Sam's Evaluation - Question 1

  1. 1. A2 Advanced Production Evaluation<br />Sam Leimanis<br />
  2. 2. Question 1: in what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?<br />
  3. 3. How does the trailer USE conventions of real media products?<br />We used conventions by analysing existing trailers looking at actors, plots, music, how they’re constructed – for example the pace of cuts.<br />
  4. 4. Actors<br />The genre of our trailer is romantic comedy so the two lead characters will of course be male and female love interests. There’s often a conflict or problem keeping them apart which may be another character. The actors for these parts are usually familiar with this genre and become a convention in themselves as they star in so many.<br />
  5. 5. Storyline<br />The plot is often quite unrealistic with a narrative typical of Todorov’s theory in which the story fits a pattern of development – Equilibrium, Disequilibrium, and the New Equilibrium.<br />
  6. 6. Soundtrack<br />The music used solely in trailers is usually upbeat with lyrics that would relate to the storyline, such as in 500 Days of Summer, a film which gave me many ideas for our own trailer.<br />http://www.amazon.co.uk/500-Days-Summer-Various-Artists/dp/B002BAODSC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1302290840&sr=8-1<br />
  7. 7. Editing<br />Fast paced cuts keep the action interesting<br />http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQdy98B1nf0<br />
  8. 8. Our media product<br />Our plot was simple and typical to genre<br />We found examples of amateur trailers that were similar to our own ideas: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ikCk0u2QpuQ<br />
  9. 9. Rather than using a voice over like many existing films http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ILCB_f0IIyIwe chose to use titles screens to help our audience follow the plot<br />
  10. 10. The previous trailer also inspired some of our initial ideas for a soundtrack such as<br />• Hall & Oates – You Make my Dreams<br />• The Temper Trap – Sweet Disposition<br />And<br />• Mumm-ra – She’s Got you High, which made our cut<br />
  11. 11. Our poster<br />I researched into typical conventions included in romantic comedy film postershttp://sspa2media.blogspot.com/2011/01/today-we-began-researching-typical.html#comments<br />
  12. 12. Two main characters clearly shown<br />Details on when the films are out<br />Romantic setting in the background<br />Actors names clearly stated<br />Both incorporate two colours into the title<br />
  13. 13. Our magazine cover<br />To begin with I had to find the conventions of a typical film magazine cover<br />http://sspa2media.blogspot.com/2011/02/in-preparation-for-creating-our-own.html<br />
  14. 14. Despite the two different genres of film...<br />Easily recognisable title font<br />Main character is focus of image<br />Films from similar genre also on cover<br />Black, white and red colour codes<br />
