Comedy films

  1. 1. Exploring genre Comedy
  2. 2. What is a comedy film? Comedy film is a genre of film in which the main emphasis is on humour. These films are designed to entertain the audience through amusement, and often work by exaggerating characteristics of real life for humorous effect.
  3. 3. Genre conventions in a trailer Video was not exported from SlideRocket
  4. 4. The Intership This trailer is typical of the comedy genre and includes... humour/jokes sarcasm awkward characters shocks to characters which audience finds humorous Characters being put into situations that they are the 'odd ones out' Play on words Geeks overly descriptive sentences emphasising a small point mocking society slapstick comedy
  5. 5. Would I be able to make a comedy film trailer? Comedy films do not often require advanced editing sofware and special effects for explosions as they rely on humour to entertain. I would be capable of producing a comedy film trailer, however, my concerns are as follows... What some people find funny others do not, comedy is subjective Comedy either works or it doesn't. Writing a comic film often sees experienced writers of comedy coming together to produce the final product. Without any previous experience writing for comedy I may struggle. Sometimes the actors look or personality can make them more comical. This would put very specific requirements on casting which may prove difficult for a small scale film.
