Task Description
Students are to watch the film ‘Scary Movie 3’ and explain the main three elements of parody used in recreating ‘The Ring’ scenes. Students are to focus primarily on ‘The Ring’ scenes and will need to pick out evidence from the scenes to compare and analyse. Students need to consider the film’s purpose, context and audience.Parody: Refers to a style which deliberately seeks to ridicule another style. This may involve, in less talented parody, simply offering up a very silly version of the original. In more skillful parodies, the writer imitates the original very well, pushing it beyond its limits and making it ridiculous. To achieve this second form of parody, the writer has to be able to compose as well as the original. The effect of parody obviously depends upon the reader’s being familiar with the original.Elements of Parody include:Exaggeration: Taking an aspect of the original, serious version and pushing it to the extreme.Inversion: Involves flipping the terms in an accepted system of values–good becomes bad, bad becomes good.Trivialisation: Consists of taking a serious topic and treating it as if it is silly or insignificant.Format: Written, oral and/or multimodal.Word Count: 1,000 words or 8 minutes maximum.Weighting: 25%
