Evaluation Question 3 - Part 1
What have you learned from your audience feedback and how did you attract/address your audience?
- Our primary audience for our horror trailer is primarily young people who enjoy horror films and going to the cinemas and watch them. Therefore this means that our trailer will use all of the key generic elements of mise-en-scene, cinematography, sound and edit to encourage our audience to anticipate or predict what is going to happen from the trailer to the film, this will also mean they get more pleasure out of it. For example, the scene where we are in the bathroom, the use of the anticipation built up using the mirror and then the face popping up over my shoulder, this is a common trait and shot used in most horror films and trailers, because it is classic and everyone knows what is going to happen next, the fact that the cupboard door with the mirror on it opens - so you can no longer see anyone's reflection - and then when the cupboard door is closed, we see the characters face, with a possessed person or a demon etc. behind the character. We also expect this because of the music behind the shot too, the crescendo of scary and creepy music, the more it builds up, the more the audience expect something bad to happen, which is what we have used in various shots, as the larger use of generic elements, the more enjoyable and thrilling experience it has for the audience, as they can anticipate what is going to happen next, meaning they don't have to think to hard into the film meaning it is easy for the audience to watch.
