The usefulness of narrative Narrative can be defined as the story that is being told and the way in which that story is told, i.e. the techniques used. In our teaser trailer we used montage editing, as most teaser trailers do, to fit a lot about the film and a lot of story hints in a short space of time. The shots jumped around and jumped from clip to clip so we could fit a lot of different shots in the one minute teaser trailer. This also makes it look more interesting to the audience and gives the viewers more hints about what the film could be about and the genre it is. Our teaser trailer is also non-linear, meaning it is out of time order, this is because we wanted the clips to jump around and for the audience to want to see more and so they found it more appealing. We also aimed to create a restricted narrative, so there was still things the audience didn’t know and we implied that by watching the full movie they would find these things out in the hope that this would entice the audience to go and see more.
Plot, Story and Enigmas Borwell and Thompson’s idea on Plot and Story:• The story is the combination of the entire sequence of events that is shown as well as everything we conclude has happened but may not have been shown, basically everything that was inferred.• The plot is the explicit presentation of events, i.e. the details of the events that are expressed in a clear and obvious way.• Elements of the story are left open to interpretation as we tend to assume things about characters etc. and the plot is occasionally left open, like in Inception for example in order to make you think about how it could end and other possible endings. Barthes’ idea on Enigmas:• His idea on enigma codes is that it is the images/sequences that control the audience’s thought on what is happening and that information can be held off to make the audience want to know what’s happening. They present puzzles to the viewers that need to be solved, and they can be both minor and major.
Conclusion Toconclude I think that narrative is very important in both full films and teaser trailers as without it it would just be a series of shots without any meaning. The plot and narrative make the trailer or film interesting for the audience and make them want to watch more, without the narrative, a plot or a storyline films would be very boring.
