I'm doing mine now, due tomorrow..

We also got Run Lola Run as our text, some people did The Matrix, The Lake House, The Mask and other movies. I'm doing "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds", a song by The Beatles, the video is from the movie Yellow Submarine. Decided to be a bit different :)

Quite a few techniques that link back into Run Lola Run.

'Requiem for a beast' by Matt Ottley.

its a picture book and it can be used for both distinctive voices and distinctively visual

two days late but Wonderwall by Oasis was good for me in my half-yearly exam. Some lyrics, as well as symbols in the film clip.

HEY PEOPLE.....
Does anyone know how on earth Sliding Doors relates to Shoe-Horn Sonata???

I would like to know if it relates through DISTINCTIVELY VISUAL or does it relate through FATE AND DESTINY..... even if you can simply tell me this please :)

Please tell me if you know it would be very much appreciated...it may get me a little more interested..lol :)

THANKS BORED OF STUDY MATES

they dont hate to be particularly closely related - sometimes texts which are really different work well together.
i do advanced but my friends do standard so here are my suggestions:

think really broad --> music videos are really good.
"Nothing Compares 2 U" (though it is very simplistic, takes a lot of effort to write about). Sinead O'Connor
"Space Oddity". David Bowie
"Candyman" Christina Aguilera
"I Don't Like It" Pauline Pantsdown
watch Rage at midnight on the weekend - there are some really weird videos that would have a lot to write about

Picture books by Shawn Tan. particularly
"The Red Tree",
"The Rabbits",
"The Arrival".
or "A Monster Wrote Me A Letter" (also distinctive voices) I don't remember who wrote that.

Movies/TV: anything with twins (or crossdressers) in it.
Labyrinth (movie).
Even Sesame Street could be good.
And I hate to say it: hannah montana

Even YouTube videos. There is a big push for ultra-contemporary/interactive texts (a teacher suggested that I use Facebook as a text for belonging, wikipedia is prescribed in Mod C). Think flash freeze or something similar.

Comic strips, cartoons (pokemon!!) etc could work well too.

If you're really daring, video games. but that could be a bit risky.
