LITTLE SILVER – In a special school election held Dec. 11, voters in three boroughs approved a $17.3 million capital improvements plan for Red Bank Regional High School. The first proposal included a new roof ($4 million), renovation of existing facilities ($4.6 million) and the construction of 10 new classrooms ($7.1 million) for a price tag of $15.7 million in addition to state funding. Of the 2,186 votes cast on the first referendum question, 69 percent of the voters said yes, and 31 percent voted no. The second proposal centered on replacing Red Bank Regional’s grass football field with a multisport turf surface ($1.6 million) and upgrading the facility’s restrooms and concession stand ($730,000) for a cost of $2.3 million. Of the 2,170 votes cast on the second question. 59 percent voted yes and 40 percent voted no. Part of that presentation focused on the $4.9 million in state aid the school is expected to receive toward the plan. “I think you need to maintain the standards of the school,” Bill said. “The proposal for the artificial turf is a little bit of add-on, I think. But I can see how that ties into maintaining the infrastructure of the property.” Red Bank Regional Superintendent Louis B. Moore said the school community also reached more than 400 residents over that span, each time stressing that if the plan was not approved, the potential to cut school programming would increase and school taxes would surge. The rapid growth cut into enrollment at Red Bank Regional’s respected five academies by out-of-district tuition-paying students. Tuition revenue decreased from $4 million to $2.8 million during that time period. “The big takeaway for me, aside from the fact that both questions passed, is that both questions passed in all three towns,” said Red Bank Regional Board of Education member Frank A. Neary Jr. in a interview with The Two River Times Tuesday night. With these improvements, board member Neary said all the data and projections he and the board possess shows Red Bank Regional in a “good position for the foreseeable future.” “We have some wonderful academic programs. We also have some great specialty programs in our academies. These renovations are going to bring our facility up to speed. We have the programs, we have an incredible staff, now we’re going to have the facilities that will allow us to continue to grow. Red Bank Regional is on a roll,” Moore added. After 2023, costs are expected to drop to $12, $13 and $15 per year, respectively, school board officials said. All of their children have attended Red Bank Regional. Now their grandchildren are preparing to enter the high school, and the Hanrattys were both motivated to cast “yes” votes in Tuesday’s election. Moore said the focus of the improvement plan was always academics. According to unofficial results published Wednesday by the Monmouth County Clerk’s office, Red Bank Regional school district voters in Little Silver, Shrewsbury and Red Bank approved a $17.3 million plan for upgrades to the school’s academic and athletic facilities. The reason why, Moore said, is because enrollment is on an upward trend at the Ridge Road high school. Over the past four years, classroom space had become tight due to growing in-district enrollment. Each homeowner will have a different tax burden depending on the town they live in and the assessed value of their home. According to the school board, the average cost to Little Silver residents will be an additional $23 per year. It will be an average of $22 more in Red Bank and $24 more in Shrewsbury. Neary spent the last six months championing the improvements plan to more than 60 school district groups. Bill and Margie Hanratty have been Little Silver residents since 1978 when the U.S. Navy stationed Bill at Naval Weapons Station Earle in the Leonardo section of Middletown Township. “This was an overwhelming show of support from all three communities, and I think that’s because this is a reasonable plan that was well thought out,” Neary added. “We were clear about this from the beginning. The academic program came first,” said Moore, noting that Proposal No. 2 for the turf field could not pass if Proposal No. 1 failed. “We’ve supported Red Bank Regional for many years and we’d like it to maintain its reputation,” Margie added. “We’re not in perfect condition. And no- body knows what’s going to happen 10 or 20 years down the road, but we think for a good amount of time this is going to be a very reasonable plan. It’s not the perfect plan. But it’s a reasonable plan. And the administration and staff here can make it work,” Neary added. Residents were asked to weigh in on two questions in the voting booth.
Burak Yilmaz 1 Guangzhou Evergrande are lining up a bumper offer to take Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea target Burak Yilmaz to China.All three Premier League clubs have held a long-term interest in the free-scoring Galatasaray star, who has hit 47 league goals in 74 appearances since arriving from Trabzonspor in 2011 – as well as 10 goals in 21 Champions League outings.But now, according to Turkish newspaper Fotospor, Evergrande have made him their priority target and could be willing to double his current salary to tempt him to the far east.Former Italy captain Fabio Cannavaro is currently the manager of the Chinese side and it has been reported that he has earmarked Yilmaz as the man he wants to lead the line.That could encourage Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea to reignite their interest in time for the January transfer window despite the forward having four years left on his contract.
The History Channel aired a program called “Ape to Man” Monday evening August 7, alleging that modern science had finally pieced together the solution to the puzzle of human evolution. Although it included debunking episodes of Piltdown (11/18/2003) and Java Man (02/27/2003), the flavor of the show was that the picture of human origins has become clear because we now “know” (02/15/2002) that tool use and not brain size (12/30/2004, 11/05/2002, 07/04/2002) is the key to understanding what makes us human, and we “know” (11/05/2003, 10/20/2003, 03/07/2002, 02/15/2002) that humans emerged from Africa and not Europe (as the proud Europeans had wanted to believe, making them gullible for the Piltdown hoax). An animation, often repeated, showed a long string of transitional forms over millions of years in a lineup that the animation camera swept over in rapid succession, giving the impression of linear and slow gradual change over hundred thousands of generations. Another episode portrayed clumsy, imbecilic Neanderthalers (02/25/2005) sneaking up to a wildfire to learn the secret of the mysterious flames. Ape to Man was rebroadcast on Thursday evening Aug. 11. The History Channel advertising poster mocked the Michelangelo fresco The Creation of Man by showing the hand of God pointing to a hairy half-ape arm. Below it, a timeline purports to show 5 million years of human evolution. Brad Harrub at Apologetics Press, co-author of The Truth About Human Origins, was quick to post a rebuttal listing the inaccuracies and falsehoods in the show.Brief glimpses at this program by your faithful editor led to the perception that the writers of Ape to Man were either liars (11/19/2004), clueless (12/21/2004, 05/24/2004, 03/25/2004) or had not done their required reading assignment on Creation-Evolution Headlines (12/30/2004, 09/23/2004, 07/23/2004, 06/11/2003, 03/28/2003). The animated ape-to-man lineup, for instance, is contrary to what even the evolutionists believe (02/16/2005). They admit that the human family tree was not a Victorian picture of orthogenesis, leading in a single line from ape to man, but was a complex, branching bush of mosaics of features that are difficult to classify. Understanding this background, Ape to Man appears as unvarnished bluffing, tarnishing the credibility of the History Channel (usually one of the few watchable cable networks). Harrub will tell you everything else you need to know about this travesty of casuistry, this mockumentary that does little more than deceive the public while providing job security for fully-human but depraved actors (03/19/2003) who like to wear makeup and hair (06/10/2003) instead of clothes. Don’t show it to impressionable adults. They might not be as bright as Brother Neanderthal (see 10/01/2004, 05/19/2005, 03/27/2003). This seems to be Evolution Promotion Week on the cable channels. The Science Channel is preaching molecules to man evolution in back-to-back specials, complete with the usual weird avant-garde music and dreary British narration in deep baritone, 500 million years ago, as the Uth coooled, bluff bluff, the first life emerged, bluffity bluff bluff, eyes evolved, blah blah, dinosaurs sprouted wings and took to the skies, and so on, and so forth, zzzzzzzzz. What is this, a campaign to soften the opposition to evolutionary mythology? If so, it’s not working. Actually, it is standard daily repertoire on all the “non-fiction” channels. It hasn’t worked since before TV was invented, or else the polls wouldn’t be showing the majority believing in creation. Viewers seem to understand that movie technique can’t substitute for evidence, common-sense and reasonable interpretation of the observable facts. They seem to sense when storytelling is being passed as truth. Any sufficiently financed doxology to evolutionary biology is indistinguishable from tragic fiction. Unless they are already Charlie Church fundamentalists, most people watch it for entertainment, or as a cure for insomnia.(Visited 13 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0

No matter how great your writing might be, heavy dialogue scenes can begin to feel boring. Here’s how to keep things interesting on those longer takes.Recently I posted an article about directing scenes with minimal dialogue, and this article is essentially focused on the exact opposite challenge – heavy dialogue scenes. While shooting a one or two page scene with lots of dialogue might be fairly straightforward, things get much more complicated when you get into lengthier page counts.For instance, when you’re shooting a conversation between two people sitting at the dinner table… If you were to cover it in the traditional sense (a wide and two close-ups) you’d run out of steam after a minute or two in the editing room pretty quickly, and things will likely start to get pretty boring. However, if you can follow at least one of the tips on this list, you’ll be in much better shape.Move the CameraA roaming camera (whether handheld or on a steadicam) will always hold the viewers attention better than a static shot. Just as it’s important that you choose the right type of camera movement for your scene, it’s also important to choose the right movement for your audience. With long dialogue scenes, always look for ways that you can move that camera, whether it’s panning back and forth between your actors, circling your talent, etc. to keep your audience visually stimulated.Move Your ActorsIf you’re hellbent on no camera movement at all, either because it doesn’t work with the mood you’re setting or it’s technically impossible, then consider moving your actors instead. Say for instance you’re shooting the dinner scene as described above, and it’s six pages long. Why not have one of the actors get up at the two -age mark and walk to the kitchen to get something? Whether the other character follows or not, you now have a new background and new angles on both characters and have subsequently added more dimension to the scene.Cross the LineThose of you that went to film school have had it drilled in your heads to never ‘cross the line’ (which is of course the imaginary axis the camera sits on), but rules are made to be broken. Assuming you don’t want to use a roaming camera and want your actors to stay static, crossing the line is a great way to completely change the perception of a scene by simply capturing reverse coverage. If there’s a beat in your scene where the tone or pace changes, consider using a cutaway shot to bring you across the line and then shoot the remainder of the scene from the other side. If nothing else, it will keep things interesting and let the viewer subtly know a change has occurred.And there really is no better way to understand the craft of shooting a heavy dialogue scene than by watching great films by some of the masters of dialogue. Filmmakers like Quentin Tarantino and Richard Linklater are notorious for their use of dialogue, and both employ a variety of techniques to keep the viewer stimulated. In particular, I recommend watching Inglourious Basterds and Before Sunrise (by each respective auteur) for some inspiration.Here are a few more tips and techniques for filming dialogue-heavy scenes from around the web, some of which touch on the points mentioned above and some that offer additional approaches. First, from Tom Antos:Here’s a video from Cinecom.net that features some good behind-the-scenes footage of a crew working with a dolly to film a dialogue-driven scene:Got any on-set tips for your fellow filmmakers? What are your favorite dialogue-driven movies? Let us know in the comments below.
Yesterday I sent my newsletter to 25,000 people. The subject of this newsletter was how I inherited my work ethic from my Mom. I told the story about two readers of this blog who asked me what they needed to do to stay motivated, and I wrote about some of the questions I asked them to help them find their motivation.A number of readers emailed me back after reading the newsletter asking me for the list of questions that I asked. A few were brave enough to suggest that they actually needed those questions.Here is a list of questions that may help you find motivation.Who is counting on you? Start with the small circle, your spouse, your children, your immediate family. Work your way outwards into the larger circles that include all the communities that count on you in some way, large or small. If you have children, what kind of example do you want to be for them?What duties and obligations do you owe the people you love and the people you care about? You do have a duty to these people. You are obligated to take a certain set of actions on behalf of these people. How are you going to fulfill these obligations?Who do you want to be? How do you live your real purpose? Maybe you are here as the result of some cosmic accident and none of this means anything to you, worm food. But maybe while you are here, you have an opportunity to become what you want to become. Who do you want to be? What are you here to do? What do you want your contribution to be?Are you proud of the decisions you are making about what to do with your exceedingly limited time? The clock is mercilessly ticking away. Your time is limited. Are your actions aligned with this reality? As an outsider, would I be able to tell what is important to you by the way you use your time?What do you want your future regrets to be? Do you want to regret how you spent your time? Do you want to regret neglecting the most important relationships in your life? Do want to regret not trying harder, not living your real purpose? The actions you take now—and the actions you don’t take now—determine your future regrets. You are literally making this choice every day.Anthony Robbins can’t motivate you. I can’t motivate you. Only that little voice in your head can give you the motivation, and only the urgency created by spending time with questions like these can spark the fire in your belly.If you spend time here, if you focus here, if you connect to the answers to questions like these, you can cure yourself of a lack of motivation very quickly. If you want to stay motivated, you need to look no further than what’s inside your heart right now.
