i’ve never written a book before and if i was going to i think it would most likely be a work of fiction rather than a media handbook so i thought i’d take a look at a few already written by professionals and the chapters they have chosen to cover.
a clockwork orange
an erotics of violence: masculinity and (homo)sexuality
stanley kubrick and the art cinema
music in a clockwork orange
developing the film
a long hard look at psycho
each of the three books we looked at have a introduction and a bibliography so we definitely need to include these in our book
possible other chapters:
- film development
key concepts to look at in relation to our short film
- audience: who the audience might be and how might they read the documentary.
reality tv fans. 24- yrs? working class people.
- genre: what sub-genre of documentary is it and how successfully it use the conventions of that sub genre, if it mixes conventions (hybridity)
participatory and observational
taxi drivers, all men, race? all over 40? we also steered the documentary in a certain direction through the questions asked rather than letting the drivers just talk about what they wanted to.
- other: if it met the brief or not, how/why?
