    Outcome 2 

    On completion of this unit the student should be able to draw on ideas and/or arguments suggested by a chosen Context to create written texts for a specified audience and purpose; and to discuss and analyse in writing their decisions about form, purpose, language, audience and context. 

    To achieve this outcome the student will draw on knowledge and related skills outlined in area of study 2. 

    Key knowledge
    This knowledge includes:
    the relationship between purpose, form, language and audience in a range of print, non-print and multimodal text types, with close attention to authors’ choices of specific structures and features; for example, style, images, design, point of view, tone and register;
    the ideas and/or arguments relevant to the chosen Context, including an understanding of the ideas and arguments presented in selected text/s;
    strategies for creating, reviewing and editing;
    metalanguage to discuss and analyse their own and others’ creative choices;
    the conventions of spelling, punctuation and syntax of Standard Australian English.
    Key skills
    These skills include the ability to:
    analyse the relationship between purpose, form and audience in a range of text types, with close attention to authors’ choices of structures and features;
    select and shape information, ideas and argument appropriate to the chosen form, audience, purpose and context;
    draw on ideas and/or arguments presented in selected text/s;
    use appropriate strategies to review and edit texts for fluency and coherence;
    use appropriate metalanguage to discuss and analyse their own and others’ authorial choices;
    use the conventions of spelling, punctuation and syntax of Standard Australian English.

    Exploring the Context through the lens of 'One Night the Moon'
    Every text is created for a purpose and an audience. Understanding the connection between purpose (Why am I writing?), audience (Who am I writing for?), context (What factors are influencing my writing?) and form (What type of text will I write?) is a crucial part of Section B.
    ...
    The relationship between landscape and memory
    Landscape is never neutral. In real life, people bring their own knowledge, experience and emotions to their environment to interpret the world they live in. In film, the director creates a world and invites the viewer to enter and to make it real in their own imagination.

    Perception
    We can never understand another's perception of a landscape until we experience it ourselves..........
    Two people can never experience a landscape in exactly the same way..........
    We can only be truly objective when viewing landscape a distance........
    To understand someone is to understand where they come from.........
    Our subjectivity is what limits us from experiencing the external world to the fullest..........
    Our perception of the landscape is constantly changing........
    A change in the natural world leads us to feel a sense of loss and isolation.......

    Belonging is a powerful word. Maybe one of the most powerful words there is. It taps into something very deep within us - the yearning to be part of something larger than ourselves, to be accepted and loved by others with all of our gifts and limitations. Jean Vanier says that belonging does for human beings what soil does for plants: it nurtures us, and enables us to grow and to blossom.
    The desire to belong is universal. Yet despite what we know about the importance of belonging, too many people experience its opposite: loneliness and isolation. For these individuals, "belonging" remains a tragically elusive goal. Isolation is pervasive among other groups as well: the elderly, immigrants and refugees, many young people...and just about anyone who is perceived as "different".
    Enduring the landscape
    For many people their birth into a particular family and culture is so intrinsic to their identity that the idea of choosing another life in a radically different world is never even contemplated. For others, there can be the awareness that although life is very difficult, the landscape they inherit becomes their destiny. In Perkin's film, accepting the life the landscape offers you can give certainty and security to your identity.
    The landscape calls up a powerful response from those who inhabit it. The landscape is elemental – it damages and consumes the people and physical toughness is needed to survive.

    Exploring the Context through the lens of 'One Night the Moon'
    ToolsEvery text is created for a purpose and an audience. Understanding the connection between purpose (Why am I writing?), audience (Who am I writing for?), context (What factors are influencing my writing?) and form (What type of Film Production: Scene Analysis
    A. Setting
    inside
    text will I write?) is a crucial part of Section B.
    The landscape, and the way we understand and relate to it, is inextricably linked to the way we understand and act in the world.
    We should consider how Rachel Perkins in 'One Night the Moon':
    Explores the role of place in shaping the way a character feels about of sees the world.
    Portrays the aesthetics of the landscape: its beauty, bleakness
    or outside?
    features
    grandeur. (Sometimes setting of the outward world reflects an inner emotional states).
    Uses setting as a contrasting device. Characters, or periods in a character’s life, are often contrasted with where they are: city or country; land or sea; earth or air; mountain or coast; north or south; developed or undeveloped.
    Refers to characters’ need to relate to, or make some mark on the landscape, to name it, or to map it.
    Uses
    the landscape
    colours
    who
    as a metaphor for how characters are feeling.
    Describing The Imaginative Landscape
    When we think of a landscape, we not only think of its physical characteristics, but also of how it involves
    the people insenses: sight, sound, taste, smell and touch. Think about how MacLeod appeals to the sequence?
    What
    following senses in his stories, and why.
    Sight: What
    are they wearing?
    Time – day/night?
    B. Camera
    shot type - close ups, long shots, mid shots, wide shots, extreme long shots
    the physical and extreme close-ups
    camera movement - track, tilt, pan, dolly, still, hand-held effect
    angle – point
    aesthetic qualities of view shots, high, low, side
    C. Editing
    length of shots
    transitions – cuts, fades, dissolve, wipe
    dialogue matching vision (e.g. when
    the soundisland landscape?
    Sound: Aurally, what is going on? Is it important
    for the next scene cutsauthor’s purpose?
    Smell: What smells are described or implied
    in before the current scenelandscape of a scene?
    Touch: Do any of the characters physically touch the landscape?
    Perkins explores a range of ideas associated with the Context The Imaginative Landscape, including:
    Different ways of responding to, and understanding, the landscape
    The relationship between landscape and memory
    The relationship between identity and the landscape
    The physical and aesthetic qualities of the landscape
    How the landscape impacts on humans
    How humans impact on the landscape
    The relationship between landscape and memory

    D. Sound
    how does sound help our understanding
    never neutral. In real life, people bring their own knowledge, experience and affect our emotions?
    music
    dialogue
    silence
    E. Actors/characters
    age
    size
    race
    gender
    action – what are
    emotions to their environment to interpret the world they doing?
    F. Lighting
    colour
    brightness
    shadow
    natural or artificial?
