Within the next three weeks, we will be working on our Hello Project. The project itself is entirely up to us on how we end up creating it, however we have been given a specific guideline to our project: We can only use the word “Hallo” or “Hello”, and it is the only word we’re allowed to use within the production itself. Music is allowed and sound effects from online are allowed to be used, but this is the main requirement that must occur.
Within this session, we spoke about Representation and how Media has been a big notable change of representing. The main point is that “reality” is different for everybody, and how in the end it’s just a context.
Within this session we covered Narratives. There are various different types of narratives that I’ll be talking about within this post and what they include within them, and how they usually go. I’ll also be talking about the different types of Narrative Techniques as well as submitting a story that I’ve created for a Narrative Flow.
Within today’s lesson, we worked on Semiology. Semiology is the study of signs, everything within it must be encoded to contain a direct message with meaning for the audience to be able to decode. The general signs that you have to look out for are colour, clothes, body language, props and location.
