The Sound of Music For my first paper, I decided to choose a film I had heard a lot about but had never seen, The Sound of Music. This film was released in 1965 and was an instant hit around the country. It broke the record for most box office hits of all time and it really brought out the light in musicals. It has a lot of significance in film history because it was one of the first major musicals.

The paper I decided to do was on “Schindler’s List”. I have seen this movie four times and yet had not really noticed the many ways in which the director, Steven Spielberg, used the camera to emphasis a “million words”. It was interesting, when watching this film from this stand point, how I was able to see the importance of the way the director uses sounds and color to make some much significant points of a film.
Secondly I would like to write something of a quick summary so that the movie can be better understood. The movie begins as many do as of late with a man, or to be more specific a bachelor. Of course
The film that I chose to write about is a Paramount Pictures presentation titled Mean Girls, starring Lindsay Lohan and also featuring a handful of Saturday Night Live cast members, including Tina Fey the author of this picture.

She tries to figure herself out by where she can fit in and who she needs to become friends with.
When deciding what movie to do for this particular paper I faced a few issues.

What is the sound of music?Your initial response to this question would be the 1965 classic film,however Music is a concept of universality.But, what would i know about universality, i am 16 going on 17, but music is simple as do,rei,me.

Music is featured in many different things, such as films, novels, and television. Music also plays a role in the development of the magical beings from The Hobbit.

Both acting and picture can stand independently from one another, but music is the one that makes the movie memorable.
