  • 5. BIG CONCEPT! ‘ Representation’. OR: ‘ RE-PRESENTATION’
  • 6. HOW THE MEDIA PORTRAYS THE WORLD
  • 7. REPRESENTATION:
    • The media text (film) takes a person, place or thing and re-presents them in a certain way
    • The film changes or adjusts things; people, places and things can be re-presented in many ways
    • Let’s look at an example…
  • 8.  
  • 9. The female
    • Strong
    • The final girl
    • Tom boyish
    • Brave

    • The source of all evil
    • Stronger than humans
  • 11. The place of refuge
    • Often a church
    • No evil may enter
    • Place of magic
    • Protected by God
    • The daylight is seen as safe
  • 12. The houses
    • Usually a big building (like a mansion or a hotel)
    • At night it is not safe (this is when most of the killings take place).
    • Cold and dark in places
    • Where by objects come to life (Statues and paintings)
    • Supernatural
  • 13. ICT Task:
    • To research and present findings about representation of people and places in your chosen genre
    • To create a Publisher document to show the above (1 per group member)
    • Must contain an image and bullet points about how the person or place is represented in the film
    • Add as much detail as you can, ready to print and feedback
    • Those who did not deliver their ‘genre’ presentation will go with Mr Griffiths to 315 to present this…
  • 14. Practical Task:
    • In groups
    • Use the digital camera
    • Take 3 or 4 shots to represent a typical character or location in your chosen genre
    • Think about shot type, framing, lighting, props and costume
    • Example…
  • 15.  
  • 16.  
  • 17. Now:
    • Look at the photographs you took last week
    • You need to mount them on the A4 template
    • Fill in the text as indicated, to explain how you have represented the person or place
  • 18. Prompts:
    • Clothing?
    • Facial expression?
    • Body language?
    • Lighting?
    • Camera placement?
    • Position in frame?
    • Messages you wanted to convey to your ‘audience’?
    • Why is this person/place often represented in this way in your chosen genre?
    • What props have you used and why?
    • Anything else to annotate?
  • 19. Representation in action:
    • We need to ensure you can talk with confidence about representation in film texts
    • You will watch two clips or trailers and take notes
    • These will be about how people, places and events are being represented
    • You will then have 10 minutes to write up some of these notes ready to feedback…
  • 20.  
  • 21. The ‘Pitch’: All movies start with ‘an idea’.
  • 22.  
  • 23. NONE OF THESE FILMS ARE ORIGINAL CONCEPTS!
  • 24. In fact: Around 50% of major movies are based on books, comics, TV shows or are sequels/ prequels/ remakes!
  • 25. Low risk investment:
    • Existing story
    • Sequel potential
    • Known brand
    • Marketing spin-offs
    • A-list star(s)
    • ‘ Name’ director
    • ‘ High Concept’
  • 26. Existing story Sequels Built-in fan base Book sales in millions Huge marketing potential = Low Risk
  • 27. Film virtually in profit even before release due to marketing spin offs.
  • 28. HOWEVER: For this task, we want originality!
  • 29. Task: Write and then deliver a 60 second pitch for a movie in your chosen genre.
  • 30.  
  • 31. The Movie Pitch:
    • Will try and portray the film in a short, snappy series of statements/sentences
    • Will often reference genre, star names, and previous ‘hit’ movies
    • Is a ‘persuasive’ text; will need to convey a sense of ‘excitement’ about the movie idea
    • You will be ‘scripting’ this today and delivering it next week
    • You will then be filming a 2 minute section!
