    • Researching Genre
    • Genres have characteristic features that are known to and recognised by audiences This formula is reproduced again and again
    • Audiences develop an understanding that certain expectations may be fulfilled and they may find pleasure in predicting what will happen next
    • Producers of generic narratives depend on a certain amount of immediate communication with the audience They want the narrative to be easily comprehensible Genres that use key components that are easily recognisable are particularly important
    • STOCK CHARACTERS STOCK PLOTS, SITUATIONS, ISSUES AND THEMES STOCK LOCATIONS AND BACKDROPS STOCK PROPS AND SIGNIFIERS MUSIC AND SOUNDS GENERIC CONVENTIONS Key Components of Genre
    • Issues of Representation All genres have issues of representation that they are often associated with. For example; In a Rom Com we may expect archetypal characters such as: 1. Gay best friend 2. Guy who is unlucky in love 3. Hopeless romantic 4. Girl next door It is important for your coursework that you are familiar with representations that are often used in your genre. These could be; Characters Places Ideologies Or even groups of people

    • TASK Create a powerpoint titled: Researching Genre Outline the repertoire of your chosen genre (for print this is the type of music your magazine will focus on). Do this by identifying the key components of the genre. You should create a slide for each key component and representation and refer to at least 3 different texts from within your genre to back up the point that you make. Your final slide should be a detailed summary of the things which your own work must include to be of your chosen genre. BE REALISTIC– think about access to locations, costumes etc.)
