TUESDAY 19TH JANUARY:
Genre and how it is defined through N.I.C.S (Narrative, Iconography, Characters and Setting)
ANALYSING GENRE WITHIN TEXTS:
N.I.C.S- Use to define genre
I- Iconography (Visual elements which establish the genre)
Action/spy film- silhouettes, gun barrel (iconography which establishes the genre). Features Sean Connery-most known for James Bond.
Sci-fi film, green colour scheme, consistent colour scheme throughout which gives off a skin/ alien effect on the audience.
The back up plan
Chick flick- bright colours. Hybrid: Romantic-Comedy (Rom-Com). Romance iconography- babies on TV. Comedy iconography- Flasher. This film is clearly targeted towards a female audience- elegant typography, animation, colour scheme.
This means war
Rom-Com: references spy film. Uses intertextuality to reference a James Bond film.
