My personal enjoyment with animation has inspired me to write this essay, pertaining to animation. Since I was a child I have been fascinated with cartoons; from when they started out to be black and white, and until now with full colour and computer effects. To better perceive what my personal feelings about animation are, I must first discuss in full detail, a general overview of how animators bring traditional animation alive with motion. Animation seems like a smooth movement of drawn seque

The Adaptation of Romeo Juliet
The Adaptation of Romeo Juliet William Shakespeare used his remarkable talent to delight his audiences for over 400 years. Of his many splendid plays, perhaps none is more popular than “Romeo and Juliet”, the timeless tale of a pair of star-crossed lovers and their family strife. There have been many movie adaptations of this world’s most tragic love affair, but none had brought out the true passion of the story as successfully as Baz Luhrmann’s 1996 “William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet”.
