  3. 3. What does ‘fantasy’ mean? <ul><li>The term fantasy is used to describe the specific genre that uses magic and other supernatural phenomena's as a primary element of the plot, theme or setting for a film. </li></ul><ul><li>Films usually involving magic, supernatural events, make-believe creatures, or exotic fantasy worlds. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Typical Conventions of Fantasy based films: <ul><li>Mystical creatures or monsters, e.g vampires, fairies, and dragons. </li></ul><ul><li>The trailers are all very ‘dream like’ in the sense that the plots do not appear realistic. </li></ul><ul><li>In all three trailers the main characters are in the fantasy world, without the ordinary characters, from the real world around them knowing. – e.g in modern day world without others knowing the supernatural exist. </li></ul><ul><li>The trailers are very secretive, as they don’t give away too much of the story line. </li></ul><ul><li>Very dark and mysterious; this emphasises the unknowing and isolation. </li></ul><ul><li>Quick and short snippets of action are shown, to prevent too much of the plot to be given away. </li></ul><ul><li>A lot of dissolves, fade in and out black, and cuts are used to help create pace as the action is being shown. </li></ul>
  5. 5. What gives away the fantasy representation? <ul><li>Elements that are supernatural or not human. </li></ul><ul><li>The dramatic and uneasy music. </li></ul><ul><li>Fantasy can be very similarly overlapped with horror or sci-fi films in regards to the mystery and sense of unknowing, however fantasy is a lot more mystical and less frightening. </li></ul><ul><li>Horror doesn’t allow the audience to know what is happening, whereas fantasy allows the viewer to follow the plot without suspense. </li></ul>
