How to Insert a Link into your Response Type the name of your clip Highlight the text Right-click on the selected text Click the Link Icon Enter the link URL in the Link Path box Under Target, select Open in New Window Click Insert Example Post:The NaturalNote: This is an example of an initial post for this discussion. The content of the clip is not the focus; the close-up technique is what is important.In this clip from The Natural, the close-up technique is used to make a number of points. The close-up of a bloody patch on Ray’s uniform emphasizes that he is injured, and that the task before him, to hit a game winning home run, has become monumental. The chess-game duel between pitcher and batter in baseball is underlined in three close-ups. One is of the ball in the hand in the pitcher; one is of the face of Ray that shows his concentration, and the third is a close up of the face of the pitcher, which mirrors Ray’s concentration. The duel between pitcher and batter is developed further when the camera shows the ball leaving the glove of the pitcher. The release is shown as a close-up to indicate that the metaphorical bullet has been fired, and the importance of the aim is made clear in the head-on close up of the ball as it travels to Ray. On its arrival, the contest between pitcher and hitter is over, and the outcome is made clear through the close-up of the smashed lamp, which emphasizes the tremendous power, both literally and figuratively, of the home run of the victor. Without a word, the use of close-ups mightily communicates meaning in this clip.
