  • 8. MISE EN SCENE CINEMATOGRAPHY EDITING AGE SOUND1. Who is being represented in this clip?2. Are they being represented as superior or inferior? (Support this answer with evidence from the next question)3. Pick one point from each micro element to comment on how this social group is being represented.EXT: How does this clip construct a stereotypical representation of this social group?
  • 9. P.E.E.• Now write a PEE for at least two points• From your notes• Point – your comment about the area of representatione.g. Youth is represented through diegetic sound.• Evidence – your micro element that tells us thise.g. The dialogue is colloquial.• Explain – link the twoe.g. This conforms to a stereotypical view of young teenagers, that they are rebellious in speaking their own language.
  • 10. Answers• Youth is represented through mise en scene. We can see this by the way the characters have an awkward gap between them filled by the table to show the divide between the young and the old. This conforms to a stereotypical view as there is a difference between they young and the old, shown by the distance between the two age differences.
  • 11. Answers• Youth is represented through camerawork. We can see this by the way the younger characters are filmed with a high angle and the older characters with a low angle to show superiority between the two different ages. This conforms to a stereotypical view of the idea that the older generation look down on the younger generation disapprovingly.

  • 13. How could age be represented through sound?
  • 14. How could age be represented through mise en scene?

  • 17. January paper - Section A TV DRAMA
  • 18. Marking Criteria Terminology Frequent and Accurate use of 10 media terminology Use of Examples Consistent evidence from the extract offered. Offers frequent relevant examples from the extract 20Analysis/Explanation Clear analysis of how the technical aspects are used to construct the particular representation 20 Understanding of the constructed nature of representation
  • 19. Strong ResponsesUse note taking effectively and were well practiced in working undertimed conditions.Understood the constructed nature of representation and were ableto explore this through all four micro elementsUsed media terminology frequently. Selected the most relevant examples form the extract and analysedhow the technical aspects constructed age.Could see the range of representations rather than ‘old’ and ‘young’Considered whether these representation were conformed to orsubverted stereotypesWeak ResponsesDescribed the action rather than analysedFocused primarily on one area and neglect othersStray from the relevant question- discuss gender/social class etcWere concerned with TV Drama as genre rather than focus onrepresentationUse terminology rarely or inaccuratelyWrite a short response, intro and conclusion included

  • 21. P.E.E.• Now write a PEE for at least two points• From your notes• Point – your comment about the area of representatione.g. Youth is represented through diegetic sound.• Evidence – your micro element that tells us thise.g. The dialogue is colloquial.• Explain – link the twoe.g. This conforms to a stereotypical view of young teenagers, that they are rebellious in speaking their own language.
  • 22. Answers• Youth is represented through diegetic sound. We can see this due to the screaming of the students being in hysterics and the colloquial language used. This conforms to the stereotype of young people as over dramatic and having their own language to speak in.
  • 23. Answers• Youth is represented through use of editing techniques. We can see this by the way they use slow edits for the older generation and quick, fast paced edits for the younger characters. This conforms to the stereotype of young people being frantic and hard to deal with in dangerous situtions.
  • 24. Editing SoundWeakest area of analysis. Some candidates Was tackled well by some but too muchmaking no reference at all. focus on dialogue.Stronger responses discussed the use 180- Clear distinction between diegetic anddegree rule and continuity editing. non-diegetic sound by some candidates. These candidates also referred to eyelinematches, shot reverse shot, simultaneous Need to address use of music in moreaction and use of ellipsis. detail-tempo, pace, sound bridges and linkAlso some discussed the pace of editing to specifically to representation.represent ageMise-en-scene CinematographyOften very well discussed but at times too Well handled by most with the mostmuch focus on this area.
