The Fox and the Hound: Framed
Framed is an assignment that involves taking a 2 minute video and and going through the frames until you find one that represents the overall story of the video. I wasn’t exactly sure what this idea meant so I looked at Amelia’s example with the Pursuit of Happyness. She perfectly showed the main theme of the movie.
I chose to do this with The Fox and the Hound. I seem to be going on a Disney kick lately so I decided to keep it up. I really like the theme behind the movie, Friendship. It is about a very unlikely friendship between a hound dog and a fox. In the movie, they are technically supposed to be mortal enemies. However, like in most Disney movies the good overcomes the evil and they are friends for life. It has some sad parts, but I like to ignore those.
I chose the beginning clip where Todd and Copper first meet. It is obviously vital to the whole story. Without this clip, there would be no movie.
The frame I chose within the clip was where Todd and Copper interact for the first time by touching noses. Copper realizes that Todd is what he has been trailing. It is kind of ironic because they both have no idea that they are not meant to be friends.
To get this clip I downloaded it using keepvid. I then converted it to a .wmv file using Real Player. The clip was about 3 minutes long so I cut it down to a little over two minutes. I also thought it was a bit dark so I added an effect that lightened the clip.
