  • 1. Exploring genre Drama
  • 2. What is a drama film? A drama film has been defined as: A film genre that depends mostly on in-depth development of realistic characters dealing with emotional themes. Dramatic themes such as alcoholism, drug addiction, infidelity, moral dilemmas, racial prejudice, religious intolerance, sexuality, poverty, class divisions, violence against women and corruption put the characters in conflict with themselves, others, society and even natural phenomena.

  • 5. Could I produce a drama film trailer? A drama is essentially an engaging storyline with an emotional theme. This would therefore give me many options with the storyline. Casting would be easy as it is often focussed around realistic characters in realistic situations. A drama would probably be one of the best genres for me to produce as a drama sees several dramatic scenes which are often the key focus of a trailer. This would ensure hat my trailer appears like a trailer and would make it seem more professional, as trying to create mythical creatures may look unprofessional as the editing would not be up to the sophisticated standard of many blockbuster films. Although, this would not be an expectation of my trailer, I would rather produce a trailer that looks the most professional according to my limitations. This means making sensible decisions on genre.
