    • 1. Film Genre by Marcia Wiggins
    • 2. Definition The genre of a film depends on the stereotypical factors it includes. A genre is created through the use of repetition and variation of film conventions such as setting, plot, casting, performance, mes-en-scene, cinematography, lighting, sound and editing. It is important for a film to have a clear genre as this helps within the production, exhibition and distribution of the film to a specific target audience. This makes the film more likely to be a success as it can be marketed correctly. After a period of time genres change and hybrids appear. (Hybrids are two or more genres which affiliate and create a variation of the original genre.)
    • 3. Comedy Comedies have a light-hearted plot and are always directed and written to amuse the audience. This is done by exaggerating situations, the language, action, relationships and characters. They include slapstick, spoofs, parodies and more.
    • 4. Adventure Adventure films have exciting stories and often include new experiences. They are very similar to or often paired with the action film genre. They are sometimes set in rainforests or deserts and include expeditions or treasure hunts.
    • 5. Horror Horror films are created to frighten the audience. This is one of the most popular film genres because it is designed to make the audience emotionally attached. People usually like the adrenaline rush created by the film provoking your worst fears and this captivates the audience for almost always the entire duration of the film.
    • 6. Action These are usually big-budget films because they commonly involve stunts, fights, special effects and star casts. They have a fast-paced storyline and typically have a linear narrative, easy for a wide audience to understand.
    • 7. Science Fiction This genre often has a storyline regarding scientific discoveries and technology of the future. It is not the most popular of film genres.
    • 8. Musicals Musicals include songs sung by the characters which help narrate the story to the audience, often along with dances. They can also to develop the character or simply aid in breaking up the storyline.
