    Hey Monkey!

    I did a Media Studies piece on film openings, and it is now it is gonna be opened for my english media c/w aswell. I used this as the 2nd half of my introduction:

    It is essential that a link is created between an audience and some aspect of a story early on in a film so that a viewer does not lose interest. This ‘link’ is often established in the first five minutes, to do so moviemakers often focus on one or two of the following:

    · Establishing character(s)
    · Establishing an important location
    · Establishing a genre
    · Establishing a mood or atmosphere
    · Starting the narrative
    · Grabbing the audiences attention (often in an action sequence)
    · Setting up a mystery

    Trying and look at what the two films you have watched are trying to do and why (linking back to what the audience and age/sex market for that group would want to see). Hope it helps..
