Narrative theories

  1. 1. Deadline: Narrative theories By Tamanna
  2. 2. Enigma Code • This is when you hook the audience giving them a puzzle to work out. • we have developed the enigma code further by using the enigma code throughout the whole film. The film is a mystery where the audience are left to figure out what the actual plot is. This means our audience will be continuously hooked throughout the film.
  3. 3. Binary opposites • a binary opposition is a pair of terms or concepts that are theoretical opposites, for example Good vs. Evil. This theory was created by Levi Strauss • We use good and evil within our film as the female teenage ghost tries to haunt the main character who is sweet and innocent.
  4. 4. Equilibrium/Disequilibrium • Equilibrium is when there is balance and harmony within the film, i.e. relationships. • Disequilibrium is when the balance and harmony is interrupted, so something happens. This theory was created by Todorov. • Our film starts off with disequilibrium as lindsey (our main character) is running away from something which is frightening her. We then have equilibrium as the characters watch a movie together as usual in ‘harmony’ however we then have disequilibrium as things start to go wrong.
