Media exam action adventure

Showing 26 to 50 of 69

okay, and i'll say that cause my characters arent stereotypical it makes them more believable and they wanted beleivable characters

BTW, just to remind you, do you know that you have to answer as if your entering the competition, not as if your a student doing an exam,..

and thanks for all the help:) x

Im using arnold schwarzenegger as my villian as he has a big foreign accent and he is really HENCH :0 but ill say i want overpower him with scars eyepatches etc to make him more belivable also another tip....

say your not gonig to over power your film with cgi as this makes the film more belivable and thats what they want they even mentioned not as much cgi and stunts.

BTW, if you need any help then I have created some resources on AA movies, things on narrative structure and what you need to be able to have done/ planned for your movie :) good luck :) x

ok ty im just doing some practice with my pitch tweaking it abit to fit the brief more and the only question id dread is one on box offices or budgets but spose there still quite easy just write alot about why people come and see the films how they rake so much in how they get people to come e.g. marketting, and new things like cgi and 3D tech sara do you have any help with the box office?

Posted: 12-06-11 14:02 by bradley

Wait, so can we use science fiction elements, it asks for believable and realistic characters. So I hope I don't have to scrap the whole thing just a day before the exam. 

Posted: 12-06-11 14:25 by Ryan Boot

sci-fi is a sub genre of action adventure so yes you can use elements but make sure its not al sci-fi as that a complete different genre use  A "QUEST ELEMENT" dont go to deep into sci-fi otherwise it want be an AA film.

Posted: 12-06-11 14:36 by bradley

urm, bradley, was that do i need any help in box office - cause i do! I dont know why AA movies are soo popular and I dont know how to get box office succes - would it just be by marketing??!! :) and would my movie not appeal to a wide global audience because they dont have stereotypical characters??how can i make it appeal to a global audience cause i dont have the conventional hero and pretty women and scary villain! :)

Posted: 12-06-11 14:39 by Sara

Excellent. That's what I was thinking but I guess the AQA pre-release material didn't go into much detail about when it meant by Believable or realistic characters. I'm going to go make sure I've got every thing prepared for tomorrow. Good luck in your exam. 

I'm aiming for a B or a C. I think I'll get it if I try. 

Good luck everyone!

Sara spot on box office succes rely on build up of the film creating a buzz about it and of course the sterotypical characters add to the genre maybe just say youll villian will have scars and foreign accent to make them more cliche to the hollywood say you "wont be pumping it with hollywood style convetions but youll will have a little touch of it in your film but not as much to keep you film fresh and unique to the makret". :) hope that helped.

Posted: 12-06-11 15:17 by bradley

im saying that im using certain actors but im not pumping them with too much e.g tattoes,guns etc so it wont be over the top and to cliche and more belivable.

Posted: 12-06-11 15:19 by bradley

thank you! :) and shoudl i say that by making my characters not stereotypical makes them believbale and realistic which engages a larger audience as mor people can relate to them

Posted: 12-06-11 15:20 by Sara

Yes thats a great example also add some touches of a sterotypical characters thought just in case e.g. hero strong,intelligant and say the use of blumar and katz

  • finding out about relevant events and conditions in immediate surroundings, society and the world
  • seeking advice on practical matters or opinion and decision choices
  • satisfying curiosity and general interest
  • learning; self-education
  • gaining a sense of security through knowledge

Personal Identity

  • finding reinforcement for personal values
  • finding models of behaviour
  • identifying with valued other (in the media)
  • gaining insight into one's self

Bascially being able to relate heros and chacaters to their onw lifes and situations. :0

thanks! And i could also say that the villain role in narnia was a female and the heros were children but the film was still very very successful :)
