In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?
Analysing real media products may be an important stage of pre-production that will improve your overall film. In this post, I evaluate how I manipulated conventions of these products to my own advantage. Below is a video specifically concerning my short film, Screen Three, and its relationship with real media products. For example, Screen Three does not have a happy ending since the audience is left on a cliffhanger after horrific events happen to the film’s protagonist. This conflicts with a convention of most drama films where the main character lives “happily ever after”. Aspects like this are explored in the commentary below.
