From movies to TV series, audiovisual fictions are part of our media world. They convey representations that nourish the creation of stereotypes and our way of seeing the world. This module focuses on the deconstruction and analysis of representations in fiction, as well as on the technical aspects that contribute to the construction of these representations.
The section on media analysis consists of two units devoted to basic concepts related to mechanisms of representation (the other, the influence of the audience) and three units edicated to specific representations: youth, identifying stereotypes and the role of violence.
The section on media production provides information on the main technical aspects of audiovisual production: the script, the audiovisual language, the characters, the soundtrack and editing.
