Nature of time in film based on examples of ”Rashomon”(1951), ”Interstellar”(2014) and “Memento”(2000)

As filmmakers we can present the time in any way we wish to and it can be used for the benefit of our film.

Earwax, Non-Stupid Grad School Applications, and How to be the Best Bott's Bean

Dear UBC, U of T and Ryerson University,

Writing grad school applications has a wonderful way of making you want to kill yourself. No I don’t mean because you’re thinking of all the money you just spent on your undergrad, all the debt you already have racked up slowly eating away at your Alphagetti insides, all the loan applications you’ll have to fill out again, or even the fact that grad school will likely mean digging your way deep under the Misty Mountains to set up your paper writing hovel for the next two years. 592 more words
