Today we started looking in more detail at the requirements of the question 1 in the exam and what we might write about if we were faced with the Thor fight scene. We began to discuss how to make notes and the structure that we need to follow to produce a good quality response.
Today we looked at the range of films that could be included under the Action/Adventure umbrella. We started to look at the main elements that make up the Quest, Disaster, Fantasy, Swashbuckler, Historical and Thriller sub-genres. The film clip in your exam could come from any of these sub-genres - or a hybrid of more than one - and so it is important that you become familiar with them.
The clip to use when considering what you might write in response to this exam question is the clip below this writing. Remember that you can consider everything that we have discussed before Christmas - Propp, Todorov, Levis-Strauss, Barthes, Character types such as the Hero and Villain etc.
