•What Narrative theories are used in this genre?
single strand
alternative narrative
•How does the genre represent its characters?
presence/ absence of social groups
social issues
Once finished, the Google Doc Script will be uploaded to each of your Google Drive's
You need to use subject terminology and show you understand it to pass this assignment.
To achieve a DISTINCTION you will create an analysis of a moving image genre with supporting arguments and elucidated examples from that genre, and consistently using subject terminology correctly.

We will now be going through each section you need to include in your Google Doc Script

Everyone in your team needs to add notes to the Google Doc as we progress
The French word for 'type'

Add to your Google Doc which production technology is used in your Genre

Has production technology changed over history?
Is it now more accessible?
Use examples
Cheaper equipment means more access to creativity for ordinary people - not just media companies
One of the critical Films of 2015 was 'Tangerine' was shot with three iPhone 5s smartphones due to budget constraints.

Director Sean Baker said: "Even with a DSLR, we would have ended up having extra crew members, and I would have had to find certain lenses, which I just didn't have the budget for. So what we did is just start looking at iPhone experiments on Vimeo, and we were very impressed by what we found. We realized that, instead of spending money on the equipment, we could put the money on screen on things like locations and having extras."
Production Technology that was too expensive and exclusive is now affordable and owned by people to create their own Media

Online culture has led to more of a Creative Democracy (every one has an equal chance to create)
Using only a Microphone and a Laptop, Podcasts have low production costs and can be downloaded and listened to when the audience wants to

As a team you need to add a section to your Google Doc on how your chosen Genre is distributed to the audience?

Use examples
How does the audience access the media?
The art of story-telling
Please make sure that when you access social media at college that you don't open any images/ videos that may cause embarrassing questions.

You can use Workshops or contact me via social media if you need help with anything.

There is no need to struggle if you are unsure - I will always help you.

Failure to submit work/ contact me if you can't meet the deadline is unprofessional, rude, and an insult to your peers.
What is normal/ expected/ conventional in your genre?

What do the audience expect?
Use the time in the lecture to develop your Google Doc Script and ensure that ALL the elements we have just covered are included
What kind of ideology (values/ thoughts/ beliefs) are behind the conventions?

What can it symbolise/ represent/ act as a metaphor as to the audience?
Does your genre have a certain aesthetic (look)?

Why is this?
Do the conventions of your genre reflect or subvert the culture it was made in?
What graphics and other technical norms are expected in your genre?
Ideological shifts
Has the audience changed?

Has it always been the same?

What has happened to change it?
Is your genre still defined the same way it has always been?

REMEMBER - Genre's normally evolve or fade away so becoming hybrids is common (combinations of genres)

For example Animation is no longer just for kids.....
Hip-hop has evolved and so has it's ideology (values, thoughts, beliefs)

It is now more diverse, less stereotypical and more creative than ever due to it's embrace of other genres.
Have there been any formats that have become obsolescent since the beginning of your genre?
An affectionate tribute/ homage that borrow and plays with the conventions of the genre

Have there been any pastiche's of your genre?
A humorous imitation/ spoof of the genre

Has your genre been parodied?
Nonlinear narrative, disjointed narrative or disrupted narrative is a style of story-telling, sometimes used in media narratives, where events are portrayed out of chronological order.

A non-linear narrative is one that does not proceed in a straight-line, step-by-step fashion, such as where an author creates a story’s ending before the middle is finished.

It is often used to mimic the structure and recall of human memory.
Linear/ Chronological order refers to the arranging of events in their order of occurrence in time, such as the use of a timeline or a sequence of events.

For example a story that has the traditional Beginning, Middle and End structure
No closure

The ending is left open for the interpretation of the audience
The climax (from the Greek 'klimax' meaning “staircase” and “ladder”) or turning point of a narrative work is its point of highest tension or drama or when the action starts in which the solution is given
This is another term for non-traditional story-telling
Traditional story-telling that ends with a neat, tied-up conclusion

The story closes
Telling a story from more than one person's perspective/ point of view.

For example, two stories of two different people that intervene.
Todorov's theory of:

Only one story

There is only one perspective/ point of view

Old narratives were typically told in this way
Who is representing the characters (who are the Producers - what is their background/ agenda)?

Why are they making these choices to represent them this way?

Is it satire (holding a mirror up to society with view to bring change)?
Who is shown/ represented?

Who is excluded?

Is it a fair representation of our culture?
Does your genre tackle social issues?

Does it reflect any cultural struggles/ conflicts?
A stereotype is a belief that may be adopted about specific types of individuals or certain ways of doing things, but that belief may or may not accurately reflect reality.
Are the characters in your genre considered negative representations?

If so, why?
An affectionate tribute to the genre

Using the codes and conventions and paying homage/ respect to them
Are your genres representations positive/ optimistic?

How does it portray its characters?
