Diary log-week 6

During this week I researched upon relevant narrative theories and the psychology of colour. These are both prominent topics within the creation of a short film as a narrative or use of colour can present varying different ideologies and themes. Through researching the different psychological connotations colour can have I was influenced to decide to utilise colour correction in the editing process of my final product. By visualising a predominant colour scheme through my product I was convinced I

would be able to present certain ideologies and themes orienting the genre of my product. This essential research into colours

allowed me to make this choice.

I then researched the prominent narrative theories that exist. I created an amalgamation of these with a summary of their primary features on a prezi. By solidifying my knowledge on these theories I was aware which narrative I wanted to follow and what effect I wanted upon my audience. I concluded that my short film was majorly going to follow Todorov’s narrative theory with a surprise break of convention at the end of its runtime to shock the audience with an

unexpected narrative twist.

I then went further to narrow down my research into the desired genre of my short film. This was Science Fiction and for my product to correlate with this I needed to explore its popular conventions and how they’re utilised. Upon identifying many conventions within the genre I was able to identify how they could be incorporated into my product or why they would be disregarded if they were not relevant.
