Hey Everyone! For this week's reflective response, I'll be talking to you about one of my favorite shows at the moment, "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is about a team lead by Phil Coulson, and consists of combat specialist Grant Ward, the Pilot Melinda May, the biochemist Jemma Simmons, the engineer Leo Fitz, and Skye, the computer hacker. This team, is part of an organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D., or Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division. They protect the civilians from "the weirder world" of Aliens and strange threats to Earth and the people who live in it. Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is comedic, interesting, but also full of suspense and action. But how does this specifically relate to media? Well being that it's full of suspense and action, they need to get shots and effects to make the audience feel the suspense! They have helicopter shots, LOTS of dolly shots, crane shots, tracking shots (sideway movement), and much more! These types of shots make it much more interesting to watch, as opposed to just a still shot. To learn how to create some of these shots using a tripod, click here to be linked to a video that shows you how. Another thing is the audio. In their dialogue scenes, their audio is really clean and clear. They also have great nat sounds too! Also, they have pretty cool special effects like holographic technology and their aliens! The first season of this show has just been put on Netflix not too long ago, so if you have Netflix and want to check it out you can watch it there. Well, that's it for my reflective response! Thanks for reading! You can watch the trailer for the first season of Marve's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. below! Bye!
