The target audience for our film would be menlikely around the age of 18-28 and would beseen as ‘lads’.
We chose a male audience due to the fact thatthe film involves violent scenes as well as gangand thug life which is more commonly viewedand enjoyed by men.
The target audience we have selected wouldenjoy this film as it relates closely to films suchas Snatch and Lock Stock and Two SmokingBarrels as well relating to other films such asGreen Street which may attract a slightlyyounger and perhaps a different audiencecompletely.
The target audience for our production wouldbe stereotypically seen as the ones who go outto the pub every night after a hard days workand then go out to watch football on theweekends.
The audience would be targeted to be the typewho’d watch Danny Dyer’s films and RossKemps programs such as Ross Kemp on Gangsand the Football Factory as the amount ofviolence in and what topics they revolve around.
The music the target audience would beinterested in would usually be anything which isaired on BBC Radio 1 as well as majority ofmusic within the charts. E.g. Professor Green,Pendulum etc.
This audience would watch my film as it involvescommon traits which are in other films whichthe audience may view. Such as drugs, fights,violence and drugs.
Evaluation Task 5• Film opening is revelant to other films of the genre• Cross Promotion• Feedback
Our film opening links in with other films of ourgenre such as Se7en and Snatch. The reasons forthis is because they both start off with a crimeas well as our opening does which is aconvention of thrillers. Snatch also starts offwith a gang which relates to our opening also.
Due to the fact that these film intros are closelyrelated to my opening, then the audiences fromthose films will most likely enjoy and beattracted to watch my film.
• The music we used in the opening fits in well with other films within the genre and helps create an eerie atmosphere. This is because of it being industrial genre, it makes everything seem more gritty and dark which suits the crime thriller genre well.
In some films the production companies usecertain products to create awareness of themsuch as cars and drinks. E.g. The Audi TT in I-robot seems much more superior than othercars within the film.
Some media products that would work wellwithin our film would be the brand of clotheswhich are being worn in the film such as the suitwhich Max is seen wearing, as well as certainbands/artists which get mention or playedthroughout the film.Certain drinks which the characters have couldbe placed there for promotion, such as theprotagonist only drinking Diet Coke.
After having a feedback session in class andonce we showed some of our friends and familythe production we gained some insightful ideasin how we could improve our film as well aswhat was good with it.
Positive FeedbackThe use of music in the film was praised as itworked well and helped create a tenseatmosphere, although some say there was toomuch music going on. The different variety ofshots as well as the different sound effects weregood and helped create a strong narrative. Alsothe use of the Miramax logo at the beginningworked well.
CriticismThe production got criticised for certain reasonssuch as the camera used at the beginning wasdifferent to the camera we used after causingdifferent quality of shots. Some of our clotheschange slightly as we move location as it wasraining and the pace inside the garage neededto be more fast pace at points.
