Evaluation Question 1 – In What Ways Does Your MediaProduct Use, Develop Or Challenge Forms And Conventions?
Movie Trailer• My trailer is about a teenage girl who is confused and is going through troubles in deciding what path she should follow. She is a Muslim girl and knows what is wrong and knows what is right but doesn’t have the courage to do what she knows.
Question 1 In my trailer I used non-diagetic sound, I used recitation from the Quran, which is not usually used in trailers. I chose to use this to make my trailer different from others and to make the trailer more related with what my movie is about.• My trailer was based on a lot of research from other related movie trailer with similar genres. I used inter-titles to show the audience a bit more about the movie and to grow their interest. The movie trailers that I watched used inter- titles therefore it interested me to use them them too.
Question 1In my film trailer I have challenged a mixture of ethnic backgrounds because I have mixed different people in my movie trailer from different countries. I have characters who are from Africa and from Iran. The main actress of the movie is from Iran.• I personally felt that my trailer was challenged a lot because the trailer wasn’t same to other trailers that I have seen. I also think that the conventions are similar to other movies with the same genre.
Question 1• The movie title and the release date I put at the end of the trailer. I felt to do this because it will stay in the audiences mind because it’s the last thing that they will see. Most of the other trailers that I had studied did the same thing, therefore this a convention of a teen drama. The location for the film was taken in a park and in her bedroom. The park reflects on the idea that she is socialising and hanging with her mates. In her room the mood changes, the lighting is dull. I challenged the conventions by making the main protagonist read from the Quran.
