  • 1. Exploring genre Action and Adventure
  • 2. What is an action or adventure film? An action film has been defined as: A film genre in which one or more heroes are thrust into a series of challenges that typically include physical feats, extended fight scenes, violence, and frenetic chases. Action films tend to feature a resourceful character struggling against incredible odds, including lifethreatening situations, a villain, or a pursuit, which generally conclude in victory for the hero. An adventure film has been defined as: Adventure films are a very similar genre of film to action films, but unlike action films, they often use their action scenes preferably to display and explore exotic locations in an energetic way.

  • 6. Would I be able to produce an action film trailer? Action and adventure films often require highly professional editing techniques of which I do not have access to, this editing software is used to produce explosions, for example. They also often require large casts, stunt people and can see very dangerous scenes being shot. Without access to editing software of this standard and a cast of thousands or an experienced medical team it may be difficult to produce a quality film of this genre. What can be noticed is that most film's of this genre are often blockbuster films with large budgets, any independent action films often receive lower ratings due to the quality of the effects. I would rather produce a quality trailer, rather than try to make one that may not look as professional as another genre could on an independent film-makers budget.
