1. "Adobe Dreamweaver". Adobe. February 13, 2008 <www.adobe.com/product/dreamweaver>

 

    The Adobe Dreamweaver program is a web development application available to both Mac and PC users. Adobe's goal in Dreamweaver is ultimately trying to help you "design, develop, and maintain standard base websites and applications." The program is based on HTML coding which allows the user to create any sort of web program. Tools and tech support are provided to aid you in the development of your web-page. Dreamweaver also allows for other Adobe programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Flash, and Adobe Fireworks to be integrated into the website or application. The program is up-to-date with many of the new and in-demand software technologies that allow for a fast and efficient work environment. Ajax based web pages, the ability to efficiently create and manage cascading style sheets (CSS), the capability to copy and paste images from Adobe Photoshop, and the readily accessible tools addressing cross-browser compatibility bugs are just a few of the specific new features that Adobe Dreamweaver has to offer. Adobe offers a 30-day free trial of the Dreamweaver, however, to continue with the program afterwards it must be purchased. Dreamweaver will allow us to post our storyboard and create a virtual interactive experience with Hemingway's story "Indian camp". Here is an example of a website I created using Dreamweaver,  http://www.uweb.ucsb.edu/~bianca_nickols/.

 

 


2. Hemingway, Ernest.  "Indian Camp." 1924. 13 February 2008.  <http://nbu.bg/webs/amb/american/4/hemingway/camp.htm>

 

This website is dedicated to host the entire short story of Hemingway's "Indian Camp." Though the story may be brief, it contains many examples of stoicism, maturity, and rites of passage through the eyes of a young boy Nick Adams who experiences life and death all in one life happening episode.

 

The story begins with young Nick Adams, his Father, and his Uncle traveling across the river the help a young Indian woman, who has been in labor for two days, deliver her baby. Nick witnesses his father performing a cesarean with a fishing knife on the woman using no medication. Following this painful ordeal, Nick and his father find the woman's husband dead in the bunk above because "he couldn't stand things" and eventually slit his own throat. Throughout the story, Nick is constantly asking his father questions about the birth and the response usually grants the sympathy towards the father.

 

The role of masculinity is a common theme throughout many of Hemingway's stories, and in this particular text it is portrayed through the unnatural surgical process of birth. This ultimately gives the men a sense of a "job well done" because the woman doesn't necessarily have a role in the operation.

"Indian Camp" is a fluid story with a lot of imagery that will make a storyboard representation ideal for a different type of analysis.

 


 

3. Meyers, Jeffrey. "Hemingway's Primitivism and "Indian Camp". "Twentieth Century Literature 34. 21988 211-222. February 13, 2005 <www.jstor.org>

 

    Meyers' article critically analyzes Hemingway's story "Indian Camp" by proposing that through in-depth textual analysis it can be concluded that the story revolves around racism and sexism. Meyers notices that Hemingway moves his affection away from the hopeless child-bearing woman and more towards the father who hardly notice or takes a role in the birth. According to Meyers, this is an example of one of Hemingway's simplified stories which usually provides the reader with little or no explanation of clarification. Considering the simplicity, Meyers works to conceptualize the meaning beyond the text. He begins to focus on the father character who has recently killed himself during the child birth. In this sense, Meyers' suggests that "Indian Camp" opposes traditional Indian lifestyles which are centered around affection, love, and solidarity. In the story, the Indians are isolated from one another and there seems to be no affection for the suffering woman. This move towards a more primitive culture suggest Hemingway's belief in stoicism revolved around basic natural instincts. As Meyers laments about the father figures, the question of the role model in the mind of Nick Adams remains confusing and indistinct. Meyers interpretation for the storyboard will be extremely helpful because he provides outside textual evidence needed for a deeper understanding of the story. With his ideas, the ability to create an in-depth storyboard with accurate plots will be further clarified.

 

 


 

4. Stevens, Jane. "Storyboarding." Mulitmedia Storytelling. Knight Digital Media Center. 13 Feburary 2008 <http://multimedia.journalism.berkeley.edu/tutorials/reporting/starttofinish/storyboarding/>.

 

In this article by Jane Stevens, we are given a tutorial about the parameters and design of a storyboard. When creating a storyboard, the maker must take into consideration all elements of the story within each  visualization while still however establishing fluidity between the pictures. Stevens explains that storyboarding helps "point out the holes" in the story. It gives the viewer a model of the story in a visual and thematic, rather than textual, representation. Seeing the picture to a story opens up new parameters to the work being interpreted. Within each part of the storyboard are different elements that compliment the story. Ultimately we are breaking down the narrative into several different elements that could eventually be used for media purposes. Stevens begins the storyboard by sketching out the main plot and all the elements that it might include. She takes into perspective all the parts and/or subtopics that are apart of the textual evidence in order to fully understand the menu and navigation scheme in which they would need to present the story. This tutorial will help us in our process of constructing and interpreting our storyboard for Hemingway's "Indian Camp."

 

 


5.  van der Lelie, Corrie. "The Value of Storyboards in Product Design Process." Personal and Ubiquitous Computing 10(2005): 159-162.

 

 

In this article, Corrie Van der Lelie examines the process of the storyboard and how different visualization styles influence reactions. She states that, "storyboards not only help the product designer to get a grip on target groups, context, product use and timing, but also in communicating about these aspects with all people involved." Even though she isn't explaining the storyboard using literature, she is examining the design process in a series of steps that eventually forms a narrative scene. Corrie states that storyboards are commonly used in the advertising industry but for our project we are creating an advertisement for "Indian Camp". She breaks the storyboard process into a series of phases: analysis phase, synthesis phase, simulation phase, evaluation phase, and decision phase. These phases start us off with a good basis on our storyboard process.

 

 

During the analysis phase in our project, we would focus on "getting a grip" on what we intend to portray. This image should contain a detailed visual style that suggests many themes that provoke questioning however while still containing an inviting atmosphere.

 

 

The synthesis phase would be were we would start actually designing our scenes. These would consist of sketchy designs from each member of our group pulling together all ideas and planning prospects for our project.

 

 

The simulation phase is where we would start finding our outside sources for the narrative scenes.

 

 

The evaluation phase is where we would put the finishing touches to our project. We would probably look over the scenes and narratives to make sure everything flows together.

 

 

Finally the decision phase is where we would sit down as a group and see how we are going to present our ideas to the class. We should design our lecture so that it is inviting to comments and criticism.
