This study day for GCSE students is primarily designed to prepare for OCR’s external assessment topic Moving Image option. However, this detailed look at the action adventure genre and its appeal to audiences will also be useful for AQA (Assignment 1: Moving Image option) and WJEC (Textual Investigation 1 Genre) controlled assessment units. Through a clip-rich and interactive presentation, students will explore a variety of texts that show the genre’s development and range and hybridity. In addition to generic conventions, we shall explore film language, narrative features, character types, representations and typical issues. There will be a relevant film screening in the afternoon.
