New boy presentation

  1. 1. New Boy <br />http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FdeioVndUhs<br />Rebecca Cobb<br />
  2. 2. About the film<br />Drama/Comedy. Real Life?<br />Released 2007<br />Directed by Steph Green<br />
  3. 3. Micro elements: Camera angle, movement and position<br />Position- behind Joseph (over the shoulder shot), then camera turns to face him <br />Medium shots- at the beginning of the film to introduce Joseph to us, almost as if he is being revealed<br />Close-ups- intimate shots, shows their facial expression so we can work out their emotions <br />Camera zooms on Joseph- as he begins to daydream<br />Long shot- show us more of the locations<br />Low angles- give characters appearance of more power <br />
  4. 4. Depth of field<br />Lots of narrow depth of fields- used to put the focus on certain characters<br />Beginning of the film- when we first meet Joseph, only he is in focus<br />
  5. 5. Framing <br />Mainly just characters in the frame, with background out of focus<br />Facial expressions of other pupils can still be made out<br />Just character’s face in frame- if its more emotional<br />Rule of thirds has been followed<br />
  6. 6. Editing and Special Effects<br />Continuity editing<br />Match on action<br />Editing and sound used together- sound bridge on change of scenes from Irish school to African school<br />Transitions-simple cuts<br />Composition-mainly characters in the foreground<br />
  7. 7. Mise-en-scene<br />Film set 2 locations- Ireland and Africa<br />Costume-used to show the difference in the two locations of the film and mean different things about the characters <br />Props-Irish school- books, pictures and drawing on the walls etc, school in Africa-basic furniture, chairs and tables and a blackboard, walls are bare, no books <br />Colour-different types of colours used in each location, to reflect Joseph’s feelings<br />Lighting- contrasting lighting in each location to show the moods of the film<br />
  8. 8. Sound<br />Mainly diegetic sound<br />Non diegetic sound- mood music<br />Sound of school children laughing and chatting- one of the first indications to where the film is set<br />Different music for when Joseph begins to daydream- repetitive, has a beat, hypnotic, dream like<br />Silences-add tension<br />
  9. 9. Script<br />Important to help develop the narrative<br />Dialogue-reflects how the children feel about Joseph<br />Regional dialogue- all the children are from Ireland except for Joseph, so it singles him out<br />
  10. 10. Titles/Institutional References<br /><ul><li>Font-all in capitals, ‘B’ is in bold and stands out from other letters
  11. 11. Positioned the left of the frame, with lots of space surrounding it
  12. 12. Black and white
  13. 13. Reference to the institution at beginning of film
  14. 14. Titles fade in and out
  15. 15. Obvious titles</li></li></ul><li>Macro elements-Genre specific elements, Codes and Conventions<br />Follows most of the codes and conventions of a drama<br />Camera angles and movement-used to show the characters feelings and emotions. <br />Follows the conventions of mise-en-scene<br />Sound-reflects mood of film<br />The film contains themes that many dramas have<br />The film has follows the convention of the narrative of the genre<br />Could be said that this film is more of a comedy-drama-contains humour and serious content<br />
  16. 16. Narrative<br />Josephs point of view-3rd person<br />Concept of time- day, learn about the past through Joseph’s thoughts<br />Characters-move narrative along<br />Linear structure<br />
  17. 17. Representations <br />Set in present day, but does look back at the past<br />Joseph- typical school boy, trying to fit in somewhere new<br />Teacher-strict, has authority, caring<br />Naughty school boys-typical trouble makers<br />Follows stereotypes<br />Todorov's theory of equilibrium is followed<br />Gender and status are represented<br />Audience are able to identify with characters<br />
  18. 18. Audience<br />Target audience-teenagers and adults<br />Constructed to appeal to audiences- realistic and sends out a message<br />Positive response to film<br />The audience are being asked to identify, sympathise with Joseph<br />
  19. 19. Themes<br />Themes-racial prejudice, tragedy, loss, confrontation, bullying, acceptance and friendship<br />Teaching us to be more accepting<br />Comments on society-wedon’t let people in <br />Means our society needs to change and we need to learn to put ‘differences’ aside <br />
