Genre Analysis
DRAMA-SOCIAL DRAMA
GENRE: DRAMA
 The purpose of a dramatic storyline is to
move the audience emotionally. Drama
films depend mostly on the development
of realistic characters dealing with
emotional issues.
 In most cases the film concentrates on
normal character(s) that is dealing with a
conflict or dilemma. Dramas often give
actors a chance to stretch into a role that
other genres wouldn’t allow them to do.
This is because drama films focus on
building up characters that the audience
can engage with.
STRUCTURE OF DRAMA FILMS.
 A drama film is structured in a
very specific way in order to keep
the audiences attention, and make
them become emotionally attached
to the action what is going on in
the film. To do this they structure
the films to have climaxes and
anti-climaxes so that there are
peaks and troths in the tension.
This keeps the audience interested
and stops their mind wandering
from the film.
MORE ABOUT THE GENRE.
 The central theme of a drama genre is that it is character driven. A
drama film doesn’t have some elements e.g. amazing (possibly
CGI- created) location (adventure), awesome stunts or explosions
(action) and there is no excitement or fear from a dark, spooky
castle (thriller).
 But without these elements, a drama film has to take the audience
on an emotional rollercoaster ride. This is done through that the
story line revolves around emotions of the influential characters.
 A drama film offers intense character development and tells an
honest story of human struggle. The heart of a drama film is
conflict. There is a climax in drama films usually and they are
extremely plot driven.
 A drama film is essentially a drama film because of the way it
makes the audience relate and sympathize with the characters.
This is done through a mixture of a cleverly written script, a
SUB GENRE OF DRAMA.
 Romantic Drama: Romantic Drama film is a genre that explores the
complex side of love. The plot usually centers on an obstacle that is preventing
love between two people. It ends with the lovers separating because of the
enormity of the obstacle, the realization of incompatibility, or simply fate.
 historical: Historical is a sub-genre of Drama film that examines a specific
time in history or group of people.
 period drama: Period Piece is a sub-genre of Drama film that
focuses on a specific time era. The era in which the film is set adds
not only to the plot, but to the characters and costumes as well.
 courtroom drama: uses the justice system as a main component of
the plot. The story usually unfolds inside a courtroom with the
prosecutor, judge, jury, and the defense. Tension plays a large part
in courtroom dramas as the verdict can often mean life or death.
 and crime: comprises of character development based on themes involving
criminals, law enforcement and the legal system.
Sub genre: Social drama
 Dramatic themes such as alcoholism,
drug addiction, infidelity, moral
dilemmas, racial prejudice, religious
intolerance, sexuality, poverty, class
divisions, violence against women and
corruption are presented in drama
films.
 Drama films often, but not always,
have tragic ending or painful
resolutions. This can be applied to my
film as the mother dies in the end.

This can be applied to my film as the mother dies in the end.
  • 7. Mis en Scene for Social Drama Genre  Lighting – Low key lighting is usually used in drama films. But High key lighting can also be used to show happiness.  Camera Angles/Shots – As far as the shots are concerned, close- ups of characters are used to show expressions and Low Angle and High angle shots are used to portray strength and weakness amongst characters .Props such as Knifes, Guns, Alcohol, Mobile phones, Drugs are usually used in drama films.
  • 8.  Setting – Outdoors, Run down buildings/houses, Council flats, Houses etc.  Costume – The characters will be seen wearing costumes which the audience can relate to in a drama film. E.g. Business man in a suit, doctor in a white lab coat, teenagers wearing hoodie and hat etc.  Editing – Different editing techniques can be used in a drama film depending on its narrative. Mostly, shot reverse shots and parallel editing are most common.  Sound – Intense music is usually used in dram films. Sometimes very slow and emotional sound is used to engage the audience.
  • 9. Typical props  Alcohol  Drugs  Guns  Knifes  Mobile Phones  These props I have mentioned are typical to the type of gritty drama/Teen Drama we are aiming for as in many films such as Elephant and Kidult hood, these props can be seen clearly in the film. We will take these props in consideration and will use some of these props in our project.
  • 10. Examples of social drama movies.
