Title Sequence idea
Our title sequence idea is to create a yearbook which is opened by all the conventional characters that are seen in teen comedy dramas, for example 'the jock', 'the elite', 'the freak' and 'the nerds'. The title sequence will show all of these characters opening the yearbook and showing the audience their school photos whilst also showing pages such as prom day and graduation day. When creating the title sequence we need to make sure that it is very conventional, this is so it looks as realistic as possible, without the right costume and props the title sequence will not be as effective. When creating the sequence it is crucial for us to add in bright bold colours throughout the yearbook so the audience are aware that it is a high school film.

'The Elite' scene
'The Elite' yearbook photographs and recordings are expected to mirror their identities as being somewhat shallow, sure and self fixated. Bronte guided me to play with my hair then look into the camera with an impartial outward appearance, both myself and Jacob complete our recordings with a clear outward appearance this was purposeful as we are both the primary characters inside of our social gathering. Bronte had then coordinated Ella to play with her pig tail and grin at the camera this mirrors her ditsy identity and depicts her as the bimbo of the gathering which is significant as she is blonde and this is a generalisation that blondes convey. Ellie makes a gesture of blowing a kiss into the camera and grins this recommends her character is flirty and wanton which is the thing that Bronte being the director wanted to get crosswise over while guiding her. None of the activities of each of the Elite group are suggestive that they are knowledgeable or great individuals rather they have been spoken to as shallow, boys orientated(due to them taking pride in their appearances with a full face of cosmetics and Ellie's activities inside of the video) and unapproachable. This is an extremely commonplace representation of Popular young ladies inside of secondary school dramatisations. Besides I think it is clear from the yearbook recordings and photos that these are your cliché mainstream faction of teenage girls that you would hope to discover in a secondary school dramatisation film, all of our ideas from this specific gathering was taken by films clueless and mean girls.
