Joel being an aboriginal boy, about to start a private school called Cliffton Grammar in the city, who would have not of known the Australian anthem because of his background and cultural beliefs, With Rachael Perkins able to shot the close up of Joel and some students being blurred to make the audience focus on Joel’s emotions of being confused and thinking that the lyrics don’t really represent his background and thinking what is the purpose of this anthem? and why does this have to be sung everyday?

Mr Moore, Mrs Macann and Mr Parrish walking quickly to demand answers from Joel of why he is still refusing to sing the anthem. Rachel Perkins was able to have a close up shot for all teachers walking fiercely and quickly to Joel with Mrs Macann’s expression looking frustrated and angry, makes us feel angry and disappointed that she is not accepting and respecting what he believes in. The long shot of Joel was really clever with it looking like the teachers walking towards him, the expression all teachers would show the audience that Joel will get in a lot of trouble and will be facing high consequences. This makes the audience feel as though Mrs Macann is using her power to not accept and be considerable about Joel’s different beliefs.

A low angle shot of Mrs Macann, Joel and the security guard, shows the expression of Mrs Macann and the security guard looking surprised and definitely shocked to see that there is a photographer. The expression of Joel looking down at the photographer could see that he has a right to stand up for himself and his family and that he will not give up to be able to stay at this school and still have his scholarship and that he was one step away from coming back and with this photo could help him from the public or goes downhill.

Mr Parrish and Mrs Macann looking confused and a bit frustrated at Joel for still sitting down and refusing to sing the anthem. In this scene Rachel Perkins was able to do a side close up of Mr Parrish and Mrs McCann looking down at Joel but still singing the anthem made both of their expressions show they’re questioning why Joel would still refuse to sing the anthem like the rest of the students. This shows that Mr Parrish, Mrs McCann and Joel have multiple perspectives and different reasons of him refusing to sing and that he should be singing like the other students.

Rachel Perkins made long shot of all the students that are standing up for Joel, the expressions of the students were angry, frustrated and annoyed by Mrs Macann still not asking and bringing Joel back to school. This shows that students are wanting power for themselves and wants to be respected by what they believe and not to be changed and that everyone should be happy and respected by it. This will change our world to a better place by everyone respecting and accepting other people’s beliefs and cultures no matter if they disagree by it.

With Mrs Macann expelling Joel, Rachel Perkins made this scene to makes the audience see Mrs Macann is now against everyone, with the long shot at the start of Mr Parrish leaving the room straightaway with nothing to say to Mrs Macann and by that shot at the end of the close up of Gillian Jones could see the emotion of her questioning herself if she did the right thing and if she was being too harsh to Joel and their family for just some anthem that doesn’t really represent Joel’s culture and background. This means that everyone has their own rights in their culture and in life aswell.

8) Finally and happily back to how it should be

8) Finally and happily back to how it should be

The close up of Joel coming back to school made the audience look and focus on Joel’s expressions as being excited, happy and relieved that he is back to school and Mr Parrish and his classmates are welcoming him and happy and surprised to see him, this shows that even you have got power over people, you still need to be respected and understand that everyone has different beliefs and that can’t change just cause of an anthem and what they truly believe in and disagree with. Rachael Perkin successfully made this episode connect to what it is called that is “Stand Up” because of Joel standing up for himself, his family and his community and that he will wont give up for his beliefs and that nobody can change that. This tells us that standing up for our culture, beliefs and family is the right thing to do and that no one should not respect and just accept what they believe in because no everyone believes in the same thing or no one disagrees with the same thing too.
