Open, Closed, Multi-strand, Linear and Non-linear narratives
Transcript of Open, Closed, Multi-strand, Linear and Non-linear narratives
Open, Closed, Multi-strand, Linear and Non-linear narratives.
open narratives usually have many characters and no forseeable ending. a good example of Open narrative is Soap Operas, such as Eastenders and HollyOaks. They're usually multi-stranded and in Chonological order or 'Real-Time'. It is rare that shows that have this narrative have non-digetic music or sound. (scribd.com)
Closed narrative films usually have a 'tight' reading, theyre usually 2 hours and have a 'The End' to complete the story. The time is usually compressed, fitting many years into 2 hours. There is usually a soundtrack, a lot of non-diegetic music backing the story. A good example of this, is the film 'About Time' (2013) it compresses around 20 years into just over 2 hours and has an end to the story. (scribd.com)
many different works are made up of several different strands, for example, the film 'Love actually' has around 8 different story strands that link in the end. "By juxta-positioning the strands the audience will not only be concerned about the action, but also the outcome of each strand and how they're related to eachother"
Linear and non-linear
Linear- The storyline has a begining, middle and end. Very simple.
Non-Linear- The opposite to linear, uses Flashbacks, Rewinds, Re-Plays, non-chronological ordering and can also have no ending to it, perhaps left on a cliff hanger. (nyu.ed)
