Scene analysis

The director of “Hotel Rwanda” Terry George uses non-diegetic sounds at every powerful opportunity he occurs, he uses them to add a power effect to other send a hidden message such as, when Paul Rusesabagina was told to take the river road as according to the supplier of Paul was clear which it wasn’t it was just so Paul could see what the “Hutu’s” had done to the “Tutsi’s”. It captures a shot of someting and makes the audience know what it is but wonder how it happens and then the non-diegetic sound then tell us the story.

he stepped out the car and we had a mid shot of him getting out of the car but he then drops out of the shot and that leaves the audience in suspense of wanting to know what has happened to him. When he drops it then switches to a quick close shot of a dead humans face and here is when the non-diegetic sound comes in, as soon as we see that close up of the face of the person a non-diegetic sound of a machete swoosh giving us a hidden message showing us that that is how she died.

Metaphor in Romeo and Juliet

Your task is to identify the metaphor present in the following excerpt and then write a paragraph that explains the metaphor and its effect on the meaning of the passage it is embedded in.



I fear, too early: for my mind misgives
Some consequence yet hanging in the stars
Shall bitterly begin his fearful date
With this night’s revels and expire the term
Of a despised life closed in my breast
By some vile forfeit of untimely death.
But He, that hath the steerage of my course,
Direct my sail! On, lusty gentlemen.

Feel free to watch the presentation again from this lesson to remind you of how to approach a passage that contains a metaphor:

Romeo & Juliet

Romeo & Juliet


“I fear too early, for my mind misgives

Some consequence yet hanging in the stars

Shall bitterly begin he’s fearful date

With this nights revels, and expire the term

Of a dispised life clos’d in my breast,

By some vile forfeit of untimely death.

But he that hath the steerage of my course

Direct my sail! On, Lusty gentleman”



This is a good quotation that contains within it a strong reference to Romeo’s fate. What is needed now is for you to explain that in your own words, using the relevant parts of the quotation for reference. I look forward to reading it.

In the movie the police officer is the prince in the play & book.

This is Your Online Domain

 Icon for Student Blogs at Edutronic.Net

Hello and welcome to your personal online journal.

This platform has been created to enhance and enrich your learning at the London Nautical School. Its purpose is to provide you with an audience for your work (or work-in-progress) and you have the choice (by altering the ‘visibility’ of your posts) of whether your work on here is visible to the world, or only to your teacher.

Anything you post here in the public domain represents you and thus it’s important that you take care with that decision, but don’t be afraid to publish your work – as the feedback you may get from people at home, your peers and people from around the internet is only likely to enhance it.

Remember you can always access your class blog and all manner of resources through the Edutronic.net main website – and by all means check out the sites of your peers to see what they’re getting up to as well.

If you have any questions for me, an excellent way to get an answer is to create a new private post on this journal. I am notified of any new posts and will reply swiftly to any queries.

Make the most of, and enjoy this new freedom in your English learning.



Mr Waugh
