How to analyses a tv drama

  1. 1. How to analyse a TV Drama By Emma Waite
  2. 2. Section A of Exam  Section one will have you watch a 4 – 5 minute piece of TV drama. You will be asked then to complete a textual analysis of it to discuss how it constructs a representation of one of these: Gender, Age Ethnicity, Sexuality, Class and status, Physical ability/disability or Regional identity.  By using the following areas: Camera Shots, Angle, Movement and Composition, Editing, Sound and Mise-en- Scène
  3. 3. Sound Technique  Diegetic Sound: any sound that naturally occurs in the scene.  Non-diegetic Sound: sound that is not natural.  Synchronous: When the sound occurs from what's on the screen.  Asynchronous: When the sound occurs off screen
  4. 4. Shot Types Establishing Shot (Extreme long shoot): establishing the location and where you want the viewer to look. Master Shot: is the limit of the action. Over the Shoulder: how they film a conversation (shot reverse shot can be used as well). Close Up: getting to know the character and ignoring the surroundings. Extreme Close Up: to show the emotion and also an important moment in the clip. Medium close up: waist up. Long Shot: whole body and to establish the location. Pan shot: horizontal sweep. Tilt Shot: vertical sweep. Tracking: when the camera follows the action.
  5. 5. Mise-en-scène  Mise-en-scène is the arrangement of scenery and properties to represent the place where a play or movie is enacted. E.g props, scenery, clothing, objects
  6. 6. Regional Identity  Regional Identity is the identification with a specific geographic region of a nation. E.g. in the country, in the city, at sea
  7. 7. Editing  The eye line match begins with a character looking at something off-screen, followed by a cut to the object or person at which he is looking.  Matching the action (movement or motion) of characters or objects in one shot to the action in the next shot where the action continues.  
Shot reverse shot is a film technique where one character is shown looking at another character (often off-screen), and then the other character is shown looking back at the first character. Since the characters are shown facing in opposite directions, the viewer assumes that they are looking at each other.
