    • The  costume  which  Stallone  is  wearing  shows  that  he  is  ready  for  combat  and  knows  what  is  about  to  happen.  I  believe  he  is  a  seeker  hero  because  the  suit  he  is  wearing  shows  me  that  he  understands  what  he  has  to  do  and  there  is  surprise  in  what  may  happen  to  him.   There  is  a  gun  in  his  hand  I  can   infer  from  this  that  there  is   about  to  be  combat  an  violence   or  that  there  has  been  combat   and  violence  
    • The  loca<on  as  you  can  see  is   The  camera  shot  is  close  up  at  a  house.  The  <me  periods  is   and  long  shot  because  the  about  night  <me.  you  can  tell   women  at  the  front  her  head  by  this  is  the  only  source  of   is  close  up  and  the  person  light  that  is  coming  is  the   hiding  in  the  darkness  is  the  street  lamp.   long  shot.     The  ligh<ng  shows  that  it  is  quite  dark   which  creates  a  suspense  and  jeopardy.   Which  shows  that  the  are  in  some  sort  of   trouble.  Which  gives  the  audience   suspense.  The  is  also  a  tense  mood   because  the  person  she  is  talking  to  is  in   the  dark.  This  shows  it  is  tense.  The   temporal  awareness  is  at  night.  
    • A  man  stands  at  the  forefront  of   the  shot    looking  down  at  the   The  shot  is  backlit  and   body  directly  while  civilians  in  the   background  stare  in  shock  at  what   natural  light  is  used.     has  happened.  This  suggests  he  is   the  main  character  and  has  sort  of   power/leadership  over  others.  There  is  a  dead  body  on  the  floor  with  a  firearm  next  to  it  which  shows  there  are  elements  of  violence  and  conflict  within  the  scene.       The  use    of  the  costumes  show  that  this   is  western  film  which  suggests  that  this   film  contains  some  violence  as  most   people  associate  the  wild  west  with   violence  and  ac<on.  
    • Spectacle  is  connoted  through  this  scene  as  it  clearly  shows  Computer  Generated  Images  to  add  to   This  ‘hero’  looks  likely  to  be  a  seeker  hero  as  she  appears  to  be  searching  for  the  atmosphere  of  the  film.  The  unique  loca<on  shown  in  this  image,  will  en<ce  the  viewer  as  it  adds   something.  She  may  be  searching  for  something    that  someone  took  from  her,  to  suspense  and  wonder  of  what  the  film  will  be  about.  The  character  in  this  scene  looks  likely  to  be   which  once  again  foreshadows  poten<al  combat  and  violence  throughout  the  one  of  the  main  protagonists  yet,  looks  lost  and  looks  into  the  distance  as  a  sense  of  wonder.  This   film.  Jeopardy  arises  as  the  main  character  is  given  a  weakness  as  she  wants  shows  that  conflict  will  arise  throughout  the  film  which  will  heavily  effect  the  main  character.     something  that  looks  extremely  difficult  to  obtain.      This  film  rejects  the  stereotypical  gender  role  of  having  a  male  character  as  the  sole  main   This  shot  is  a  long  shot  in  order  to  highlight  the  ‘magical’  seMng  around  protagonist.  As  a  female  is  a  seeker  hero  which  is  extremely  unique  throughout  the  film  industry,  this   the  main  character.  This  is  also  done  to  show  her  body  language  as  she  yet  again  will  draw  viewers  in  as  it  creates  a  sense  of  mystery.  It  makes  the  viewer  wonder  what  she   appears  to  be  in  need  and  searching  for  something  as  she  gazes  into  the  could  possibly  be  searching  for,  and  how  a  female  will  be  portrayed  throughout  the  film  of  being  a   distance.  The  <me  period  of  this  scene  also  creates  suspense  as  the  night  hero  rather  than  an  object  of  desire.     is  usually  linked  with  conflict  and  is  usually  more  nega<ve  than  during  the   day.    
    • Mo<on  Blur  shows  us  that  the   The  lead  character  has  a  gun  whereas  the  person  scene  is  fast-­‐paced  and  that  the   trailing  behind  doesn’t  appear  to  have  one,  also  main  characters  are  in  a  rush,   the  lead  character  is  a  lot  calmer  than  the  one  crea<ng  suspense  and   behind  indica<ng  his  authority  and  experience  in  jeopardy.     this  situa<on.   Predominantly   Male  genre  The  ligh<ng  in  this  shot   This  is  a  long  shot/tracking  shot  ,   The  ligh<ng  in  this  scene  also  gives  a  sense  of   the  camera  tracks  the  characters   shows  that  it  is  late  in  the  day  hope  as  it  is  the  bright   through  the  building  building   and  we  can  therefore  infer  light  in  an  otherwise   suspense  as  we  do  not  know   that  the  ac<on  and/or  film  is  dark  situa<on.   what  there  is  in  front  of  the   nearing  its  conclusion.   characters.  
    • This is a medium shot type, it is an The  background  shows  gun  shots  which   medium shot to show what Bruce Willis suggest  that  combat  and  violence  is  being   is wearing and to show that his closed taken  place  here,  also  the  image  shows  that   are scuffed as you can see on his Bruce  Willis  and  his  friends  are  being   elbows. targeted  which  relates  to  props  theory  as   Bruce  Willis  and  his  friend  are  vic<m  hero  The  loca<on  is  at  an  abandoned  area  with  construc<on  bin    
    • This  long  shot  gives  you  a  combina<on  of  many  ac<on  adventure  elements.  It  has  a  European  city  seMng  connoted  by  the  architecture  and  French  car  in  the  foreground.  To  contributes  to  a  sense  of  spectacle  par<cularly  for  an  American  audience.  The  ligh<ng  is  quite  low  key  sugges<on  that  the  ac<on  might  be  taking  place  at  dawn  or  just  before  adding  to  a  sense  of  danger  and  suspense.  Speed  and  mo<on  and  a  sense  of  danger  is  aptly  evoked  by  the  exploding  lorry  flying  into  the  air.  This  screen  shot  might  also  represent  a  point  at  which  there  is  a  disrup<on  of  the  equilibrium  by  some  ac<on  as  in  Todorov’s  theory  of  narra<ve  
    • This  screenshot  is  from  the  film  ‘Django  Unchained’,  and  depicts  Django’s  wife  in  distress,  being  harassed  by  her  slave  master.  This  shot  fundamentally  depicts  a  woman  in  distress,  which  iden<fies  with  Propps  theory  of  Narra<ve  as  she  is  a  damsel/princess  who  needs  to  be  saved  by  the  hero.      
    • The   shot   is   of   an   exo<c   loca<on   featuring   a   mid-­‐shot   of   two   figures   apparently   running   from   an   immanent  danger.  There  is  clear  sense  of  jeopardy  and  peril  They  are  clothed  is  cool  blue  colours  contras<ng  with  the  exo<c  red  background  foliage.  These  elements  add  to  a  sense  of  spectacle.  
    • The  character  in  this  clip  looks  to  be  in  conflict  as  the  make  up   The  ligh<ng  of  the  background  of  this  s<ll  represents  how  he  has  been  injured.  The  blood  represents  how  he   image  is  really  dark  and  looks  to  be  has  been  in  some  sort  of  fight.  As  a  result,  I  can  infer  that  the  s<ll   gloomy.  The  darkness  can  imply  the  image  can  be  from  an  ac<on  and  adventure  film  due  to  the  make-­‐up   dullness  and  also  the  evil  of  the  scene.  The  and  the  facial  expressions  of  the  character  being  emphasized  into   mood  also  looks  to  be  nega<ve  due  to  the  conflict.  The  use  of  blood  and  sweat  along  the  characters  body  can   darkness  of  the  ligh<ng.  As  a  result,  the  emphasis  just  how  much  conflict  he  has  been  in.   darkness  of  the  background  can  show  that   the  scene  is  also  in  a  darkish  format  (being   full  of  conflict  and  evil).  
    •   The  use  of ligh<ng   sugges<ve  of  suspense   and  jeopardy  which  is  a   fey  feature  of  ac<on   adventure.  The  use  of   ligh<ng  can  symbolise  a   dark  atmosphere.  This   could  also  create  a  dull   mood.      The  use  of  the  camera  is  posi<oned  on  the  main  character  which  is  diffuse  and  a  close  up  but  however  in  the  background  there   The  use  of  loca<on  is  placed  in  is  a  shadow  which  creates   a  house  which  is  dark  and  dull,  suspense  and  jeopardy  but  this   this  could  suggest  this  it  was  a  shot  is  a  long  shot  and  all  in  all  this   later  <me  in  the  day  and  we  could  be  a  sense  of  mystery  for   can  suggest  this  by  the  only  example  how  they  are  related  and   light  we  can  see  is  the  street  a  sense  of  her  being  watched.       light  shining  into  the  house.    
    • This  shot  type  of  the  film  Fast  and  Furious  is  a  medium  shot  focusing  on  Tyrese  Gibson  blurring  out  the  background  and  foreground  of  another  actor  of  the  film,  Ludacris.  His  facial  expression  implies  that  there  is  a  disrup<on  of  equilibrium  which  they  are  in  the  process  of  recognizing  the  disrup<on  which  connotes  combat  and  violence,  that  is  a  key  feature  of  ac<on  adventure.    Furthermore,  from  the  mise-­‐en-­‐scene  of  the  props  in  the  background  it  shows  that  it  is  male  dominated  which  is  a  stereotype  of    ac<on  adventure  films  being  mainly  aimed  at  male.  The    
    • His  facial  expression  suggests  he  is  in  deep  conversa<on   His  make-­‐up  and  costume  suggests   that  he  has  already  been  in  conflict,  as   he  has  ripped  clothes  and  fresh   wounds    
    • The  loca<on  as  you  can  see  is   The  camera  shot  is  close  up  at  a  house.  The  <me  periods  is   and  long  shot  because  the  about  night  <me.  you  can  tell   women  at  the  front  her  head  by  this  is  the  only  source  of   is  close  up  and  the  person  light  that  is  coming  is  the   hiding  in  the  darkness  is  the  street  lamp.   long  shot.     The  ligh<ng  shows  that  it  is  quite  dark   which  creates  a  suspense  and  jeopardy.   Which  shows  that  the  are  in  some  sort  of   trouble.  Which  gives  the  audience   suspense.  The  is  also  a  tense  mood   because  the  person  she  is  talking  to  is  in   the  dark.  This  shows  it  is  tense.  The   temporal  awareness  is  at  night.
