- linear chronology actions proceed one after another through a forward movement in time usually follows a a central characters motivation -Linear narratives usually have a beginning, middle, and an end. - deadline structure action moves toward a fixed endI.e. something must be accomplished by a specific time, like Speed, My Best Friends Wedding, The Hangover - Parallel plots- implied simultaneity between 2 different plot lines -Nonlinear plot- the flashback is a good example
- retrospective plot tells past from the perspective of the present or future - narrative duration -refers to the length of time an event or action is presented in a plot -narrative frequency -describes how often plot elements are repeatedly shown - narrative space -stories and their characters explore these spaces, contrast them, conquer them, inhabit them, leave them, build on them, and transform them -refers not only to formal shape of space but also their cultural and social significance and connotations
-ideological location- describes the spaces and places inscribed with distinctive social values or ideologies - psychological location- suggests an important correlation between a characters state of mind and the place they inhabits at that moment in the story - symbolic space- is space transformed through spiritual or other abstract means related to the narrative. - first person narrator -has some relation to the story he or she is telling
- narrative frame- describes a context or person positioned outside the story to bracket the films narrative in a way that helps define its terms and meaning - omniscient narration - a version of third person narration in which all elements of the plot are presented from many or all potential angles (knows all) - restricted narration- organizes stories by focusing on one or two characters - reflexive narration- describes movies that call attention to the narrative point of view of the story in order to complicate or subvert their own narrative authority as a consistent perspective on the world
- unreliable narrations- raise at some point in the narrative, crucial questions about the very truth of the story being told (I.e. Fight Club ) - multiple narrations- are found in films that use several different narrative perspectives for a single story or for different stories in a movie that loosely fits these perspectives together. -Significance of narratives-engage viewers in ways that make time meaningful; organize human experience through moving images and sounds in order to describe how individuals and communities change with time
