CT 101 was definitely a fun experience for me. This class was my first time learning how to create certain digital media files, such as GIFs, photoshop images and creating videos. Now that I learned how to make them, creating them is sort of a fun thing for me to do and improving as I keep doing them. CT 101 never really felt like school work to be honest to me because I occupy myself around digital media everyday. As for the concept of a domain of one’s own, the domain felt as if it was testing my creativity level . I’m always looking to bringing up my creativity level because I want to practice new skills. So I guess it looks like I selected the right major to make a career in.
Everyone knows the one of the main rules in horror films are that if a girl runs up the stairs when is being attacked that she is automatically going to be slaughtered by the killer. In the case of Wes Craven’s Scream film series, that specific rule was broken and twisted around. The Scream movies are known for making parody of the rules of that people must abide in order to a survive a horror movie.The film series’ main character Sidney Prescott (portrayed by Neve Campbell) actually did run up a flight of stairs throughout the series and she managed to live out through the whole thing.
The GIFs contain material from the following films:
Scream 3 (2000)
Scream 4 (2011)
All GIFs show the scenes of Neve Campbell’s movie character “Sidney Prescott” receving the scary phone calls from the killer Ghostface and the attacks by Ghostface in which shows her running up the stairs in all of the films. For the exception Scream 2, Neve Campbell didn’t have a scene where she running up the stairs. Scream 2′s motive wasn’t really about the horror movie rules. That movie wasn’t having fun with the large known cast.
The example of copyright infringement I chose to write is the controversy between “Weird Al” Yankovic and rapper Coolio in the early 90s. “Weird Al” Yankovic is known for making parodies of hit songs from the late 80s to present. In 1996, he created a parody of Coolio’s smash “Gangsta’s Paradise” called “Amish Paradise”. Yankovic was told by his record label that Coolio had given him permission to use the song for one of his parodies. Coolio later said in a interview that he didn’t give Yankovic his permission and was disgusted how Al “descrated the song” as he said. This music controversy was settled as Coolio received the royalty checks from the proceeds of Yankovic’s song. Personally, I think that Coolio took this way out of hand. He made it seem like the song had some importance to him or that it was a very personal record not to be tampered with. He didn’t make the song himself, it’s a sample of an old Stevie Wonder song. He was probably just being money-hungry because he wasn’t upset when he got the royalty checks towards the parody.
For the perspective on my own work, all of my assignments should be claimed for fair-usage. I put in the credit for all of the original audio, video or image that I used to created my assignments in my blog. I have no copyright infringement. All is FAIR USE!
