Evaluation questions planning draft 1

  1. 1. EVALUATION QUESTIONS PLANNINGBy Debbie Marques, Maria Younes and Milka Erko
  2. 2. How does your media product (opening sequence) represent particular social groups?
  3. 3. 1.Who is being represented? Why? At first the girl is being represented as innocent however by the time she finds out she has HIV her representation changes to being rebelling. The boy is represented as a player due to the fact that he passed on the virus to the innocent girl and didn’t even tell her. He also took advantage of her because of her vulnerability
  4. 4. 2.What type of social group are you representing? Why?The type of social groups we are targeting to represent is young adults and meanly girls. Having drama as a genre, we would like to have a little meaning or teaching at the end of the squense, as it’s all reality based. this would be for girls. They could lear a listen from this at the end
  5. 5. 3.How did you represent the character (or social groups) in a particular way?The setting was in a working class house, as the main character is also working class, this is shown also by the way she dress’s and her working hard for a long time. The way she is stressing out show that she is working class. We represented her as dull, so we made her wear dark cloths while at home, but we she a different side of her, in the flash backs as she looks more confident and cocky. The guy is also working class but isnt humble as the girl but aggressive and more dominant
  6. 6. 4. Positive or negative representation? Why?The main girl is represented as quite and sort of a geek, as she loves to revise and stays at home but we see her friend (who loves partying) persuades her to come to a party were she gets HIV, this shows that she is easily influenced into bad things.
  7. 7. 5. Is it a stereotypical convention? Why?I don’t believe our opening squence has stereotypical convention as you would expect the girl to said no and carry on with her work, but it developed the conventions by her saying yes and also going home with the guy as she looked short of stubborn at the beginning.
  8. 8. 6. How does the representation relate to the target audience?This representations related to yhe target audience was the class and status as both actors and target audience are both working class as we show a regular girl just doing her work on a normal Saturday morning, this gives the audience a short of comfortable feeling as the all do the same to, the age we are targeting for is young adults, and the actor is one so they could relate to that as well.
  9. 9. 7. Is it a fair or accurate representation? Why?Yes, I do consider that it is an accurate representation as the class and age we targeted it wit is the same with the people in the film, so they could relate to it, as it is a drama, it is more realistic, so they could narrate to that in a way.
  10. 10. 8.Why did you represent this social group? (what is the purpose?)We represented this social group because it goes with our targeted age and also could relate to the actors in the sequence, as they are young adults in it to (same as we targeted).
  11. 11.  Age : 15-20 Gender : mostly females Location : United Kingdom Social class : Middle class, working class Ethnicity/Nationality : British Lifestyle/ Hobbies : going out with friends, having fun, going cinema, enjoy partying, etc Morals/ beliefs: It is acceptable to have a one off and not think that the worse can happen.
  12. 12. WHY WE ARE TARGETING THIS SPECIFICAUDIENCE ? Relates to our idea• Average age group that start their sexual life• This particular age group are still finding out about life.• Suitable moral message for them to be careful with what they do.• Age that start to go to night clubs therefore should be aware• Second largest number of HIV diagnoses was from the ages 20-25 therefore teenagers should start being aware of this virus.
  13. 13. WHY WE ARE TARGETING THIS SPECIFIC AUDIENCE ? Relates to Genre through conventions• Sends out a moral message• Theme/concept very popular in contemporary UK• Realistic situation• Use of conflict which is her being HIV positive• Using emphasise of emotion• Has a calm start and builds up tension for climax which is when girl finds out she has HIV.
  14. 14. BBFC RATINGOur film is PG
  15. 15. BBFC RATINGThis rating link to our target audience because:• Target audience will be legal to watch it• Easy to watch in cinema as no ID will be needed• There will probably be a range of ages wanting to watchit• Can send out the message that a one off can have animpact in your future.
  16. 16. INSPIRATIONAL FILMS • This film was •This film is inspirational inspirational because because it basically relates to this good family girl was out opening sequence about influenced into a life HIV. which was not her and at •The kids are irresponsible the end is actually about drinking, drugs and shocked by the outcome. partying and one of the girls •This relates to our end up having HIV. opening sequence as •This inspired our opening the same thing sequence as our actor was happened to the actor. irresponsible in the way she was drinking and partying.
  17. 17. •This movie is inspiring as itshows 4 different girls fromdifferent backgrounds•It inspired out openingsequence as there was a goodposh girl who was veryclever, was destructed by thelikeness of a guy and endedup sleeping together.•The party scene where thegirl was drinking and the guywas touching her, also inspiredus for our opening sequence.
  18. 18. THIRTEEN - FORMS The lighting in Thirteen uses the form that when drugs are being used, everything is disoriented. Also that when you take drugs you become very mellow and calm. The blue lighting portrays the fact that she is feeling calm.
  19. 19. KIDS - FORMS •The slow motion at the beginning challenges the form that teenagers that are in big gangs are innocent. •However the pace changed and it becomes faster and the music becomes very fast too. This then uses the convention that teenagers who are in big gangs are intimidating and trouble-makers.
  20. 20. 4.3.2.1 - FORMS The editing here where all four girls are shown together going their separate ways challenges the formthat all girls who have different lifestyles are seen as equal and hang around each other. By showing them separately is also develops the convention that everyone has a personal life outside their public life.
  21. 21. THIRTEEN - CONVENTIONS • In 4.3.2.1 they use the convention of character development because you see what they are going through and also at the end when everything is going to be ok and they have all become friends again. • They challenge the convention because they include a posh white rich girl who you do not expect to have any problems in her life.
  22. 22. THIRTEEN - CONVENTIONS This uses the convention of real-life situations. In Thirteen teenage girls can relate to it as they all go through a phase where they want to fit in with everyone and where they would go to extreme lengths to fit in. However this also develops the convention that all girls do this because not every girl has to do drugs or pierce their tongues to fit in.
  23. 23. KIDS – CONVENTIONS Kids uses the convention of real life and also challenges it too. As in the film a 17-year old forces a 12-year old to have sex with him. This develops the real life situation as not everyday you see this happen. Also it uses the real life convention as in reality a lot of people get HIV and STDs for being irresponsible and also being raped.
  24. 24. OPENING SEQUENCE- FORMS In our opening sequence, when the actor finds out that she has blood test results waiting for her, the pace suddenly goes much faster and there are a lot more cuts to emphasis this. This uses the form that when something bad happens the cuts go much faster and everything goes faster as this puts the audience at the edge of their seat and shows them that there is something wrong-Makes them feel uncomfortable. Such as in KIDS where everything was good in the beginning and then suddenly girls were getting raped and there was drugs involved.
  25. 25. OPENING SEQUENCE- CONVENTIONSOur opening sequence develops theconventions that good girls that reviseand good girls who are very responsible,get into a big irresponsible mess.The girl in out opening sequence isportrayed as innocent and responsibleas she is revising and getting on with herwork. However the audience then areshocked with the fact she has HIV.This is similar to thirteen where theblonde girl is seen as responsible and afamily girl, but then she is influenced bythis one girl who changes her lifecompletely.
  26. 26. NARRATIVE STRUCTURE Our narrative structure is linear as at the beginning the girl is introduced Then in the middle it is clear to the audience that she has HIV Then at the end, she has to come to some sort of resolution. We used TODOROVS theory of disequilibrium, equilibrium and new equilibrium. The flash backs that we used were similar to the ones used in 4.3.2.1 as they go back to see how they got to hat place they are now. Such as in our opening sequence when she found out she had HIV we kept going back to different flashbacks that lead up to the point she got HIV.
