Charlotte Page & Jamie Whitbread
We asked our audience to select some cinematography elements that they thought would be appropriate to use in a horror film. The top three elements to use were extreme close-ups, point of view shots and jumpy or quick cuts so these are elements we will consider adding to our trailer.
To conclude, our findings have shown that our target audience is both male and female aged between 16 to 25 and mainly students who have part time jobs. This shows that our target audience do have a small income available to spend on films which not everyone would have. This is supported by our audience saying they spend mostly between £6 to £10 on film consumption per month.
From our results, our audience digitally download films more than going to the cinema as this is a cheaper option so reflects our student audience. However, the cinema was also a popular choice so these will both be platforms to consider when distributing our film. Similarly, for our trailer, our audience would be most likely to see this using a computer which is another factor will consider.
From our results, in our trailer we propose to use a modern house for the setting and a serious language style as this was most appealing to our audience. Furthermore, we also propose to use extreme close-ups, point of view shots and jumpy/quick cuts as our audience suggest this will help our film fit the psychological horror genre.
For our first ancillary task of a magazine front cover, we found that the style of Empire’s: The Joker magazine front cover was most popular so we propose to use bold colours, and an eye-catching image to make our front cover more appealing to our target audience.
Similarly, for our poster we have found that the image is the most important factor to making our poster attractive therefore we propose to use an image that is quite shocking as this will make it more noticeable to an audience whilst also fitting to the psychological horror genre.
