QUESTION 4:Who would be the audience for your mediaproduct?
Who is your film aimed at and why?• When we was planning about our film, we decided to have a target audience for teenagers. But we change when we started to do some research on UK Film Council and the result was a lot of female who are under 35 yrs. old enjoys watching romance films and there wasn’t a lot of difference between the upper, middle and lower class. So we decided to change our target audience into a wider range by aiming it to teenagers, who are under 35 and also to people that enjoys watching romance films.
These are some examplesof demographic data fromthe UK film council websiteof target audiences. And theone circled in black is theromance genre that we aredoing.
What classification did you give your film?• By using the BBFC, it helped us to determine who our target audience is by comparing the actions or language of our film into another film. And I gave a 12 classification on our film as we have shown that the male protagonist is abusing alcohol and violence which a lot of people are offended by. However we will not show this to a large extent. There are also movements and languages used to copy language. There would be sexual activity between the two protagonists but only kissing is shown and not in detail of a real sex.
