A LEVEL RESULTS

EXAM RESULTS

Film Studies students at Charters school will be able to analyse and appreciate the craft involved in story telling through the visual medium. They will be able to decode implicit and explicit messages, engaging critically with a wide range of films across the major genres, developing and sustaining personal responses through close textual analysis.  They will also be encouraged to appreciate the aesthetic artistry involved in the production of films so that that they can create their own, emulating specific styles and applying, or challenging conventions of a genre, evident in their own decision-making. They will be encouraged to explore film theory, research industrial context and work with media professionals to gain experience and insight concerning a career in the film industry.

This means:

  • They will watch a variety of films from different cultural perspectives, including those from the 1930’s to present day.
  • They will develop an analytical approach to texts, decoding media language.
  • They will apply film theory and use specialist terminology in their own explanations.
  • They will research and examine industrial context to fully understand the influence on production of films
  • They will appreciate the artistry in the construction of films and develop their own production skills.
  • They will take advantage of opportunities to work with media professionals.
