A storyboard is a graphic organizer that consists of illustrations or images displayed in sequence for the purpose of pre-visualizing a motion picture, motion graphic or interactive media sequence. The storyboarding process, in the form it is known today, was developed at Walt Disney Productions during the early 1930s, after several years of similar processes being in use at Walt Disney and other animation studios. Many large budget silent films were storyboarded, but most of this material has been lost during the reduction of the studio archives during the 1970s and 1980s. Special effects pioneer Georges Méliès is known to have been among the first filmmakers to use storyboards and pre-production art to visualize planned effects. However, storyboarding in the form known today was developed at the Walt Disney studio during the early 1930s. In the biography of her father, The Story of Walt Disney, Diane Disney Miller explains that the first complete storyboards were created for the 1933 Disney short Three Little Pigs.

According to John Canemaker, in Paper Dreams: The Art and Artists of Disney Storyboards, the first storyboards at Disney evolved from comic book-like "story sketches" created in the 1920s to illustrate concepts for animated cartoon short subjects such as Plane Crazy and Steamboat Willie, within a few years the idea spread to other studios. According to Christopher Finch in The Art of Walt Disney, Disney credited animator Webb Smith with creating the idea of drawing scenes on separate sheets of paper and pinning them up on a bulletin board to tell a story in sequence, thus creating the first storyboard. Furthermore, it was Disney who first recognized the necessity for studios to maintain a separate "story department" with specialized storyboard artists, as he had realized that audiences would not watch a film unless its story gave them a reason to care about the characters; the second studio to switch from "story sketches" to storyboards was Walter Lantz Productions in early 1935. By 1937 or 1938, all American animation studios were using storyboards.

Gone with the Wind was one of the first live-action films to be storyboarded. William Cameron Menzies, the film's production designer, was hired by producer David O. Selznick to design every shot of the film. Storyboarding became popular in live-action film production during the early 1940s and grew into a standard medium for the previsualization of films. Pace Gallery curator Annette Micheloson, writing of the exhibition Drawing into Film: Director's Drawings, considered the 1940s to 1990s to be the period in which "production design was characterized by the adoption of the storyboard". Storyboards are now an essential part of the creative process. A film storyboard, is a series of frames, with drawings of the sequence of events in a film, similar to a comic book of the film or some section of the film produced beforehand, it helps film directors and television commercial advertising clients visualize the scenes and find potential problems before they occur. Besides this, storyboards help estimate the cost of the overall production and save time.

Storyboards include arrows or instructions that indicate movement. For fast-paced action scenes, monochrome line art might suffice. For slower-paced dramatic films with an emphasis on lighting, color impressionist style art might be necessary. In creating a motion picture with any degree of fidelity to a script, a storyboard provides a visual layout of events as they are to be seen through the camera lens, and in the case of interactive media, it is the layout and sequence in which the user or viewer sees the content or information. In the storyboarding process, most technical details involved in crafting a film or interactive media project can be efficiently described either in a picture or in additional text. A common misconception is. Directors and playwrights use storyboards as special tools to understand the layout of the scene; the great Russian theatre practitioner Stanislavski developed storyboards in his detailed production plans for his Moscow Art Theatre performances. The German director and dramatist Bertolt Brecht developed detailed storyboards as part of his dramaturgical method of "fabels."

In animation and special effects work, the storyboarding stage may be followed by simplified mock-ups called "animatics" to give a better idea of how a scene will look and feel with motion and timing. At its simplest, an animatic is a sequence of still images displayed in sync with rough dialogue or rough soundtrack providing a simplified overview of how various visual and auditory elements will work in conjunction to one another; this allows the animators and directors to work out any screenplay, camera positioning, shot list, timing issues that may exist with the current storyboard. The storyboard and soundtrack are amended if necessary, a new animatic may be created and reviewed by the production staff until the storyboard is finalized. Editing at the animatic stage can help a production avoid wasting time and resources on the animation of scenes that would otherwise be edited out of the film at a stage. A few minutes of screen time in traditional animation equates to months of work for a team of traditional animators, who must painstakingly draw and paint countless frames, meaning that all that labor will have to be written off if the final scene simply

Hair twists

Hair twists, flat twists, or mini-twists, are a hairstyle popular with Afro-textured hair around the world, sometimes with other hair textures. The style is achieved by dividing the hairs into several sections, twisting strands of hair twisting two twisted strands around one another, they can be created with one strand of hair at a time, with a comb. They are not to be confused with longer dreadlocks. Twists can be made when curly hair is still wet and somewhat relaxed from soaking with hot water. Twists can be done with dry hair for a different texture. Twists can be combined with other hairstyles such as afro-puffs and Afro. In order to maintain twist hairstyles, wearers are advised by hairstylists to cover their hair with a headscarf or durag at night. On July 3, 2019, California became the first US state to prohibit discrimination over natural hair. Governor Gavin Newsom signed the CROWN Act into law, banning employers and schools from discriminating against hairstyles such as twists, braids and locks.

In 2019 Assembly Bill 07797 became law in New York state. A variation of hair twists is called a "twist out", where twisted hair is untwisted to create a large, loosely crimped texture, similar in appearance to hair crimping on Caucasian-textured hair, ordinarily straight. There are two different variations to a "twist out," one method can be done with using two stands of hair and another method uses three stands of hair called a "three stand twist out". Both result in a textured hairstyle. Other twist hairstyles include Senegalese twists, Marley twists, Havana twists. All of these hairstyles require specific types of hair extensions; these styles have been labeled as protective styles because they protect the person's natural hair from daily manipulation. Senegalese twists originated in Senegal and are performed in African hair salons across the U. S; this style uses synthetic Kanekalon hair. Marley and Havana twists are more recent hairstyles spread through the black hair community in 2013, they look similar to one another, but have distinct differences.

Marley twists use Marley hair extensions that can be found in most hair supply stores from various hair companies and Havana twists use Havana hair extensions sold by few companies that are only available online. Havana twists are done with fewer twists than the Marley hairstyle and weigh less in density because the hair is much fluffier in texture than Marley hair. Both hairstyles like Senegalese can last from one to three months, but should not be kept in for a longer period of time. Due to the technique of these hairstyles a person's natural hair can begin to get matted or form into dreadlocks. Barber Ulm Without Appointment

Big Brother (Australian season 7)

Big Brother Australia 2007 known as Big Brother 7, was the seventh season of the Australian reality television series Big Brother. Episodes were broadcast on Network Ten in Australia, the first episode aired on 22 April 2007. Despite a drop in ratings compared to previous seasons, a number of controversies, the Big Brother executive producer Kris Noble considers the year's season a success. At the end of this season's finale broadcast 30 July 2007, it was announced by host Gretel Killeen that Big Brother would be returning for an eighth season in 2008. In the finale Aleisha Cowcher was announced winner of Big Brother Australia 2007, she won by the closest winning margin in the Australian version. The news the following day reported a margin of 51% versus 49% – a difference of 65 votes; this was the last season. During the sixth-season finale, a seventh season of the show was confirmed. Auditions were held throughout November and December 2006, taking place in Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Darwin.

The house this season was confirmed as to be having style. On 18 April 2007, after housemates were put into lockdown, it was revealed that there would be no prize money this season; the launch date of the seventh season was rumoured to be 22 April 2007. These rumours were confirmed. Big Brother 2007 introduced. On 29 January 2007, Network Ten, Endemol Southern Star, Masterfoods announced "Australia's biggest integrated television promotion", the Big Brother Starburst Golden Key, which would allow a member of the public to enter the Big Brother House as a housemate. Unique alphanumeric codes were included in packs of Starburst, a confectionery manufactured by Masterfoods. One hundred codes gave the opportunity to audition for the BB season. Of these people, one would be eligible to win the season and all prizes; the winner of this competition was selected during a special episode called "Golden Key". On Day 18, Nick Sady entered the Big Brother House. Big Brother informed the housemates that there was zero prize money.

They were informed that they could earn prize money by completing various tasks. This year the winner of Friday Night Live was given a greater power in nominations. Replacing the Three Point Twist of previous seasons, the Friday Night Live winner each week this season was required to choose one nominated housemate to be removed from the nomination line-up, to nominate another to replace them; the winner of Friday Night Live this season was given the chance to discuss their nominations, both past and present, with their chosen housemate whilst inside the Rewards Room. All staple foods provided to housemates this year were vegan; the housemates could supplement this with milk and eggs supplied from the farm yard and herbs and mushrooms from the herb garden. For the first time Big Brother Australia featured a telephone in the house, it was situated in the lounge and was shown on the Opening Night broadcast before the housemates entered the house. On Day 37, Big Brother informed housemates that if the phone rang only one housemate could answer it.

Joel was nominated to answer it on the housemates' behalf. On Day 52 Joel received a call from Big Brother advising that he would be away from the house and would communicate via the phone to Joel at various times. On Day 58 Andrew picked up the phone as a joke, was penalised by being sent to the Punishment Room to polish boots. Michelle joined him in the Punishment Room due to the weekly task which involved housemates remaining partnered. On Day 97 the housemates were allowed to speak with several of the Big Brother UK housemates; the UK Big Brother House had a telephone and unlike the Australian version this was the first time the phone was used in the UK version. Adjacent to the kitchen was a new room called the "Chill Out Room"; as an official rule, no more than three housemates were allowed in the room at a time. It provided a quiet place to relax, away from the rest of the housemates. On 23 April 2007, the four remaining wild-card housemates not selected to enter the House via the public vote on Days 1 and 2 were isolated in the "White Room".

The housemates were Cruz, Demet and Harrison. The White Room and its fixtures and fittings were all white, the housemates had only white clothes to wear. White Room housemates were provided with a white porridge. In the centre of the room was a red button. At any time, a housemate could press the red button; this decision to leave was final and the quitting housemate could not return to the Big Brother House or the White Room. The challenge was that the housemate who stayed in the White Room the longest without pressing the red button would become a legitimate Big Brother housemate and enter the main house with the rest of the housemates. Monitors in the Big Brother House allowed the housemates to watch, without audio, the White Room housemates at all times; the White Room housemates were unaware. Cruz was the first white room resident evicted when he pressed the red button after Big Brother offered $750 to whoever pushed the red button first. In the days after Cruz departed no one else volunteered to leave, so Big Brother ran a set of challenges to decide who from the White Room would move to the main house.

First, Kara was evicted when Demet nominated her. The Big Brother hou
