GCSE Media Action Adventure Lesson 3 - pirates GCSE Media Action Adventure Lesson 3 - pirates Presentation Transcript

  • Thursday, 06 March 2014 Codes and Conventions LOs: • To consolidate knowledge of codes and conventions of the Action Adventure genre • To analyse the opening of an archetypal text
  • Re-cap How do we define action adventure? What are the differences that each word represents?
  • A film that features set pieces focusing on action (car chases, explosions, stunts) which follow an adventure narrative (a hero undertaking a quest)
  • How many of these films have you seen? In pairs, see if you can decide which are Action Adventure films.
  • Restoration of a New Equilibrium - Where normality is restored. Equilibrium - A sense of normality, the calm before the storm. Narrative – Tzvetan Todorov Attempt to repair Disruption - The point where the story changes: a death, an event, a situation. Recognition of Disruption
  • Vladimir Propp’s seven spheres of action: Hero: Individual(s) who's quest is to restore the equilibrium. Villain: Individual(s) who's task is to disrupt the equilibrium. Donor: Individual(s) who gives the hero(s) something, advice, information or an object. Helper: Individual(s) who aids the hero(s) with their set task. Princess (Prince): Individual(s) which need help, protecting and saving. Dispatcher: Individual(s) who send the hero(s) on their quest. False Hero: Individual(s) who set out to undermine the hero's quest by pretending to aid them. Often unmasked at the end of the film
  • Activity • Pick a well-known fairy tale from the list: – – – – Snow White Sleeping Beauty Jack and the Beanstalk Cinderella • Apply Todorov’s narrative theory: – Equilibrium – Disruption – Restoration • Apply Propp’s character types and comment on their traits.
  • Watch the Following Clip • Fill in the work sheet. • Commenting on the narrative structure of the clip – apply Todorov’s theory. • Commenting on the different character types that you can see. Are they stereotypes? Apply Propp’s theory. • Are these conventional of the genre?
