  • 1. Exploring genre Romance
  • 2. What is a romantic film? A romantic film has been defined as... "Romance films are romantic love stories recorded in visual media for broadcast in theatres and on television that focus on passion, emotion, and the affectionate romantic involvement of the main characters and the journey that their genuinely strong, true and pure romantic love takes them through dating, courtship or marriage. Romance films make the romantic love story or the search for strong and pure love and romance the main plot focus."

  • 5. Could I produce a romantic film trailer? After researching the genre conventions of a romantic film I have decided that creating a romantic film trailer would be achievable. Due to the storylines varying there are no specific requirements and with the storyline often focussed on two individuals casting is unlikely to prove an issue , neither would mystical creature production such as those seen in fantasy film's as they would not be required. A romantic film, therefore, would be simple to make in terms of mise en scene, with stereotypical props such as roses/flowers and rings easy to obtain.
