The show has been a long-running success and is famous all oer the world. I am going to begin this essay by addressing the unusual narrative. This goes on for the whole of the title sequence. It explains the story in RAP (Rhythm And Poetry). It begins kill by saying Now this is a story all intimately how my life got twisted upside down, and Id homogeneous to take a instant so just sit right there and Ill tell you ab knocked out(p) how I became a prince of a town called Bel-air.

The titles and The graffiti ar brightly coloured to attract teenagers to the show. The graffiti is also normally very popular to teenagers. A majority of teenagers will also depict graffiti in their country as well as America where the show is filmed. The camera angles (high/medium angle) adds meaning to the shot and links the hold up to the theme. The throne is there to emphasise the phrase Prince and it also represents teenagers thoughts and dreams about organism rich.The second mise-en-scene has about ten seconds filming time, in this short scene Will Smith is seen writing graffiti on the wall and the military officer is shaking his baton constantly at him to stop.

The yellow American taxi pulls up besides him, he slaps the drivers hand and walks over to the passenger door, climbs in and calls out Yo home to Bel-AirThe dwell scene is the scene where the taxi pulls up to the Bel-Air mansion and Will climbs out of the taxi and calls to him Yo ho smell ya later. He turns to the Bel-Air mansion and saysLooked at my kingdom and I was finally there to settle my throne as the prince of Bel-AirThis show does target teenagers successfully because the RAP story narrative is what many teenagers will like and take more notice of. The colours are bright and loud not dull and boring to make the audience take more notice.The typefaces(text) are usually in graffiti mood writing to attract teenagers to read it and to be more aware of what they are reading. The music throughout the narrative was an easy beat because its fun and easy to listen to. Many teenagers in America listen to RAP/R&B so the music in the beginning is similar to what they would usually listen to.All the mise-en-scenes have a meaning, they show teenagers things they associate with and things they would like to have. All camera angles are positioned to show eitherMeaning to an object, feeling towards the subject or link themes to their backgrounds.
