Kevin Durant being from the OKC Thunder (at that time anyway) will build a good relationship with his fans. That means when his fans see him using the Gatorade products on the commercial to get better they want to use them too. This might get them “closer” to Durant or to his skill level. The same goes for Dwayne Wade and his Miami Heat fans. It just adds to it that Gatorade will “help” not just one team but a variety of teams. Maybe the audience will see the two stars on there, even though they may not be fans, the audience would still want to be like them because they know they are

Die Hard, a film directed by John McTiernan, successfully utilized several aesthetics, which offered viewers various meanings throughout the duration of the film.

Later he tries to catch another ball and it lands by the fence. He hears a growl then he scared and tries to throw the ball. It falls on the ground. Throughout the movie, the kids are playing baseball and trying to get the ball away from the beast. The movie was cool because when Smalls was getting better at baseball the other kids liked him and also when the treehouse exploded. It had some parts that were sad. The scenes that were sad are when Smalls gave one of his friends his dad’s baseball and they ruined it. The other scene was when

“The Mission” is a film that gives a historically accurate depiction of the events that took place in South America around 1750, displaying the jesuit missions and their attempt at expanding missionary ventures in the area. These missions foresaw the Jesuits going to uncharted areas of the jungle inhabited by the Guarani people, demonstrating the significance assimilating the Guarani people meant to the Jesuits. Additionally, the Guarani people were accurately displayed as a self-sustained society where basic components such as: productivity, protection, justice regulations and a form of a leader was evident in the form of their King. Nonetheless, the Guarani were an isolated group of individuals who were secluded to the outside world; their only contact with outside personnelles were slave traders who would put them into forced slavery for personal benefits. Not to mention the “Treaty of Madrid”, which resulted in the social and political disputes between the, Portuguese, Spanish and Catholic community; manifesting in the form of territorial conflicts and misunderstandings amongst the three vigorous societies, where each have a different purpose for the Guarani people.

Product placements are nothing new, but they have increased over the years. It is a great way for companies to gain exposure and it can be a great part of a marketing campaign. Product placements have merged to music videos, video games and books. Consumers have better reactions to the placements since they are not as intrusive as commercials. Placing a product within a movie or show can enhance the products impression and have a strong influence on a consumers purchase decision. I have noticed that the show, “The Walking Dead” uses cars within certain episodes demonstrating the cars abilities and attractiveness. Product integration is when a product becomes the target or focus of a movie or show. The difference between product placement and

Bong Joon-ho once said “I regard remaking a film as creating something again”. In cinema the production of a “remake” retells a previously successful story. This concept of altering or rather “remaking”is used in reference when a new cinematic motion picture is based on an earlier version and is then used as the source of inspiration. Often times a remake will posses a different title, contain an altered narrative structure, and may even be remade in a different language. One well-known motion picture, The Departed, is an example of this concept of a cinematic remake. The Departed (2006), by director Martin Scorsese, is a very literal adaptation and remake of the Hong Kong crime thriller, Infernal Affairs (2002), by director Andrew Lau. Scorsese's
The use of product placement within recorded visual media. Does it interfere with the film? And, Does it work? When producing a film budget is a huge factor to consider. Product placement can create a large amount of the films creative budget. Film has always been used as a form of entertainment but since the 1980’s product placement has become more of a regular occurrence within this media. (The Truman Show, 1998) is a great example of how product placement is used within a film. Within the first four minutes we are shown a great example of “faux placement” where a fake product, in this case DOGFANCY, is shown to us as a popular social magazine. Within 30 seconds of this, Truman is forced against a poster advertising Free Range Kaiser
