AS Foundation Portfolio - Evaluation Questions
Transcript of AS Foundation Portfolio - Evaluation Questions
In what ways does your media product
use, develop or challenge forms of real
media products? Conventions of a thriller:
1. The thriller is mainly based around some sort of murder/theft/crime.
2. The protagonist will be hurt/injured due to the actions of the villian.
3. The antagonist will make the protagonist seem helpless and isolated.
4. The suspense will build up, and the pace will increase.
5. The audience are put into an ambiguous position.
6. Eerie music being played
7. An enigma some where in the movie
Other conventions are:
* Dark lighting
* diegetic and non diegetic sounds, helps the suspense and excitement to build up.
* Lots of blood, you will see this quite frequently throughout some thrillers. QUESTION 2:
How does your media product represent
particular social groups? Detective
David Mills Monisha Mahajan It we also used Barthes theory.
The protagonist wants to know who murdered
her best friend. We also used Todorov's theory as well,
At the start, all is well and nothing is wrong (equilibrium)
However near the ending of the sequence the protagonist's
best friend has just been murdered (disequilibrium)
For the rest of the movie, she is finding out who killed her best friend, and then at the end of the movie she finds out who killed her friend (resolution) Se7en serial killer Camiel Choudhary QUESTION 3
What kind of media institution might distribute
your media product and why? http://www.scribd.com/doc/29978424/Question-2-Done-1 Working Title is co-owned by Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan, but was co-founded by Tim
Bevan and Sarah Radclyffe in 1983.
Working Title, are owned by Universal Pictures. Universal own 67%
of Working Title.
Also, Working Title have a lot of freedom, as in they can use upto £35million
without Universal having to ask questions, however, if they do want more than
£35million, then universal will start asking questions.
They use reels, which is very expensive, but they don't worry about the cost too much,
as they are borrowing from Universal.
Universal is a conglomerate.
These companies won't distribute our company, because they want to have the hollywood and they want to make a very large profit out of movies. For Warp, they use digital cameras, so that
they can save a lot of money.
They don't produce reels, instead they produce
small micro cards, which is much more cheaper
and lighter to distribute.
Warp X, will be a good company which could distribute
our movie, as they like younger generations to take part in
making movies (that's is why they partly made up the scheme
of making a movie in just 5 days). They would help us distribute
all sorts of things, such as posters/adverts. PRODUCTION COMPANY Cost Things to consider: Distributors QUESTION 4:
Who would be the audience for your media product? My moodboard of who the target audience are / could be. Humzah Sarwar - target audience member. Bithia Large -
target audience member Question 5:
How did you attract/address your audience? Question 6:
What have you learnt about technologies from the process of constructing this product? Question 7:
Looking back at your preliminary task, what do you feel you have learnt in the progression from it to the full product What is a preliminary task?
Preliminary exercise: Continuity task involving filming and editing a character opening a door, crossing a room and sitting down in a chair opposite another character, with whom she/he then exchanges a couple of lines of dialogue. This task should demonstrate match on action, shot/reverse shot and the 180-degree rule.
Match on action is when the person is looking at an object and then the camera turns towards that object, making it look as if the person is looking at that object. E.g. A phone starts to ring, the person looks at the fun, and then there is a "cut" and the camera is now looking at that phone.
Shot/Reverse shot is two or more shots are edited together that alternates characters. E.g. This could happen during a conversation.
180 Degree rule is when there are two cameras pointing at two different people and looks towards them when they are speaking. E.g. This could happen during a conversation as wel. What was our main task?
Main task: the titles and opening of a new fiction film, to last a maximum of two minutes. Our new ficition film will be based on a "thriller genre".
All video and audio material must be original, produced by the candidate(s), with the exception of music or audio effects from a copyright-free source. Techniques/Camera shots that we have used in our product...
We have stuck by with the 180 degree rule at all times.
We have used match on action in our product.
We have also kept the continuity going.
We have a range of camera shots that we have used, and they are;
medium close up
medium long shot
low angle shot
point of view shot
Preliminary Task - camera shots This is the 1st shot that we see when it is played. It starts off with an extreme
close up on the door handle, and then it zooms out so that the camera could
see the actor/actress coming in.
The 2nd picture is the zoomed out one. This is a medium long shot as it shows
from waist and upwards. On the left is a medium long shot, as we can see from his waist and
On the right, is a match on action, by him responding, Sonal (the girl in that picture) looks up and looking at him.
We have developed the match on action, because in our main the victim looks at the phone when it rings ( well the camera looks at the phone - with an close up on it). This is of Viraj leaving the room, it is a medium long shot of him leaving the room.
The second picture of him, shows him going out the room. This proves the idea of
continuity, this will helped us in our main task, as continuity was a major factor of
it. This is a long shot of Viraj exiting the building. This too
adds on with the continuity.
We were also able to hold a steady shot at this moment as well, this helped us with our as holding a steady shot when needed was absolutely critical. Main Task - Final product! The left picture shows a close up of a girl's legs walking.
The picture on the right show a close up of a boy's legs
walking, but it is also a long shot for the female characater,
as we can now see all of her. The picture on the left is a long shot. On the right is a medium close
up on Monisha's face. This was an important shot, because at that time, a dog would be barking, and she would obviously turn around check if everything is alright. This is known as a red herring, this is a sign before something bad happens, so it's telling the viewers and the actor that there will be a negative omen in the near future.
On the left you can see that we are film on the actors left side, so we shall be sticking to this side, due to the 180 degree rule, which can not be broken, unless if the camera moves to the actors right hand side. However, we could not move the camera to the actors right side as we did not have a smooth surface to move it along and nothing that could replicate a dolly effect. On the left is still a long shot, but as you can see the camera is still
focusing on the left side of the actor/actress.
The picture on the right, is a point of view shot from the stalker's
point of view. This shot was good as it created much more tension,
it shows the audience how close the stalker was getting to her. On the left is a match on action shot, Monisha is on the phone,
and then the stalker has to react quickly and hide behind a tree.
On the right is a high angle shot, of Sonal (the victim) it shows that
Monisha is talking to Sonal On the left is a close up of the stalker's leg goin into a house. This was a good shot,
because we didn't want the audience to see the stalker's face, otherwise that would ruin
the whole enigma, so we kept it at his feet and in my opinion, I think it adds a lot more tension in it, because they (the audience) know that the stalker is goin in the house.
On the right, is an extreme close up on the knife. We used and extreme close up, because we thougt it would add lot more effect by just looking at the knife getting closer and closer towards the victim. Different types of shots! Extreme Close Up Close Up Medium Close Up Medium Long Shot Long Shot Extreme Long Shot Crane Shot Low Angle Shot High Angle Shot From our preliminary task, I have learnt many different
types of shots and techniques that we could possibly use
in our main task. I am very glad that we could do a preliminary
task, as it got us prepared for what kinds of camera shots we could
include in our main task and it made us more comfortable with the
Through the time period between the preliminary and main task,
I can now say that, I know my camera shots very well and won't hesistate
to use them in future events! Pictures of the different types of
technology that I have used. Video, explaining the different types of
technology that I have used. Furthermore, many people believe that women can't do anything, and they are just thinking stereotypically.
In this movie, our protagonist is a female, and we can show that females aren't incompetant and that they are
capable of doing anything that a male protagonist would do.
This picture of Lara Croft (Angelina Jolie) shows that women aren't incompetant and they can go to extreme measures
just to find something out. Our protagonist, also goes to extreme measures just to find out who had killed her best friend, this shows that her she has a lot of courage and never backs down. Most people may think killers are always middle aged man, but we decided to have the hitman,
at a young age. This would be good, as young men are very fit and strong. Titles that are in our thriller movie are very similar, or exact to what a real thriller movie has.
