Genre research: drama

During the beginning of the school year, I was assigned a genre to research: drama. I worked in a group to deconstruct the elements of the genre. In the presentation above, you're able to see what we'd found. Drama is such a broad and popular genre. We researched the common camera angles, shots, and movement used to differentiate the genre from other genres such as action, romance, horror, and thriller etc. Further into the presentation, we switched our focus to the mis en scene and sounds of drama. We even provided a couple of film examples. Towards the end of the presentation we were able to add in our own personal thoughts on the genre's elements. An element that appealed to me in the genre would have to be the use of sounds. Personally, I love how in drama films, viewers are able to feel a character’s emotion through its soundtrack.
