Describe what a thesis statement is and how it is used to structure your essay.
A thesis statement is the main idea for an essay that often times appears at the beginning of the paper in the first paragraph. The thesis is the author's main point or argument that they will be discussing and defending throughout their essay, and may be repeated at the end. It is meant to serve as the structure for how the essay will be written, providing a solid foundation for both the writer and the reader.

What are the elements of three point lighting, and what is its significance in filmmaking?
Three point lighting consists of a back light, a key light, and fill light. The backlight will illuminate the character from behind, while the key light is meant to be the main source of light. The fill light, as its name suggests, fills in the space and is used to control shadow. The significance of three point lighting is that it is the most basic and primary lighting technique in filmmaking, and each light can be adjusted individually or as a group to change the mood or tone of the set.
Please describe the differences between using "good" and "well" in a sentence.
"Good" works as an adjective, so it is meant to change the noun attached to it. "Well," on the other hand, is an adverb, so it works to change a verb. For example, when someone poses the question, "How are you?," we should be responding with "I am well" because you are feeling, which is a verb. If someone asks, "How did you like the food?," you can respond with "The food was good" because "good" is describing the food, which is a noun.
