Did I use narrative devices in my AS portfolio?
What kind of narrative devices did I use?
FlashbacksI used flashbacks to at first confuse the audience by showing them themale character receiving a text message with a picture of his deceasedex-wife with the person she was cheating on him with.After providing the audience with this story, I then allowed them tosee what had happened in the past, which then meant that theaudience understood the storyline.The impact of this on the audience is, it gives them the full ‘picture’ ofwhat the characters’ have been through, longer periods of time shownfor example, half of the film is in one year and the other half is of ayear previous to that. This means that audience have moreinformation to interpret the film and understand it in a way that makessense to them.

Voice-OversDuring interviews with experts, for example, Ben Pipes. I usedintercuts of him playing volleyball for his LeAF BU team. Duringthese intercuts, I use the interview with him as a voice-over.The use of voice-overs are to provide the audience with‘background’ information on each expert or to provide footagethat is relevant to what is being said in the interview. Such asduring the interview with Ms Blanshard where she is discussingthe LeAF Elite Athlete Academy and also the LeAF Stage andScreen school and relevant footage is playing.The impact of this on the audience is they are able to watch abalance of interview and footage and are able to link what isbeing said by visuals.
