  2. 2. YOUR ASSESSMENT MATERIALS Copy and paste these e-stickers onto your work when instructed to do so by your teacher.
  3. 3. Annie Trailer Analysis This is an establishing shot of the New York City skyline. This goes with conventions as this shot is used at the start of films or trailers to set the scene if the fillm. The sun is rising in the background, this is a positive symbol and a symbol of hope. It also shows a new day and a new beginning which ties into the film and the main song. ‘Tomorrow’. This screen shot shows the girls in an orphanage sitting on their bunk beds. This shows poverty as they share beds and all the children share a room together. This follows the original narrative of the film and goes along with the films conventions. However there is a lot of light in the room and the room is not dark or gloomy. This suggests all the girls in the orphanage are happy even though they are not in touch with their parents. This challenges the conventions of films with orphanages as they are usually dark and gloomy (Oliver Twist). This shot shows the girls at the orphanage stood on different levels of the building. One girl is throwing little off the balcony whilst another shields herself with a bin lid. This goes along with the stereotype that children without parents are chaotic and have no order. There are no adults in this shot showing the children are left to their own devices and have no authority figure. This picture shows the first sign of care from Jamie Foxx’s towards Annie. This goes against conventions as the male character is a politician and political figures are usually shown as being cold hearted and ruthless. He puts himself on the line to save the girl, this foreshadows the relationship between the male and the girl.
  4. 4. Annie Trailer Analysis Again this shot shows the chaos of the orphanage. Also the song in the background is ‘Hard knock life’ this leads us to believe the children at the orphanage are not under control. They are throwing plates around the kitchen in their pajamas.
  5. 5. Iron Lady Poster There is a clear blue background, this goes along with conventions as it is basic and makes the image of Margret Thatcher stand out. However you could say that this develops conventions as Mrs. Thatcher was a strong conservative and blue is the colour of the Conservative party.Half of Thatcher’s face is an image of the houses of parliament. This challenges conventions as the main image is distorted by the side image, this shows the viewer that the film will have a political slant and that the houses of parliament are key to the film. The slogan at the top of the poster says ‘Never Compromise’ this links with the title and shows that Thatcher was seen as a strong lady and someone who would never give in. This slogan goes along with conventions as it links to the main theme of the film. The name of the films is the ‘Iron Lady’ this develops conventions as even though it links to the main character it does not give away what the film is about. It is the main characters nickname so if you did not know this then you would not know what this film was about. Therefor this develops but also challenges.
  6. 6. Magazine Analysis Masthead: The masthead is challenging conventions as it is placed behind the main image. This means that the masthead is hidden behind a large image. This would mean that people would not be able to see the EMPIRE logo and could lead to people missing the masthead. Puff: The puff challenges conventions as it does not puff out and almost looks as if it is hidden. This goes against the idea of a puff as a puff is meant to stick out or ‘puff’ out of the page. This shows that the puff is less important and does not need stand out. Cover Lines: The cover lines on this magazine cover challenge conventions as they are in two different fonts. The opening of the cover line is in a smarter more formal font which matches the film whereas the main text is in a bolder font. This does not follow the conventions of a magazine cover as the cover lines are usually clear and in the same font. Background Image: The background image is developed to fit the pirate theme of the film. This is done to add scenery to the cover and the background is also blurred. The blurred effect helps the main image to pop out of the page, this is nice as it makes the main image clearer to the reader. The main image: The front image of Captain Jack Sparrow follows the themes and conventions of a film magazine. The main image shows clearly the main focus of the magazine which is the Pirates of the Caribbean
  7. 7. Casino Royale Trailer Analysis This is the first shot we see in the trailer. This follows conventions as in the background the classic Bond theme is playing. This is emotive music as the viewer recognizes straight away the theme and it brings back excitement and nostalgia. The black and white theme reminds the viewer of old Bond films and creates excitement for old Bond films. This screen shot is still in black and white like the last expressing the emphasis on nostalgia. The main image in this clip shows Bond shooting someone. This goes with the action theme of James Bond films and shows the viewer early on that the Bond conventions are followed in this film. LOW KEY LIGHTING This is the first image we see of the main villain. He is dressed in all black and has slick black hair. He is accompanied in this image by men in military outfits standing by black trucks. This follows conventions of a Bond villain as he is shows to be dark and dangerous. He is also in this sequence shown looking at money. This along with his eye show his imperfections and stick to the stereotypes of a bond villain.
  8. 8. This shot shows the money and wealth in the area that the film Is set. This follows the Bond film conventions as the James Bond films are usually set in areas with high wealth. Also the Union Jack in the background sticks to the British patriotism in the Bond films. Also the iconic British Bentley in the background adds to the British theme of the shot. This shot challenges Bond conventions of a Bond film as the main ‘Bond Girl’ is shown to be lifeless under water. The reason this challenges Bond conventions is because James Bond is meant to be the hero that saves the damsel in distress. This image of the lifeless Bond girl shows that Bond can/could be beaten by someone. This show challenges Bond conventions as usually James Bond is portrayed as a hard character where as in this shot his emotional side is bought out. In this trailer Bond is shown to have actually fallen for a girl. This is his fatal floor in this film and is uncharacteristic of bond.
