Firstly, it is the task of public channels to be objective However, Christian broadcasting companies get enough monetary support to be on the public channel Still, there are enough alternatives for Christian television The EO (Evangelic Broadcaster) is able to reach the minimum of 150.000 paying members Christian television programs on Dutch public channels Geertje van Raak Monetary support "Mediapriest" Roderick Vönhogen On the three public channels, Christian programs are broadcast regularly Objectivity Three public channels (NPO 1, NPO2, NPO3) Commercial channels Regional/local channels Public media services have to offer a program that is "balanced, multifaceted, varied and of high quality and is also characterized by a great diversity in form and content" (Dutch Media Law article 2.1) Public channels need to offer a varied, objective and independent perspective Despite the fact that the monetary support is there, there are plenty of alternatives Conclusion Works Cited Alternatives 13 regional broadcasters More than 300 local channels Although Christian broadcasting companies have enough monetary support to broadcast on the public channel, they seem out of place amongst secular television shows, because public channels should be objective and have no religious influence, and there are enough small channels for those who still want to watch religious television.
Transcript: When you are editing a horror film, you need to make sure there's some use of jump cuts, as this will create tension towards the audience. You also need to think about the use of sound, and whether it fits in with the scene and that you haven't just put some random sounds over the clip. If you have re-filmed the voice in a studio, you will need to make sure that it fits with the movement of the person's mouth and that it is synced correctly. We will use Final Cut Pro to edit our production. We can use the shotgun microphone on its own, or we can attach the microphone to the boom pole. If you are filming outdoors, then its best to use a dead cat, as this will act as a windshiled. Lighting Skills Knowing the rules of light, when dealing with photography, you can use it to your advantage. For example, in a lot of horror films, there are scenes where it is very dark, underexposed, this creates tension and suspense for the audience. We can achieve this by changing the shutter speed and the apature. Also the use of coloured gels can be effective, as this can also make the audience feel unnerved. For lighting in a horror film, there needs to be darkness, you can achieve this by limitting your light sources. You should have harsh lighting in a horror film as this will create a violent and also ambiguous effect, which is good for a horror film, so you don't want to use soft boxes or anything that will soften the light. Editing Skills Filming Skills When you are filming, you need to make sure that your location is suitable for what is happening in the scene and that the lighting is also suitable. If you are filming indoors, this is good as you can control the light more then outdoors. When you are filming, you need to think about the mise-en-scene, camera shots, angles and movements, for example you are best to use a dolly and not your hands when you want a partciular movement, as if you are to use your hands, it will come out rather shaky. To achieve smooth shots when using the dolly you will need to make sure that the dolly is placed on smooth flooring or if you don't have a dolly, you can buy some furniture sliders, you can then stick them onto a tripod and then you'll be able to move smoothly on carpet. If you have a dolly, then you can place a piece of plywood down onto the floor and then move the dolly on the plywood and the shots will be smooth. According to Jason Blum, if you can tell the story in a traditional way, you shouldn't tell it in a found footage way, this is his number one rule. His second rule is that the person with the camera has to have a reason for filming what they are filming. His third rule is that 'you must have a plan, e.g. you can't just hand your actor a camera'. In other words you need to explain to them what it is they have to do, for instance, you still need to people to act scared and genuine. We will try to achieve the found footage effect without the audience feeling ill, by having some of the found footage scenes filmed on a tripod, so the shots are stable and other scenes will be filmed handheld so it looks more like found footage. We will also use a stabilizer for the found footage scenes, this will seem like someone is holding the camera by itself, although it won't seem as shaky as a handheld camera, it will seem more stable, so again, the audience won't feel sick. Sound Equipment This tutorial is very descriptive on how to use final cut pro and simple to understand as the man goes through each step on how to use it quite slowly. For this tutorial, it is a shorter video compared to the video above, and it is slightly easier to follow and understand as the man speaking doesn't talk a lot, but he gives you step by step information on how to use final cut. These two videos will help us to edit our production. This is one video on YouTube that explains how to use coloured gels. The man in the video explains that you can literally just clip a coloured gel to the 'barn doors' of the light and it will change the colour of the light. However, if you have an LED light with different gels, then you can just change the colour by clipping it onto the light. Technical Research How to do Found Footage These are the instructions for the H4n with the shotgun microphone.

Transcript: Religiosity is associated with expectations for marriage and divorce by young single adults and adolescent (Ellison, Burdette and Glenn 2011; Kapinus and Pellerin 2008). Specifically, within the United States, there is a density of religious networking that encourages positive life choices and relationships (Smith 2003). Conclusion Data and Methods Church attendance is associated with a reduction in perceived barriers to marriage (Burdette, Haynes and Ellison 2012), Conceptualize Because of the innate function of religion in a society, political front-runners, community leaders and concerned social leaders alike encourage marriage as a social institution to be saved, and in doing so, saving the tool of religious and moral transfer (Brotherson and Duncan 2004; Ogland and Hinojosa 2012). Religiosity's Effect on Views of Matrimony Questions? Next time... -Stronger scale Implications - As the definition of marriage continues to evolve, we know strength levels of religious affiliation impact it's evolution. Contributions - To the study of the relationship between religion and marriage. - To existing studies on the social factors involved in opinion development. Future Research - Use specific affiliations Hypothesis:There is a positive relationship between a person’s religiosity and their views on marriage. Data and Methods Theory - General Social Survey, 1988 I propose that self-reported highly religious individuals will have a higher regard for marriage as a union. Discussion Result (Linear Regression) - Response rate: 77.3% - Sample Size: 1481 The two concepts in this study are religiosity and marital views. Religiosity - independent variable is defined as the individuals own perception of their strength in their religious affiliation, whatever it may be. Marital views - dependent variable is defined an individual’s personal regards of marriage as a union in society. Prior Research 2 out of 5 hypothesis were supported Strengths and Weaknesses

Transcript: Wide shots are used to provide a view of the whole setting. They're often used to shoot dance routines in pop music videos. Establishing shots are also common, making the audience aware of the location and often used within narrative videos. Typical equipment used when shooting album and poster covers. The Nikon D7000 is a recommended camera. 17-50mm lens are useful because it has a wide aperture, which means it works well in dark scenes, and has image stabilization to ensure hand held images are sharp Tripods are useful for both the ancillary and main task. The tripod can be used to get birds eye shots or held by the actor to look like they're filming themselves. External lighting can be used, often for portraits or still-life photos. Light modifiers can create many different 'moods'. The Umbrella creates a soft light on a large area. A Soft box creates a soft light source that can be controlled, allowing a models face to be lit up but the background stay black, unlike the umbrella which would light the whole set. DSLR's are recommended for filming music videos because you can control the depth of field. Focus is important for actors that are moving and performing. High priced DSLR's have auto focus at a fast speed. The recommended sound levels for music is -18db to -22db. Having the sound levels higher can risk distorting and peaking the audio so I'll most likely stick to these levels. Technical Research Close ups are popularly used in music videos to convey the artists face and expressions, particularly when lip syncing. It's also commonly used on women as a way to portray seduction and objectification of women. YouTube can play videos in HD (1080p) when the videos are filmed on HD cameras
