Hi I'm doing postmodern- absolutely love it!

http://www.slideshare.net/anniapple/...ernism-1523222 this slideshare is quite useful. I would recommend planning your essay examples and practitioners beforehand: the questions are always "what is postmodnernism? use examples", described in one way or another.

I, for example have a plan of...

Judith Butler - queer theory, celebration of all genders/ sexualities - madonna: justify my love
Jean Baudrillard- gulf war didn't happen, hyperreality, simulacra, consumerism - The Truman Show
Jean Francois Lyotard- fracturing of metanarratives- The Simpsons
Frederic Jameson- intertextuality - The Simpsons
David Gauntlett - web 2.0 - considering the end of postmodernity.

Good luck

I took a look at the 2011 past paper and its audeince so this year it could be that. Also 2010 was genre so it might go in order of that but not sure tbh.

Question 1A was Real Media Conventions and 1B Was Narrative Theory.
I've predicted that for 1B either Audience Theory or Media Language will come up as they haven't been up for quite a few years.

Hey guys!
I've made a list of all the past concepts from section 1B from past papers:

June 2015 - Narrative
June 2014 - Genre
June 2013 - Representation
Jan 2013 - Narrative
June 2012 - Media Language
Jan 2012 - Representation
June 2011 - Audience
Jan 2011 - Narrative
June 2010 - Genre
Jan 2010 - Representation

Therefore, based on these, I reckon it will be either audience (hasn't come up in 5 years!) or media language (hasn't come up in 4 years)

But tbh it could be any

I agree that it could be Audience or Media lanuguage for 1b because they have each only came up once whereas Representation and Narrative have come up three times and Genre twice.

For 1a however the amount of times each have came up are

Research and Planning: 3
Creativity: 5
Conventions of Real Media texts: 4
Post-production: 2
Digital technology: 2

I feel that any of these could come up with Creativity, however, they may also try to throw people off and
Digital Technology and Post-production may come up together!!

(all just the balance of probablity though)

what is media language? As in how do you answer that question? I feel like it is the most ambiguous of them all. Also this thread is so helpful, thanks

It's probably my least favourite too:/

Media language allows us to use familiar codes and conventions that are generally understood. Basically, it is a way we can communicate easier through media.

In my essay I discuss:
-Roland Barthes codes- semic code+ enigmatic code
-Levi Strauss- Binary opposition
-Todorov- Theory of equilibrium
-Laura Mulvey- male gaze theory
-Richard Dyer- star theory

Really the whole answer should be about how using these terms helped in your production i.e. using binary oppositions could create conventions familiar to my audience ect.

Happy revisings:P

Yeah, media language is how you (the producer) have created meaning using cinematography, editing, sound and mise-en-scene.

I've read past examples of the media language essay answers and the examiner seems to like it when the student acknowledges this, describing how they have created this meaning and obviously relating this to theories!

Crazy to think the exam is a week tomorrow as well
