  1. 1. INDUCTION ASSESSMENT2015 My Starting Point Give examples of skills and/or experience you have in this area. Think about projects or work you have completed which have used these skills. Rate yourself 1-10 (1= unconfident, 10 = extremely confident) Mac computers I’ve used them a few times 2/3 Photoshop Used in GCSE Photography and BTEC art. Basic Knowledge 6/7 InDesign none 0 Final Cut none 0 DSLR Cameras Photography at GCSE, Concert Photography in my own time. 7/8 Micro areas of moving image [editing, camera, sound and mise en scene] None really 0/1 Assignment 1: Write a 500 written analysis of representation of social class. You must make reference to the micro areas of mise en scene and camera, using appropriate terminology. People Just Do Nothing In the sitcom ‘People just do nothing’ Mise en scene and camera techniques play a large role in how you perceive a character and their lifestyle. A lot can be assumed because of clothing, dialogue and hometown. People will also notice certain details more that others depending on how much camera focus and footage they receive, also if they are spoken about. The sitcom mainly uses a low camera angle when the scene is outside, it is also used more on the men of it than the women. A low angle shot is usually used to make something feel superior to something else. In this context the low angle is supposed to make the three men seem superior an almost invincible. However, to me, paired with the tall building in the background, it makes them seem more inferior. They may look all big and tall with the low angle, but there is a building behind them that is much bigger. This can insinuate that even though these people try to act big and tough they are still the little people in the big society. Also, they are placed, not just at the bottom of the building, but at the bottom of the steps next to the building, inferring they are lower than the usual standard, they’re low lives. It’s almost mocking them and their radio station that they have in the show, almost insinuating that they will never make it to the top.
  2. 2. INDUCTION ASSESSMENT2015 Throughout the episode that we watched in class, the characters were very consistent with their wardrobe, always wearing some named designer gear or a tracksuit of some sort. This is synonymous with the ‘chav’ stereotype, people who dress like them are also seen as people who would often be in or cause trouble. They are also seen to be smoking weed through the episode, only confirming any suspicions about the kind of people they are. But for the initial sight, it’s the clothing that sets in you opinion of what the character will be like. With the fact that they are supposed to have very little money, not having a job and living in a quite rough area, you wouldn’t expect these three people to be wearing expensive designer gear, so that suggests that their clothing is either a cheaper fake version of the designer brand, or that they have stolen that merchandise because they can’t afford the full amount. Sound is also very important in any form of media. In this particular show the main sound is dialogue. Dialogue helps build character depending on the person’s accent and dialect. If they speak clear and of Queens English, they are more likely to be of a higher class. The people in this sitcom are the complete opposite of that, they have a thick accent and their dialect is that of an uneducated person with more slang than I can comprehend, they are almost impossible to understand at some points of the episode. This is also part of the ‘chav’ and ‘thug’ stereotype that these characters are connected to. An example of their lingo that shows their lack of education is that they say to get ‘christianed’ and not to get christened, which is standard English to most people, but even they get it wrong, which gives us an idea of how little- if any- education they have received or paid any attention to.
  3. 3. INDUCTION ASSESSMENT2015 In the scenes where they are in the flat, the wide camera angles and pans of the flat show that they have a very small flat with minimal décor. This confirms peoples assumptions that they haven’t got a lot of money. However, also shown in the flat is them drinking and smoking cannabis, which is a juxtaposition to what the rest of the flat shows. Also, they are seen to be taking weed in a room, later on it is shown to be their daughter’s room, showing how low in society they actually are. I think that the characters in the sitcom perfectly live up to everything that the camera techniques and the mise en scene make them out to be. To me, the techniques were very successful and it was clear what the intention was, and they definitely supported and carried that idea through to plant the firm idea in our mind of what the show was going to be like. Assignment 2: Task 1: Prepare flat plans for a new college magazine, to include a front page and contents page. Task 2: Create the front page of the magazine using Photoshop and a downloaded font from DaFont.com.
