By Aaron Skirboll

After the fantastic Revolution, a no longer so wonderful age of lawlessness passed off England. Crime ran rampant, and highwaymen, thieves, and prostitutes governed the land. Execution via putting usually punished the smallest infractions, and rip-roaring tales of fearless criminals proliferated, giving delivery to a brand new medium: the newspaper. In 1724, housebreaker Jack Sheppard—a “pocket Hercules,” his small body choked with muscle—finally met the hangman. road singers sang ballads in regards to the Cockney burglar simply because no legal might carry him. each one extra mind-blowing than the final, his ultimate jailbreak took him via six successive locked rooms, and then he shimmied down blankets from the criminal roof to the road less than. earlier than Sheppard swung, he gave an account of his existence to a author within the crowd. Daniel Defoe stood within the shadow of the day’s literati—Swift, Pope, Gay—and had performed demanding time himself for sedition and financial ruin. He observed how felony corrupted the negative. They got here out thieves, yet he got here out a journalist. Six months later, the writer of Robinson Crusoe and Moll Flanders coated one other loss of life on the striking tree. Jonathan Wild appeared each piece the brute—body lined in scars from dagger, sword, and gun, bald head patched with silver plates from a fractured skull—and he had all yet invented the double-cross. He cultivated younger thieves, profited from their paintings, then grew to become them in for his reward—and their execution. yet one guy refused to play his online game. Sheppard didn’t take orders from this self-proclaimed “thief-taker general,” nor might he hawk his loot via Wild’s fences.

Variation im Zeich(n)en der Bilder. Einflüsse von Animation - download pdf or read online

By Sarah Dombrink

Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2014 im Fachbereich Medien / Kommunikation - Journalismus, Publizistik, notice: 1,0, Freie Universität Berlin (Politik- und Sozialwissenschaft: Institut für Publizistik- und Kommunikationswissenschaft), Sprache: Deutsch, summary: In den letzten Jahren lassen sich im Dokumentarfilm vermehrt Tendenzen finden, Animation und Medien- oder net 2.0 Archivmaterial in die Darstellung einzubinden. Eines der prominentesten Beispiele ist hier "Waltz with Bashir", auf den später noch eingegangen wird. So wie Animation im Dokumentarfilm schon als Ästhetik verbreitet Anwendung findet, ist die Praxis Archivbilder aus Medien- oder Privatarchiven zu verwenden ebenfalls schon länger etabliert. Der getrennte Gebrauch von diesen ästhetischen Mitteln ist additionally keine Neuerung, aber in der Zusammenführung von Animation, gefilmtem fabric und den, vor allem über soziale Netzwerke und Portale wie YouTube oder herkömmliche Medien verbreiteten Aufnahmen, als bereits mediatisierte Elemente, ist eine neue dokumentarische Darstellungsform entstanden die bisher wenig betrachtet wurde.
"The eco-friendly Wave", ein Dokumentarfilm von Ali Samadi Ahadi über die Aufstände während der Präsidentschaftswahlen im Iran 2009, greift unter anderem chanced on photos der Grünen Revolution aus dem internet 2.0 auf. In einer Kombination von aufgenommenen Bildern interviewter Beteiligter, animierten Erlebnissen aus Blogeinträgen, Handyvideos der Demonstranten, Twitter-Meldungen und Medienarchivmaterial umkreist die Erzählung die Vorgänge der niedergeschlagenen Revolution. Die Kurzdokumentation "Reality 2.0" beschäftigt sich in nachgezeichneten Amateurvideos und freier Animation mit der (medialen) Rezeption des Drogenkriegs in Mexiko. Diese beiden letztgenannten Dokumentarfilme bedienen sich neben Animation, gefilmtem und weiteren Materialien, auch den Aufnahmen aus dem net 2.0 und (herkömmlichen) Medienarchiven, um die jeweiligen gesellschaftspolitischen Konflikte darzustellen. Mit der größeren Verbreitung und Zugänglichkeit zum net wächst das Spektrum der von und mit dem Publikum darin geteilten Inhalte exponentiell und eröffnet ein Archiv in neuer Größenordnung und shape. Wobei der user-generated content material die Grenzen von öffentlich und privat vermehrt verwischen lässt. Diese Dokumentarfilme greifen bei der Darstellung eines Ereignisses mit der Integration mediatisierter Archivbilder aus dem internet 2.0 auf diese Weise ein medial-gesellschaftliches und -soziales Phänomen auf.
