    • L.I.A.R.
    • BIG CONCEPT! ‘ Representation’. OR: ‘ RE-PRESENTATION’
    • HOW THE MEDIA PORTRAYS THE WORLD
    • 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…
    •  
    • The female
      • Strong
      • The final girl
      • Tom boyish
      • Brave
      • Connection with the killer
      • Gains more strength as the movie progresses
    • The killer
      • Unstoppable until the end
      • Cursed
      • Disfigured
      • No emotions
      • The source of all evil
      • Stronger than humans
    • The place of refuge
      • Often a church
      • No evil may enter
      • Place of magic
      • Protected by God
      • The daylight is seen as safe
    • 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
    • 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…
    • 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…
    •  
    •  
    • 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
    • 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?
    • 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…
    •  
    • The ‘Pitch’: All movies start with ‘an idea’.
    •  
    • NONE OF THESE FILMS ARE ORIGINAL CONCEPTS!
    • In fact: Around 50% of major movies are based on books, comics, TV shows or are sequels/ prequels/ remakes!
    • Low risk investment:
      • Existing story
      • Sequel potential
      • Known brand
      • Marketing spin-offs
      • A-list star(s)
      • ‘ Name’ director
      • ‘ High Concept’
    • Existing story Sequels Built-in fan base Book sales in millions Huge marketing potential = Low Risk
    • Film virtually in profit even before release due to marketing spin offs.
    • HOWEVER: For this task, we want originality!
    • Task: Write and then deliver a 60 second pitch for a movie in your chosen genre.
    •  
    • 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!
