Family

  1. 1. Exploring genre Family
  2. 2. What is a family film? A family film has been defined as: "A family film is a film genre that is designed to appeal to a variety of age groups and, thus, families. To attract these diverse audiences, film makers often create works that operate simultaneously on several levels of appeal.[citation needed] Comic songs might appeal to younger children, for example, while wittier jokes and pop culture references attract adults."

  4. 4. Oz Playful music attracts younger audience Humour appeals to an older audience somewhat educational No strong language or violence suitable for a wide audience Usually involves some form of conflict which is family based often has a happy ending
  5. 5. Could I produce a family film trailer? A family film has a broad availability of storylines as it can involve almost anything as long as it is suitable for young children. When creating a family film market research would be essential as it is so broad. I will need to look at how I can tailor my film to appeal to both children and adults. This may include the music/score, editing techniques, mise en scene and cinematography being used specifically to appeal to part of the audience. A family film, is not essentially a genre, but a type of film, therefore most genres can be family films if they do not contain extreme violence/ language or other scenes that are deemed unsuitable for children. It is unlikely for my film to do any of these things, therefore I will need to research a family market after concluding this in my initial ideas.
