Writing essays for action-adventure films

View the film four times.

After making your notes as each area of film do the following:

  • Briefly explain WHAT is there in the scene and how it includes action-adventure conventions including locations. (If you can work out the director’s purpose for constructing the scene state it now.)
  • Give examples from each aspect of film language on HOW THE FILM LANGUAGE creates meaning and fits or subverts conventions of the film’s genre.
  • Conclude with an evaluation WHY the film language is used/there and its impact on the viewer.

When using theory you can apply it directly to your points when discussing conventions and their representation in the scenes/films.
