shots of people unknowingly eating dolphin

blood in the water • “A dolphin’s smile is nature’s biggest deception”

Sound

• Gentle and upbeat music plays when they are explaining how smart the dolphins are.
• Hear a woman cry and sad music plays as it shows a dolphin struggling to survive. It is bleeding and just escaped the slaughter place.
• At the end, you can hear the dolphins crying out as they are speared by fishermen in the cove.

Ethos
• The main narrator was a dolphin trainer for the show “Flipper” in the 60’s.

Logos
• Japanese culture has a history of mercury poisoning. This can be traced back to the diet of dolphin and whales.
• 23,000 killed each year by Japan various experts in the field
professional equipment for high quality film
actual footage from Taiji, Japan Activists to tell the audience why they care about dolphins, as well as why all humans should. There stories and their visible passion for dolphins are very beneficial to The Cove’s goal to motivate people to take action against the dolphin slaughter in Taiji and adds passion to the documentary, that footage of the dolphin slaughter alone may not have.

Instances in which visual pathos was used to motivate viewers to stop dolphin slaughter in Taiji:

· The reactions of the activists.
· The stories of Ric O’Barry, the surfers and the other advocates
· When they film the obvious passion the supporters have for dolphins and other cetaceans.
· Personification of the dolphins (testimonials from scientists about dolphin intelligence and their human like traits.)
· Comparing and relating dolphins to humans gives justification for the activists to break the law to save the dolphins. This makes the viewers feel sympathy when the surfers are arrested and when free-diver Mandy Cruickshank sees the blood coming from the cove.
· Showing the undercover footage where the Japanese authorities cover the situation up and the food industry allowing dolphin meat to be given to school children created anger and frustration. (In Japan, school children have to eat everything in the meal, including the toxic dolphin meat.)
· The documentary created a feeling of fear in the viewers when they film the intimidation they face from the Japanese government.
· Viewers feel a sense of appreciation and admiration for the acts heroism displayed by the activists. Viewers also fear and care for the dolphins in the film

Instances in which visual ethos was used to motivate viewers to stop dolphin slaughter in Taiji:

· Testimonials from scientists from impressive universities and/or impressive background in species
