Narrative Framework 1: Levi-Strauss BinaryOpposition. Levi-Strauss came up with a theory of clear opposites such as good vs Evil . Apply this theory to our Documentary
representing the Police as the goodandan opposite of people getting arrested as the Evil.
How we will represent the Police ?We will be doing this through interviews and real life footage of how the police deal with criminals who cannot behave themselves at night.The police also use head cams so you can see first hand experience of how the police deal with incidents.We will also take footage of police preventing some things from expanding into problems .
How we will represent the people getting arrested. We will film them being arrested and being taken to a police stationShow how those people bring negative connotations towards Leicester making it seem “ Unsafe to be in “.
Narrative Framework 2:• Todorov(Equilibrium, Dis equilibrium & New Equilibrium)
EquilibriumWe have already decided that the basic storyline of this documentary will be facts of Leicester, the good side of Leicester which is going to be the Equilibrium. This is where everything is normal and people are having fun in nightclubs and around the City Centre.
Disequilibrum• Then comes the Disequilibrum where the police find some disturbance and people are having fights. This is where something has happenend which the police have to get involved with.
New Equilibrium• Then finally comes the New Equilibrium where the problem is solved and the criminal is taken off the streets and banged up for the night. This is going to be the main storyline of our documentary with interviews and voxpoxs in the middle.
Stereotypes Narrative Theory 3• Perkins (Stereotypes) Refer to work on positive stereotypes by ..Perkins.
Sterotype• A sterotype which exists within the communities of Leicester by some people is the police are people who try and make the streets safer and have a positive representation of the police and that is what we are trying to convey however some people have a negative representation of the police and this is what we would like to change and show that the police only work for the community and in the best intrest of the people who party in Leicester.
• However, as T. E. Perkins notes in her key article ‘Rethinking Stereotypes’, the often observed ‘simplicity’ of stereotypes is deceptive:to refer ‘correctly’ to someone as a ‘dumb blonde’, and to understand what is meant by that, implies a great deal more than hair colour and intelligence. It refers immediately to ber sex, which refers to her status in society, her relationship to men, her inability to behave or think rationally, and so on. In short, it implies knowledge of a complex social structure.
