Introduction

Teenage Drama Essay The teenage drama I have chosen to analysis is "One Tree Hill". The drama is based on one main character who feels out of place at school. The opening to the drama highlights how out of place the character feels through the angle, position and type of shots from the camera. However the camera also shows the main characters links with other people and their feelings towards him.

The next image changes back to the bridge a "Lucas" dribbling a basketball again showing how out of place he feels. As each character is introduced gold writing appears next to their face, identifying them so the audience know who they are. Furthermore, all of the characters are introduced in the order of importance we know this by the number of times they are shown in the o/s.
