Through distinctive images composers develop interest, drawing the responder in and thus providing insight into the experiences of others. This is demonstrated in Amanda Lohrey’s novella ‘Vertigo’ as Luke and Anna find themselves in a new and disorientating environment as they attempt to build a new life and in the ‘The Red Tree’ composed by Shaun Tan, through the nameless girl’s journey as she attempts to find herself and her place in the world. Meaning created by distinctive images creates interest thus permitting the responder to gain a greater understanding on how the experiences help shape one’s self.
In fact, I was exhausted up to the point that my vision was blurred and my head spun. I tilted my head forward, trying to focus on my lesson but I felt too dazed to continue. Frustrated, I buried my head into my arms, which felt dry from my eczema. I smelled of fresh detergent, as well as the lavender scent of my bed. My breath gave off the scent of potato chips, which I had polished off. Moreover, I sounded low and hoarse. Whenever I spoke, my monotone voice would eventually find its way out of my sore throat like an exhausted bear crawling out of its den. My constant movements were alert and attentive, and both my mind and my body remained restless. The beads of sweat that dribbled down my forehead tasted salty, almost as if I had just taken a dip in the ocean.
"I asked my laboratory assistant to accompany me home, as I believed that I should have a repetition of the disturbance of the previous Friday. While we were cycling home, however, it became clear that the symptoms were much stronger than the first time. I had great difficulty in speaking coherently, my field of vision swayed before me, and objects appeared distorted like images in curved mirrors. I had the impression of being unable to move from the spot, although my assistant told me afterwards that we had cycled at a good pace."(1)
I have spoken to a specialist since returning home and I was notified that my condition was a misdiagnosis. In addition to that I was also told that I had a tube behind my ear drum. Over the past 9-10 months I have been working on getting cleared medically so I can reenlist in the Air Force.
The Alfred Hitchcock film; Vertigo is a narrative film that is a perfect example of a Hollywood Classical Film. I will be examining the following characteristics of the film Vertigo: 1)individual characters who act as casual agents, the main characters in Vertigo, 2)desire to reach to goals, 3)conflicts, 4)appointments, 5)deadlines, 6)James Stewart’s focus shifts and 7)Kim Novak’s characters drives the action in the film. Most of the film is viewed in the 3rd person, except for the reaction shots (point of view shot) which are seen through the eyes of the main character.(1st person) The film has a strong closure and uses continuity editing(180 degree rule). The stylistic (technical) film form of Vertigo makes the film much more
Patient is an 81-year-old right-handed white male who presents with his wife for evaluation of "dizziness". He states that he has had this for two years, at least. He notes that it occurs mostly when he stands up, at which point he will feel like he is going to fall. He describes this as an actual head spinning, so it is a true vertigo. It is not merely lightheadedness. He does note that if he lies flat on his back in bed, he does not have the vertigo, but if he rolls over onto either side, he will develop a spinning sensation. It is aborted by rolling back onto his back. He notes that if he gets up quickly at night to go to the bathroom, he will have marked problems with balance. He usually sits on the edge of the bed and moves his arms and legs until he feels that the vertigo has gone away, at which point, he can
Laura Mulvey, the British scholar, she puts forward the film argument combines with psychoanalytic theory and the concept of "male gaze" in her article “Visual Pleasure and Narrative”. Mulvey mentions that, “In a world ordered by sexual imbalance, pleasure in looking has been split between active / male and passive / female. The determining male gaze projects its phantasy on to the female form which is styled accordingly. In their traditional exhibitionist role women are whisper At and displayed, with their appearance coded for strong visual and erotic impact so that they can be said to connote to-be-looking-at-ness.”(p.715) In other words, Hollywood narrative films use women in order to provide a pleasurable visual experience for men. The narrative film structures its gaze as masculine. The woman is always the object of the reifying gaze, not the bearer of it.

Film editing is an important post-production phase of the filmmaking process. It means the unlimited use of the digital technology, where the film editor works with raw footage, selecting the best shorts and combining them to create a good quality motion picture. Camera motion is one of the film editing techniques that has been widely used in the movie Vertigo to create the outstanding movie. Most importantly are the three set-pieces of camera that are interconnected in both structure and meaning. These are, the scene at Ernie's restaurant that shows the start of Scottie's pursuit in Madeleine, the celebrated zoom in and track outshot that arouses the acrophobia of Scottie, and finally, the 360-degree
The cause of this disease unknown , distention of the endolymphatic compartment f the inner ear is a pathologic finding though to be part of the pathogenesis of the disorder.

A 67 year old female presents to your outpatient clinic complaining of chronic vertigo that seemed to developed 3 years ago after a motor vehicle accident. When asked to describe the sensation, she says that it feels as if the room is violently spinning around her. She says that it occurs whenever she lays down or sits up too fast.

I went to the doctors today after having what I thought was the stomach flu that started yesterday morning and the doctor advised that I actually have food poisoning. She said that it should be resolved in two to three days. Due to a really painful stomach ach and constant being sick, I have also been feeling really dizzy. I have vertigo and dizzy spells can start from not being able to get enough sleep. I am aware that I have two assignments due in class today but I don’t think I will feel well enough to attend. I was able to finish my second summary reflection a few days ago but have been unable to fully complete my annotated bibliography. I read the syllabus and I know it states that if you want an extension
It is in the time of Last week of November and first week of December, I have lots of work to do. I have two projects and have a quiz to complete that week. Basically, being a fresher (I mean after undergrad directly to graduation – without any work experience) I am not able to handle the pressure. Mainly the pressure is created due to the assignments, quizzes, surprise tests and finally the big thing (projects). I had never written any kind of assignments and never gone through any quizzes in my entire under-graduation. So, it is a very new experience for me here and I can’t handle this pressure doing the work restlessly. The time when I got to know that I am pending to do Learning Outcomes Assignment, my mind was totally stuck and I didn’t get any ideas (what to write and how to present the assignment). I am really worried and don’t know what to do in that situation. It is the first time in my life that I have face that kind of situation. I and my friend were working on the project at his place in the same time when I was thinking about all this works. At some moment, I got to notice that my friend completed his Learning Outcomes Assignment. My mind started thinking of that how to take assignment from his laptop. As soon as he left to take bath and I have copied his assignment into pen drive and taking his assignment as reference I wrote mine. At that moment, I don’t even know what I am doing and what the consequences I should face
