    • Answer to student question on weekend:
      • You are looking at the story convention of the scene. Therefore the focus narrative (the joke in a sitcom) of the scene. You are looking at the beginning, middle and end of the joke. How do they set up the joke, set the tension in the joke and the conclusion of the joke (also known as the 3 act structure). You will be looking at what is said by the actors, and the order and the visual cues that support the narrative of the convention. The last part of the question is about the cultural appropriateness and the Australian Classification. Why is the episode rated as a G, PG, M, MA, MA+ and why? This could be due to something else in the episode, also if your scene is a stand-alone, what would be the rating determined by the Australian Classification. Also, refer to the Week 5 lesson 02 document (Arts Law Centre of Australia)
