Transcripts - Pooja evaluation
Our opening sequence is more like napoleon dynamite where at the being there is no speech that is being said, but coming half way through the opening sequence we have put a voice over where it tell us what the person is thinking while the voice over talks. It is different to napoleon dynamite in many ways because in our opening sequence it show that it is a teen opening sequence and you can see this by the girl looking at her year book and remembering her memories, but in napoleon dynamite it is a complete different thing this is because they don’t have a voice over at all but they have music that is playing and what they show is plates with different food on it with credits written in between the food plates, whereas our opening sequence is where a girls looks back at memories and she has a pen in her hand and there they show her crossing out people who she doesn’t like, and the people she likes the most she would puts a heart around it showing her love, and she also has a boyfriend who is like really hot for her! But then there is another girl involved who Melisa thinks she likes her boyfriend so therefore she wants her to stay away from her, in the voice over that we did it tells us what she is thinking in that she clearly expresses her feelings but without showing her face. We have made a lot of changes the opening sequence by many ways this is because we did change a few conventions so that it would feel like that we have copied napoleon dynamite, but we have also kept some of the conventions by not showing the protagonist which is much more similar to napoleon dynamite because in that they also do not show the protagonist in it as well.
Our media product represents social groups by showing feeling of the way the girl may be feeling. It definitely represents the teenagers this is because the opening sequences show a girl drawing on her year book and this would be because she is looking back into her past, but then she sees a picture of her and her boyfriend which make her all loved up but on the next page she sees Nikhil holding another girl which makes her really jealous and really angry, it would also represent females and this would be because the way the protagonist seems to looks like she is powerful in the way she draws on the book, and the voice over even shows that she is the type of person who would go up to anyone and tell them where they stand, if they did something to annoy her. And the way it represents particular social groups is that it shows the different types of groups that would be made due to some people being popular and some being not so popular
I think film4 would distribute out film because film4 is the type of distribution that would make is to catch the audiences eye. And I also think channel 4 also distribute it because they do show many teen films so ‘popular’ could be another movie which they could distribute.
The audience for our media product would be mainly aged 12+ I would suggest that if people aged 40 and over do want to watch it they could but I dont think they would get the concept that quickly and this may be because they may not think it is appropriate.
Theway we attracted the audience is by putting up posters so that they could see the main characters that taking part.
There were many different technologies that were used in making our opening sequence, such as:FacebookWord pressCameraI movieYouTubeI Macs These were the main things and soft wares that we used to create our opening sequence
I would say that I have learnt a lot from the preliminary task which would involve the use of all the different technologies I would particularly say that I learnt more about how to use the camera and in what position it should be to get the correct angle
