Evaluation Question 1

  1. 1. Evaluation Question 1 In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?
  2. 2. Thriller Conventions
  3. 3. (un)conventional features of my thriller film-Incriminated • Protagonist • Antagonist • Enigma • Settings • Themes • Visual style • Iconography
  4. 4. Protagonist Our protagonist isn’t as you’d think in a typical thriller convention, he comes across as the protagonist to begin with as he has gone through trauma but it confuses the audience as they begin to question whether he is the protagonist or not. In our thriller he is portrayed as innocent and the audience are drawn to like him as he goes searching for his friends when they have gone missing. It is a protagonist alone trying to find his friends which is not unusual for a thriller so we have used a typical thriller convention.
  5. 5. Antagonist We decided to leave our antagonist unknown to cause mystery for the audience and it allows them to keep guessing. The tape recording at the beginning instantly confuses the audience. Thriller films tend to confuse their audience to make them more tense and interesting to watch but it is usual easy to guess who the antagonist is unlike in our thriller where it is not know therefore we challenged this thriller convention.
  6. 6. Iconography We used a tape recorder which told the audience it was a crime/investigation thriller as it is a recording of an interview between a police man and an unknown character. We used this prop to cause confusion for the audience and also to make it seem like Scott was not completely innocent which follows a typical thriller convention. We used a torch when Scott wakes up and starts to look for his friends to show the audience that it is night time. A torch is often used in thriller films, it connotes a sense of mystery and darkness which makes the thriller more thrilling and tense to watch and it means the audience don’t know what will happen next or what will be in the darkness.
  7. 7. Visual Style Our scenes were mostly low key lighting to show the audience it was night time and also to connote a sense of mystery, unknowing and uneasiness. A torch is used in most scenes as well to allow the audience to see what is happening. We go this idea from The Blair Witch Project. We used fast editing when Scott is running, also reflecting our genre, a thriller. For example The Silence Of The Lambs.
  8. 8. Settings Our protagonist and victims are spending a night in a castle. The type of setting is often used in thriller films as it is isolated from anywhere else and it is dark and spooky. Here we have used a traditional thriller convention. We used the setting of a castle to make the audience question what has happened whether it was paranormal activity, abduction or murder. The castle setting was great for building tension and suspense and keeping the audience on the edge of their seats which is the feeling we wanted to create from our thriller.
  9. 9. Enigma The protagonist creates a lot of enigma as the audience is asking lots of question as to why he didn’t go missing and if he was involved in why his friends went missing and also what he saw in the cave when he drops his torch. We used the thriller convention mystery so that it was more exciting for the audience to watch and for them to try and figure out what was happening which was cause them to want to watch the rest of the film to see how it ends.
  10. 10. Themes We also conveyed a crime/investigation/detective themed thriller, to do this we used a tape recorder as a prop to record a police interview between a policeman and our protagonist, the tape recorder is repeatedly shown throughout the thriller sequence and is played over other scenes to make it clearer to the audience what is happening. The theme mystery is also used in our thriller which is often used in other films such as Gone Girl which we were inspired by. A theme we included in our thriller was abduction or a missing person depending on how the audience interpret it. This is often used in thriller films such as Taken. We also covered the theme of isolation as it is set in the castle away from anywhere else. Scott is alone in this setting which is a often used thriller convention.
