Evaluation - Question 1

In what ways does your media product use, develop, or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?
Real media products consist on the use of:
  • an establishing shot - The London eye
  • title sequence in a specific order - We had the ident first and then the production company followed by the actors names and finally, the music & edited by...
  • ident - the music usually comes after the ident but we decided to add heavy breathing as well as some of the music
  • setting a mood - the breathing right at the start shows that there will be some sort of tension in the film and that creates a chilling mood for the audience
Intertextuality we've been using because of inspiritaions from other films:

similar opening to the taking of pelham 123 because of the establishing shot that they use in the start is similar to our establishing shot of the london eye.

Another inspirational use of intertextuality we saw in another film was the close up of the face when the women wakes up from the water in 'What lies beneath'. We used the same shot and positioning of the camera to make the same effect that the film made.
