Evaluation of Main Task Unfinished Business By Fanoula Lymboura
<ul><li>As our task, is an opening of a thriller, we have researched the amount of thriller films that come out on DVD each year, and the types of things they include, especially in the mise-en-scene. </li></ul><ul><li>Lighting in the graveyard is quite dark and mysterious, and the fact that it is raining sets the scene well and could be seen as symbolic to the coming scenes. The connotation of the scene is that the ‘girl’ is up to no good, and that she wants to hurt him, but the audience is deceived with the denotation that either could be the ‘evil’ one. </li></ul><ul><li>The props used in the scene sets the tone and setting of the film, and automatically unsettles the viewer, as is clichéd in films quite often. The grave stone symbolises death, and could provoke the idea that maybe ‘ Daniel’ will also die at the end of the film. </li></ul><ul><li>Camera work in the scene, is quite essential, as it keeps the suspense constant throughout the film in order for the audience to be kept ‘ in the dark’ so to speak and make them want to keep watching, and form questions that are left unanswered. </li></ul><ul><li>Costumes of the characters are all dark, which could be the connotation of mourning, trouble, danger and death. </li></ul><ul><li>These are the main conventions of thriller genre film, that we have taken into account which instantly sets this genre. </li></ul>
In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products? <ul><li>Firstly, our media product uses conventions of real media products, as it is a DVD, and this is already a type of media. </li></ul><ul><li>Secondly, it develops forms of media, because it adds to the thriller genre, and DVDs. </li></ul><ul><li>Finally it challenges forms and conventions of media </li></ul>
How does your media product represent particular social groups? <ul><li>The video, represents different social groups, such as: </li></ul><ul><li>Thriller genre audiences, </li></ul><ul><li>All gender types, </li></ul><ul><li>And people over the age of 15. </li></ul><ul><li>This is because, people that do not enjoy thrillers, will not watch this, so it will not represent them. Also there are no limitations to any gender types, as it is stereotypical to assume that only males will enjoy thrillers. It also represents people over the age of 15, because parents might not want their young children to watch this. </li></ul>
What kind of media institution might distribute your media product and why? <ul><li>The product, will be available for download via websites such as iTunes, as well as be shown on television and sold on DVDs. </li></ul>
Who would be the audience for your media product? <ul><li>The main audience for my media product, would be people over the age of 15, as thrillers are more appealing to older audiences. Also, people who like thrillers will be the main audience, as they will be the biggest critics. </li></ul>
How did you attract/ address your audience? <ul><li>The audience, was addressed in this, by a fresh cast and director, which would mean a different take on a thriller than many other films under that genre. Also, the title adds a sense of mystery, which would make the audience want to continue watching to find out what is going to happen next. The music and sound effects added emphasise the suspense created in the opening sequence which attracts the audience. The mise-en-scene attracts the audience as such that seeing a grave yard would form questions in the audiences head about what is going on, and what is going to happen. This continues throughout the opening sequence, and this attracts a wide audience. </li></ul>
What have you learnt about technologies from the process of constructing this product? <ul><li>I have learnt many things in the process of constructing this product, such as working at the CLC centre to edit the sequence together, and that the iMovies software is better than the Flipshare software that comes with the camcorders we were given to work with, as it is more advanced and has more features. In addition, the filming process was quite difficult, especially for the preliminary task, but it gets easier when you do the main task, as you are more used to it by then. Also, the burning of the disc, in order to make it a DVD, was nothing I have done before, so it was an experience and learning opportunity. </li></ul>
Looking back at your preliminary task, what do you feel you have learnt in the progression from it to the full product? <ul><li>The editing process in filming, and maintaining continuity within in order to have a flowing image, was crucial, and I have learnt that it is not easy to notice minute details that are wrong, and to schedule a reshooting date to fix this. Also, thinking imaginatively to create an original idea that hasn’t been clichéd. </li></ul>
