Mood of film
What will the audience see and
Slow montage – similar to the Breakfast Club showing the
scene and giving away aspects of the rest of the film enticing
the audience to want to watch more.
Continuity sequence – We want to have this after a slow
montage to show this film is real life and to make it more
realistic and relatable to every day teenagers.
Audience will see the setting (college). We will use both
diegetic and non diegetic. We will use more non diegetic as
we want to audience to have a clear opinion on the film and
to know what is going on. We will also not want to confuse
Films that have influenced us
Breakfast Club – It influenced our film idea a lot. We were
influenced by the narrator (voice over),setting and theme of
the film. This film also sends a good message across the
young adults that we wanted to portray.
Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging – This film shows the
British element we want to portray in our film through the
school setting and the overall environment. This film also
influenced the culture, and characters we want in our film
Other films that influenced us are Juno, Submarine, Mean
Girls etc. These films influenced us as they all show
relationships between characters and give the overall teen
