Explaining each Emotion

We chose to do Fear, Depression, Anger and Happiness

Quotes taken from Wikipedia

Fear

 

“Fear is an emotion induced by a perceived threat that causes animals to move quickly away from the location of the perceived threat, and sometimes hide. It is also caused by one’s emotion that perceives something or someone as a threat. It is a basic survival mechanism occurring in response to a specific stimulus, such as pain or the threat of danger. In short, fear is the ability to recognize danger leading to an urge to confront it or flee from it (also known as the fight-or-flight response) but in extreme cases of fear (horror and terror) a freeze or paralysis response is possible. Some psychologists such as John B. WatsonRobert Plutchik, and Paul Ekman have suggested that there is only a small set of basic or innateemotions and that fear is one of them. This hypothesized set includes such emotions as joysadness, and anger. Fear should be distinguished from the emotion anxiety, which typically occurs without any certain or immediate external threat.”

In our group lucy chose to do fear she filmed herself in the mirror so when she lights up the match her face lights up. she  used black to represent fear.
Depression
“Depression is a state of low mood and aversion to activity that can have a negative effect on a person’s thoughts, behavior, feelings, world view and physical well-being. Depressed people may feel sadanxious, empty, hopeless, worried, helpless,worthless, guilty, irritable, hurt or restless. They may lose interest in activities that once were pleasurable, experience loss of appetite or overeating, have problems concentrating, remembering details, or making decisions and may contemplate or attemptsuicideInsomniaexcessive sleepingfatigue, loss of energy, or aches, pains or digestive problems that are resistant to treatment may also be present.”
Hannah did depression. she filmed in the graveyard and in her 30 seconds made it look like she was watching herself though the window walking alone. she also used dark colours such as black and blue to give it a depressing feel to it.
Anger
“Anger is an emotion related to one’s psychological interpretation of having been offended, wronged or denied and a tendency to react through retaliation. Shiela Videbeck describes anger as a normal emotion that involves a strong uncomfortable and emotional response to a perceived provocation. Raymond Novaco of UC Irvine, who since 1975 has published a plethora of literature on the subject, stratified anger into three modalities: cognitive (appraisals), somaticaffective (tension and agitations) and behavioral (withdrawal and antagonism). William DeFoore, an anger-management writer, described anger as a pressure cooker: we can only apply pressure against our anger for a certain amount of time until it explodes. Anger may have physical correlates such as increased heart rate, blood pressure, and levels of adrenaline and noradrenaline.Some view anger as part of the fight or flight brain response to the perceived threat of harm. Anger becomes the predominant feeling behaviorally, cognitively, and physiologically when a person makes the conscious choice to take action to immediately stop the threatening behavior of another outside force. The English term originally comes from the termanger of Old Norse language. Anger can have many physical and mental consequences”
Originally i was going to do Anger but in the end Kayley id it because she couldn’t think of what to do for happiness and she made a good angry face. Anger was done as Kayleys face coming out the fire and her throwing fire toward the screen. she used red to show anger.
Happiness
Happiness is a mental or emotional state of well-being characterized by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy.  A variety of biologicalpsychologicalreligious, and philosophical approaches have striven to define happiness and identify its sources. Various research groups, including Positive psychology, endeavor to apply the scientific method to answer questions about what “happiness” is, and how we might attain it.”
Happiness is my emotion and i filmed a short piece of the beach at boscome and make it seems like i was walking along happily with the wind in my hair.
