Game Console Adverts Textual Analysis

So as you all probably know, November brings the release of not one but two new consoles! Both PS4 and X-Box One are eagerly anticipated in the gaming market and for both Year 12 and 13 the adverts below should be of great interest. For Year 13 as you are studying the Games Industry this is obviously relevent and for Year 12 and any MS1 resit students these adverts could be excellent examples to discuss in your exam.

Watch the videos and along with the usual analysis aspects such as visual, audio and technical codes, I would like you all to consider how the audiences are targeted and appealed to in each advert.

X-BOX ONE- INVITATION



PS4- GREATNESS AWAITS
 

PS4- PERFECT DAY

Year 12 Narrative Tasks

Introduction to Narrative

Task 1- Using stock images construct a photostory or a digital storyboard of your day so far.
Then consider:
  • What aspects of the narrative have you selected and why?
  • What have you selected and why?
  • Whether your 'story' is linear or moves about in time.
  • What camera shots you have used and their effect.

Year 13 Resits

Message for all Year 13 pupils who have chosen to resit AS coursework and/or exam. T1 has been booked every Tuesday lesson 2 and my time has been protected so that we can meet weekly. It is very important that you attend  although you may not always be kept for the hour, you will need to collect work and hand in work regularly.

Tomorrow (22nd October) we will be analysing the Exam report looking at BOTH MS1 & MS2 so please ensure you attend.

Thanks, Mrs McCarthy
