  • IntroductionsExplain this is an evaluationIntroduce them to our production company Olive Films an independent british production compayTheme/subject matter Comedy
  • GenreOur film is a cross between a socially realist comedy like Little Miss Sunshine and Step brothers extreme characters. We have aimed our teen drama/comedy at teens from the ages of 14-18 because it has humor that will appeal to those ages.
  • Our film doesn’t challenge many conventions. The only thing that could be considered breaking a convention is the fact that we explored mental health in teenage lives, this could be considered breaking a convention because we tried to put this across comically by using contrapuntal music to add an element of humor. We didn’t challenge any filmic conventions we used Match on Action and used Jump cuts to illustrate our ideas and the characteristics of each character. The forms and conventions we used didn’t weren’t contradicting other media products. We filmed it conventionally using medium, large and close up shot sizes and included jump cuts. This doesn’t really break any conventions.
  • Our film doesn’t challenge many conventions. The only thing that could be considered breaking a convention is the fact that we explored mental health in teenage lives, this could be considered breaking a convention because we tried to put this across comically by using contrapuntal music to add an element of humor. Our film folows many of the conventions of teen comedies with the characters the use of mise en scene as well as using a modern song that the audience would identify with
  • Although our media product sticks to the themes and conventions of feature films. We would like to think that we have broken the boundary of showing mental health in comedy. Our film introduces two characters who are the direct opposites of each other. One of the characters being obsessively clean to the point of OCD, and the other being completely scruffy and disgusting. I feel that this product could appeal to teenage groups because it introduces mental health in to a teenage genre.
  • -A lot of films in the comedy genre open their films with music that attracts the audiences. For example Step Brothers uses A punk by Vampire Weekend to set the tone of their film. We did this too by trying to set an atmosphere for the film.
  • We used bright contrasting colours with each of the characters to match their characters. The neat twin has light pastel coulered things around her in this shot, where as the scruffy twin has red and black things sorrounding her. We did this to give insight in to their characters.
