Q3. What have you learned from your audience feedback?
Audience Feedback - DocumentaryQ: Do you think the title “Ridin’” is appropriate for this documentary?A: Yes I do, as I knew what the documentary was about straight away. The font is effective too as I knew from the tarmacappearance of the font that the theme of the documentary was to do with BMX’s or motorbikes.Q: Do you think the setting of the documentary (Skate Park) is appropriate for the subject matter of thedocumentary?A: Yes I do as it fits with the theme, and you can see graffiti and skate board ramps in the background of the documentarywhich relates to the skating and BMXing that is shown on screenQ: Were you aware of the genre of the documentary from what the opening of the documentary suggests?A: I was aware that the documentary had an alternative style from the start as the camera work captures the alternativecharacters and the setting reflects the alternative nature of the documentary as wellQ: Do you think the special effects and image manipulation used in the documentary editing is appropriatefor the documentary?A: Yes I do because the bright colours and unique filters that have been used throughout show that the documentary isaimed mostly at a teenage audience, and also reflects the “youth” in the documentary as wellQ: Do you think our documentary follows the basic conventions of a sport documentary, or deviates fromthese typical conventions?A: I think the documentary has elements of both; the camera work is conventional, yet the editing and colour use isdifferent than what I have seen in a typical sport documentary beforeQ: What improvements would you suggest for the documentary?A: I think one thing I would improve is to use more interviews in the documentary
Audience Feedback – Ancillary ProductsQ: Do you think that my final ancillary products link with the documentary?A: Yes I do, because they all have a similar appearance and use a consistent colour scheme which I find really appealing.Q: Do you think the images and fonts I have used in my ancillaries are suitable for the genre of thedocumentary?A: I do yes because they are bold and make a statement, just like the sports featured in the documentary make boldstatements also. The images are appropriate as they all feature an alternative appearance linking to the alternative nature ofthe documentary, and are visually appealing which makes me want to watch the documentary.Q: If you saw the ancillary products before the documentary, would it make you want to view thedocumentary?A: Yes it would because I like the images featured in both the newspaper advertisement and magazine review, and imagesare important to me. I’m also interested in this genre of documentary so I would watch it based on your ancillariesQ: Are there any improvements you could suggest for my ancillary products?A: Not really as they all appeal to me, I think they all work well together, and individually on their own.
