  • 2. Thoughts on Trailers – Purpose and Intention
    There many trailers for many different genres – among those are horror, action/thriller, family, sci-fi and romance.
    There are many things however that make a good trailer. A good trailer would include most if not some of the following things…
    • A sense of a story or overall plot (narrative)
    • 3. Promoting the film to a suitable target audience
    • 4. Promoting key people in the production (director, actors)
    • 5. Creating a suitable mood or atmosphere
    • 6. Use of genre e.g. elements of sci-fi to make it clear to target audience that it is a sci-fi film

    Example of Film – The Amazing Spider-man
    This is an action film, produced by Marvel and Colombia Pictures, centered around the Spider-Man franchise.
    Examples why this is a good trailer:
    • Heavy use of action scenes and sequences – emphasizes genre.
    • 8. Mood established – dark cityscape invokes tension, while bright rooftops puts emphasis on action
    • 9. Non-diegetic music raises tension, generates an atmosphere.
    • 10. Use of enigma codes (villain is left a mystery) , brings an audience who wants answers.
    • 11. A use of a first-person perspective (Spider-Man leaping across buildings) , promotes as an action film, makes audience feel part of it.
