: to 23/2 Homework: Complete ALL research and work on INDIVIDUAL blogs. Details below (What to cover’) – see model analysis (‘Analysis Model’) Prepare for any additional filming needed and book cameras. Be ready for showcase first week back 24/2 – everything else done please – NOT group blogs, NOT evaluation but a focus on your INDIVIDUAL BLOGS although sorting your group blog and preparing evaluation question notes is good as long as your individual blog is now UP TO DATE and AWESOME  Mrs T will try and help over HT asap on DETAILS ANALYSIS MODEL Choose a few pertinent points for each and discuss in detail – don’t try to cover everything. Clip video, insert images and use free online interesting media apps! MEANING/EFFECT – choose a couple of pertinent points and discuss in detail – technical to be included as well as meaning and effects on audience... AUDIENCE - how producer has adapted text to target/attract and how audience might respond (more than one possible interpretation by audience) – your product as well as real products How linked to your work?? How will you use what you’ve learnt/ found out in your work – be specific where you can Overviews of your research?? It needs to be clear what you learnt from your research – simply analysing 100s of Opening Sequences isn’t enough – there needs to be an overview of what you found out and how you will use it Start researching sound – practice on listening and respond over half term Finish researching titles/credits – start planning ready for making if not already Remember this is an opening and as such has a particular FUNCTION! It should be explained as a coherent way to engage the audience in a way that fits genre, creates enigma, introduces institutional information and meets the codes and conventions. It must start the narrative. WHAT TO COVER a. 3-5 Opening sequences analysed for camera/narrative/features/editing/mes etc b. 3-5 Opening sequences analysed for TITLES and Credits – content, order, style (colour, font, any other artwork), frequency (when/where in the opening? Irregular or regular?), Placement on screen c. 3-5 Opening sequences analysed for sound – you should use technical vocabulary (see the ‘Film Analysis’ blog for help) but discuss how sound is being used to create atmosphere and meaning. Think about the effect on the audience and what it adds to the film – it functions to ‘hook’ them in as well as effecting their emotions. Use the words from the grid in the teaching pack. Remember you MUST i. Show an overview of your ‘findings’ – use brainstorms or visual diagrams such as a mindmap (xmind is good) or a Prezi or Glogster (we have student accounts for


Work Set all of these – see main blog (use labels) for log in details ii. Show how you will use what you have found in your work iii. Evaluate what you’ve looked at – is it effective sound? Does the opening ‘hook’ the audience? d. Get anything that should be done on your blog in practical terms done – labels, linked to main blog, linked to group blog, linked to individuals in your group, adminned Mrs T et Is your blog really legible online? Can you read the sidebars? e. Have you used multimedia content? You should have embedded images, CLIPPED videos, glogs, wixs, prezis, powtoons etc Have you used your phone? Facebook? Twitter? Have you screengrabbed relevant items and uploaded them? Are all your posts explained? (Lots of posts with no words, only pictures)
