  1. 1. In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products? By Rebecca Wilson
  2. 2. Conventions <ul><li>Our two main focuses for our title sequence were to establish the genre for our audience and to keep continuity throughout. </li></ul><ul><li>Titles were created and fitted to the sequence to fit the conventions of the opening to a film which appear over the clips in a significant order, used by the majority of films: production company, film title, actors, editors, directors. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Conventions <ul><li>Most title sequences have a voiceover or music. </li></ul><ul><li>We have chosen the song “Higher and Higher” by Jackie Wilson. </li></ul><ul><li>This has been added in after editing, making it non diegetic, although the protagonist is dancing to her own song. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Form <ul><li>To represent the romantic side to the genre, the protagonist falls into the arms of a boy and they gaze into each others eyes. </li></ul><ul><li>Special effects in iMovie to slow down the clip made the genre more apparent and the meeting more significant to the rest of the film. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Form <ul><li>The lyrics in our soundtrack fit in with the romance and the name of the title &quot;Lucky in Love&quot;. The ‘rom-com’ genre should make the audience feel good therefore must evoke happiness. The lyrics say: </li></ul><ul><li>Your love , is lifting me higher, </li></ul><ul><li>Than I’ve ever been lifted before, </li></ul><ul><li>So keep it up , quench my desire, </li></ul><ul><li>And I’ll be at your side forever more, </li></ul><ul><li>You know your love , keeps on lifting me, </li></ul><ul><li>Higher. Higher and higher. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Form <ul><li>The comical elements of the genre were displayed through the acting. </li></ul><ul><li>The protagonist endures slapstick, like walking into a lamppost, stumbling in high heels and elaborate dancing. </li></ul>
  7. 7. The End
