    Does anyone taking the media exam on Tuesday have any family scifi films to use as examples and also what are your ideas for a film plot??
    Divergent, The Hunger Games, Transformers are some examples and go for the fil. which you can easily work with. I'm using the last day and wtiting about an Apocolypse.

    I got A* in my coursework but mine has also been sent off for moderation so who knows what'll happen. Basically, you need a storyline, a few characters and a few locations. Maybe a tag line too. Most of that is easier once you have a stroyline. Then design a storyboard for the trailer or the beginning of the film. Design a poster and design a web page as any of these could be an option for question 4. For question 3 think about how your film hits the target audience and how you could market and merchandise you're film, eg. dolls, tops etc

    My storyline is where there is your stereotypical family (mum, dad, son and daughter) and one night the son dreams of aliens coming to life, he wakes up the next morning and his dream comes true with aliens coming to earth but, the disruption being the aliens thinking that adults are a threat unlike children so the son and daughter have to tell the aliens that adults are not a threat so they go up to space with an alien which they've became friends with to tell the "boss alien" to stop attacking the adults...

    Well your main focus now should be on key media terminology which you can chuck in to your answers. Briefly research Todorov's and Propps theories as well as Uses and Gratifications theory and then research as much as you can about Sci-fi and make sure you have two examples at the ready. Its just over a day till the exam but you can do it!!
    But honestly picking media is my biggest regret so lets just pray that they're a liiiiittttllee bit generous this year.
    Good luck! X

    Good luck! I'm honestly not prepared for this exam. I know most of the theories but I have no idea on how to apply them because... guess what! I haven't been watching Sci-Fi films . I am really hoping that an audience question, maybe marketing and to design a website or a DVD cover will come up. Anything else then I am dead.

    Also: Does anyone know what grade I will get if i'm sitting on an A on my coursework if I get a C in the exam or even a D

    Make sure you read about some of the following theories:
    - Uses and Gratifications (Blumer and Katz)
    - Propp's theory in relation to character roles
    -Barthes// enigma, action code, referential code
    -Todorov's Theory
    - Hyperdermic Needle Theory

    And try to apply the ones which are the most compatible with your answer.

    You are very similar to me, I don't actually like science fiction films but as long as you have at the ready to talk about you'll be okay. Coursework wise, again, my teacher marked it as an A/B but it had to be sent off so god knows what's going to happen,but because coursework is 60% and if you're on an A, I would guess a D may just be good enough for you to pass

    All the best

    I got a B in my coursework which really disappointed me. It was, however a high B, if I get an A in my exam do you think could achieve a A overall?

    My teacher said I needed 35/60 marks on the exam to get an A, so what does that mean I got on my coursework?

    I never annotated mine and if you looked at practice examples were someone had to draw a Poster or a DVD cover it wasn't annotated either. So I wouldn't worry

    I kinda did, I had the idea of having having the actors photo on the website with their name to make it easier for children to understand who's in the film because they would find it easier to tell by pictures
