Transcript

  • 1. A2 Advanced Production Evaluation
    Sam Leimanis
  • 2. Question 1: in what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?
  • 3. How does the trailer USE conventions of real media products?
    We used conventions by analysing existing trailers looking at actors, plots, music, how they’re constructed – for example the pace of cuts.
  • 4. Actors
    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.
  • 5. Storyline
    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.
  • 6. Soundtrack
    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.

  • 7. Editing
    Fast paced cuts keep the action interesting

  • 8. Our media product
    Our plot was simple and typical to genre
    We found examples of amateur trailers that were similar to our own ideas: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ikCk0u2QpuQ
  • 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
  • 10. The previous trailer also inspired some of our initial ideas for a soundtrack such as
    • Hall & Oates – You Make my Dreams
    • The Temper Trap – Sweet Disposition
    And
    • Mumm-ra – She’s Got you High, which made our cut
  • 11. Our poster
    I researched into typical conventions included in romantic comedy film postershttp://sspa2media.blogspot.com/2011/01/today-we-began-researching-typical.html#comments
  • 12. Two main characters clearly shown
    Details on when the films are out
    Romantic setting in the background
    Actors names clearly stated
    Both incorporate two colours into the title
  • 13. Our magazine cover
    To begin with I had to find the conventions of a typical film magazine cover

  • 14. Despite the two different genres of film...
    Easily recognisable title font
    Main character is focus of image
    Films from similar genre also on cover
    Black, white and red colour codes
