Sytangmatics could be defined as the element within a musical presentation, dealing with construction of sentences and phrases in original languages. The analysis of syntagmatics seeks to establish the usage of language within an audio presentation. A paradigmatic analysis, on the other hand, seeks to analyze the paradigms embedded onto a presentation. The paradigms within a film present the core from where syntagms become created. Numerous discrepancies exist between the production of the film and the original stage performance of Rent. The presentations contain syntagmatic and paradigmatic discrepancies within the elements contained in the presentation.
Though the fill could be identified as an adoption of the musical, there exist several syntagmatic and paradigmatic differences between the two presentations. The setting for the original presentation occurs in the nineteenth century, essentially displaying the existing elements of the time. While the original presentation indicated Mimi (a character in both presentations) as suffering from tuberculosis, the adoption presented the sickness as HIV/AIDS. The setting for these presentations could be accredited with the different presentation of the sickness.
While tuberculosis might have been common in the nineteenth century, the prevalence of HIV/AIDS in the twentieth century presented a surmountable challenge. While presenting a similar paradigm in sickness, a syntagmatic difference occurs through presentation of different sickness from the original presentation. The timing of the presentation necessitated the change as majority of the characters, presented in the adoption, suffer from HIV/AIDS infection. Several songs within the theatre presentation do not appear in the film. The length of the original theatre script became an element that required numerous changes in production of the film. Several versions of the script continued to be presented through the years before completing the motion picture.
Numerous productions continued to be created through the years in seeking to compose a final script containing the desired elements of the developed film. In making the motion picture, numerous changes became imminent to the structure of the theatre presentation. The success achieved from the theatre release appeared to entice the producers to work on the desired elements of the presentation. The background music used in the theatre presentation became transformed to spoken words in the film. The theme song for the motion picture became “Seasons of Love”, composed by Stevie Wonder. The motion picture contains fewer songs than the original Rent presentation.
Majority of the original soundtracks used in the theatre presentation became eliminated from the final motion picture presentation. The words presented in the songs used became spoken by the characters in the film. The theatrical presentation was performed in numerous languages within different countries. The film, however, only appeared in English language presenting a major language discrepancy between the presentations. The conversion of the script into a film included omission of several parts of the acts contained. While the theatre presentation contained countable number of characters, the film included numerous minor actors who were not present in the theatrical presentation.
The characters of the film represented the diverse cultures present in the New York population. While the original presentation continues to be adopted in different versions, the film has maintained its features, including the language. The message contained in these presentations continues in similar modality within both of these presentations.
The prevalent discrepancies, however, continues to distinguish these presentations from each other.
