SummaryOverall the feedback gained from my target market werepositive. They explained on how well edited the trailer wasand how good the shots were composed. The ancillarytasks were equally as successful with the audience, theythought that the poster was simple but effective and themagazine looked official and conventional.However the negatives that were picked out about thetrailer were centred around the music and how it didn’treally fit the genre. Also the ancillary tasks were too simpleand the composition of the images were confusing andstrange.
Improvements - TrailerFrom the audience feedback I have learnt that thetrailer needs better music, as it doesn’t fit thegenre and doesn’t related to what’s happeningwithin the film.Also some of the costumes should have beenbetter thought out, for example when my characteris dressed casually in joggers and a hoody for adate. He should have been smarter to show theimportance of the date.
Improvements – AncillaryThe audience feedback I gathered also gave me lots ofthings to improve concerning my ancillary tasks, themagazine although it looked good, drew criticisms for thecomposition of the images on the front.Also the colour scheme wasn’t well thought out with a fewpeople thinking that it was too bland and lacked real colour.The poster was too simple, many people thought that itneeded more added to it, it just seemed like a picture with afew bits of writing. It needed more emphasis on the title ofthe film.
