The Incredibles is a 2004 American computer-animated superhero film written and directed by Brad Bird, produced by Pixar Animation Studios, released by Walt Disney Pictures, starring the voices of Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Sarah Vowell, Spencer Fox, Jason Lee, Samuel L. Jackson, Elizabeth Peña. Set in an alternate version of the 1960s, the film follows the Parrs, a family of superheroes who hide their powers in accordance with a government mandate, attempt to live a quiet suburban life. Mr. Incredible's desire to help people draws the entire family into a confrontation with a vengeful fan-turned-foe and his killer robot. Bird, Pixar's first outside director, developed the film as an extension of the 1960s comic books and spy films from his boyhood and personal family life, he pitched the film to Pixar after the box office disappointment of his first feature, The Iron Giant, carried over much of its staff to develop The Incredibles. The animation team was tasked with animating an all-human cast, which required creating new technology to animate detailed human anatomy and realistic skin and hair.
Michael Giacchino composed the film's orchestral score. The film premiered on October 27, 2004, at the BFI London Film Festival and had its general release in the United States on November 5, 2004, it performed well at the box office, grossing $633 million worldwide during its original theatrical run. The Incredibles received widespread approval from critics and audiences, winning two Academy Awards and the Annie Award for Best Animated Feature, it was the first animated film to win the prestigious Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation. A sequel, Incredibles 2, was released on June 15, 2018. Public opinion turns against Superheroes due to the collateral damage caused by their crime-fighting. After several lawsuits, the government initiates the Superhero Relocation Program, which forces Supers to permanently adhere to their secret identities, making them illegal. Fifteen years Bob and Helen Parr—formerly known as Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl—and their children Violet and baby Jack-Jack are a suburban family living in Metroville.
Although he loves his family, Bob resents the mundanity of his suburban lifestyle and white-collar job. Together with his friend Lucius Best known as Frozone, Bob relives "the glory days" by moonlighting as a vigilante. After his supervisor prevents him from stopping a mugging, Bob loses his temper and injures him, resulting in his dismissal. Returning home, Bob receives a message from a woman called Mirage, who gives him a mission to destroy a savage tripod-like robot, the Omnidroid, on the remote island of Nomanisan. Mr. Incredible disables it by tricking it into ripping off its own power source. Mr. Incredible finds higher pay rejuvenating, he improves his relationship with his family and begins rigorous physical training while awaiting more work from Mirage for the next two months. Finding a tear in his blue suit, he visits superhero costume designer Edna Mode to have it mended. Assuming that Helen knows what Bob is doing, Edna makes new suits for the entire family. Setting out for Nomanisan once again, Mr. Incredible discovers Mirage is working for Buddy Pine, a disaffected former fan whom he had rejected as his sidekick, Incrediboy.
Having adopted the alias of Syndrome, he has been perfecting the Omnidroid by hiring different superheroes to fight it, killing many of them in the process. Syndrome intends to send the latest Omnidroid to Metroville, where he will secretly manipulate its controls to defeat it in public, becoming a "hero" himself, he will sell his inventions so that everyone can become "super", rendering the term meaningless. Helen learns what Bob has been up to, she activates a beacon Edna built into the suits to find Mr. Incredible, inadvertently causing him to be captured while infiltrating Syndrome's base. Elastigirl borrows a private plane to head for Nomanisan, she finds out that Dash have stowed away, leaving Jack-Jack with a babysitter. Elastigirl's radio transmissions are picked up by Syndrome; the plane is destroyed, but Elastigirl and the kids survive and use their powers to reach the island. Helen discovers Syndrome's plan. Discontented with Syndrome's indifference when her life was threatened, Mirage releases Mr. Incredible and informs him of his family's survival.
Helen races off with Mr. Incredible to find their children. Dash and Violet are chased by Syndrome's guards, but fend them off with their powers before reuniting with their parents. Syndrome captures them all, leaving them imprisoned while he follows the rocket transporting the Omnidroid to Metroville; the Incredibles escape to Metroville in another rocket with Mirage's help. As per its programming, the Omnidroid recognizes Syndrome as a threat and shoots off the remote control on his wrist, making him incapable of controlling it and knocking him unconscious; the Incredibles and Frozone fight the Omnidroid. Elastigirl acquires the remote control, allowing Mr. Incredible to use one of the robot's claws to destroy its power source. Returning home, the Incredibles find Syndrome, who plans to kidnap and raise Jack-Jack as his own sidekick to exact revenge on the family; as Syndrome is flying upward to reach his jet, Jack-Jack's own superpowers start to manifest and he escapes Syndrome midair. As Elastigirl catches Jack-Jack, Syndrome boards his plane, but Mr. Incredible throws his car at the villain, causing him to get sucked into the jet's turbine by his own cape, killing him and causing the plane to explode.
Three months the Incredibles witness the arrival of a supervillain called the Underminer. They put on their superhero masks, ready to fac
Dubbing, mixing, or re-recording is a post-production process used in filmmaking and video production in which additional or supplementary recordings are "mixed" with original production sound to create the finished soundtrack. The process takes place on a dub stage. After sound editors edit and prepare all the necessary tracks – dialogue, automated dialogue replacement, Foley, music – the dubbing mixers proceed to balance all of the elements and record the finished soundtrack. Dubbing is sometimes confused with ADR known as "additional dialogue replacement", "automated dialogue recording" and "looping", in which the original actors re-record and synchronize audio segments. Outside the film industry, the term "dubbing" refers to the replacement of the actor's voices with those of different performers speaking another language, called "revoicing" in the film industry. In the past, dubbing was practiced in musicals when the actor had an unsatisfactory singing voice. Today, dubbing enables the screening of audiovisual material to a mass audience in countries where viewers do not speak the same language as the performers in the original production.
Films and sometimes video games are dubbed into the local language of a foreign market. In foreign distribution, dubbing is common in theatrically released films, television films, television series and anime. Automated Dialog Replacement is the process of re-recording dialogue by the original actor after the filming process to improve audio quality or reflect dialogue changes. In India the process is known as "dubbing", while in the UK, it is called "post-synchronisation" or "post-sync"; the insertion of voice actor performances for animation, such as computer generated imagery or animated cartoons, is referred to as ADR although it does not replace existing dialogue. The ADR process may be used to: remove extraneous sounds such as production equipment noise, wind, or other undesirable sounds from the environment. Replace foul language for TV broadcasts of the movie. In conventional film production, a production sound mixer records dialogue during filming. During post-production, a supervising sound editor, or ADR supervisor, reviews all of the dialogue in the film and decides which lines must be re-recorded.
ADR is recorded during an ADR session. The actor the original actor from the set, views the scene with the original sound attempts to recreate the performance. Over the course of multiple takes, the actor performs the lines while watching the scene; the ADR process does not always take place in a post-production studio. The process may be recorded with mobile equipment. ADR can be recorded without showing the actor the image they must match, but by having them listen to the performance, since some actors believe that watching themselves act can degrade subsequent performances. Sometimes, a different actor than the original actor on set is used during ADR. One famous example is the Star Wars character Darth Vader portrayed by David Prowse. Other examples include: Ray Park, who acted as Darth Maul from Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace had his voice dubbed over by Peter Serafinowicz Frenchmen Philippe Noiret and Jacques Perrin, who were dubbed into Italian for Cinema Paradiso Austrian bodybuilder Arnold Schwarzenegger, dubbed for Hercules in New York Argentine boxer Carlos Monzón, dubbed by a professional actor for the lead in the drama La Mary Gert Frobe, who played Auric Goldfinger in the James Bond film Goldfinger, dubbed by Michael Collins Andie MacDowell's Jane, in Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes, dubbed by Glenn Close Tom Hardy, who portrayed Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, re-dubbed half of his own lines for ease of viewer comprehension Harvey Keitel was dubbed by Roy Dotrice in post production for Saturn 3 Dave Coulier dubbed replacement of swear words for Richard Pryor in multiple TV versions of his movies An alternative method to dubbing, called "rythmo band", has been used in Canada and France.
It provides a more precise guide for the actors and technicians, can be used to complement the traditional ADR method. The "band" is a clear 35 mm film leader on which the dialogue is hand-written in India ink, together with numerous additional indications for the actor—including laughs, length of syllables, mouth sounds and mouth openings and closings; the rythmo band is projected in scrolls in perfect synchronization with the picture. Studio time is used more efficiently, since with the aid of scrolling text and audio cues, actors can read more lines per hour than with ADR alone. With ADR, actors can average 10–12 lines per hour, while rythmo band can facilitate the reading of 35-50 lines per hour. However, the preparation of a rythmo band is a time-consuming process involving a series of specialists organized in a production line; this has prevented the technique from being more adopted, but software emulations of rythmo band technology overcome the dis
A sound effect is an artificially created or enhanced sound, or sound process used to emphasize artistic or other content of films, television shows, live performance, video games, music, or other media. These are created with foley. In motion picture and television production, a sound effect is a sound recorded and presented to make a specific storytelling or creative point without the use of dialogue or music; the term refers to a process applied to a recording, without referring to the recording itself. In professional motion picture and television production, dialogue and sound effects recordings are treated as separate elements. Dialogue and music recordings are never referred to as sound effects though the processes applied to such as reverberation or flanging effects are called "sound effects"; the term sound effect ranges back to the early days of radio. In its Year Book 1931 the BBC published a major article about "The Use of Sound Effects", it considers sounds effect linked with broadcasting and states: "It would be a great mistake to think of them as anologous to punctuation marks and accents in print.
They should never be inserted into a programme existing. The author of a broadcast play or broadcast construction ought to have used Sound Effects as bricks with which to build, treating them as of equal value with speech and music." It lists six "totally different primary genres of Sound Effect": Realistic, confirmatory effect Realistic, evocative effect Symbolic, evocative effect Conventionalised effect Impressionistic effect Music as an effectAccording to the author, "It is axiomatic that every Sound Effect, to whatever category it belongs, must register in the listener's mind instantaneously. If it fails to do so its presence could not be justified." In the context of motion pictures and television, sound effects refers to an entire hierarchy of sound elements, whose production encompasses many different disciplines, including: Hard sound effects are common sounds that appear on screen, such as door alarms, weapons firing, cars driving by. Background sound effects are sounds that do not explicitly synchronize with the picture, but indicate setting to the audience, such as forest sounds, the buzzing of fluorescent lights, car interiors.
The sound of people talking in the background is considered a "BG," but only if the speaker is unintelligible and the language is unrecognizable. These background noises are called ambience or atmos. Foley sound effects are sounds that synchronize on screen, require the expertise of a foley artist to record properly. Footsteps, the movement of hand props, the rustling of cloth are common foley units. Design sound effects are sounds that do not occur in nature, or are impossible to record in nature; these sounds are used to suggest futuristic technology in a science fiction film, or are used in a musical fashion to create an emotional mood. Each of these sound effect categories is specialized, with sound editors known as specialists in an area of sound effects. Foley is another method of adding sound effects. Foley is more of a technique for creating sound effects than a type of sound effect, but it is used for creating the incidental real world sounds that are specific to what is going on onscreen, such as footsteps.
With this technique the action onscreen is recreated to try to match it as as possible. If done it is hard for audiences to tell what sounds were added and what sounds were recorded. In the early days of film and radio, foley artists would add sounds in realtime or pre-recorded sound effects would be played back from analogue discs in realtime. Today, with effects held in digital format, it is easy to create any required sequence to be played in any desired timeline. In the days of silent film, sound effects were added by the operator of a theater organ or photoplayer, both of which supplied the soundtrack of the film. Theater organ sound effects are electric or electro-pneumatic, activated by a button pressed with the hand or foot. Photoplayer operators activate sound effects either by flipping switches on the machine or pulling "cow-tail" pull-strings, which hang above. Sounds like bells and drums are made mechanically and horns electronically. Due to its smaller size, a photoplayer has less special effects than a theater organ, or less complex ones.
The principles involved with modern video game sound effects are the same as those of motion pictures. A game project requires two jobs to be completed: sounds must be recorded or selected from a library and a sound engine must be programmed so that those sounds can be incorporated into the game's interactive environment. In earlier computers and video game systems, sound effects were produced using sound synthesis. In modern systems, the increases in storage capacity and playback quality has allowed sampled sound to be used; the modern systems frequently utilize positional audio with hardware acceleration, real-time audio post-processing, which can be tied to the 3D graphics development. Based on the internal state of the game, multiple different calculations can be made; this will allow for, for example, realistic sound dampening and doppler effect. The simplicity of game environments reduced the required number of sounds needed, thus only one or two people were directly responsible for the sound recording and design.
As the video game business has grown and computer sound reproductio
Titanic (1997 film)
Titanic is a 1997 American epic romance and disaster film directed, written, co-produced and co-edited by James Cameron. A fictionalized account of the sinking of the RMS Titanic, it stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet as members of different social classes who fall in love aboard the ship during its ill-fated maiden voyage. Cameron's inspiration for the film came from his fascination with shipwrecks. Production began in 1995; the modern scenes on the research vessel were shot on board the Akademik Mstislav Keldysh, which Cameron had used as a base when filming the wreck. Scale models, computer-generated imagery, a reconstruction of the Titanic built at Baja Studios were used to re-create the sinking; the film was funded by Paramount Pictures and 20th Century Fox. It was the most expensive film made at the time, with a production budget of $200 million. Upon its release on December 19, 1997, Titanic achieved commercial success. Nominated for 14 Academy Awards, it tied All About Eve for the most Oscar nominations, won 11, including the awards for Best Picture and Best Director, tying Ben-Hur for the most Oscars won by a single film.
With an initial worldwide gross of over $1.84 billion, Titanic was the first film to reach the billion-dollar mark. It remained the highest-grossing film of all time until Cameron's Avatar surpassed it in 2010. A 3D version of Titanic, released on April 4, 2012, to commemorate the centennial of the sinking, earned it an additional $343.6 million worldwide, pushing the film's worldwide total to $2.18 billion and making it the second film to gross more than $2 billion worldwide. In 2017, the film was re-released for its 20th anniversary and was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry. In 1996, treasure hunter Brock Lovett and his team aboard the research vessel Akademik Mstislav Keldysh search the wreck of RMS Titanic for a necklace with a rare diamond, the Heart of the Ocean, they recover a safe containing a drawing of a young woman wearing only the necklace dated April 14, 1912, the day the ship struck the iceberg. Rose Dawson Calvert, the woman in the drawing, is brought aboard Keldysh and tells Lovett of her experiences aboard Titanic.
In 1912 Southampton, 17-year-old first-class passenger Rose DeWitt Bukater, her fiancé Cal Hockley, her mother Ruth board the luxurious Titanic. Ruth emphasizes that Rose's marriage will resolve their family's financial problems and retain their high-class persona. Distraught over the engagement, Rose considers suicide by jumping from the stern. Discovered with Jack, Rose tells a concerned Cal that she was peering over the edge and Jack saved her from falling; when Cal becomes indifferent, she suggests to him. He invites Jack to dine with them in first class the following night. Jack and Rose develop a tentative friendship, despite Ruth being wary of him. Following dinner, Rose secretly joins Jack at a party in third class. Aware of Cal and Ruth's disapproval, Rose rebuffs Jack's advances, but realizes she prefers him over Cal. After rendezvousing on the bow at sunset, Rose takes Jack to her state room, they evade Cal's bodyguard, Mr. Lovejoy, have sex in an automobile inside the cargo hold. On the forward deck, they witness a collision with an iceberg and overhear the officers and designer discussing its seriousness.
Cal discovers Jack's sketch of Rose and an insulting note from her in his safe along with the necklace. When Jack and Rose attempt to inform Cal of the collision, Lovejoy slips the necklace into Jack's pocket and he and Cal accuse him of theft. Jack is arrested, taken to the master-at-arms' office, handcuffed to a pipe. Cal puts the necklace in his own coat pocket. With the ship sinking, Rose flees Cal and her mother, who has boarded a lifeboat, frees Jack. On the boat deck and Jack encourage her to board a lifeboat. After Rose boards one, Cal tells Jack; as her boat lowers, Rose decides that she jumps back on board. Cal takes his bodyguard's pistol and chases Rose and Jack into the flooding first-class dining saloon. After using up his ammunition, Cal realizes he gave his coat and the necklace to Rose, he boards a collapsible lifeboat by carrying a lost child. After braving several obstacles and Rose return to the boat deck; the lifeboats have departed and passengers are falling to their deaths as the stern rises out of the water.
The ship breaks in half. Jack and Rose ride it into the ocean and he helps her onto a wooden panel buoyant enough for only one person, he assures her. Jack dies of hypothermia but Rose is saved. With Rose hiding from Cal en route, the RMS Carpathia takes the survivors to New York City where Rose gives her name as Rose Dawson. Rose says she read that Cal committed suicide after losing all his money in the Wall Street Crash of 1929. Back in the present, Lovett decides to abandon his search after hearing Rose's story. Alone on the stern of Keldysh, Rose takes out the Heart of the Ocean – in her possession all along – and drops it into the sea over the wreck site. While she is asleep or has died in her bed, photos on her dresser depict a life of freedom and adventure in
The Rescuers Down Under
The Rescuers Down Under is a 1990 American animated adventure film produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation and released by Walt Disney Pictures on November 16, 1990. The 29th Disney animated feature film, the film is the sequel to the 1977 animated film The Rescuers, based on the novels of Margery Sharp. Set in the Australian Outback, the film centers on Bernard and Bianca traveling to Australia to save a boy named Cody from a villainous poacher in pursuit of an endangered bird of prey. Featuring the voices of Bob Newhart, Eva Gabor, John Candy, George C. Scott, The Rescuers Down Under was the first animated theatrical film sequel produced by Disney; the film was the second released during the Disney Renaissance era, which had begun the year prior with The Little Mermaid, but was an underperformer at the box office compared to the other films of the era. It is the first film to be created digitally and not use a camera. In the Australian Outback, a young boy named Cody rescues and befriends a rare golden eagle called Marahuté, who shows him her nest and eggs.
On, he falls into an animal trap set by Percival C. McLeach, a local poacher wanted by the Australian Rangers; when McLeach finds one of Marahuté's feathers in Cody's backpack, he realizes he knows the eagle's location, reveals he killed another, Marahuté's mate. McLeach throws Cody's backpack to a pack of crocodiles to trick the Rangers into thinking that Cody was eaten, kidnaps him, intent on extracting Marahuté's whereabouts. A mouse, the bait in the trap, runs off to a secret outpost, from which a telegram is sent to the Rescue Aid Society headquarters in New York City. Bernard and Miss Bianca, the RAS' elite field agents, are assigned to the mission, interrupting Bernard's attempt to propose marriage to Bianca, they go to find Orville the albatross, who aided them but instead meet his brother, whom they convince to fly them to Australia. There, they meet Jake, a hopping mouse, the RAS' local regional operative. Jake becomes infatuated with flirts with her, much to Bernard's dismay, he serves as protector in search of the boy.
Wilbur accidentally bends his spinal column out of shape trying to help them, so Jake sends him to the hospital. As Wilbur refuses to undergo surgery and escapes his captors, his back is unintentionally straightened in the struggle with the mouse medical staff. Cured, Wilbur departs in search of his friends. At McLeach's hideout, Cody is imprisoned with a number of captured animals after refusing to divulge Marahuté's whereabouts. Cody is thwarted by Joanna, McLeach's pet goanna. Realizing that Marahuté's eggs are Cody's weak spot, McLeach tricks Cody into thinking someone else killed Marahuté and releases him, knowing Cody will go to Marahuté's nest. Bernard and Jake arrive as McLeach gives chase and jump onto his halftrack to follow him. At Marahuté's nest, the mice try to warn Cody, but just Marahuté appears and McLeach captures her, along with Cody and Bianca. McLeach sends Joanna to eat Marahuté's eggs, but Bernard manages to trick her using egg-shaped stones, she leaves without harming the real eggs.
Wilbur arrives at the nest, whereupon Bernard convinces him to sit on the eggs while he goes after McLeach. McLeach takes his captives to Crocodile Falls, a huge waterfall at the end of the river he threw Cody's backpack into, he ties Cody up and hangs him over a group of crocodiles, intent on feeding him to them, but Bernard, riding a wild razorback pig he tamed using a horse whispering technique he learned from Jake and disables McLeach's vehicle. McLeach attempts to shoot the rope holding Cody above the water, but Bernard tricks Joanna into crashing into McLeach, sending both of them into the water; the crocodiles attack McLeach and Joanna, while behind them Cody falls into the water as the damaged rope breaks. While Joanna flees, McLeach fends off the crocodiles, but forgets until too late about the waterfall and plunges over it to his death. Bernard dives into the water and holds Cody long enough for Jake and Bianca to free Marahuté, allowing her to save Cody and Bernard just as they go over the waterfall.
Bernard, desperate to prevent any further incidents, proposes to Bianca, who eagerly and accepts while Jake salutes him with a new-found respect. Safe at last, the group departs for Cody's home. Meanwhile, Marahuté's eggs hatch, much to Wilbur's chagrin; the Rescuers Down Under features three characters from the first film. Bob Newhart as Bernard, a male grey mouse. Eva Gabor as Miss Bianca, a female white mouse; this was Eva Gabor's last film role before her death in 1995. John Candy as Wilbur, a comical albatross, he is the brother of the albatross who appeared in the first film. Adam Ryen as Cody, a young boy able to converse with most animals, the same as Penny in the first film. George C. Scott as Percival C. McLeach, a sinister poacher who wants to capture Marahuté for money. Frank Welker as Marahuté, a giant eagle. Welker voiced Joanna, McLeach's pet goanna who enjoys intimidating her captives and has a fondness for eggs, additional special vocal effects. Tristan Rogers as Jake, a debonair, self-confident and charismatic kangaroo mouse.

The Adventures of Tintin (film)
The Adventures of Tintin is a 2011 3D motion capture computer-animated action-adventure film based on the comic book series of the same name by Belgian cartoonist Hergé. Produced and directed by Steven Spielberg, co-produced by Peter Jackson and Kathleen Kennedy and written by Steven Moffat, Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish, the film is inspired by three of Hergé's albums: The Crab with the Golden Claws, The Secret of the Unicorn and Red Rackham's Treasure; the film stars the voices of Andy Serkis, Daniel Craig, Nick Frost and Simon Pegg. Spielberg acquired the film rights to The Adventures of Tintin series following Hergé's death in 1983, re-optioned them in 2002. Filming was due to begin in October 2008 for a 2010 release, but the release was delayed to 2011 after Universal Pictures opted out of producing the film with Paramount Pictures, who provided $30 million on pre-production. Sony Pictures chose to co-finance the film; the delay resulted in Thomas Sangster, cast as Tintin, departing from the project.
The world première took place on 22 October 2011 in Brussels. The film was released in the United Kingdom and other European countries on 26 October 2011 and in the United States on 21 December 2011 in Digital 3D and IMAX 3D formats; the Adventures of Tintin was commercially successful, having grossed over $373 million against a budget of $135 million and received positive reviews from critics, who compared the film to Spielberg's previous work Raiders of the Lost Ark. It was the first motion-captured animated film to win the Golden Globe Award for Best Animated Feature Film. Composer John Williams was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Score and the film was nominated for six Saturn Awards, including Best Animated Film, Best Director for Spielberg and Best Music for Williams. In 1950s Brussels, while browsing in an outdoor market with his pet dog Snowy, young journalist Tintin purchases a miniature model of a ship known as the Unicorn, but is accosted by an Interpol officer named Barnaby and a ship collector named Ivan Ivanovitch Sakharine, who both unsuccessfully attempt to get the model from Tintin.
After Tintin takes the model home to his apartment, it gets accidentally broken during a chase between Snowy and a cat. A parchment scroll slips out and rolls under a piece of furniture. Meanwhile, bumbling police detectives Thomson and Thompson are on the trail of a pickpocket named Aristides Silk. After visiting Maritime Library to uncover the history surrounding the Unicorn, Tintin returns to find the Unicorn has been stolen, suspecting Sakharine, he heads to Marlinspike Hall and accuses him of the theft, but noticing Sakharine's model is not broken he realizes there are two Unicorn models. Tintin returns home to his apartment to find it ransacked. Snowy shows him the scroll, but they are interrupted by the arrival of Barnaby, assassinated while attempting to recover the Unicorn. Tintin is pickpocketed by Silk the next morning. Tintin is abducted and imprisoned by accomplices of Sakharine on the SS Karaboudjan, he learns that Sakharine led a mutiny to take control. On board, Tintin meets Archibald Haddock, the ship's captain, permanently drunk and unaware of most of his past.
Tintin and Snowy outrun the crew and escape from the Karaboudjan in a lifeboat. The ship fails to ram their boat because they instead rammed an empty lifeboat the captain accidentally released during his escape. Presuming them to have survived by the number of lifeboats, Sakharine sends a seaplane to find and capture them. Feeling cold and thirsty on the lifeboat ride, Haddock foolishly uses a stowaway bottle of scotch whisky to light a fire in the boat, accidentally causing a massive explosion that flips the boat upside down and leaves the trio stranded on top of it; the trio seizes the plane, uses it to fly towards the fictitious Moroccan port of Bagghar. However, the seaplane crashes in a desert due to a thunderstorm. While trekking through the desert, Haddock hallucinates and remembers his ancestor, Sir Francis Haddock, the 17th-century captain of the Unicorn whose treasure-laden ship was attacked by the crew of a pirate ship, led by Red Rackham revealed to be Sakharine's ancestor. Sir Francis surrendered and sank the Unicorn and most of the treasure, to prevent it from falling into Rackham's hands.
The story implies there were each containing a scroll. The third model is in Bagghar, possessed by Omar ben Salaad. Sakharine causes a distraction in a Bianca Castafiore concert that results in him stealing the third scroll. A chase through the city ensues. Just as he is ready to give up, Tintin is persuaded by Haddock to continue. With help from Thomson and Thompson and Haddock track Sakharine back to Brussels and set up a trap, but Sakharine uses his pistol to resist arrest; when his men fail to save him, Sakharine challenges Haddock to a sword fight with the cranes at the dock. After the fight, Sakharine is pushed overboard by Haddock and finally rescued and arrested by Thomson and Thompson. Guided by the three scrolls which indicate the location of Marlinspike Hall, Tintin and Snowy find there some of the treasure and a clue to the Unicorn's location; the film ends with both men agreeing on setting up an expedition to find the shipwreck. Jamie Bell as Tintin. Bell replaced Thomas Sangster, who dropped out when filming was delayed in October 2008.
Motion picture credits
Two types of credits are traditionally used in films, television programs, video games. While opening credits will display only the major positions in a production's cast and crew, closing credits will acknowledge all staff members that were involved in the production. Opening credits, in a television program, motion picture, or video game, are shown at the beginning of a show/movie after the production logos, list the most important members of the production, they are shown as text superimposed on a blank screen or static pictures, or sometimes on top of action in the show. Some opening credits are built around production numbers of some sort. Opening credits mention the major actors, the lead actor would be prominent, the supporting actors would follow. Others that would be listed are guest stars and director, as opposed to closing credits which lists the entire production crew. Closing credits, in a television program, motion picture, or video game come at the end of a show and list all the cast and crew involved in the production.
All television and film productions, omit the names of orchestra members from the closing credits, instead citing the name of the orchestra and sometimes not that. Most omitted are the names of translators involved in subtitling, as well as any technicians involved in the process in productions that are made with a view to the international market and therefore premier with subtitles. Closing credits are shown on the screen in small characters, which either flip quickly from page to page, or scroll from bottom to top of the screen. Credits which scroll either left-to-right or up-and-down are known as staff rolls, which comes from pre digital days when the names were on a roll of paper and would pass in front of the camera. Standard film credits move from bottom to top, are called "credit crawls." Industry traditions, guild rules, union rules dictate the order and placement of specific names and job titles. Post-credits scenes are being added to the end of films. Still, short or full logos appear at the end of films.
Credits for motion pictures include the name of any locales used to film scenes, as well as any organizations not related to the production that played a role in the filming. Billing is a film term denoting the amount and order in which film credits information is presented in advertising and on the film itself. Information given in billing consists of the actors appearing in the movie, the directors, the companies producing and distributing the movie, artistic and technical crew; the title of the movie is considered to be part of the billing. In the layout of film posters and other advertising copy, the billing is placed at the bottom of the poster in what is known as the billing block. In the United States, screenwriting credit for motion pictures and television programs under its jurisdiction is determined by the Writers Guild of America; the Guild is the final arbiter of who receives credit for writing the screenplay, the original story, or creating the original characters, a privilege it has possessed since 1941.
If a production company is a signatory to the Guild's Basic Agreement, it must comply with the Guild's rules. Production logo Title sequence All persons fictitious disclaimer
