Jeopardy and Suspense Speed and motion Action Adventure Conflict and Combat Spectacle

CGI Fighting Fast tempo Special Effects Exotic location Hero and Villain Damsel in distress Explosions Epic High Speed Chases Sound Camera work Threat of injury/death

Spectacle • Special effects are becoming an essential to any modern Action Adventure film • Sometimes hard to spot because the technology is now so good

Types of special effects • Models and miniatures – scaled down realistic representations of buildings or vehicles (e.g.: Star Wars, Harry Potter) • Make-up – transforms actors – scars, blood, alien creatures etc. • Physical Effects – Stunts and pyrotechnics

• Camera Speed – slow or fast motion • CGI – Computer Generated Imagery now makes everything possible (Avatar)

Task Make a list of any Action Adventure films that you know which use the following special effects, provide examples : • Scale models • Make-up • Stunts • CGI

Conflict and Combat • The fist fight – common in early films - now also includes martial arts • Combat can be hand to hand, involve lots of different weapons or mass battles • Fight scenes can be comic in tone with no one being seriously hurt OR realistic portrayals of mass deaths e.g. Gladiator • Which films use light references to violence and which ones are more graphic?

• Speed and Motion – chases, races against time and escapes are common features • Speed is mainly associated with fast moving vehicles (e.g. Speed, Bourne Identity etc.) • This is created by the editing straight cuts every second. • Non-diegetic sound - Fast paced music also adds to create a sense of speed and motion. • Diegetic sound adds sense of urgency (e.g.: wheel spins etc)

• Jeopardy and Suspense – scenes often end on a cliff hanger set around the hero having to escape a threatening situation. • To create suspense the characters need to be someone we can identify with and care about.

Watch • As you watch – make notes on all the key terms we have identified and recapped in today’s lesson that are featured within the clip.
