Document Content and Description Below

Genre and narrative are the main influences on representation.’ Discuss how valid this view is in relation to examples from one British film and one US film you have studied. Assessment Objective... s AO1: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of elements of film. 15 marks AO2: Apply knowledge and understanding of elements of film to analyse film (strand 1a) including thorough use of critical approaches (strand 1c), to evaluate the significance of critical approaches (strand 2). 20 marks Indicative Content Material listed below demonstrates how candidates might approach the question. It is a description of possible content only. It is not prescriptive, nor is it exclusive; examiners must be careful to reward original but well-focused answers. Candidates must reference two films; one British film and one US film. The question is deliberately broad but it is expected that learners, particularly in the higher mark bands, will discuss the ways in which films adhere to and subvert genre and narrative conventions. There may also be some recognition of the differences between stock characters, which tend to be seen in mainstream Hollywood films, and the more ambiguous heroes that populate some aspects of British cinema. Candidates will be expected to discuss how representation in their chosen films has been shaped by genre tropes and ways in which their films may attempt to challenge this. There should also be some discussion of structuralism, in relation to narrative, and the ways in which their films adhere to or subvert established narrative conventions. Candidates should refer to specific examples from the two chosen films in some detail. Additional Guidance Refer to the generic marking grid for Questions 1 and 2.H410/02 Practice Mark Scheme December 2018 4 2* ‘The future of film relies solely on digital film production and exhibition’. Discuss how valid this view is in relation to examples from one British film and one US film you have studied. Assessment Objectives AO1: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of elements of film. 15 marks AO2: Apply knowledge and understanding of elements of film to analyse film (strand 1a) including thorough use of critical approaches (strand 1c), to evaluate the significance of critical approaches (strand 2). 20 marks Indicative Content Material listed below demonstrates how candidates might approach the question. It is a description of possible content only. It is not prescriptive, nor is it exclusive; examiners must be careful to reward original but well-focused answers. Candidates must reference two films; one British film and one US film. The question requires candidates to critically discuss the impact of digital in film. Candidates are likely to assess the use of digital production and / or exhibition and the impact that this has had on both US and UK cinema. Candidates will demonstrate knowledge and understanding of how technology has affected film production and exhibition and there may be some references to the impact of CGI in Hollywood and the impact of digital cameras and distribution in lowering costs for UK productions. There should also be some discussion of IMAX and 3-D formats, particularly in relation to US cinema. There may also be some discussion of streaming platforms, like Netflix and the BFI Player, and how these have allowed films to reach new audiences. There may also be some consideration of the new possibilities for cinema. Candidates may also reject this idea by looking at examples where cinema has not been reliant on digital technology, such as the continued use of 35/65/70mm film stock, but there should be an acknowledgement that digital technology has impacted both the US and UK film industry in one way or another. Candidates should construct a coherent answer that reflects an overall understanding of the significance of digital in film. Candidates may refer to specific examples from the two films in some detail and make reference to the significance of digital to both production and exhibition. Candidates will refer to specific scenes and how they reflect the use of technology, such as the use of CGI. Candidates will also consider how visual effects are used, including the way that they are designed to engage the spectator and create an emotional response.
