In reflecting on Alice Matthews emotional history task DROWNED I am bombarded with a variation in emotions. The story itself is very evocative in leaving the reader with a strong sense of sadness and gratitude in the life we possess. The use of ambient sound was appropriate to the clip, and sought to contribute to the overall story. Although the use of music was, at times appropriate, it took away from the storyline and the spoken words. Perhaps if the music was turned down or muted at some points, it would’ve been more appropriate. The overall rhythm of the story was not very well flowing at all, and the character development, sometimes disjointed. Overall, the story transitioned from sad to happy, and incorporated some good personal touches, such as the chant.
