What we learnt from the Bulgarian theorist is that some narratives start with a state of equilibrium when everything is normal. When everything is normal and get disrupted by a bad force the state of normality is changed to disequilibrium. After protagonists defeats antagonists the disequilibrium state goes back to normal. This is called new equilibrium.

What I learnt from Propp is that you can classify characters by their roles and actions. This links to our opening sequence, because the characters are all different and we could understand each actors key function.
What we learnt from Claude is that stories reflect values, myth and beliefs of culture. This is expressed in the form of “Binary Oppositions” In our opening sequence binary opposition will be used to show the main characters 2 qualities at different times. One showing her to be a weak person and then becoming more strong and independent. Weak Vs STRONG
