Example Essay Plan

  1. 1. Yr13 Help with essay structure What aspects of a film determine its genre? Refer to at least 2 films Just because it says refer to at least 2 films that does not mean refer to just 2 films; you should try to refer to more than 2 films. So first of all before you try to answer an exam question you need to write a plan, a mini structure, or it may not even be structure but a list of things that you need to cover to successfully answer the question. So my plan was: I need to cover the key concepts LIAR 1. Media Languages Need to discuss genre conventions in relation to key concepts 2. Institution Discuss 1 with reference to genre conventions so how my 3. Audience case studies all utilise similar elements iconography, setting, 4. Representation characters, lighting, camerawork, sound and theme but don’t discuss case studies systematically but the conventions Define genre – how is genre defined? Introduction e.g. through it’s conventions, which are the rules, the blueprint, used by industry, recognised by audience Reference case studies that fit genre safely/ consistently SCREAM, CREEP, PSYCHO, and HALLOWEEN my examples for genre conventions Problematise genre can all films fit a clear definition of genre? SAW, (SCREAM) Mixing conventions creates hybrids bring in the problems of genre theory if all films were the same defining genre would be easy typical genres evolve over time and the way the audience respond to genre films also changes therefore there is a need to constantly redefine genre the blueprint can change leading to a conclusion So how would I implement this plan?
