Developing My Treatment

Task: Having learnt more about narrative and considered your own idea, create a short narrative of the music video you would like to make. Call this post 'My Treatment'.

Task 2: Share your idea with your group and then select the favoured idea amoungst you all. Add this treatment to your post and state why it was chosen. Call the post 'Group Treatment'.

Task 3: Present your idea to the class. Put your narrative on the web/ note down audience feedback in class and discuss alterations you will make to your narrative due to this feedback - this is essential as all audience feedback contributes to how you will write your exam question (Section A: Q1a and b) and your evaluation question on audience - SO EVERY STEP OF THE WAY GET AND EVALUATE AUDIENCE FEEDBACK. Call this post 'Treatment Feedback From Audience'

Task 4: Post the alterations to your treatment and call this post "My Final Treatment'.

Task 5: Reminder - always add posts stating group meetings you have had, add photos or scan the lists you have written of things to do or notes taken. This will bring extra marks as I have to grade you as to how you contributed to the group work.

From Queen Elizabeth School's 'A' grade Student 
"Narrative:  The scene begins with a shot of a paint bucket being put down with the name/logo of our band on the front, the shot then zooms out slightly to show feet walking away, wearing high heels. We then cut to a shot of a radio being put down on a table and pressing play, which is when the music starts. There will then be shots of us painting the walls of the house and possibly lip syncing along. A man enters in a suit and sits down reading the paper, perhaps with a cup of tea. He minds his own business until he glances over and does a double take, notices that the girls are quite dressed up and acting quite suggestively (or so he thinks). Stylistically the shots from his POV will be soft focus, focus pulls- creating a dream like, fantasy quality- playing on the idea of a male fantasy. He begins to be a bit hypnotised by the band and goes to touch them, but as he reaches out, he gets a shock and turns his hand over to see red paint dripping down- he is literally caught red handed. In his confusion and fluster he dirties his clothes and the more excited he gets the more paint appears on him. The band circles him and begins tugging at his clothing, he notices how messy he looks and begins to take it off, spurred by the flirtatiousness of the band. Eventually he ends up in just his pants and socks, and the band cheekily run off with his clothes (he is still oblivious at this point). The girls have left the door open and a painter/decorator (manly, gruff, builder type) walks in, sees the man and looks confused. Through this we are subverting the idea of ‘stripper’ objectifying the man instead."
