Narrative definition: The contents (events, action) and the way these are structured together form the basis of any narrative. A story can be relayed using any combination of communication i.e. visuals, words, drama etc.
If narrative comes up in the exam, you can choose which product to talk about – think carefully about whether your music video or thriller ‘tells’ a story that can be analysed.
This framework is useful for nailing down the specific moments in your thriller or music video narrative where you can apply the terms and theories.
