  • 2. Type of Documentary –Mixed
    Themes – Power of the media, making a career for an artist, manipulating the public to buy CDs and old vs. Young
    Narrative Structure –
    Non-linear: as the interviews are cut in different places throughout the documentary, so it isn’t in chronological order
    Single Strand: as there is only one narrative thread involving Meatloaf
    Closed: as all loose ends are tied and there is a clear ending

    The rest of the documentary -
    The documentary includes point of view shots when going into the betting office
    There is tracking when filming Meatloaf

    Segments of Meatloaf songs
    Sinister sounding music when talking about the graphics of the music discs
