Done by: Maria DECISIONS & REVISIONS We changed our opening sequence as a group and improved it much more. We have also looked into themes and concepts and researched about them. We had a problem with what theme and what concept our opening sequence was and we then overcame them by researching more about different themes and concepts. From draft 1 to draft 2 we made a huge improvement. We developed out idea of the opening sequence and we also have developed out inspirational scenes. These changes helped us improve by understanding more about our opening sequence and how we are developing our ideas. C

Done by: Milka NARRATIVE USED We will be using: non-linear narrative = film shown in correct same order as happened events. some scenes will be in chronological order Make it clearer to the audience so don‟t get confused with order of events. order of these detailed events need to be very clear as they are the key of our film. o linear narrative = mostly made of flashbacks as you may see the event first and then go onto the explanation. Creates enigma Divided into three sections setup, conflict, decision
FILM THEORY MARIA We applies Todorov‟s theory in our storyAt the beginning we use equilibrium of when the girl is happy looking at the pictures.We then realize that something is wrong with her as we see her not smiling anymore.We then see the flashback of the two arguing.Then the recognition of something is wrong when the boyfriend e-mails her saying look at your e-mail.And an attempt to fix the situation. Q
FILM THEORY MARIA We did not use claude-levi strauss theory because he believed that all movies should end in conflict. However our movie ended in the two being together.
LIONS GATE ENTERTAINMENT BY:MARIA Logo: Canadian entertainment company Founded: 1997 Made: $1,704,000,000 I like this company because they mostly do drama- based films. Such as “Precious” which made $62,889,395. The budget of the film was &10,000,000. So it shows that they make a lot of profit out of it. R
PARAMOUNT PICTURES MARIA Logo: Operating income: $1.2 billion Founded: 1912 American film and television production/distribution company. I like the distributing company because they make inspirational movies which have a strong moving meaning behind them. One example of a film is: Freedom writers. The budget of the film was $21,000,000 And the box office made $43,090,741 R
COLUMBIA MARIA Logo: Founded: 1919 American film production and distribution company. I like this distributing company because most of their target audience is aimed at teenagers. They made films such as: The Ugly Truth It was a Romantic Drama and was aimed at the same target audience as the one in our opening sequence Its budget was $38 million R And the box office made: $205,298,907
