Main Task Research: Narrative

In order for me to pick a distinctive narrative, I had gone through a variety of websites to find out some top tips on how to create an obvious narrative for my documentary. So here are some of the tips I have gathered that inspired me most:

  • Tell a chronological story, but not necessarily in chronological order.
  •  Use shots and sequences to tell a story.
  • Present information when it best serves the story.
  • Enter late, exit early.

In terms of our narrative, myself and Joe want to use a slight build up affect on the way we will be editing our documentary.


  1. Start with story
  2. Story turns sad/exciting
  3. Cliffhanger

Therefore, from this we will aim to attract a different types of audiences so it therefore can appeal to different main audiences creating a universal target audience.
