Online Class: Film Appreciation

Course Description

‘Film Appreciation for Modern Audiences’ is intended as a journey through the world of film. It is a sampling of the thought and accumulated critical opinion that forms the basis of the modern stature of 100 years of film-making–as art or culturally important dramatic work.

If you love film, then this course will help you learn more about film analysis, film reviews and discussions, period genres and movements in film style, and more. It will provide you an informed opinion that will hopefully make your enjoyment of the film medium deeper.

This course may be useful for professionals who need to be informed and conversant about the film-industry; for the layman who wants to know as much as he/she can about the world of film for personal enjoyment; or for the student, hoping to become familiar with the ‘lay-of-the-land’ for film-criticism.

Lessons include discussions on the following:

  • How you can get real enjoyment from the films you watch, and why you should care
  • Early film-history
  • The process of film-making and how it relates to understanding the films you watch
  • A look at 100 years of film-styles, genres and movements
  • A discussion of film-psychology, and some fascinating aspects of the perception of films
  • A review of ‘films to watch’, taken in 20-year periods starting in 1900, and moving through 2007, featuring all the classics from each era
  • General ideas about film and art-theory as a consumer habit
  • Film composers to know
  • Film directors to know
  • How to get your twenty-dollar’s worth at the movie-theater
  • New ways to enjoy film and new audience technologies
  • And much more

    BeepBox

    BeepBox is an online tool for sketching and sharing chiptune melodies.

    All song data is packaged into the URL at the top of your browser. When you make changes to the song, the URL is updated to reflect your changes. When you are satisfied with your song, just copy and paste the URL to save and share your song!

    Instructions

    You can add or remove notes by clicking on the gray rows at the top. BeepBox automatically plays the notes out loud for you. Try it!

    Notes go into patterns, and you can edit one pattern at a time. Those numbered boxes at the bottom of the editor are the different patterns you can edit. Click the other boxes to move to a different part of the song, or click the arrows on the currently selected box to swap which pattern is played during that part of the song.

    There are four rows of patterns that BeepBox can play simultaneously, and each row has its own set of patterns. The first three rows can play melodies and the bottom row is for drums.

    The purple loop underneath the numbered boxes controls which part of the song is currently repeating. Move the loop to listen to a different part of the song, or drag the ends to expand the loop to include the whole song.

    When BeepBox has focus (click on its interface above), you can use these keyboard shortcuts:

    Spacebar: Pause or Resume
    Z: Undo
    Y or Shift Z: Redo
    C: Copy the current pattern
    V: Paste the current pattern
    [ ]: Move the playhead backward and forward
    Arrow Keys: Change which bar is selected
    1-8: Reassign a pattern to the currently selected bar

    In the pattern editor, you can click and drag horizontally on a note to adjust its duration. You can also click above or below an existing note to enable a rapid arpeggio/trill effect, oscillating between two or more simultaneous notes.

    ADVANCED: Drag vertically from an existing note to bend its pitch, or drag vertically from above or below the note to adjust its volume.

    BeepBox has many more features. Try playing with the buttons and menus on the right side to find out what it can do!

    About

    BeepBox does not claim ownership over songs created with it, so original songs belong to their authors.

    Neither John Nesky nor BeepBox assume responsibility for any copyrighted material played on BeepBox. No songs are ever received, recorded, or distributed by BeepBox’s servers. All song data is contained in the URL after the hash (#) mark, and BeepBox running inside your browser converts that data into sound waves.

    You can download an offline version of BeepBox to use when you don’t have access to the internet. The features are otherwise the same.

    You can download and use the source code under the MIT license. In particular, you can use the synth code as demonstrated here to play BeepBox songs in your own Flash or JavaScript projects!

    Alcohol and Drug Recovery: Residential Treatment Programs #alcohol #abuse, #drug #abuse,


    #

    Residential Treatment Programs

    R ESIDENTIAL or In-Patient Programs usually require a commitment of at least 30 days and typically include room and board. Through intensive counseling and group interactions, addicts/alcoholics learn how to regain control of their lives using key recovery tools. Most programs follow the 12 steps of AA. Some residential programs are staffed to provide addicts with detoxification services to help through the early stages of withdrawal.

    The goal of all recovery programs is to help the addict recover from drug/alcohol abuse by addressing the underlying issues that contribute to addiction. These programs remove the addict from the environment and acquaintances that enabled their addiction allowing the recovering addict to focus on their addictive behavior instead of their drug use.

    Most programs are staffed with a team of drug abuse, and alcohol abuse expert professionals in addiction recovery. Programs combine a sober living environment with intensive group counseling that treats each participant with respect, dignity and confidentiality.
