  • 2. Match the Words and Definitions • You have a range of different narrative techniques. • You must match the key terms in the red box to the definitions.
  • 3. Narrative Techniques Match up Binary Oppositions Where the narrative has a definitive ending and all problems are solved. Multi-strand Where the narrative is open to be added on to; this could be in the form of a sequel. There isn’t a definitive ending. Open Narrative Where the narrative is left open with the audience not knowing what will happen next. It is used to keep the audience interested in the hope that they will watch on. Ellipsis A technique where the audience or the characters are led to believe something different; they are tricked or ‘led up the wrong garden path’. Circular Narrative Where a text builds up a feeling of anxiety and uncertainty about the outcome amongst the audience. This could be through music, editing or the characters’ actions. Closed Narrative Where there are a number of different stories within one media text. Cliffhanger Where the narrative goes full circle and the ending/resolution is the same as beginning/equilibrium. Red Herring A type of editing whereby a mixture of different shots/images, usually over time, are edited together to give the effect that time has passed. Suspense A theory thought up by Levi-Strauss whereby opposites are used to create conflict and drive the narrative forward. Montage A technique used to miss out big chunks of time.

  • 5. Bourne Identity • How did the film use Todorov’s structure? • What ‘stock characters’ were identifiable? • Which binary oppositions are included and what effect do they have? • Name three narrative techniques (from our starter) that you can apply to the film. • Challenge: What effect do the narrative techniques have for the audience?
  • 6. How are these being represented?
  • 7. Recap: What is Representation? • The way in which people, place or events are shown, portrayed or represented. • Representation goes through a process of mediation – to give a specific meaning. Key Words: Positive • Negative • Stereotype
