  1. 1. By  Sam  McDowall  
  2. 2.   The  opening  2  minutes  to  a  teen  comedy    Introducing  character    Enigma  through  these  characters,  how  do  they  know   each  other,  what  are  they  doing    Typically  following  the  conventions  of  comedy  
  3. 3.   Introducing  character  and/or  narrative  context      Use  of  enigma  –  this  is  the  mystery  which  makes  the   audience  want  to  find  out  more    Titles    Cross  cutting      Here  are  some  examples  are  of  how  my  titles  have   followed  the  typical  conventions:    
  4. 4.   Set  in  or  around  high  schools    Relationships    Social  groups    Typical  stereotypes:  The  Geek/Nerd,  The  Rebel  
  5. 5.   I  feel  that  my  media  product  does  not  challenge  any   typical  conventions  for  its  genre.    It    uses  common  forms  of  conventions  of  real  media   products.    It  uses  a  cross  cutting  technique  which  is  conventional   for  my  genre    Cross  cutting  also  creates  enigma,  by  how  these  two   opposite  characters  are  related,  where  they  are  going   and  who  they  are    
  6. 6.   My  media  product  stereotypes  the  main  two  characters    One  being  a  typical  geek,  the  other  traditionally  a   rebel.  This  matches  typical  conventions  of  a  teen   comedy.    Usually  the  youths  of  today  are  portrayed  in  a  negative   way,  such  as  hoodies  and  anti-­‐social  behaviour    Below  are  two  examples  of  my  characters  
  7. 7. ‘Geek’  from  The   My  character,  Breakfast  Club   Reggie.  
  8. 8. Teens  and  fans  of  teen  comedies.  
  9. 9.   The  primary  audience  for  my  product  would  be   primarily  teenagers,  the  16-­‐24  age  group  who  are  the   biggest  cinema  audience    They  would  be  able  to  relate  to  the  young  characters  in   the  film  and  also  it  gives  of  a  friendly  atmosphere  and   vibe      Fans  of  comedy  films,  such  as  ‘ The  Breakfast  Club’  and   ‘Step  Brothers’    Also  fans  of  TV  programmes  such  as  the   ‘Inbetweeners’  and  ‘Skins’  
  10. 10.   I  have  attracted  an  audience  by  trying  to  create  a   product  that  would  personally  appeal  to  me,  as  I  am  in   the  main  target  market.    Music  which  is  fun  and  upbeat    The  style  of  fonts    Opposites  of  characters      The  way  in  which  it  is  edited  
  11. 11.   During  this  process  I  have  learnt  about  a  lot  of   different  technologies    These  include:    Celtx      LiveType      Final  Cut  Pro    
  12. 12.   This   programme   was  used  to   create  my   script  and   call  sheets,   also  script   breakdown  
  13. 13.   In  this   programme   I  put  all  of   my  clips   together  to   form  my   final  film  
  14. 14.   A   programme   used  for   creating   titles  and   effects  to   make  the   titles  look   more   smooth  
  15. 15.   I  feel  that  I  have  learnt  a  number  of  things  from  the   original  preliminary  task  to  the  final  product.    Your  preliminary  task  here    Main  task    Such  as  :    Camera  work      Editing      Research  skills      Titles      Adding  music  –  finding  the  right  music  (fade  in/fade  outs)  
  16. 16.   I  have  used  a  varied  selection  of  angles,  such  as  a  high   angle  and  low  angles    In  my  preliminary  task  I  had  1  shot  size  and  an   unsteady  camera    Also  a  good  mix  of  shot  sizes,  here  are  a  few  examples:    Close  Ups      High  Angles    Point  Of  View  Shot    Extreme  Close  Up  
  17. 17.   When  editing  my  final  film,  I  added  cross  cutting  and   jump  cuts    Compared  to  my  preliminary  task  I  have  learnt  how  to   make    the  following:      Subclip      Insert  music      Insert  titles  over  my  footage    
  18. 18.   When  researching  all  different  genre’s  I  decided  on   comedy  because  it  was  the  most  appealing  to  me    After  looking  at  a  number  of  different  opening   sequences  I  quickly  saw  a  pattern  in  the  conventions    This  made  me  want  to  make  my  own  comedy    During  this  process  I  also  felt  more  confident  using  the   camera,  tripod  and  editing  the  film    
  19. 19.   My  titles  are  made  to  give  off  a  fun  and  not  to  serious   film    I  experimented  using  LiveType    I  then  completed  them  on  Final  Cut  Pro  so  that  I  could   insert  them  directly  into  the  timeline      Below  is  an  example  of  a  film  I  have  compared  my   titles  too  
  20. 20.   When  adding   music  to  my   film  I  had  to   make  sure   that  I  was     breaking  any   contract  rules,   so  I  used  the   Free  Music   Archive    
  21. 21.   Ideally  Universal  would  distribute  my  product.      I  feel  that  it  fits  into  their  genre’s      Also  their  general  conventions.  
  22. 22.   In  reality  my  film  is  more  of  an  independent    This  is  because  of  my  low  budget    Also  because  of  my  unknown  actors    Therefore  it  is  more  likely  for  my  film  to  be  distributed   by  Revolver
