Last Minute Mest 1 Revision

Last Minute Mest 1 Revision | Film Industry | Scoop.it
*The VLE has lots of resources to help answer these questions* Be very clear about the exam timings and how you are going to approach the exam. Do not spend too much or too little time on certain questions. Have a clear plan about how you will organise your note taking for Mest 1a – practise analysing texts using your note sheet. Mest 1a: Be prepared for any genre of moving image text. It could be a film trailer, TV advert, website, sitcom etc. So make sure you are aware of the conventions of all the different moving image genres. Mest 1a and b: You must continually use media terms, so revise words from the media glossary. Be confident enough to use concepts such as mise en scene, synergy, hybridity, convergence, context of consumption, demographics…to name but a few Mest 1a and b: Don’t describe or recount. Get to the ‘nitty gritty’ straight away and use the text to support your analysis. Addresses the question directly in every paragraph…always think, ‘why has this text been created in this form?’ ‘What effect will it have on the audience?’ ‘Is it a genre text?’ ‘Why?’ Mest 1b: YOU MUST REFER TO 3 PLATFORMS, equally if possible. You will only get a D if you don’t do this. Mest 1b: Remember that your case study is the film industry, the films you have researched are simply part of your case study and you should use these films to help you address the question. The aim is to show a critical understanding of the film industry not the three or so films you have researched. Mest 1b: Don’t waste words. Don’t write lots of information about your films unless it is completely relevant to the question. There is no need to give lots of background info. Get to the point. Mest 1b (and a): At the start of every paragraph link back to the question and the last paragraph by making a clear statement. For example, for a question about audiences you could start the paragraph like this: ‘The media industry’s concept of audience has changed drastically since the recent rapid advance of new media. Audiences today are more empowered than ever before, they can prosume, watch videos on demand, download films illegally and even demand cinemas to show films in their local cinema…’ ‘Yet, despite this apparent empowerment, conglomerates still dominate the film industry…’ Mest 1b: There is no strict rule about how many films you can refer to, just make sure 95% from the last 3 years and that they are excellent examples for the question. As a rule of thumb, I would write about 2 or 3 films in detail and then perhaps refer to another 6 - 8 which help support or challenge certain points. Remember, you can just mention films in passing; you don’t have to go into depth about every film… Mest 1b: It is not too late to collect more information about the film industry and more films. Try to have lots of examples of films that have advertised in interesting ways, or use celebrity brands, 3D, have interesting narratives, allow audience participation etc… Mest 1b: The conclusion is your last chance to show off. You must directly answer the question and add some new information which supports your point. There is no point merely repeating yourself, add something poignant. Think beyond the question. Maybe make a conclusion about the media industry in general or make a prediction based on your writing… Mest 1b: Compare your examples. Relate back to the question and always consider why the texts have been created like they have – is it down to the institution, audience, socio-political climate, genre, ideology of the group producing the text? Mest 1b: Try to identify which debates fit well with the question – for example the debate about dumbing down fits in well to a lot of questions. Or the debate about illegal downloading and its negative impacts…
