Genre is a kind of literary or artistic work, a style of expressing yourself in writing and a class of artistic endeavour having a characteristic form or technique. Most people know the genres they like so when picking a film the films are already categorised into the certain categories so you can just pick from the specific category.
Anchor Man: It’s the 1970’s as San Diego anchorman Ron Burgundy is the top dog in network TV, which gives way to his freewheeling sexism with his fraternal like crew. But all that’s about to change when ambitious reporter Veronica Corningstone has just arrived as a new employee at his TV station. The main genre for this film is comedy but a sub genre i have noticed is drama as Veronica battles for his position.
Step Brothers: Brennan Huff and Dale Doback are both about 40 when Brennan’s mom and Dale’s dad marry. The sons still live with the parents so they must now share a room. Initial antipathy threatens the household’s peace and the parents’ relationship. Dad lays down the law: both slackers have a week to find a job. Out of the job search and their love of music comes a pact that leads to friendship but more domestic disarray compounded by the boys sleepwalking. Hovering nearby are Brennan’s successful brother and his lonely wife, the brother wants to help sell his step-father’s house, the wife wants Dale’s attention, and the newlyweds want to retire and sail the seven seas. The main genre for this film is comedy as you watch the friendship form and fallouts happen between the two brothers. The sub genre is family as it shows the hardships and joy that can occur from two separate families coming together.
Shaun doesn’t have a very good day, so he decides to turn his life around by getting his ex to take him back, but he times it for right in the middle of what may be a zombie apocalypse, but for him, it’s an opportunity to show everyone he knows how useful he is by saving them all. All he has to do is survive… And get his ex back
All of these film fall into the same main genre (comedy) as they are all set up to make the viewer laugh, although the sub genres of these three films are all different. They all have a plot designed to make the viewer laugh and also keep them interested in the film.
These photos are all easy to categorise under extreme sports, then also all fit into the same sub genre, skiing. They all contain extreme skiers performing stunts that are not able to be performed by the average skier. Another way that they could fit into the same genre is if all the photos were take in the same resort/area. The three pictures all seem to be set up to exaggerate the hight the skier is jumping or the speed they are travelling using low camera angles and fairly fast shutter speeds. I chose these three photos as although they all do fit into the same category each photographer has captured their image in a sightly different way.
These paintings are all the same genre; Surrealism. through the use of juxtapositions and scaling sometimes usually using real objects but out of their usual surroundings creating a almost dreamlike image. The three pictures i have chosen all have human features and i think that this adds to the surrealist look and makes the paintings look even more surreal. The artist concentrate on creating an un-nerving and un natural thought process for their viewer, but also entice them to look closer at all the elements that are added to the picture creating this complicated piece of art.
