  • 1. Exploring genre Fantasy
  • 2. What is a fantasy film? Fantasy films are films with fantastic themes, usually involving magic, supernatural events, make-believe creatures, or exotic fantasy worlds. The genre is considered to be distinct from science fiction film and horror film, although the genres do overlap. Fantasy films often have an element of magic, myth, wonder, escapism, and the extraordinary.

  • 5. Could I make a fantasy film trailer? Yes, it is possible for me to produce a fantasy film trailer providing that I had a few costumes and good locations in which I could shoot my trailer. I'd need a streotypicallly young cast, this may be difficult as young people can be difficult to direct and work with. Other potential issues may include bad weather on the days of filming which will affect the mood of the shots. If a fantasy/mythical creature was included in the storyline a costume could be created using different fabrics/old clothes, for example.
