Folk Art - Creates art only for the purpose of self-fulfillment, filling personal desire. Mass Art - Art created for the purpose of appealing to the mass public (fame & fortune). Wide network of people, never created by just an individual. Fine Art - Not for the individual, but instead for a specific, refined audience. World of history and the past, awareness and competition of previous “fine artist”. Escapism Dominant Ideology Storytelling requires conflict Obligatory Moment - brings forces of good and evil together. Rarely occurs in real life in a direct manner. Hero typically “underdog” to beating villain, which creates the obligatory moment. Mise-en-scene - The physical trappings of the shot. Physical aspect of everything that we see. Deus ex Machina (“God from Machine”) - A God-like occurrence (miracle) occurs that allows the “hero” to succeed over the villain. Divine change of spirits. Will of the Gods, will of fate--really the will of the writers/narrators. Ÿ Examples: Ghost Busters, Jaws, The Perfect Murder (Woman attacked by husband, throws knife away, she falls back, and hand lands on meat thermometer, which ultimately saves her life) O’Henry Ending - Sudden dramatic twist that occurs at the end that makes you rethink everything you originally believed. Last phrase/piece of information is a twist. (The Sixth Sense) DeRigeur Ending - Ending that is typically a false ending and usually can be expected due to familiarity (ex. Main character appears to be dead/killed early in a movie/book). Denoument - Fill in “gaps” throughout the story to tie up any loose-ends for the audience. Suspension of disbelief - Put aside feeling of disbelief if it can be portrayed to be logical/ believable. (Exs. Jurassic Park, E.T., “Luke Skywalker” in Star Wars). Classical Tragedy - About the “end” of things. Generally, “man at his best.” Individual who must fail. Classical Comedy - About the continuation of things. Generally, “man at his worst”. Individual who can not fail. Elements of Comedy: 1) Sex. 2) Security. 3) Food and Drink. Catharsis - Purging of pity and fear. Ambiguity - Feeling complex, often conflicting, emotions. Double Entendre - Word/sentence that has 2 meanings. One is almost always innocent, while the other is typically sexual in nature. Minstrel Shows (1840’s-1960’s)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
