Transcript of A Hero's Journey

A Hero's Journey
Stage 2: Initiation
The Road of Trials:
Stage 3: Return
Refusal of the Return:
Film Terminology!!
Stage 1: Departure
The Call to Adventure:
Refusal of the Call
The future hero often refuses to accept the Call to Adventure. The refusal may stem from a sense of duty, an obligation, a fear, or insecurity.
The future hero is given notice that his or her life is going to change.
The Beginning of the Adventure:
This is the point where the hero actually begins the adventure, leaving the known limits of his or her world and venturing into an unknown and dangerous realm where the rules and limits are unknown.
The road of trials is a series of tests, tasks, or challenges that the hero must undergo as part of the hero's transformation. Often the hero fails one or more of the these tests, which often occur in threes.
The Experience with Unconditional Love:
During the Road of Trials, the hero experiences unconditional love and support from a friend, mentor or family. This love often drives the hero to continue on the journey, even when the hero doubts him/herself.
The Ultimate Boon:
The goal of the quest is achieved. All the previous steps serve to prepare and purify the person for this step.
When the goal of the adventure has been accomplished, the hero may refuse to return with the boon or gift, either because the hero doubts the return will bring change, or because the hero prefers to stay in a better place rather than return to a normal life of pain and trouble.
The Magic Flight:
The hero experiences adventure and perhaps danger as he or she returns to life as it was before the adventure.
Rescue from Without
Just as the hero may need guides and assistants on the quest, oftentimes he or she must have powerful guides and rescuers to bring him or her back to everyday life, especially if the hero has been wounded or weakened by the experience. Or, perhaps the hero doesn't realize that it is time to return, that he or she can return, or that others need his or her gift.
The Crossing, or Return Threshold:
At this final point in the adventure, the hero must retain the wisdom gained on the quest, integrate that wisdom, into his or her previous life, and perhaps decide how to share the wisdom with the rest of the world.

Hero Definition Essay
Alfred North Whitehead once said “True courage is not the brutal force of vulgar heroes but the firm resolve of virtue and reason.” To be a true hero you don't have to have physical strength just courage to do what you think should be done. To be a hero you don't have to be the smartest person, you don't have to be the strongest, or bravest. You just have to step up and do the right thing in a time of need. A hero can be anyone, even a student in a class. It does not take something big, or someone famous a action that makes someone a hero could be as simple as saying “Hi” to someone. “Our greatest heroes are ordinary people doing extra ordinary things.” (poster in the front of class.) This is what I believe a hero is. You don't have to be well known or anything just do what should be done when no one else will do anything. However to be a true hero it takes being humble, courage, does not do a heroic deed just for the fame, and is noble.

Initially, a hero is someone that goes their own way even if someone else does not like it. Homer's dad wanted him to go work in the coal mines (just like everyone one else was in the city that they lived in) instead of build rockets like Homer wanted. His father had pushed him and pushed him to go but he never gave into him. “You are going to work in the coal mines.” (October Sky movie Homer's father to him.) A hero is someone who helps other people get to the place in which they are going by going with them, and encouraging them not to give up.` Someone that thinks of the best way to do something that could save someone’s life could be considered a hero. A hero is also someone who could have a hard time with some things but still has the strength to encourage others that things are going to turn out just fine.



In equally important, Ana is a hero because she fought the cancer and still gave people hope. “You make everyone feel that things are going to be okay.”(George: Ana's husband page 50.) Not only was Ana a hero but so was Deomonte. In “Love Triumphs” by Ellen Barry, Deomonte is a hero by helping those toddlers get to safety in Hurricane Katrina. “A 6-year old boy walking down the road, holing a 5-month old, surrounded by five toddlers who followed him around as if he was their leader.” (page 19.) A hero is also someone who never gives up. In the poem “A Man” by Nina Cassian the man loses his arm but never gives up even though he can't do as much as everyone else. “From that moment on, he set himself to do everything with twice as much enthusiasm.” (page 10.) In the “Odyssey” by Homer the main character is a hero because he thought about the best way to not only save himself but also his men from the Cyclopes. “I considered the best way escaping, and saving myself, and my men from death.” (page 37.)

A bad hero is someone who complains about everything and has to have their way. In “Moco Limping” by David Nava Monreal, the man was not a hero because he did not like the dog and put him down because of who the dog was “I wanted him to be the first dog howling in the pack, the leader, the brutal hunter that broke through the woods with thunder.” (page 13.) A hero is not someone who only cares about themselves. Someone who is not a hero is someone who gives up when things get to hard for them. A hero is not someone who would leave someone else to do get there on their own.
Consequently, it does not always mean the best person is a hero. It may turn out that when there is an action needed to happen the best person steps down and an ordinary person steps up, as stated in the first paragraph “Our greatest heroes are ordinary people doing extra ordinary things.” So no matter what happened to you, where you come from, or what you have done, it only matters if you did the right thing in the time of need and did not do it from the fame. That is a true hero.

Shot: a single piece of film, uninterrupted by cuts
*Watch the following clip from Moneyball and count how many shots there are!
Long Shot (LS): a shot from some distance (also called a full shot). A long shot of a person shows the full body. It may suggest the isolation or vulnerability of the character.
*Now, you draw one! on pg. 63
Medium Shot (MS): The most common shot. The camera seems to be a medium distance from the object being filmed. A medium shot shows a person from the waist up.
* Now, you draw one!
(pg. 63)
Close Up (CU): The image being shot takes up at least 80% of the frame.
*Now, you try!
(pg.63)
Extreme Close Up (ECU): The image being shot is a part of the whole, such as an eye or a hand.
*Watch this clip and choose one ECU, then draw it on p.g 63 and determine author purpose!
Eye Level: A shot taken from a normal height, that is, the character's eye level; 90-95% of the shots seen are eye level because it is the most natural angle.
High angle: The camera is above the subject. This angle usually has the effect of making the subject look smaller than normal, giving him or her the appearance of being weak, powerless, or trapped.
*Watch the following clip and choose one shot that is at a high angle. Then, determine the effect it has on the subject featured.
Low angle: The camera shoots the subject from below. This angle usually has the effect of making the subject look larger than normal, and therefore, strong, powerful, or threatening.
ANGLES!!
Lighting!!
High Key: The scene is flooded with light, creating a bright and open-looking scene.
(usually sit-coms or television shows light this way.)
Low Key: The scene is flooded with shadows and darkness, creating suspense or suspicion.
Neutral: Neither high key nor low key - even lighting in the shot.

Fifteen pound turkey basted in butter and stuffed with seasoned breading filled both the house and our stomachs with the sense of satisfied slumber. 22 family members filled the various spaces of our home with sweet sounds: laughter, muttering, story-telling and humorous anecdotes. Lastly, the sibling tradition of marathon movie watching this time took place with The Batman series - all three connecting not only the trilogy but ourselves as well!
