Cross Media Study

For my section B, I have chosen movies, I have chosen is a 2001 British-American fantasy film Harry potter, a 2012 American science fiction adventure film The Hunger Games and a 2016 American science fiction action film the 5th Wave. These three movies depict some category of similarities and differences.

An example of similarities that they all have is that they all based on the novel. By them all having novels out first it permits them all to indoor see their media text to a greater audience as people who have already read and are dedicated to the novel will want to watch the movie alongside with people who may not read but just want to view the movie due to the hype of it.  Additional likeness they share is the target audience varies in age these movies are designed to target both the youth around the ages of 12 and also have a
secondary audiences of 30 year and up.

To progress and expand my section B, I plan on including a sketch of synergy, this is the way in which numerous foundations of a media corporation act together to indorse related products across different media. An example of this is the Hunger Games to promote its linked products, as it offers CD, DVD and Games.

 

 

Harry Potter alongside with all the other movies I chose use Todorov narrative pattern witch consist of  starting off the movie in an equilibrium state, in terms of the movie Harry potter this wold apply to the scene where Harry the main character is seen in his  ever day life with s family then  followed by disruption this would be when Harry then  of some sort, then recognition repair and then lastly restoration.

Harry Potter represents its locations and people as mystical, with large doses of fantasy with the use wizards, castle, wands and magical beings the movie gives the audience sense of escapism from the audience’s everyday life. Harry Potter is very unique as it shows both element of reality and fantasy in the movie, an example of this would be the fact that Harry attends a wizarding academy in Scotland adding both elements of reality and fantasy even having their own language using such words as “muggles”.

Harry Potter uses stereotypical ideas and looks for wizards such as old and grey men, long beards, long clocks and big hats these stereotypical ideas and looks that are given to the wizards are very fitting and gives the audience sense of familiarity and understanding of who and what the characters are through mise en scene.

 

The Hunger Games represents its locations a people as strong, dystopian and a dog eat dog world. With the use of action codes and fearless female lead character.

5th Wave represents its locations and people as a very ordinary and basic at first and then very dramatic and hectic with the use of aliens, explosives and action codes.
