  • 14. Task:

  • 15. GENRE CODES/ CONVENTIONS What we might expect to find; the ingredients or common elements of a genre…
  • 16. ROMANTIC COMEDY Often uses contemporary ‘pop’ soundtrack, mixed with ‘classics’ to enhance ‘mood’ Starts with a seemingly ‘mis-matched’ couple meeting in unusual circumstances We follow the problems in their relationship, but they eventually realise they are in love… May use emotional ‘montages’ to show passages of time, etc… ‘ Best friends’ or ‘sidekicks’ offer support, advice and often ‘comic relief’ And so on…
  • 17. Research:
    • You need to find out about ‘audience’
    • These are the people watching the film (for example)

  • 21. Genre conventions are often complex and subtle – it is not enough just to list a few key words/phrases
  • 22. Feedback: Your chosen genre conventions…
  • 23. Sub-genres:
    • Most genres can be ‘broken down’ into different types
    • They are called ‘sub-genres’
