Trailer notes Star Wars III:
Media Language/ Mise en Scene The trailer opens with the LucasFilmlogo and George Lucas is known for directing other ‘Star Wars ‘ and well known movies such as ‘Indiana Jones’.The scene then opens with “A long time ago in a galaxy far away” which is conventional within all trailers in the saga. Another well known film by George Lucas is Indiana Jones There are many long shots of different planets which help establish the setting and emphasise the fact it is a sci-fi film. The predominant moon in the first screen shot highlights the space and astro element. Main emphasis on settings The use of special effects as well as high tech weapons, spaceships andadvanced technologies also highlight the genre.Other conventions that are noticeable are the alien-like creatures, robots, fantasy planets and unique architecture.
Media Language/ Mise en Scene Throughout the trailer the colour black is predominant through clothes, environment and fades this could be to create a space like atmosphere. Long cloak like clothing enhances the fantasy element Extreme long shot of army boarding the spacecraft emphasises the sci-fi genre and establishes the war setting. Synergy is used in the typography which the font which is associated with the “Star Wars” films. The red colour could also be associated with danger which is a contrast to the blue font used another trailer for the series of flims. Click picture for “Episode IV “ trailer
Sound The non diagetic orchestral music builds up suspenseand the voice over creates a storybook narrative.The ‘racing’ sounds of fast crafts and explosions develop an action adventure element to the genre.Robot noises and alien languages such as the ‘Wookiee call’ emphasises the fact it is a Sci- Fi film. Voice over begins the story with “For over 1000 generations the jedi knights were the guardians of peace and justice in the republic before the dark times and the empire…” this foreboding message makes audience question what dark times and empire but for those who had seen the other previous movies this would create excitement as to how the story would pan out in the final episode.
Ideologies/Media values Ideologies that could be developed from this film are that men are seen as protectors and destroyers because all heroes in the trailer (Jedis) are male and evil characters (Sith) are also male. An idea that those who become obsessed with power are easily influenced by evil could be interpreted as well. Audience The main audience would be those interested in space and the universe. Trailer also promises that by watching the film the saga will be concluded ‘explosively’ so fans would be attracted. Being a blockbuster it has a mainstream appeal to the masses. Special effects such as space races and special weapons would also attract younger children who would become fascinated and most likely males.
