rock music) best fits during a football game.
