This afternoon, we will be looking at the Radio Drama you studied yesterday, and discussing your responses to that media work. After our discussion, some of you may wish to edit your paragraphs in your work time toward the end of the period, and many of you will wan to carry on to your second blog post based on the short film we are studying today.
Your second blog post:
Reviewing the film Inside that you have been given, come up with a list of ways in which the director is manipulating us as the audience. This story works so well because of what we don’t know, but does the director ‘cheat’ by not telling the story ‘properly’ to keep his secret? Find as much support as you can for what you believe to be the case. Discuss and clarify the ideas in this film with a partner to figure out as many ways as possible (thinking of visual, auditory, character and other traits) that the director creates the message through changing what we expect.
As with the last post, you should be writing in proper paragraph format, with SPECIFIC examples.
If you need to access this film from home, it is on YouTube. Search “Inside Short Film”
