<ul><li>The ideology behind the comedy genre is to entertain people and make them smile and laugh. Most comedies try to have a feel good factor about them to try and make the watcher go in his/her comfort zone and relax. </li></ul>
<ul><li>The way comedies are normally represented is by having different types of characters which clash with each other. For example in the film Tropic Thunder, it about a group of actors who get thrown into a island and all have different ideas about what they should do so there is conflict which is show in a funny way. </li></ul>
<ul><li>A lot of comedies are often made based a certain audience. So for example Monster vs Aliens is obviously aimed at children as it is a cartoon and everyone is smiling. Where as The 40 year old virgin is aimed at an older audience as which the word virgin its about sex. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Most of the time teen comedies have teenaged characters and are normally based at a school. Also I often has them getting into some sort of trouble or pridicament. </li></ul>
These are all shots from teen comedy. By looking at theses example shot I can see there is always people in focus. Also just by looking at the shot we can we make assumptions about the characters and what they are doing.
