INTRODUCTION

 
This site should help you in revising for your AS level Media Studies exam on Textual Analysis for Action/Adventure movies, which makes up a half of the exam that takes place in January alongside Celebrities and Tabloid press.

= There are five sections of action/adventure movies that you should analyse in the exam, which if you do it right, would give you top marks in your exam.

These are:
- Camera Angle, Shot, Movement and Position
- Editing
- Sound
- Special Effects or Graphics
- Mise-en-scene

Camera Angles, Shots, Movements and Position should be analysed first as there is a lot to say about them.

Then you go on to analyse the editing of the film at the same time.

Also monitor any sounds and special effects that happen and what they do to emphasise these, if there is anything that emphasises it.

Finally, you need to analyse Mise-en-scene as well, which is basically anything you see in the movie. This could be anything you notice in the movie, which makes the movie more or even less realistic or how the character is represented by the way he looks.

Click any of the links on the left to find out more information about these sections.
