Evaluation activity 1

  1. 1. AS Media Studies Evaluation 1 Lewis Tull
  2. 2. The title of the film The title of the film is called ‘Grilled’. I decided to include it in the opening and also place it at the end because I had looked at several different film openings and found out the title was present, and came at the end of most comedy film openings, such as in ‘ therefore I was able to produce a film that is similar to already- existing films.
  3. 3. The settings and locations I used a wide angle shot of the inside of the kitchen to set the scene of the film. I wanted the location to be a pub/restaurant because it would represent every day life as my target audience (young adults) would go to these places often, thus making it relatable. I also shot the inside of the kitchen because most of the films I watched used mainly indoor scenes, and it suggests a relaxing atmosphere.
  4. 4. The costumes and props I gave my character ‘Michael’ a very stereotypical chef uniform to represent his character, as this is what a chef in different films wears, for example the protagonists in ‘Chef’ and ‘Burnt’. I chose for him to wear a white jacket, blue apron and black trousers to suggest he is organised, and also he wears trainers to suggest the protagonist is comfortable in his job.
  5. 5. Camera work and editing I used a variety of shots and camera angles. Here I used an extreme close up shot to see the food being prepared. I used this type of shot often because it suggests that a kitchen environment is quite busy and shows the mood as skilful but also frantic as I used several close ups. This also suggests that, as the film is based on social realism, the use of close ups shows key focal points that occur in this environment. This is similar to the opening to ‘Dexter’, as although it is a TV series, it has similar uses of a close up. D e x t e r
  6. 6. The title font and style I chose to use a simplistic font style, which was Helvetica. I decided to incorporate it into the background to make it fit with the film opening style. Also, the orange of the font is bright and suggests heat, which reflects with the kitchen environment and also contrasts to the other credits, which are more sophisticated. I chose to make the title big to make it stand out and clearly show it is the title.
  7. 7. The story and how the opening sets it up The opening starts with a close up shot of the protagonist entering the room. It then cuts into a close up shot of a knife. This sets the tone of the film as it suggests a busy environment. I then used a shot of a flame, and this is paired with a saturated effect to suggests warmth for the situation.
  8. 8. The genre and how the opening suggests it In this shot I used a mid shot of the protagonist cooking on the oven. This character seems comfortable and happy, this suggests the genre to be a jolly one, such as social realism and/or comedy as his actions are everyday actions that people do when cooking.
  9. 9. How characters are introduced In this opening shot, we see the protagonist enter the kitchen through a close up shot. This suggests mystery as not much is given about the character, and they look serious. Also, as the opening progresses, more of the character is revealed and so we start to feel more comfortable and can relate to him.
  10. 10. Editing effects Over the opening, I have added a saturated effect, which enables a warmer look to the montage shots. In the first shot, I overlayed the text onto the first aid box, which helps to make it more professional. I also used different techniques such as match on action and shot reverse shot to make the opening flow better and make it more realistic, because it reduces the jump cuts.
