Evaluation: Question 3 - Target Audience

Our film would attract mostly the male audience although it may appeal to females awell.The film is mainly to be watched by people in College and Universtity students because their are more likely to get the plots. This is the best audience to target our film at because they are up-to-date with some of the current technology used in the film. Students are also more likey to go out to the cinema and watch the film with there friends so we'd get a larger profit by aiming it at them.

 Looking at it from a different perspective quite a few women would want to go see it because of attraction to the male character.
  Because it is a pycological thriller many older people around the ages of 30 would like to watch it because it gives them a film they could enjoy better compared to a film like 'Legally  Blonde' or 'Twilight'

Evaluation - 8) Looking back at your preliminary task, what do you feel have learned in the progression from it to the full product?

All these exercises we were set to do all helped with the progression of our real thriller opening, as we at the beginning never had enough shots, and for our real thriller we had so many that we couldn’t choose. Furthermore, as the lessons carried on we all understood the programming a lot more making it easier for us to edit and create effects on LiveType and Sound Track Pro. I enjoyed producing this thriller opening, and I hope you enjoy watching it.

Question 6 - More Audience Feedback

Question 2

The reason why I have chosen the two still from the character from the movie "Stepfather" is because this is the film that inspired us, mainly due to the great use of props and shots which allowed the first impression on the audience to be very bold. The mirror shots connote identity or who they really are, or not sure who they are which would puzzle the audience instantly getting them interested. The reason why I chose Stepfather is because it's great at presenting that sense of normality and then suddenly shocking the audience in something the wouldn't expect. Though our thriller may not have showed any sense of disturbances in what the character is really doing or somethings wrong, we save the tension to build up for longer as I thought after watching the first few scenes of Stepfather that I would make the suspense endure on the audience to get a larger shock.

Question 1 - Challenging conventions.

Some differences that our thriller uses from the introduction to DEXTER is that our title comes in slightly later, however we present our character much faster and the full image of the face and that allows to build suspense and allows the audience to help build a character on what kind of person he is.

In the 2nd shot of DEXTER, his looking in the mirror, similarly we have done that on our first, DEXTER 3rd shot compared to our 2nd shot is a bathroom scene which allows a sense of normality to these characters as they do ordinary things thought this still builds tension.

By Dexter's 4th shot, We have our title which then follows onto our title being showed again on a disc on the 5th shot. And Dexter's title is showed once at the beginning that's all, we kept reminding our audience of the name of the film giving a great stress and importance on the name "I.C.U"

Most of these shots, allows to build tension whilst conveying a sense of normality and all these shots give a sense of personality of what kind of person these people are. Dexter is seen to be a very clean and organised and healthy person, as where our character is seen to be scruffy, stressed  and this is presented by the mise en scene (such as smoking) and drinking tea and so on gives a sense of an adult life.

These are some of the ways on how our film develops and challenges forms and convention of real media productions.
