‘Forbidden’<br />Presentation by: Sarah Freeman, Eilish Crowther, Lauren James & Jagoda Suchenia<br />
In the beginning...<br />We had four strong story ideas.<br />Most interesting to create.<br />Easiest to produce with our restriction.<br />Lauren’s story idea.<br />
Forms and conventions of media products<br />Forms and conventions of Romantic Drama’s.<br />Male and female<br />Music<br />Mise en scene<br />Camera angles<br />
Representation and Social groups<br />Our media product represents two particular social groups.<br />We also worked hard on the representation of characters such as the big shot businessman in his nice car and our ditzy woman being late for work.<br />
Distribution<br />Logo Ideas: <br /> Researched different film studios, in the UK as well as U.S and have come up with different ideas, such as:<br />Text<br />Image<br />Image and Text<br />Graphics (sketches)<br />Due to scheduling and time problems we have decided to use Google and search some images and see what we could come up with.<br />
For Distribution we have looked at programmes, TV channels, competitions, media companies and film studios.<br />Skins (E4) competition<br />BBC Studios and Post Production<br />ITV<br />Ealing Studios (London)<br />Film festivals such as ; * Sundance (American) * Cannes Film Festival (France) *Telluride Film Festival (US) *Raindance Film Festival (UK) <br />Adidas competition for new, young directors – send your film to www.adidas.com<br />
These are some of the most known and successful film studios behind the most memorable films in history and our inspiration and people we have looked up to:<br />British Studios:<br />MGM – British Studios<br />Riverside Studios<br />Ealing Studios<br />Merton Park Studios<br />American Studios:<br />* Paramount Pictures<br />* Warner Brothers<br />* Summit Entertainment<br />* Miramax<br />* Dreamworks<br />* Columbia<br />* FOX <br />
Target Audience<br />Audience research for our genre film has helped us to establish our target audience who we should be aiming our film at. <br />After weighing out all our evidence, the conclusion we have come to is that our target audience would be mostly females and they would be in the age range of 15 – 30.<br /><ul><li>Egoists
Utopians </li></li></ul><li>Drawing the audience in…<br /> Our main focus:<br />Mise – en scene right and according to the storyboard.<br />Music<br />Style – Costume design <br />Editing – flow<br />
Technology<br />While filming our product we learnt how to work the camera. <br />How to unfold the tripod and attach the camera to the plate. <br />How to efficiently open the dolly and screw the tripod in. <br />We also learnt different shot techniques to show the story well and show the flow of the film. <br />Progress throughout filming… <br /><ul><li> Since the preliminary task, we have learnt how to become better filmmakers.
We now have the knowledge of how to complete specific film shots and camera angles.
We learnt that completing all of our preliminary planning beforehand makes the filming much more quicker and professional. </li></li></ul><li>Film Product<br />Particular genres use different elements in an opening sequence to attract their target audience.<br />For example Sleepy hollow.<br />We chose a typical Hollywood opening to attract our target audience.<br />This opening sequence introduces the two main characters.<br />The sequence does not give anything away about what will happen later on in the narrative.<br /> - McKee's theory <br />Minimal dialogue is used.<br />
Editing<br />We used windows movie maker.<br />This software allowed us to cut down clips as well as slowing them, down or making them faster. <br />Many different techniques were used to produce a smooth realistic final product.<br /> Once editing was complete we burnt our product onto a rewritable DVD so that it can be played from a computer or DVD player<br />
