2 Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs I have chosen to write about the animation movie “Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs”. I choose this movie because it was my favorite movie to watch when I was a kid. Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs was released in 1937. This film is very delightful by its colorful cartoons and animated music. I think that the story line is very fascinating and it has a positive message. I will be making an analysis of this film using formalist theory and genre theory. The formalist theory helps to analyze films from a technical perspective which means that the music, the colorful cartoons, lighting and camerawork just to name a few, are carefully studied and criticized. Contextual information Snow White and the seven dwarfs was the first Disney film that was distributed by RKO Studios until Disney opened its own distribution company in 1953 named Buena Vista ( ). Finally, in 1994 the film was released in VHS video and made a huge break in the first week selling about ten million copies. This film was one of the bestselling worldwide. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was directed by a number of directors like Ben Sharps, Larry Morey, David Hand, Wilfred Jackson and William Cottrell ( ). The main actors are Adriana Caselotti which interprets snow white and, Harry Stockwell interpreting the character of prince charming. The villain of the film is Lucille LaVerne as the witch and Moroni Olsen as the magic mirror. The whole film cost about 1.5 million dollars to make, but it grossed about fifty million dollars a crossed the US leaving a huge profit (Stephen Flynn, 2013).

    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.
