    To prepare for the second half of the exam, we have been told to create plans for a trailer, opening sequence and a website of our own WBD. Is there anything else we could be asked to design?
    our school paid for some guy that makes the wjec media exams to come in and talk to us, he said it's only likely to be a WBD website or a trailer for it

    Hey guys what things would you put if the question asks you to identify two typical elements of a TV Drama?

    I Would put something along the lines of stereotypical representations of the location (eg the school uniforms in waterloo Road) and then an open narrative with small(ish) plot arcs..

    My teacher says they may ask you to write a script for the opening scene(s) -- but come to think of it, that doesn't test your knowledge of web-based dramas at all. So if they do do that it'll be easy.

    Anyway do you reckon that Scrubs counts as a drama?
    The exam is about drama, which covers all sub-genres and Scrubs fits into the sub-genre of Comedy-Drama. What do you think?

    when it says previously- montage of flashbacks
    opening credits ( characters, theme music, actors names,setting)
    non diegetic music?
