RESULTS The first questionnaire we created changed the whole idea of our clip as no one liked our first idea of a sports comedy Audience where interested in teen comedies Like the idea of using typical teen humour Specific to the teenage audience Changed storyline and enigma code Piloted a new questionnaire with the new idea
RESULTS FOR QUESTIONNAIRE (2) Much better response Target audience liked the idea a lot more Gave input for ideas and gave tips on movies to avoid any similarities Confirmed the second story line and showed it would be successful
TARGET AUDIENCE Through creating the questionnaire we have worked out our target audience: Age: will be teenagers and young adults Gender: mainly males because most male people that completed the questionnaire said they liked the comedy genre, whereas females liked romcoms and chick flicks
