C.J.R.A MEDIA FOUNDATION PROJECTS. By Rebecca Amuge. REPRESENTATION.
A stereotypical working class teenage mother. That was the first idea however due to a change of circumstances it wasn’t possible. So the story changed to teenager girls who are in college talking a bout typical Issues; boys, makeup and parties. Age group varies from 15 – 19 year olds. The language spoken between the young characters differs from standard English so slang is used instead.
At the beginning of the film clip but in between the first scene after the voice over then we are introduced with the conventional theme song.
For the opening titles it will be the names and title appearing at the bottom of the screen for each featured characters. During Rose's voice over she will be talking about her two best friends Katie & Bella scene changes showing what both characters are like and their names appear at the bottom of the screen. For example when Rose talks about “Bella’s consistently looking in the mirror she really does fancy herself” Her first and last name is featured at the bottom of her scene. A book for Katy, highlighting her personality and at this point her name too is featured at the bottom of the screen.
The girls will then continue to get ready while other names appear. The music will then slowly fade when the girls meet a college and begin to talk about this amazing party they are attending in the coming week.
The opening titles connect the type of genre of the film as it's distinguishing the characters. Then finally at the send of the short film the credits appear again with characters names but also actors official names also the editor and sponsors. The genre is a teen coming of age so how the characters behave at the beginning is important, as they won't behave the same at the end.
