Abul Hasnat-0921, Reece Perrin-1117, Martyna Sliuziate-1168, Meltem Ozmen-1108, Yasmine Preliminary Task 2013/14

Reece Induction Task Work:

In these 2 weeks of Media classes we have written a narrative, written a script (to portray our narrative), filmed our script and edited it to a finished product.

Reece’s Narrative:

The Protagonist (Male, 20’s) wants a raise from his boss, The Antagonist (Female, 40’s) because he has his second child on the way and needs the money. However she refuses to give it to him as she believes his work is “beyond poor”. The Protagonist believes this is very unfair as he feels he has worked very hard. This leads to an argument in which The Protagonist accuses his boss of being “stingy” and this prompts The Antagonist to call in security and escort him out of the room.

Reece Character Description:                                         

Protagonist, 20’s, He is rational and knows when to hold back. He dresses very smart (to fit his line of work). He speaks in a very casual manner, little bit of slang. His physical appearance is fairly taken care of and slightly scruffy.

Antagonist, 40’s, She is angry and authorotive. She dresses very smart, sutiable for work. She speaks very clearly, commanding and loudly. Her physical appearance is aging slightly, sleek and prepped.

Reece’s Script:                                                                           ( – Camera Shot)

(Employee paces up to Boss’ office) – Long Shot. (He hestitates before knocking on the door) – Close Up of hand.

Boss: Come in! (Employee takes a deep breath and enters)

Boss: Oh. It’s you. I guess you’re here about the erm… the…. – Medium shot of Boss.

Employee: Raise? … Yeah. (He sits on the opposite side of the desk.) – Over the shoulder of Boss.

Boss: OK. I’d like you to tell me why you deserve this raise. – Over the shoulder of Employee

Employee: Right OK… Because I’m a hard worker, I turn up everyday, I work my hardest and with another baby on the way… To be honest I really need the money. – Medium shot of Employee.

Boss: I agree with most of what you said… Apart from the hard working bit. Over the past few months your work has been beyond poor and is far from deserving a raise. So, I can already tell you you’ll not be getting a raise – Over shoulder of Employee. (Employee stands up and paces the room with frustration) – Wide Shot of Employee.

Enployee: You don’t understand how much i need this raise. You clearly havent got a sympathetic bone in your body. – Medium Shot of Employee.

Boss: I beg your pardon! Give me one reason why I shouldn’t fire you now. – Medium shot of Boss.

Employee: Go on then! With your stingy wages it probably wouldn’t make much difference. – Wide shot of Employee.

Boss: That’s the final straw. Security. – Medium shot of Boss. (Securty enters office) – Wide Shot.

Boss: Escort this man outside. – Medium shot of Boss. (Security drag Employee away) – Wide Shot.

Abul Hasnat induction assignment

In our media class we have spent 2 weeks on planing and directing an induction assignment through planning narratives, scripts, camera shots and a story line to produce a 2 minute film


There are going to be two different characters, a teenager called Jim (protagonist) and his childhood friend Bob (antagonist), Jim decides to visit his friend at his house. Jim is a typical teenager who likes to look good for self satisfaction, he is into the latest fashion and trends. He usually likes to have stylish long hair, has an silver ear stud and usually wears a red hood with black faded jeans and white trainers.

Bob is very different to jim, Bob likes to stay formal as he likes to wear plain shirts and bottoms as well as shoes, he is wearing a white shirt with black buttons with black bottoms and black shoes.

Story line

Jim was sitting down on his bed very bored with a frown face  one day, so he decided to visit his best friend Bob. Jim then makes ways to Bobs house, he was taking really slow steps because jim is a very relaxed person who likes to take his time in what he is doing. After a good 20 minutes Jim then arrives at Bob’s door  and knocks on the door. The door then opens,  Jim then walks through the door and into the room. Jim finally meets Bob and sits on the chair opposite bob. They then have their conversation where Bob is angry because Jim did not make time to visit him after Bob had as car crash, this creates conflict as Bob was upset about it, Jim then makes it up to him.

Martyna’s Narrative .

The protagonist is a 18 year old football player named Jake , the antagonist is a 25 year old female football manager . Jake is furious about the fact that his manager did not put him on the team and Is willing to visit his managers office to talk to her about this . Jake then arrives at the managers office and argues as to why he is not on the team and why he has been put on substitute. The manager then resolves the problem by indicating that Jake can actually be the team captain, Jake is surprised and does not believe this , the manager then confirms the statement and Jake finishes of wih a happy and positive thank you.

Martyna’s script –

Manager : “come in”

Jake: “why didn’t you put me on the team”

Manager:” I think you’re more than ready jake , you’re going to be the team captain”

Jake: “What ? team captain?”

Manager : “Yes team captain”

Jake: “Ahh ,thanks”

Character description:

Jake is a young teenage football player who has many goals to achieve in his life. Fulfilled with many aims , he dresses the way that it would not typical indicate his hobby as a football player , but he does wear sporty clothes, he is a healthy , fit young man.

The female manager is a very high standard , and elegant person .She dresses in the way she feels comfortable but she is still able to represent her job role , she holds a high status and high responsibility as being a warm hearted manager that is willing to fulfill her football team’s aims.

Martyna’s Evaluation :

I believe that our preliminary task was created fairly good , As previous research had built up our knowledge on how to use certain prospects , such as equipment , and final cut . We had learnt how to use the equipment and how to set them up to be able to correctly film a movie, this lead to the fact that we had no struggle using the equipment and we had worked well as a group to put everything together and realize any film faults . Practicing with final cut also helped us to use the program  to edit our video.

By doing the preliminary task we have learn how to correctly and confidently use technological equipment , so that we can then be able to know what we are doing , when we actually do our final production . In addition we must also gain more knowledge and ideas from other TV dramas , as this will built up our intelligence of when we actually do our final product . We also learnt how to use camera shots correctly and how to position the equipment well enough to prepare us for our final product.

Meltem’s Character Description:

Antagonist Daughter (16 years old): She is a selfish, unreasonable and disrespectful teenager. She tends to wear dark coloured clothing and heavy make-up as she is insecure about her looks and figure. She also has a northern accent like her mother.

Mother: No you haven’t you’ve hated him from the moment you laid eyes on him, you never gave him a chance. Your father is dead Olivia, it has been 10 years, I know me having a boyfriend may seem like I don’t love your father anymore but I do and I always will but I have to move on I have to carry on with my life. Please respect that.
