    1.)
    sequence1:
    begins with the baseball game yankees vs. athletics.
    ends when billy talks with his boss steve.

    sequence 2:
    begins in the athletics team management meeting
    ends in the same office when they finish talking about players

    sequence 3:
    begins when billy talks to a players agent
    ends when he can’t offer him what the agent wants

    2.)
    interior scenes outweigh exterior scenes. this is because the movie is about baseball management not about the actual game in the field. the movie deals with making the most efficient team with a very limited budget competing against giant teams that have the best players and have a much bigger budget with which to work.

    3.)
    the transition that is mostly used between scenes is cut to scene.

    4.)
    int. billy’s house-night

    Billy walks into his house tired at night. leaves the bag in the floor and conects his cell phone to the charger and calls tara on the house phone.

    billy: hello hun, you got my suitcase?
    tara: no, they sent it to prague.
    billy: why?
    tara: we left from oakland, i think the bag handlers know it is yours.

    billies cell phone rings

    billy: hun, i got to take a phone call, call you later.
    tara: love you.

    billy switches to his cell phone.

    billy: hello
    scott: just got off the phone with dan
    billy:i have Johnny for 7.5 or his not playing anywhere else and thats the deal.
    scott: boston went up to 7.75.

    billy gets very mad and almost smashes his cell phone but handles to control himself.

    billy: we had a deal.
    scott:I’m just doing the best job for my client that i can.
    billy: no, you played me, and are playing me now. congratulations asshole, you win.

    billy hangs up

    Sequence 1: Start at the team management meeting talking about how to replace the lost players and ends there

    Sequence 2: When billy talks to Damons agent and realizes that the team cant afford Giambi and it ends when he hangs up

    Sequence 3 : Begins when Billy and Pete talk to the Club owner about now they are doing and it ends when they start their winning streak

    2. Interior scenes outweigh exterior scenes because its a movie about baseball management meaning what happens behind the game so its only logical that most of the movie has interior scenes.

    3. The most used transition is cut to scene and a few are fades in and out.

    4.
    INT. BILLY’S CONDOMINIUM – NIGHT

    BILLY Dials PETER number in the middle of the night.

    INTERCUT WITH

    INT. PETER’ s APARTMENT – SAME TIME

    PAUL’s ringing cell phone wakes him up and he answers it.

    PETER
    Hello?

    BILLY
    It’s Billy Beane.

    PETER
    What time is it?

    BILLY
    I don’t care. Would you have drafted me
    in the first round?

    PETER
    What?

    BILLY
    After I left you ran me through your
    computer, right? Would you have drafted
    me in the first round?

    PETER
    You were a good baseball player.

    BILLY
    Would you have drafted me in the first
    round?

    PETER
    I’d have drafted you in the ninth round.
    No signing bonus. You’d have passed and
    gone to Stanford.

    BILLY
    Pack your suitcases.

    PETER
    Why?

    BILLY
    I just bought you from the Cleveland
    Indians.

    BILLY hangs up the phone.

    Sequence 1: When Billy walks into Peter’s office to talk to him.
    Sequence 2: When Billy’s doaghter asks about his job.
    Sequence 3: when Billy tells Pete why he doesn’t watch games.

    Interior Scenes outweight Exterior Scence because they are more emotional than exterior scenes.

    It just cuts to the next scene.

    Billy get in the office bulding
    Billy:who are you?
    Peter: I’m Peter Brand.
    B:what do you do?
    P:im special assistant to Marsh.
    B:what do you do?
    P: player analisys, right now.
    B: been on the job long? first job in baseball?
    P:its my first job anywhere.
    B: first job? who is nephew are you?
    B: why does Mark listen to you?
    P: i Dont think he does very often.
    B: he just did
    P:in that circumstances, i think he was listening more to bruce than myself.
    B: who are you?
    P:im peter brand.
    B: i dont give a rat ass what your name is, what happened in there?
    P: im not sure what you want me to say?
    B: why dont you like garcia, why?
    and the scene cuts to the next one when they are talking in the parking.

    1) Sequence 1: Starts when Billy goes to Pete and tell him that they lost and ends when Pete shows him a video of a player hitting a home-run and not even noticing it.

    Sequence 2: Starts when Billy and Pete go to the manager office and tell him that Carlos Pena is gone to Detroit and ends when they leave the office afterwards.

    Sequence 3: When Bill and an agent go to Scott Hatteberg house to give him the contract and ends when they leave the house.

    2) Interior Scenes outweighs exterior scenes, since its a movie about baseball and building a good team with a low budget, and those things happen in the interior. So, in the interior is where the “hard” work is done.

    3) Cut-to-scene is the most used. Another one used is Fade In- Fade Out

    4) INT. Peter’s Office

    Billy gets in Peter office to talk with him.

    Billy: Oh, Peter Brand.
    Peter: BIlly
    B: How are you, how you doing.
    P: Good, nice to see you.
    B: Good to have you here. Well, you move here fast.
    P: Yeah, I got here early this morning. I moved in.
    P: Hey Billy, I wanted you to see this player evaluations that you asked me to do.
    B: I asked you to do three.
    P: Yeah
    B: To evaluate three player
    P: Yeah
    B: How many did you do?
    P: 47
    B: Ok
    P: Actually 51, I don’t know why I lied right now.
    B: Ok

    After seeing Moneyball, complete the following excercises.
    1. Define the beginning and end of at least three complete sequences.

    1st sequence:
    the first sequence of the movie starts with a playoff game between the New York Yankees and The Oakland Athletics, in which the athletics lose and get out of the season.
    This first sequence ends when Bean talks with the agent of Johnny Damon and “looses” the player when Boston offers more money than what they can afford.

    2nd sequence:
    This sequence starts when Bean visits the Cleveland Indians office trying to negotiate some players unsuccessfully.
    The sequence ends after Peter Brand arrives to Oakland and another meeting is done.

    3rd sequence:
    Bean and one of his scouts visit Scott Hatterberg t offer him the first base of the Athletics.
    The sequence ends when the spring training begins.

    2. Do exterior scenes outweigh interior scenes or vicerversa? Why is that?

    Interior Scenes outweigh exterior scenes because is a movie about baseball operations. The movie is about a general manager and his assistant taking decisions in the offices and doing the best effort to put a team that can win games in the field.

    3. Describe what transitions between scenes are used the most.

    They just cut the scenes and pass to the next in most of the cases.

    4. Write at least one scene as seen in the movie. Make it as close as possible.

    Scene: the scene where Billy Bean visits the Cleveland IndianOffices (13:35)
    Int. Office. Day

    SECRETARY

    BILLY BEAN
    How are you doing today?

    SECRETARY
    Fine

    BILLY BEAN
    Good!!

    MARK
    Hey Billy

    BILLY BEAN
    Hi Mark

    MARK
    Good to see you, please take a sit. These are the guys. Guys, Billy.
    How is it going?

    BILLY BEAN
    Is going all right. How you been?, you fill that chair nicely

    MARK
    Well, I have three weeks in it now. Yeahh men how you doing?

    BILLY BEAN
    Fantastic, awesome

    MARK
    That’s good to hear Billy. I’m not gonna waste your time. Tell me what you are looking for?

    BILLY BEAN
    50 million dollars to the additional payroll.

    MARK
    You should try Giambi………(nonsense and then) . What are you looking for?

    BILLY BEAN
    A left reliever, I’m thinking of Ricardo Rincon.

    MARK
    That’s not going to happen

    BILLY BEAN
    Not even a discussion?

    MARK
    Billy, even if you could afford it, respectfully, we love him, we are not about to let him go……….

  6. 1.)Sequence 1:
    Begins when the game of Yankees vs. athletics is beginning.
    Ends when Billy and Steve Schott, speak in the corridors.

    Sequence 2:
    Begins When Billy’s daughter Casey asks about his job and options.
    Ends when Billy says to Casey Merry Christmas.

    Sequence 3:
    Begins when Billy is talking to an agent about his players.
    Ends when the agent and Billy can not reach an agreement.

    2. Interior scenes outweigh exterior scenes because this movie is what happens behind the game, management.

    3. The transition mostly used is cut to scene.

    4.Billy reaches and pulls out a CD that has written “Dad’s Mix”.

    Billy plays it.

    Casey voice says” Hey, dad this is the song I told you I would record. Please don’t show it to anybody else. Let me know if you change your mind on staying in California if not you’re a really good dad.

    Billys eyes get watery. He continues on down the freeway driving.

    As we see the following titles dissolve into one another:

    Billy Beane turned down the Red Sox offer of $12500000 and chose to say in Oakland as the A’s general manager

    Two years later, the Red Sox won their first world series since 1918 embracing the philosophy championed in Oakland.

    Billy is still trying to win the last game of the season.

  8. Moneyball

    Sequences:
    1)
    Beginning: EXT. 1980, high school baseball field, scouts are watching Billy during batting practice, they talk about his abilities.
    End: EXT. DUGOUT, it ends with the scouts speaking with young Billy about his life.
    Beginning: INT. Office, Billy tries to convince the president of the A’s to make the payroll budget higher.
    End: INT. Office, It turns out that the president denies Billy’s motion of raising the budget, Billy leaves furious.
    Beginning: INT. Scouts Meeting, Billy sits with the scouts to discuss the substitutions needed/
    End: INT. Scouts Meeting, Billy ends up getting mad and expressing his thoughts on how the scouts are wrong.
    2)
    I believe interior scenes outweigh exterior scenes because most of the important outcomes and decisions are seen in interior scenes, although exterior scenes such as the baseball games have been important to the final outcome and understanding of the movie. This is because the movie is intended to look at what happens behind the game, and the business is represents.
    3)
    Cut to scenes are the most used transitions in Moneyball, sometimes fade in and out.
    4)
    This is the conversation of the Manager (Art) and Billy before going in to the scouts meeting with Peter.
    A: Who’s the kid?
    B: I hired a guy to carry cartons of paper for me, I don’t know if he’s gonna work out though, I mean you saw what just happened.
    A: I can’t manage this team under a one-year contract.
    B: Sure you can.
    A: No I can’t.
    B: Then you’ll be sued for material breach.
    A: And that’s that?
    B: I’ve got to put a team on the field, then I’ll deal with your contract.
    A: How about you deal with the manager’s contract and then put a team on the field?
    B: At the moment, if a ground ball is hit to first base, nobody’s going to be there to stop it from rolling.
    A: It’s not like we didn’t win games last year.
    B: If you lose the last one of the season nobody gives a shit about the others.
    A: It’s on me now?
    B: It’s on me, Art! And the kid’s the new assistant to the general manager.
    A: What the fuck are you about to do?

  9. 1. Define the beginning and end of at least three complete sequences.
    1st sequence:
    a game between the Yankees and The Oakland Athletics, they loose and are out for the rest of the season. The sequence ends when Beane is negotiating with Johnny Damon’s agent who goes for Boston s team because they offer him more money.
    2nd sequence:
    Beane visits the Cleveland Indians office trying to negotiate some players unsuccessfully.
    The sequence ends after Peter Brand arrives to Oakland and another meeting is done.
    3rd sequence:
    Starts with Beane offering Scott Hatterberg first base, Ends when the training begins.

    2. Do exterior scenes outweigh interior scenes or vicerversa? Why is that?
    Interior Scenes gives a more internal image on what’s happening around the team rather than the team itself, the movies main point is the struggle within the Oakland athletics managers and administration therefore these scenes outweigh exterior scenes.

    3. Describe what transitions between scenes are used the most.
    Cuts and jumps to the next scene.

    4. Write at least one scene as seen in the movie. Make it as close as possible.

    Scene; Beane’s daughter Casey strums a guitar in the middle of the store and sings The Show from Lenka to her father.

    Beane and Casey enter the store looking for a guitar for caseys lessons.
    Casey picks one
    Bean: “Try it here”
    Casey strums the guitar and hums a song while playing it
    (Bean stares)
    (Casey stops and smiles)
    Bean: “Oh hun you need to sing, that is so good, that’s beautiful!”
    Casey: “Sometimes I sing. Its fun to sing with your song but I don’t want people to listen to me”
    Bean: “Well honey I think people would love to listen to you that’s beautiful”
    Bean: “Would you sing a little for your dad”
    Bean: “Right in the middle of the store”
    (casey smiles and knods her head)
    Casey: “A little bit, You’re ready?”
    Bean: “I’m ready”
    (Casey sings)
    Casey: “I’m just a little bit caught in the middle
    Life is a maze and love is a riddle
    I don’t know where to go, can’t do it alone
    I’ve tried and I don’t know why

    I’m just a little girl lost in the moment
    I’m so scared but I don’t show it
    I can’t figure it out, it’s bringing me down
    I know I’ve got to let it go and just enjoy the show”

    Bean listens amazed
    Bean covers his mouth
    Casey giggles

    At the end of the movie she sings a version of the song with changes she has concocted.

  10. harismacordero said:

    1. Scene 1:
    This scene is exterior/ interior Billy goes to his ex-wife’s house to get his daughter. The ex-wife calls the daughter, while Casey goes down, they sit in a couch with the ex-wife and the current husband of the ex-wife and talk about the team. The scene ends when they leave the house, then they go to a guitar shop.
    Scene 2:
    Casey (daughter) and Billy enter the guitar shop. She starts looking at guitars and sings to him. They talk about what the kid has heard about her father. Scene ends when Billy buys Casey the guitar she liked.
    Scene 3:
    This scene is an INT. scene. It takes place in the locker room. Grady (a scout) starts talking to Billy about Pete in private. The scene ends with Grady telling BILLY to fuck off, and Billy firing him.

    2. Interior scenes outweigh exterior ones. Even though the story is about baseball, the hero in the story does not assist to the games. Also the story is mainly about the rules of the game, logistics, etc. and not the game per say. This is why most of the exterior scenes are either transitions or just few parts of the game.
    3. Most of the transitions used in the movie are just cutting the scene and directly passing to the other one. There are no special effects to go from one scene to the other.

    4.
    INT. SCOTT HATTERBERG’S HOUSE – NIGHT
    BILLY and RON WASHINGTON visit SCOTT HATTERBERG to tell him about his offer. They sit at the living room.
    BILLY:
    You have played as a catcher your whole life?
    SCOTT:
    Since I was 8
    BILLY:
    How’s the elbow?
    SCOTT:
    Good. Real good. It’s great. I can’t throw at all.
    BILLY:
    You’ve thrown your last balls from behind the plate. The good news is we want you to play in first base for the Oakland A’s.
    SCOTT:
    But, I have only played as a catcher.
    BILLY:
    You’re not a catcher anymore, or I wouldn’t be the only call you’ve got.
    I know you don’t know how to play first base, but it’s not hard. Tell him Wash.
    WASHINGTON:
    It’s incredibly hard!
    BILLY:
    Anything worth doing is. Wash will teach you.
    SCOTT:
    What a minute, I’m I going to take Giambi’s place at first? What about the fans?
    WASHINGTON:
    Yeah, maybe I can teach one of them.
    BILLY:
    Fans don’t run my ball club.
    SCOTT’s daughter goes to the living room in her pijamas. He presents her.
    BILLY:
    Scott, this is a contract to play ball with the Oakland A’s. A copy has been sent to your agent. Discuss it with your wife and let us know. Merry Christmas (while walking outside).

  11. 1.

    1st. When Billy first notices Peter Brand at the office of Cleveland management and ends when Billy hires Peter to work for him.

    3rd. Begins when the team needs to substitute 3 of their greatest player Giambi, Damon, Jason. Ends up with the hiring of low waged players for the Athletics.

    2. There are definitely more interior that exterior, reason why is because the movie takes place in the office and is mainly about strategies, statistics, a professional team’s management. It mainly goes to EXT scenes to support ideas by thoughts generated from INT scenes.

    3. Cut to other scenes, and sometimes fade in/out, this keeps a simple structural layout according to the nature of the movie.

    2.Do exterior scenes outweigh interior scenes or vicerversa? Why is that?
    Interior scenes outweigh exterior scenes because the movie is based on what goes on in the backstage of the game, the management of the Oakland A’s and so most of the scenes are staged interiorly.

    Upon entrance he looks at his surroundings, a room filled with tapes of games and the equipment necessary.
    Cut to Peter setting up his laptop computer next to an old desktop computer that was already there. He turns on the old computer then grabs the baseball he brought with him and starts to play with it in his hands. Peter exhales and has the semblance of a person who is about to engage in hard work.

  14. Jose Abraham Baez Gil said:

    1. Define the beginning and end of at least three complete sequences.

    Sequence 1.
    Electric Guitar plays national anthem of the US before the baseball game starts.

    Sequence 2.
    Bill is working out in the gym.

    Sequence 3.
    Bill drives the car while talking on the phone.

    2. Do exterior scenes outweigh interior scenes or vicerversa? Why is that?
    Interior scenes outweigh exterior scenes due to the fact that the main characters of the film occur in interior scenes mostly because they perform at a decision making and managerial level rather than outside in the stadium as baseball players.

    1. Define the beginning and end of at least three complete sequences.

    Sequence 1: Billy while is driving his car puts an audio of his daughter singing a beautiful song called Im just a little bit, so he starts to think while listening to the song.

    Sequence 2: Jonah plays a video of Jeremy brown secret home run which Billy doesn’t understand but Jonah is explaining him the techniques behind the strategy.

    Sequence 3: Everything starts with the display of many photos of Bean as a kid and a scout talking with Billy parents about his incredible abilities in baseball.

    2. Do exterior scenes outweigh interior scenes or vice versa? Why is that?
    The scenes in the interior outweigh the scenes in exterior due to the movie environment which is backstage the game which is where the Office of Beane is located and every decision he makes is surrounds in the interior.

    3. Describe what transitions between scenes are used the most.
    I think the scenes that the director used the most is cut to scene.

    4. Write at least one scene as seen in the movie. Make it as close as possible

    Int. Music store – Day time
    His daughter is asking for a guitar in the store and Billy Beane tells his daughter to play with one, then she started to singing in an amazing way and Billy was very impressed.

    1-
    Sequence #1
    The beginning shows Billy and his daughter in the kitchen. His daughter asks him whether it was true that he was going to lose his job and the sequence ends.

    Sequence #2
    The sequence begins presenting the baseball game between the Oakland Athletics and the Yankees. The sequence ends once the scene cuts into another sequence showing a meeting taking place.

    Sequence #3
    The sequence begins with Grady and Billy having a private conversation about Pete. The ending shows conflict between Grady and Billy, and Grady gets fired.

    2-
    There are more interior scenes than exterior scenes in the movie. This is because the storyline is mostly focused on baseball team management and there are many scenes placed indoors. There are few scenes that are actually out on the baseball field.

    3-
    The type of transition between scenes that was used the most was cut-to.

    4-
    Int. Car
    Billy is driving his car and then decides to play a CD he had in one of the car’s compartments.

    DAUGHTER:
    Hey dad, this is the song I told you I’d record. Please don’t show to anyone else.
    Let me know if you change your mind and decide to stay in California. If not.. you were a really great dad.
    *start singing “The Show” by Lenka”

    ends when Billy goes to his house
    Sequence 2:

    Sequence 3:
    Begin when Billy goes to his ex’s wife house
    Ends when he goes to the store with his daughter
    2)
    Interior scenes outweigh exterior scenes because all the importance of the movie happens during interior scenes. The movie is about managing a baseball game. The decisions that are taken in the interior scene are the essence of the movie.
    3)
    The transition that is used more often is cut to scene. But the movie also uses fade out/in sometimes.
    4)
    Int. Bill’s car
    September 4, 2002
    Bill’s phone rings and he picks up

    Sharon: Well I didn’t actually expect you to pick up. I was going to leave a message. Um. Anyways Case and I we’re here and we’re watching the game from home and um I just wanted to say, you did good Billy. We’re really proud of you.
    Billy: I appreciate it Sharon. Thank you
    Sharon: Good luck. Casey wants to talk to you hang on.
    Casey: Hey are you on your way to the stadium?
    Billy: No, I’m on my way to Visalia to see our minor league team

    Ends: Billy convinces Justice to get on board with the plan, after having traded Giambi and Pena so Art Howe would have to play Hatteburg.

    Do exterior scenes outweigh interior scenes or vice versa? Why is that?
    I believe that interior scenes seem to have more weight than the exterior scenes. This is because the moments where it all truly counted, the inspirations, the let downs, even the most hated moments of the film occurred with an interior scene. Apart from the obvious “calculations” taken by Pete and Billy, also the trades and most day to day activities occurred inside.

    Describe what transitions between scenes are used the most.
    Clearly the movie revolves around a massive amount of CUT TO: transitions. However there are also changes from day to day which are shown to be transitioned with FADE IN and FADE OUT.

    Write at least one scene as seen in the movie. Make it as close as possible.
    EXT. OUTSIDE STADIUM
    Pete is seen walking along side the front of the stadium. The banner with Giambi, Damon, and Isringhaisen are being taken down before training starts.
    CUT TO:
    INT. STADIUM HALLS
    Pete is seen walking towards the center of the building along the long silhouette hall.
    CUT TO:
    EXT. OUTSIDE STADIUM
    Banner are still being removed one by one.
    CUT TO:
    INT. OUTSIDE OF EXECUTIVE OFFICES
    Pete is seen dialing a number on the wall phone just outside the glass door.

  19. 1
    Sequence 1: A sequence with a flashback that begins with young Billy Bean being hunted by professional baseball scouts and making a choice regarding Stanford and baseball, ends with him walking in the rain.
    Sequence 2: begins when billy is watching a game on the TV and the team loses, it ends when he goes into the locker and throws the bat.
    Sequence 3: begins when Billy and pit go to the owner of the Athletics, ends when he talks to the coach and trades Jeremy Giambi in front of him.
    2
    Most of the scenes are interior scenes, Money ball is a baseball movie that is not about baseball but about what occurs behind the stadium dealing with the management of the teams.
    3
    The transition used the most is the simple but effective cut-to, and to a lesser extent fade-to.
    4
    INT. INDIANS OFFICES
    Billy bean walks out of the elevator, notices the man in the meeting looking at him and he goes to sit with him.

    Peter Brand

    What did you tell bruce?
    Peter Brand
    Ohh I told him I like Garcia.
    Billy Bean
    Why?
    Peter Brand
    For the same reason you do?
    Billy Beane
    And what is that?
    Peter Brand
    He was undervalued.
    Billy Beane
    Why do you say that?
    Billy signals Peter to go outside.

    2. Do exterior scenes outweigh interior scenes or vicerversa? Why is that?
    Interior scenes outweigh exterior scenes because they are way more interior scene and because the movie is about what happened back stage of the baseball game the tactics and emotions behind the game.

    The most used transition was cut to but they also used from time to time fade in and fade out.

    Sequence 3: Begins when Billy gets to the office and meets with Pete to talk about scouting new members for the team and laying off others, and ends when Billy goes into the lockers and tells the team that they are winners.

    2. Do exterior scenes outweigh interior scenes or vicerversa? Why is that?

    Interior scenes outweigh exterior scenes because the movie is mostly about how to manage a team and the trouble managers go through when building it, so most of the movie takes place inside offices and buildings.

    3. Describe what transitions between scenes are used the most.

    The transition used the most is cut to scene.

    4. Write at least one scene as seen in the movie. Make it as close as possible.

Then, he cries and the scene ends with various fades-in quoting what happened to Billy and to the Red Sox after the movie was shot. (This was the last scene of the movie)

    2. Do exterior scenes outweigh interior scenes or vicerversa? Why is that?
    Interior scenes outweigh exterior scenes because the plot of the movie is majorly done in administrative baseball offices, discussing the the reality of this sport and its players.

    1.

    Scene 1:

    Billy Bean is in the conference room with his advisors. They begin to find plausible replacements and substitutes to the players they have now lost due to free agency. Bean starts to get irksome, and realizes that the same methodology that has been implemented throughout the years has failed and brought nothing positive or even innovative. He then exits the room in a contentious fashion.

    Scene 2:

    Bean is in the Cleveland Indians waiting room. He’s called by the secretary and asked to enter the G.M.s office. There he’s greeted by a mob of analysts’ in his attempt to trade some of his players. It’s at this point where he meets Peter Brand, whom seems to control top-management’s decision. Billy is pissed to see that all his propositions are shut down. We fast-forward to the part when Billy is on the phone telling Brand that he should pack his bags, because he has just been brought by the Oakland A’s.

    Scene 3:

    Interior of the car, Billy gets a call from his wife. He then starts talking to his daughter who tell him to watch the game, “there’s no way he can jinx it.” The sequence ends when the A’s finally win their 20th game in a row in what was a jaw clenching battle.

    2. Interior and exterior scenes depend largely on the type of story that is trying to be told. With a movie like money it is vital to show the birth of sabermetrics, a computer screen. But you also need the energy and passion that is brought by the picture of the actual baseball experience going on outside. Depending on the type of movie you should always, in my opinion, create a balance between outside and inside scenes. It may get tedious to be immersed inside rooms for 90 min. but it also may be too acquiescing regarding to intimacy and cumbersome interaction.

    3. Money ball uses a good amount of fading and cut to. Most of the movie takes place in doors and the movie is broken down into sections where the dividing force are ‘fade to black,’ with a title appearing as guidance.

    4. INT. CLUB

    Peter: Think fast
    Billy: What the hell was that?
    Peter: Sorry
    Billy: C’mon.
    Peter: So how was Boston?
    Billy: Boston was Boston.
    Peter: How much they offer you?
    Billy: It doesn’t matter.
    Peter: How much?
    Billy: It doesn’t matter?
    Peter: How much?
    Billy: Here

    Billy hands Peter revealing the offer Boston gave him

    Peter: Wow, impressive. This would make you the highest paid general manager in all of sports history.

    Do exterior scenes outweigh interior scenes or vicerversa? Why is that?

    Interior scenes outweigh exterior scenes because most of the acting time in the movie is inside the stadium offices where Billy and his staff works the inside of what putting a team together is all about.

    Describe what transitions between scenes are used the most.

    Cut-to scene are the most used transitions in the movie.

    M: Its been good, only 3 weeks on the job. How are you holding up. You just lost 3 of your best players in Damon, Giambi, and Isringhausen.
    B: That was tough.
    M: What are you looking for.

    A young man, Peter, talks to one of Mark assistants and the assistant whispers something to Mark ears. Mark nods a yes with his head.

    M: I can’t give Garcia, sorry Billy. What else you got in mind.
    B: Ohh, Come on Mark.

    2nd Sequence: It is the transfer deadline day, Beane and his assistant are looking to get Ricardo Rincon, they make various phone calls to other GM’s from other teams, in order to make the right moves to get enough money to acquire Rincon.

And his failure in Major League Baseball, he decides to call Peter asking him if he would have drafted him. They have a short conversation and Beane tells him that he bought him from the Indians.
    2.) Interior scenes outweigh exterior scenes, because the movie show us the industry of baseball, how everything works off the field. What happens in the locker room, in the GM’s office, the team owner’s office and more on.
    3.) Fade in and fade out, would be the favorite choice of the director of this movie

    Peter Brand: What?
    Billy Beane: After we talked, you looked me up. Would you have drafted me in the first round?
    Peter Brand: Yeah, I did. You were pretty good.
    Billy Beane: Cut the crap, Pete. Would you have drafted me in the first round?
    Peter Brand: I would have picked you in the 9th round. No signing bonus. I think that would have convinced you to accept that scholarship.
    Billy Beane: Pack your bags, Pete. I just bought you from the Cleveland Indians.

I’m just a little girl lost in the moment. I’m so scared but I don’t show it. I can’t figure it out, it’s bringing me down. I know I’ve got to let it go and just enjoy the show

    1st sequence:
    Starts: The game between the Athletics and the Yankees
    Ends: The stadium and the lockers of the Athletics are shown to us .
    The sequence ends with the coach destroying his radio after the Athletics are beaten by the Yankees.

    2nd sequence:
    Starts: when Billy goes to his ex wife’s house to pick up his daughter
    Ends: Billy and his daughter in a guitar shop where she sings for him and plays the guitar.

    3rd sequence:
    Starts: Billy is presented playing baseball for the Mets, having a rough time due to his constant failures, even though he is an extremely good athlete.
    Ends: Billy in the dough out after being punched out.

    2.) Interior scenes outweigh because what goes on behind closed doors is what gives essence to the movie.

    3.) The transitions mostly used are cut to scene and fade in and fade out.

    4.) Billy talks to his ex wife and daughter on the phone.

    Sharon: Good luck. Casey wants to talk to you.

    Casey: Are you on your way to the stadium?

    Billy: I’m on my way to Vancouver to see the
    Canadians.

    Casey: What’s so special about Canadians?

    Billy: The Canadians. Our minor league team in
    Vancouver.

    Casey: Turn the car around and go to the game.

    Billy: No, I really should go to Vancouver.

    Casey: If you really wanted to go to Vancouver
    you wouldn’t be driving.

    Billy: The airport’s snowed-in in Vancouver.

    Casey: And what happens when I go on the
    internet and find out it’s not?

    Billy: You can do that?

    Casey: You might make history today, dad. You’re
    really gonna miss it? Turn around. Call
    me after the game.

    The phone clicks off.

    End: When he trades all players and makes the coach play those players
    2. Do exterior scenes outweigh interior scenes or vicerversa? Why is that?
    There are many more interior scenes then exterior ones. So yes they do outweigh them. This is due to the fact that it has more to do with management more than anything else so most things are interior scenes.

    3. Describe what transitions between scenes are used the most.
    The most used transition is cut scenes and fading out and in when he remembers his past. It always preceded by a noise of talking or him hitting a baseball.
    4. Write at least one scene as seen in the movie. Make it as close as possible.
    Billy Walks out of the meeting
    Peter hides in his cubicle
    Billy is walking to Peter Cubicle
    Billy: Who are you?
    Peter: Peter Brand
    Billy: No, really who are you?
    Peter: I’m just Peter Brand
    Billy: What happened in there?
    Peter: What do you mean?
    Billy: Why happened in there? Why do they listen to you?
    Peter: I just said I liked sanchez

    2. Do exterior scenes outweigh interior scenes or vicerversa? Why is that?
    Interior scenes outweigh the exterior scenes because even though the movie is about baseball, it is given from the management of the team’s point of view, from the offices, where they hire and exchange players.

    3. Describe what transitions between scenes are used the most.
    The transition most used is cut to scene.

    4. Write at least one scene as seen in the movie. Make it as close as possible.
