developing/challenging the use of conventions in our media product

  1. 1. In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products? <br />
  2. 2. Before we started our trailer, I researched into different trailers to gain a good understanding of the conventions. Such as: <br />Friday the 13th (Marcus Nispel 2009)<br />Scream (Wes Craven 1996) <br />Let me in (Matt Reeves 2010)<br />
  3. 3. While I researched into the horror genre, the repeating conventions found within plot lines, titles and characters were: <br />Protagonists, <br />Stock Characters and<br />Making sure that the plots and stock situations are predictable and recognizable. <br />
  4. 4. In most trailers, masks are often used for antagonists to highlight the separation and isolation. <br />My bloody Valentine (George Mihalka 1981)<br />Freddy vs Jason (Ronny Yu 2003) <br />
  5. 5. Our aim…<br />Was to create a sense of realism a sense of realism through the use of iconography. <br />We challenged the conventions by having our antagonist exposed in a long gown with blood and bruises. <br />
  6. 6. Themes…<br />We became influenced by revenged theme trailers such as: <br />I spit on your grave (Steven R. Monroe 2010) <br />Nightmare on Elm Street (Samuel Bayer 2010)<br />We projected the message through voice-overs and use of dialogue in the trailer. <br />
  7. 7. Characters…<br />The protagonist are usually heroes or villains that have the same qualities across a number of genres such as : <br />Resident Evil (Paul W.S Anderson 2002) <br />The Sixth Sense (M. Night Shyamalan 1999) <br />
