Homework 2 Prompt 3

I think my reaction to one of Gaspard Robertson’s “ Fantasmagorie” shows in 1797 would be fascinated but at the same time scared because I think that at that time people did not have much entertainment and because of that not much innovation on theater or shows. I think “Fantasmagorie” would catch the attention and many people would be scare on being in a room with ghosts and demons all over the place. One form of entertainment that would elicit the same emotions today can be Halloween horror nights at Universal Orlando because the theme is all about scare people and you walk through a haunted village so you are aware the whole time because you know you can see ghosts and demons and scary things at any moment. I saw at that place a show that comes to my mind when I think of Gaspard Robertson’s show and it is about a clown and the images were project on fountains of water and the lights and sound were the center of attention too.
