SHAY PERFORMS SUPERBLY ON RETURN AS BATTLING IRELAND EARN WELL DESERVED POINT

first_imgShay Given produced a solid display on his return to competitive action for Ireland in their Euro 2016 clash with Poland.Shay Given produced a typically faultless display on his return to competitive action for Ireland after a three-year sabbatical.Given delivered an assured display during Ireland’s battling 1-1 draw with Poland.Shane Long struck in injury-time to secure a precious point for Ireland that keeps the dream of qualification for EURO 2016 alive. Given could do nothing to stop an outstanding strike from Slawomir Peszko which gave Poland an early lead which stunned the Aviva.However, Ireland dominated the second-half and played some brilliant football and fully deserved a point.Seamus Coleman was blasted by RTE pundit Eamon Dunphy at half-time who said Coleman’s effort was non-existent.However, the controversial pundit conceded afterwards that Coleman was excellent in the second-half and improved hugely. Ireland face Scotland next at the Aviva in June and Given will be hoping he done enough to keep his place for that crucial encounter with the Tartan Army.SHAY PERFORMS SUPERBLY ON RETURN AS BATTLING IRELAND EARN WELL DESERVED POINT was last modified: March 29th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Aviva stadiumEuro 2016IrelandnewsShay GivensoccerSportlast_img read more

The Art of the Freeze Frame

first_imgLearn how to use the simple effect of the freeze frame to hold your image on screen and in the minds of your viewer.Top Image: The Wolf of Wall Street via Paramount PicturesWhat Is a Freeze Frame?A freeze frame halts the perceived movement in your image, effectively converting it to a still shot reminiscent of a photograph. Freeze frames are self-reflexive, so they call attention to the filmmaking process and to the filmmaker, but they are invaluable in adding emphasis, covering up for lack of footage, or creating a note of ambiguity.Thelma and Louise via MGMIn the days of shooting with film, the selected shot was optically reprinted to achieve the effect. With digital technologies, freezing your image has become as easy as tapping a few keys — so the real question becomes how and when should you use the freeze frame?Ways to Use ItFreeze frames can be used at the beginning and throughout your movie. It’s all a matter of setting the stylistic tone of your work. For example, you may want to give your title card a little extra punch as Soderbergh did in his 1998 film, Out of Sight (via Universal).Soderbergh continues his playful use of the freeze frame during the opening act of Out of Sight as a transitional device and as a way to introduce a new character (another great place to use freeze frames early in a film, especially if you are running voice over on your soundtrack). In his film, Election, Alexander Payne uses freeze frames during his character introductions for a comedic effect.Election via ParamountMartin Scorsese uses the freeze frame to great effect in films like Goodfellas, The Departed, and The Aviator, as you can see in this video compilation of Scorsese’s editing techniques. Justin Morrow includes freeze frames as one of Martin Scorsese’s influential editing techniques in this article.Freeze Frame as an EndingIt seems that the most common —and memorable — use of the freeze frame is at the end of films. Employed in this manner, the freeze frame can be a way to avoid showing gruesome details of a character’s demise and instead leave your viewers with a note of romance and ambiguity. Though many of these endings are the stuff of legend, this is your official spoiler alert.Instead of seeing the titular characters from Thelma and Louise (via MGM), plummet to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, we are left with their car hanging in mid-air, seemingly defying gravity as the two characters hang above a chasm representative of their situation both as outlaws and as rebellious women in a male-dominated world.Another famous use of the freeze frame as a substitute for a bloody finale can be found in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (via 20th Century Fox). When the two main characters are trapped and outgunned, they confront their fate head on.The freeze frame can present an opportunity to halt — and highlight — the atrocity of violence, as seen in the final frame of Gallipoli (1981). The splotch of blood on the main character’s chest echoes a shot early in the film when the same character races through the red ribbon of a finish line.Gallipoli via ParamountOne of the most famous freeze frame endings occurs in François Truffaut’s French New Wave classic, The 400 Blows. Although the final freeze frame does not suggest a violent death for the main character, Antoine Doinel, the image creates uncertainty, ambiguity, and concern for the life of Antoine.The 400 Blows via mk2 It’s not uncommon to use a freeze frame of the main character as a backdrop for conveying story information that happens after the plot of the film. Animal House (1978) uses this technique to a comic end, but the approach can have a more serious tone, as evidenced by the final freeze frame in Bloodsport (1988).Bloodsport via CannonWhile we’re considering Jean-Claude Van Damme’s involvement in the freeze frame ending, let’s not forget this classic pose from Street Fighter (1994).Street Fighter via ColumbiaThe freeze frame isn’t immune to parody, as made evident in the ending of Police Squad! (via Paramount and ABC).The freeze frame ending gives a moment of pause and consideration for your audience. Everything that preceded the final, frozen instant can take on additional dramatic weight and helps in the transformation of a seemingly ordinary film ending into a mythic one.Death Proof via The Weinstein CompanyWhat are some of your favorite freeze-frame moments? Please share in the comments below.last_img read more
