Research Planning 1a & Media Language 1b

  1. 1. Write out the following generic question in the middle of your page and annotate the keywords according to what you understand them to mean/stand for Problems How successful Solutions What I learned 0 Describe and evaluate your skills development over the course of your production work from the Foundation Portfolio to the Advanced Portfolio
  2. 2. Research and Planning for 1(a)0 What were the different processes that went into your pre-production work across AS and A2? 0 Different approaches to research/planning 0 How you recorded all of this 0 Audience consideration/research and its effect on the planning/production 0 Research into institutions 0 What you had to have in place before you went to film
  3. 3. Research and PlanningAS A2
  4. 4. What exactly IS Media Language?0 How a media text communicates meaning through 0 Camerawork 0 Editing 0 Mis-en-scene 0 Soundtrack0 Film uses verbal and written language as well as the languages of moving image0 Each form of communication has its own creative language – e.g. Camera close-ups convey intimacy or discomfort at being so near a subject, big fonts in the titles signal significance – MORI
  5. 5. Media Language0 Understanding the grammar, syntax and metaphor system of media language increases our appreciation and enjoyment of media experiences0 Example: The camera positioning in the shower scene of ‘Psycho’ places the viewer as a voyeur; in the first instance watching Marion as she washes and then positioning them as being able to foretell of her death at the hands of ‘Mother’.0 The camerawork constructs connotations of fear and suspense, two generic expectations
  6. 6. Semiotics – Barthes (1977)0 We last saw this theorist with Representation0 Key words 0 DENOTATION = Signifier [Visual/physical on screen] 0 CONNOTATION – Signified [Suggested or Culturally agreed meaning]0 John Fiske (1982) ‘denotation is what is filmed, connotation is how it is filmed.’
  7. 7. Media Language and Genre/Narrative0 Meaning is created through analysing the micro elements of a film 0 Camerawork – shot types, movement, composition of frame, angles 0 Soundtrack – diegetic, non-diegetic 0 Editing – organisation of scenes to create meaning – link to narrative. Continuity editing (match on action, 180 degree rule, S/R/S. Long or short takes? 0 Mis-en-Scene – Iconography, setting, lighting, costume and props0 Discuss how generic codes and conventions are displayed through the use of these micro elements in your film0 Stuart Hall (1980) – how you encoded meaning for your audience and what you wanted them to decode
  8. 8. Structure your WritingSuggestion 1 (if you think you might struggle with this Q)0 Separate out your essay to discuss the four technical elementsSuggestion 2 (if you think you can aim for high B/A)0 Separate out your essay to discuss the production process 0 Pre-production – research into generic codes and conventions, how you applied this in your location search and storyboarding 0 Production (filming) – how you applied camerawork codes and conventions into your filming, costume considerations, characterisation 0 Post-Production – use of your titles, how did your choice of font reflect certain connotations about your film? Soundtrack choices – did you add any foley (sound-effects/hyperbolic sounds) to your film? Voice/over? Diegetic/non-diegetic
