Parody = A humorous imitation or spoof
Interpellation is a concept in Marxism, Social and Political theory associated in particular with Louis Althusser who used the term to explain the way in which ideas get into our heads and have an effect on our lives.
Althusser argues that cultural ideas have such a hold on us that we believe they are our own.
But no, according to Louis Interpellation is a process in which we encounter our culture’s values and internalise them as if they were our own.
Interpellation expresses the idea that an idea is not simply yours alone (such as “I like yellow, I always have”) but rather an idea that has been presented to you for you to accept.
Ideologies – our values, thought and beliefs attitudes towards gender, class, and race – should be thought of more as social processes.
Accepting or not accepting a culture’s given attitudes places one in a particular relationship with power.
Ideologies “address” people and offer them a particular identity which they are encouraged to accept.
However, one is not forced to accept that role through violence.
Because those roles are offered to us everywhere we look, or even assigned to us by culture,
They are presented in such a way that we are encouraged to accept them.
This works best when it is an invisible, but consensual process.
It works best when we believe these values are our own, and reflect the most obvious, logical way to live.
Ideologies, therefore, play a crucial role first in constructing our identities and then giving us a particular place in society.
To say that someone is fully interpellated is to say that he or she has been successfully brought into accepting a certain role, or that he or she has accepted values willingly.

The Importance of Depth of Field
Depth of frame is a theory in film which states that shots in your movie should usually have: a foreground, a middle ground, and a background. Obviously many shots won’t use this whether it’s a close up, or used to focus your attention onto one important thing (by using shallow depth of field a zoom etc.) but it is important.
Diagonal or leading lines that travel down the frame also help with this.This school of thought stems from the idea of trying creating a three dimensional image on a two dimensional surface. If used successfully in a movie it can really make a difference in taking it to that next level of cinematic experience.
