Debbie Daniels on “Engaging an audience - theories”

Sutton Coldfield Movie Makers member Debbie Daniels gave us a very interesting presentation on Roland Barthes’ ideas of narrative codes including  “Action Codes” and “Enigma Codes”.  She illustrated these using examples from commercial cinema and our own productions.  During the second half of the evening we were invited to plan a trailer for our film “It Won’t Take A Minute” taking six shots from a selection of about 30 shots that she provided us with.

After Debbie’s presentation Jack Reid presented Mike Hussey with a bag of goodies for his grandson Henry whose films some of us had seen at the “It Won’t Take a Minute” wrap party.
