We burst out of the door, unveiling ourselves to the crowd outside. We felt like rock stars. Everyone had to get a few more pictures with other friends as they arrived and then we filed inside. The place was decorated from top to bottom, glittered stars hung from the ceiling, white Christmas lights twinkled all around, and glimmering gowns in every color made the entire venue sparkle. As a class, months earlier, we had chosen the theme, “I’ve had the time of my life”. The girls had pulled it from our favorite movie, “Dirty Dancing”, and I think the boys just went with it. We sat down for dinner where we were served our choice of meat, with rice or potatoes and a medley of veggies. Nobody ate much though, either because of nerves, vanity, or just plain desire to get to showing off our best moves, we wanted to boogie! After about an hour the tables were cleared off of the dance floor and it was time to the highly anticipated partying. The DJ played the hottest jams of 1999 and we danced the night away. Most of the girls were in their bare feet, unable to take the pain of high heels any longer as we busted our best moves.
It was the first time I had ever been to a party. I had just graduated high school, and did not have nor ever did have any sort of interest in going to a party. One of my fellow classmates had invited me to her party on the night of graduation, and I decided why not? I arrived at my classmate’s house around nine, and immediately was overwhelmed by the makeshift dance floor in the backyard, the loud, unfamiliar music, and the disco lights. It did not take long for the party to get started. Boys and girls alike started to make their way to the makeshift dance floor, immediately dancing on one another. I was absolutely taken away as girls that I had known for four years bent over and began to press their backsides up against boys,
I was able to keep my composure and not use force. It took a lot of perseverance, but I did not desert her to get someone for help because I knew that I could not leave Tiffany alone in the hallway while she was angered. I did not leave her to ask somebody for help. Although I had become timorous as a result of the unexpected aggression, after a long struggle, I managed to return Tiffany to her classroom calmly. I then reported what had happened to her
“I thought you were one of them,” he admits, squirming under Walker's punishing hold. “I told them last time I saw them that if I did see them again, then I’d kill them.”
He was giving me that cold stare he had going for himself all over again. Hell I think that he might just actually have something to say for once. Wow. Here I was thinking he just didn't have it in him. Huaha.

"That's Tucker, and Sonja. That's how they showed up, I don't know what they were doing and they don't remember. Or they just don't want to tell. Sonja never changes but don't be surprised if you ever see Tucker lounging around with a grey shirt on and some darker jeans on."
"Awe, boys that's so cute, she doesn't swear, she's innocent and pure" He chuckled and started walking towards my way, with his posse following behind him. "You and I both know what you don't have the guts to use pepper spray princess." He had said, calmly like it was just a friendly conversation but I could feel the tension and the unease in the air, like a thick thick fog in the late winter nights.
“NO TALKING!” McCarter barked, his demeanor changing from friendly to furious in the space of a few seconds. With his shoulders squared, he walked over to where the two undercover officers stood and glared into Booker’s face before yelling, “IS THAT

Toy Story was released in 1995, the animation saw a new age dawn. Not only did it introduce CGI (Computer Generated Imagery); but also, showed the capacity from humanity and emotion that director John Lasseter and the rest of the team brought to the animated film. The film uses a constructed text to put across a theme of two complete different characters learning how to work together beyond their rivalries to rise above a common enemy and work towards a common goal.
Since the dawn of film, back in 1895, directors and filmmakers utilized every worldly element they could to have not only characters and the plot tell a story to the audience, but so the things that created the atmosphere contribute to the progression of the story as well. Manipulating the mise-en-scéne, or all of the elements that contribute to the atmosphere or mood of a film, in various degrees such as camera angles, editing technique, lighting, sounds, and color, can shift the mood of a scene and alter the audiences feeling. In most films, light can be symbolic and tell a story in a way that words couldn’t. As filmmakers use chiaroscuro, the arrangement of light and shadow to tell a story in a scene or film, to provoke or portray a certain emotion ranging from happiness, relief, sorrow, and even sinister. Sound manipulation enhances these emotions and contributes to the story enough to allow the audience to foreshadow. Examples of this can be found in early films such as Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans, M, and Scarface.
