Camera Arriving at the Station: Cinematic Memory as Cultural Memory  [PDF]
Russell J. A. Kilbourn
Societies , 2013, DOI: 10.3390/soc3030316
Abstract: This paper explores the modern metropolis as an ironically concrete metaphor for the collective memory and the mourning of cinema’s passing, as it—the “city”—is digitally constructed in two recent, auteur-directed, special effects-driven blockbuster films, Inception and Hugo. The modern city, and mass media, such as the cinema, as well as modes of mass transport, especially the train, all originate in the 19th century, but come into their own in the early 20th century in their address to a subject as the mobilised citizen-consumer who, as Anne Friedberg makes clear, is also always a viewer. Additionally, as Barbara Mennel has recently shown, the advent in Europe of trains and time zones, in their transformation of modern time and space, paved the way for cinema’s comparably cataclysmic impact upon modern subjectivity in its iconic reproduction of movement within illusory 3D space. Both films, thus, in their different ways employ cinematic remediation as a form of cultural memory whose nostalgia for cinema’s past is rendered with the latest digital effects, hidden in plain sight in the form of subjective memories (as flashback) and dreams. While a version of this reading has been advanced before (at least for Hugo), this paper goes further by connecting each film’s status as remediated dream-memory to its respective dependence upon the city as a post-cinematic three-dimensional framework within which locative and locomotive desires alike determine a subject whose psyche is indistinguishable from the cityscape that surrounds him.
Denawit – Hartenberg Convention Applied to Cinematic Analyze for Sesarm Lynxmotion SSC-32 Industrial Robot

Journal of Computer Science and Control Systems , 2009,
Abstract: In this paper we made the cinematic analyze of the Lynxmotion RIOS SSC-32 indutrial robot, and we show how to calculate the trasnformation matrix according to the Denawit – Hartenberg. The Denawit – Hartenberg convention has the effect of codification of the influence of the presence of the cinematic couple in the structure of the industrial robot.
Unheard Screams And Silent Acceptance: Modern Indian Cinematic Representations Of Subaltern Women  [cached]
Rajiv Kannan Menon
Wide Screen , 2009,
Abstract: In India, though it is easy to associate subalternity with the lowest socioeconomic classes, social castes, and peasantry, social expectations of women allow for the presence of subalternity in all classes. Theorists of subaltern studies have noted that gendered subalternity is particularly complex, as often, the restraints of gender transcend class, allowing for subalternity to exist outside of the lowest socioeconomic sections of society. Since subaltern historiography has been so influential in modern Indian cultural production, it is no surprise that recent Indian films have actively grappled with the complex nature of gendered subalternity. This paper examines Rajnesh Domalpalli’s Vanaja, Adoor Gopalakrishnan’s Naalu Pennungal, and Deepa Mehta’s Water to express the ways that recent cinematic productions have actively demonstrated the social construction of gendered subalternity and the ways in which this social position is enforced through constant oppression and violent humiliation. It explores the way that this recent trend in Indian cinema is derived from Mahasweta Devi’s dramatic writing, which established a paradigm for the translation of subaltern historiography into performance. This reading demonstrates that social factors collude across classes to construct the position of the subaltern woman, a pattern that reoccurs throughout these cinematic texts. This social trend demonstrates that subalternity does not exist without the influence of those with social power, and these individuals actively enforce the restrictions associated with this status.
A Cinematic Lens on Talent Development in Piano Prodigies: Considerations for Positive Psychology  [PDF]
Grant J. Rich
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2012.312A171

This article examines talent development in piano prodigies through a case study of the life of Australian pianist David Helfgott as depicted in the film Shine. Utilizing theory from positive psychology, especially Csikszentmihalyi’s flow theory of motivation and optimal experience, and his sociocultural systems model of creativity, Helfgott’s development as a musical prodigy, his subsequent psychological challenges, and his ultimate psychological resilience are detailed. This case of Helfgott serves as a cinematic lens through which to explore optimal talent development more broadly. Thus, this article also makes refer- ence to other cinematic depictions of prodigies, as well as to autobiographical and biographical source materials from other talented musicians. Implications for the optimal development of talented musicians are discussed.

Cinematic Forced Atonement, 1960-2000: The Masculine Gaze and Violence Against Female Prostitutes
Heather Griffiths
Sociation Today , 2010,
Abstract: Content analysis is used to examine the representation of prostitutes in film between 1960 and 2000 in order to describe the forced atonement of deviant characters. Consistently across all four decades, the film prostitute is subject to a forced atonement, victimized by one or more abusive situations as a prerequisite to her transformation from criminal (prostitute) to non-criminal (occurring in thirty-three out of thirty-eight movies). This finding is significant because (1) cinematic depictions of predominately female deviance consistently use forced atonement to resolve female deviance and (2) when male characters use violence to punish women for having sex outside of marriage, the message is sent that female sexuality may be controlled with violence
"Two Roads to Middle Earth": Comparing Visualization of J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings and Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings Cinematic Trilogy  [cached]
Jennifer Grek Martin
Dalhousie Journal of Interdisciplinary Management , 2010, DOI: 10.5931/djim.v6i1.32
Abstract: When comparing a much-loved novel to a cinematic adaptation, many people will say, “the book was better.” Even so, some of the same people remember scenes from the movie more vividly. Why? Building on Martin Barker’s (2006) study of audience visualization, this paper examines Peter Jackson’s film adaptation of J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings through DVD “making-of documentaries,” and compares Jackson’s cinematic vision with Tolkien’s original work. The nature of film means adapting a textual work relies more on maintaining certain essential qualities of the original story, rather than a “page by page” rendering. Film may solidify a reader’s visualization of these essential qualities by reinforcing similar images, or by forcing the reader to choose between their own images and those suggested in film adaptation.

Introducing Cinematic Rendering: A Novel Technique for Post-Processing Medical Imaging Data  [PDF]
Franz A. Fellner
Journal of Biomedical Science and Engineering (JBiSE) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/jbise.2016.93013
Abstract: Since the 1980s, various techniques have been used in the field of medicine for the post-processing of medical imaging data from computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR). They include multiplanar reformations (MPR), maximum intensity projection (MIP) and Volume Rendering (VR). This paper presents the prototype of a new means of post-processing radiological examinations such as CT and MR, a technique that, for the first time, provides photorealistic visualizations of the human body. This new procedure was inspired by the quality of images achieved by animation software such as programs used in the entertainment industry, particularly to produce animated films. Thus, the name: Cinematic Rendering. It is already foreseeable that this new method of depiction will quickly be incorporated into the set of instruments employed in socalled virtual anatomy (teaching anatomy through the use of radiological depictions of the human body via X-ray, CT and MR in addition to the use of computer animation programs designed especially for human anatomy). Its potential for medical applications will have to be evaluated by future scientific investigations.
A Max-AR(1) Model with Max-Semistable Marginals  [PDF]
S Satheesh,E Sandhya
Mathematics , 2006,
Abstract: The structure of stationary first order max-autoregressive schemes with max-semi-stable marginals is studied. A connection between semi-selfsimilar extremal processes and this max-autoregressive scheme is discussed resulting in their characterizations. Corresponding cases of max-stable and selfsimilar extremal processes are also discussed.
