Question 1 evaluation

  1. 1. In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?
  2. 2. Use of close up. – develops conventions of real media products. This image shows a close up on the protagonists face. This makes the viewer concentrate on a particular thing /person and can usually help with identifying the characters emotions. The shot that I used is also used in the film side effects which is a psychological thriller.
  3. 3. Use of close up. It could be said that this shot in fact challenges the conventions of media products as it doesn’t allow for emotions to be identified. .
  4. 4. Use of scary setting. – develops forms and conventions. I filmed in the graveyard to give the trailer an edge. Filming in the graveyard automatically sets the mood for the entire trailer/film and informs the viewer of the genre. A haunted house is the main setting in the woman in black.
  5. 5. Use of low key lighting. – develops forms and conventions. In almost all of the scenes in my trailer I used low key lighting. In this particular scene which is shown in the picture, I created the low key lighting by reducing the amount of lighting in the corridor whilst keeping light shining from behind the character. The same lighting choice was made in the woman in black. There is also lighting coming from behind the character.
  6. 6. Colour usage. – develops forms and conventions. In these three separate images. I have included the colour red in my use of text colour and costume choices. The colour red can represent death, fear etc and these are often the root of the themes in thrillers.
  7. 7. Colour usage. – develops forms and conventions. In side effects the pill is slightly red, this could highlight fear, danger etc. In the woman in black, the walls and chairs are a dark red which could be highlighting the theme of death and fear within the film.
