Week 9: HU121 Film In Society (SHREK)

Discussion Question:
Why was this film done as an animation? Would this film have been successful as a live action movie? Why or why not?

Discussion Answer:
I believe this film was done in animation because it is about fairy tale creatures (as fractured as they are) and they creatures are generally drawn for storybooks and being presented in this was to the viewer gives them a sense of familiarity. I   believe these films would have been less successful as a live action movie because the actions and creatures would be out of their context and not feel believable and would take the viewer out of the atmosphere of the film.

Assignment A Question: 
Describe the sound design of this film. Select one or two scenes to discuss at length. How did the sound (the sound effects, the music, etc) add to the scene? Did it make it funnier? More descriptive? Did it add specific meaning to it? 
Your discussion should be at least one page in length, double spaced using 12pt font and 1 inch margins.
