Evaluation question #1

  1. 1. Evaluation Question#1 In what way does your media product use,develop or challenge forms and conventions of existing media products?
  2. 2. • The genre of my film is Action drama.Warner Brothers being a large media conglomerate produce high budget action drama films as compared to other institutions. WhereasWarner Brothers is my media institution since it has produced a number of top grossing action films. Some examples of the Action drama films ofWarner Bros are: THE 3rd MAN,The Dark knight, The Bodyguard, Inception, Gravity. The Dark knight is one of the highest grossing film ofWarner Bros by $533 Million. Action drama – Combines action set-pieces with serious themes, character insight and/or emotional power.This sub- genre can be traced back to the origins of the action film.
  3. 3. • The action genre is a class of creative works characterized by more emphasis on exciting action sequences than on character development or story-telling.The genre encompasses action fiction, action films, action games and analogous media in other formats such as manga and anime.There are many sub-genres, Including martial arts action, extreme sports action, car chases and vehicles, Suspense action, and action comedy, with each focusing in more detail on its own type and flavor of action. It is usually possible to tell from the creative style of an action sequence, the genre of the entire creative works. For example, the style of a Combat sequence will indicate whether the entire works is an action adventure, or Martial arts. Action is mainly defined by a lot of focus on any kind of movement. Action films involve one or more heroes thrust into a series of challenges requiring physical feats, extended fights, extensive stunts and frenetic chases. Story and character development are generally secondary to explosions, fist fights, gunplay and car chases. Both historically and currently, action films have wide commercial appeal and enjoy box office success.The action film revolves around a narrative, to be sure, but more importantly than that, a hero; when a moviegoer thinks of an action picture, more often than not they are thinking of a specific actor
  4. 4. • My film ‘The Final Fight’ follows a set of codes and conventions which an ‘Action Drama’ should follow. I made use of all the elements of the mis-en-scene. For example: Props, Costume, Lighting, Sound and Editing techniques to help my audience recognize the genre of my film.The mis-en-scene used in the film portrays a poor teenage boy, medals hanged on the wall shows that he was a fighter before, the injury on his leg due to which now he could not even walk properly. For walking he use a walker shown in the film. Advertisement poster which Harold was holding in his hand is of the world championship where he wants to fight for the prize money which will make him rich.
  5. 5. • In an action film the kind of clothes worn by the fighters are very casual, mostly male fighters wear pajamas only . In my film characters are wearing pajamas and hoods . On their hoods they have tied their karate belts.There is an injury on Harold’s foot so a plaster can be seen on his leg.
  6. 6. • The editing techniques I have used in my film shows my main character dreaming of the fighting championship while he is asleep. I put black &white effect and noise so that it portray a dream. Other than that Dip to black is used for the scene change . The background music used during the fight scene is thrilling which would develop the interest of audience. And the sad part of the film where Harold realize that he cannot fight now have a slow background music, such music is used to create or make audience feel what the character would be feeling at that moment. I have dubbed a voiceover of Harold for self motivation.
  7. 7. • The title of my film has been made according to the genre of my movie which also portrays that its an action movie. I used different ways to create title of my film and ended up with iMovies.The animation of my title and the sound makes it more attractive for the youth/young audience .
  8. 8. Challenges
  9. 9. • Usually in an Action Drama if there is a fight scene so its must to have some crowd whose watching or cheering. But in my film I showed the fight as a dream so I didn’t show the crowd cheering to watching the fight . My film challenges this convention by not having a girl in it.The plot solely revolves around two boys Harold & John instead of having a girl in the film who could be his sister or lover. Which an action drama usually have.
