Transcript of Lets talk talk evaluation

  1. 1. Captions: At the beginning of the documentary, we have included a caption that informs the audience of the interviewees name and occupation. This is good as it then conforms to the codes and conventions of a documentary. Non-diagetic sound: Throughout the documentary, we added music, the music we have included is relevant to the subject matter and this conforms to the codes and conventions of a documentary.

There is a very unfocused viewpoint due to the interviewee not seeming very interested in answering the questions. the interviewee says very irrelevant things which doesn't interest the audience and makes the documentary view point confusing. The Mise en scene throughout the documentary could be more relevant in order to look more professional and engage the audience. There is also no clear narrative structure throughout and it is very basic
