Yes narnia is a great example also look at laura croft- the female role was major as she was outwitting all the male roles which is very rare to the genre and if the question was about women roles say how they

-get trapped or captured by enemies

-hero has to rescue her

-makes mistakes- great example

-tag alone

-LOVE INTEREST! <major role (mainly in james bond,indianna jones etc)

I have got a media exam tommorow and i know the main conventions of AA like characters, Quest, Action sequences but im am stuck on locations and i cant remeber any other ones please help!

okay, well if its based on real life then include a location that EVERYONE globally knows - not like a small town that only 1/2 have heard of ! Places like new york, hollywood, las vegas etc. Also, Sweden is a good one - it has different temperatures - snowy and sunny - and Narni was filmed in sweden too - and remember, if you forgot, you need a director! :) x

Don't be worried. If you've got ideas then you can use them the best you can in the exam later. Good luck!

I'll be honest, easier than I was expecting but I don't feel I achieved an A. Perhaps a B though, as I did pretty good in my Cousework and that accounts for 60% of the total media grade.

ahh, well it wasnt that bad - i was a bit tight for time and just managed to finish everything - it took me like 30 minutes to do the trailer and like 30 minutes to do the pitch.... i'd much rather prefer to do a poster for our movie then a trailer! But i cant stop thinking about the film - its stuck in my head! haha x

Posted: 13-06-11 16:53 by Sara

Haha, same. Well I'm glad to hear that you didn't find it too hard! 

I too was a little strapped for time, but I think I got everything done to a good enough standard. We can put this behind us until August when we get our results. All the best!
