      • 1 – no note taking
      • 2 – notes on cinematography

      • 4 – both – pick up as much as you can
      You have 30 minutes to write your response http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I6GI3XIuO2Y
    • The importance of note taking
      • Examiners mark your notes!
      • A. Making yourself take notes forces you to listen and watch more carefully and test your understanding of the clip
      • B. When you are reviewing, notes guide you in writing a better and more detailed response
      • C. Personal notes help you remember more and in your own way so it makes more sense
    • How to take notes
      • Use key words instead of full sentences
      • Use abbreviations and symbols - but stay consistent
      • Use anagrams to help you remember
      • Make notes on as much as you can
      • Break it down – don’t look for everything at once

      • Point – your comment about the area of representation
      • e.g. Age is represented through cinematography .
      • Evidence – your micro element that tells us this
      • e.g. A low angle shot is used during the conversation with character of the ‘listener’.
      • Explain – link the two
      • e.g. By framing the listener in this connotes to the audience that the character is superior and wise, which conforms to a typical stereotype of an old middle aged man.

      • Point – your comment about the area of representation
      • e.g. Furthermore, the shot distance in cinematography is used to reinforce the Listener’s dominance.
      • Evidence – your micro element that tells us this
      • e.g. Nearing the end of the significant conversation the Listener moves tightly into the frame creating an extreme close-up of his face.
      • Explain – link the two
      • e.g. This reinforces his dominance as an older, wiser character and connotes to the audience the importance of his dialogue.

      • e.g. Age is represented through the use of diegetic sound .
      • Evidence – your micro element that tells us this
      • e.g. The younger character appears intimidated when the prison alarm sounds.
      • Explain – link the two
      • e.g. This conforms to a stereotypical view of young person who is vulnerable in a hostile environment

    •  
    • Sound Was tackled well by some but too much focus on dialogue. Clear distinction between diegetic and non-diegetic sound by some candidates. Need to address use of music in more detail-tempo, pace, sound bridges and link specifically to representation. Cinematography Well handled by most with the most confident use of terminology in this area. Problems for some in just identifying camera shots/angle/position and not linking this to the construction of representation.
    • You now have 30 minutes to write your response Analyse how AGE is represented through the use of cinematography and sound
    • PLENARY
      • What does AMPS stand for?
      • What does NoDSS stand for?
      • What does P.E.E. stand for?
      • Give me one way cinematography was used to represent age in the clip we watched
      • Give me one way sound was used to represent age in the clip we watched
    • Marking Criteria
      • Consistent evidence from the extract offered. Offers frequent relevant examples from the extract
      Frequent and Accurate use of media terminology Clear analysis of how the technical aspects are used to construct the particular representation Understanding of the constructed nature of representation 10 Terminology 20 20 Use of Examples Analysis/Explanation
      • Weak Responses
      • Described the action rather than analysed
      • Focused primarily on one area and neglect others
      • Stray from the relevant question- discuss gender/social class etc
      • Were concerned with TV Drama as genre rather than focus on
      • representation
      • Use terminology rarely or inaccurately
      • Write a short response, intro and conclusion included
      Strong Responses Use note taking effectively and were well practiced in working under timed conditions. Understood the constructed nature of representation and were able to explore this through all four micro elements Used media terminology frequently. Selected the most relevant examples form the extract and analysed how the technical aspects constructed age. Could see the range of representations rather than ‘old’ and ‘young’ Considered whether these representation were conformed to or subverted stereotypes
