    • 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)
      • Promoting the film to a suitable target audience
      • Promoting key people in the production (director, actors)
      • Creating a suitable mood or atmosphere
      • 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.
      • Mood established – dark cityscape invokes tension, while bright rooftops puts emphasis on action
      • Non-diegetic music raises tension, generates an atmosphere.
      • Use of enigma codes (villain is left a mystery) , brings an audience who wants answers.
      • A use of a first-person perspective (Spider-Man leaping across buildings) , promotes as an action film, makes audience feel part of it.
