Before technologies and social media, fans could wrote just letters and sent to celebrities or they had just autograph or if they was so lucky fans if they had a photo with celebrity. Twitter is known as one of the most popular social media in our days. Social media is like removed layer between celebrities and their fans. 

Now, most of the people are using Twitter where they can communicate with celebrities and sometimes celebrities interact with individuals fans. In our days, it’s became more easier because you don’t need to wait for a long time for the response. You can follow for your idol and it will be so unexpectedly if your favorite celebrity will follow you back.

I think that the best thing that can happen is when your idol is follow you back. I know that some of my friends tweeted for One Direction/Justin Bieber and some celebrities from the soap opera but never got retweet or followed back but I searched 
 10 Celebreties most likely to follow you back:
 10.Ellen DeGeneres/ 
 9. Justin Bieber/
 8.Lady Gaga/
 7.Luke Bryan/
 6.Stephen Fry/
 5.Gordon Ramsay/
 4.Britney Spears/
 3.Tom Cruise/
 2.Cody Simpson/

More about ‘’celebrity will follow you back’’ Laura Caro, a 15-yeard-old ‘’Belieber’’. Remembers the exact day Justin Bieber followed her on twitter. Jan.20,2013. "I remember perfectly what I was doing. I was getting ready to go out, when suddenly I got a notification that Justin had tweeted, so I immediately went on Twitter and started tweeting like crazy … asking him for a follow.»

Caro continued tweeting at Bieber, but she wasn't getting a follow. Then, it happened: "Suddenly, I got a notification, and there it was: 'Justin Bieber followed you,'" she said. "I ran to my sister crying and speechless. I told my mom and she started crying with me because she truly saw how happy it made me. I will never forget that day.»

My Mash-Up project is called ‘Swan Lake’. This project is fair use because I give all credit to the original pictures, artist, music and I haven't made any money from it. I’m not saying that it’s my own material. I compared ballet dancers with swans. The story is about a girl who was alone and when the guy saw her they fell in love with each other and flew away to warmer countries.

Ballet Artist: Sergey Polunin and Anastasia Volochkova

Film Genres - Borrowing & Stealing

Plagiarism is a very common thing in our time. Everyone does not notice that after an evening of information, they begin to use many of the sayings of the people who created it. And they don't give this value, but it is plagiarism. Nowadays, it is impossible to live without plagiarism. All humans are selfish and they can use someone else's information for their own intentions.
I learned a lot of information from the two readings and film that we had to see. I formed the question: so if all are greedy and we can't use someone else's ideas, then how can we survive in this world? Everything is built on plagiarism. For example, when someone creates something and a different person wants to use and creates the same idea, he just renamed this idea. Then you can say that all DJs are plagiarists because they take a song and remix it. So all things in the world are simply meaningless, because the main idea of each thing is the same.

Someone's attitude towards plagiarism depends on the individual. For example, someone who patents his work in the first moment and wants to tell everyone that this is only his work and idea.
Someone came up with the new idea and patent it. That person will be comfortable if someone takes the example.
Personally, my opinion is that if you use someone else's idea, it's okay. I think that all people should be happy if their idea is used and that this idea works, and it is very clever that he created such a useful thing for humanity. In his place, I would be happy if my idea was used in the knowledge of mankind. Because we all don't live forever. If you keep your idea in compressed hands and don't want to tell anyone your idea, it would be boring to yourself that you can't talk with someone about this idea. If you share you could give a piece of yourself to humanity. Plagiarism is just chaos that existed, exists and will exist. Plagiarism is a word that carries a very high energy. I believe people need to take it easy because plagiarism can not be stopped.

Film History Project#2

Kiss Me Deadly is one of the ultimate films of the 1950s because the film has found a cineast's allure ever since its release. The French almost immediately recognized in it-indeed, agreed upon it - the reverence of a prophetic talisman, evil, mysterious, almost a warning for the cavalier hipness it dares to assume. Also, considered by many film critics this film was finishing a classical era of noir movies.
Because by the mid-fifties film noir is coming to end and after was popular new style of crime genre. For the screenplay was taken Mickey Spillane’s novel about detective-Mike Hammer. As in the novel dealt with the drug, it’s officially considered unfit for the film adaptation. Screenwriter Albert Beziraydes completely changed the story after problem with drugs and came up with a hot nuclear ‘’briefcase’’ and catastrophic finale.

At the time, the movie has a painful impression to American audiences .
Film critics respectable American publications ignored ‘’Kiss Me Deadly’’ as low-standard and in Britain the film didn’t come out in the rental ( to the cinema)
Only the french critics admitted frantic whirl of movie expressionism. Francois Truffaut and Claude Chabrol saw in Aldrich’s another confirmation that the original artistic statement perhaps even in a commercial cinema.

The principal elements of Tech-noir characters are almost invariably melodramatic types, while the settings both represent the technological problem the hero must face and serve the interests of pathetic fallacy, thus they are most often variations of the mythological wasteland. The plot is often reducible to matters of power and is almost always expressed in terms of violent action, but may also be complicated by reversals, misdirections, and revelations that are more likely to be related to the injudicious use of technology than to character development.

1) Before now, to watch a film you had to go to the cinema and all the people were waiting for this moment as an event and this wasn't the usual kids entertainment like an our time. Now old people don't attend the cinema because they don't like crimes, science fiction and all this new staff but now children and teens go to the cinema to watch all the new movies. Now, we have Internet, which has reduced the level of popularity of cinema  because they can find what they need on the Internet. Between the Internet and Television all people become too lazy to gather in the cinema, they would prefer to lie on the couch.

2)I think that with every generation all people change their minds. They want different movies so they don't like old movies which their parents like. They want new special effects, new conflicts and new stories. When there was a silent black and white film people were not even aware that humanity would be to invent color films but now it's common. All film production improved from year to year and they want to be better then the other production so they want to get a new technology to make movies better. All director know what the audience needs so they make films with different stories. Audience don't think about what was behind the scenes. They just need a bewitching story.

Film History Presentation.

I chose the filmmaker - Dziga Vertov. He was a soviet director, founder of documentary film. Vertov worked in cinema verite style (it is a style of documentary filmmaking) to unveil the truth or highlight subjects hidden behind crude reality.
Dziga Vertov was against literature, games, actors, studio shots and the scenery in the film because he thought that they were not accurate representations. 
I decided to analyze his film, Cinema Eye (1924), a documentary about the new state of the USSR. This film is comprised of various true accounts of life in the Soviet Union, united by the theme of "Life by spontanity." Much attention is paid to children and their pioneering organizations, but also focus around other subjects like elephants, tuberculosis, asylums, and physical labor. The shooting took place in Moscow and the surrounding regions. I found Cinema Eye to be a very interesting historical perspective on that time period.
