The trailer would be filmed mainly on the streets of London
specifically targeting the ruff areas of London to portray the
characters lifestyle and also a business setting in Liverpool
street to portray the flip side of the characters journey to
success. There will also be scenes shot in a house showing
where the character lives.
Todorov – This film seeks to challenge the conventions of Todorov’s
theory as the film will follow a different structure of disequilibrium,
where the character will begin in a state of unbalance and desperation and
then move to an equilibrium where he finds a balance in his life and
finally a resolution in which he fulfils his goal of success.
Barthes – The film will greatly use the conventions of Barthes theory in
which it will include elements of narratives codes for example the enigma
code allowing the audience to question why the character is so eager to
be successful?, what happened to the characters real parents?, why did
he run away from his foster parents?
We would like for our audience to be active as we want them
to see our trailer and really empathise with the character.
Also we want them to be inspired to think about their own
dreams of success and how they can incorporate these seven
steps to their lives.
