Forward Back 23 April 2014Alex MacDonald Q- Project.6 Genre WebQuest. The key things that these activities have addressed are specific ideas about the meaning and use of the term Genre in media and film. A Genre is not just a list of ingredients or a set of similarities that every film in a genre must share. Genres are flexible and changing combinations of elements. These are recognised and understood by audiences in ways that guide their choices and influence their pleasures. Genres are used by the industry to make decisions about finance, production schedules and advertising strategies.
Forward Back 23 April 2014Alex MacDonald Q- Project.7 Genre WebQuest. Food for thought… We also need to think about the fact that media producers, audiences and critics do not always agree about genre. This is particularly about whether films can be easily classified into one genre rather than another, whether they stay in that same genre for ever, and whether all films in a genre always share all of the same ingredients. Thank you very much for completing this Genre WebQuest. We hope you found it useful. If you have any comments or feedback, please contact
