Weeks 8, 9 & 10 – Hello Project

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.

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.

Week 1 – Unit 4: Semiology

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, propsĀ and location.
