Textual Analysis of Film Trailers

You need to fully understand the conventions of film trailers - and prove to
the examiner that you do – before making your own.

You must analyse at least three film trailers from the genre you are
going to make in detail, with links to the film’s website/Twitter feed etc
embedded in the blog.
The trailers themselves need to be embedded in your blog from YouTube with
written description.

For each film trailer comment on:

Mise-en-scene

   •    Connotations (props, locations, people)

   •    Iconography

Camera

   •    The camera shots used (Close ups, long shots etc)

   •    The camera movements (zoom, pan, tilt, track)

Encoding/Decoding:

   •    Audience reception- preferred reading of the text

   •    Audience gratifications and pleasures offered

   •    Representation of groups

   •    Dominant Ideologies

Editing

   •    Pace of shots; continuity editing; montage sequences; special effects;
        the transitions used

Genre

   •    How the sub-genres are signified
