My Billboard I have challenged the conventions of a typical Made In Chelsea poster. Unlike the Made In Chelsea poster I have used a wide range of backgrounds this makes the billboard stand out and seem more interesting. In the Made In Chelsea billboard it is unclear what is going on as we don‟t no who the women „Spencer‟ is talking to, where as in my billboard it is clear that all the characters of my soap are angry towards Tarquin (bottom middle) this will make the viewers of billboard want to watch the show as they want to know what he has done wrong.This is the billboard I have based mine on. Thisis from the show The Only Way Is Essex.Though it is a scripted reality it is the oppositeof what Made In Manchester and my show aimto produce. I have chosen to base my billboardon this but have added a story to mine ratherthan just random images
Shot Types Close Up Made In Chelsea Made In Manchester Over The Shoulder
SettingThrough out the filming we needed to make sure we filmed our trailer in a set would fitted the conventions of Made In Chelsea. Made In Chelsea is a show that is about wealth and we needed to portray this.Both these shots are shot in a bar. The Made In Chelsea shot (left) has a bottle of champagne with has connotations of wealth and the brick wall decor shows its up market. Similarly the Made In Manchester shot (right) has a background that shows the bar is expensive and fancy this is shown by the nice decor and leather seats.
StorylineDuring the Made In Chelsea scene the story is easy to follow. It could easily be watched by someone who had never seen the show and they could still understand the storyline. Therefore I needed my trailer to be easy and simple to follow this can be done by strong dialog and the use of realistic storylineFriend cheats with friends The other girl who likes him Gets rejected by the girl hegirlfriend moves away as she thinks he thinks likes him doesn‟t like her Realises he likes the girl who is Runs to train station to stop her leaving going but is to late
TV TimesIn order for my show to reach its target audience I needed to make sure it was played at similar time to Made In Chelsea. The TV guide shows its on at 10pm on E4 on a Monday. I will put my show on E4 on a Wednesday at 10pm this is because my target audience won‟t be in bed as they stay up to watch Made In Chelsea on a monday

Costumes These shots show the costumes we wore whilst shooting our trailer. The two lads are both wearing a buttoned up shirt and have there top button done up, this is a fashion that is seen to be smart therefore they are portraying the wealth and fashion that is needed to make a scripted reality work. The girl has a blazer on and has a lot of make- up this makes her look glamorous therefore fitting the conventions of a scripted reality actor

Closing Shot The closing shot of a trailer is important firstly it shows a key feeling emotion based on how the episode is going to be. We can see that in this episode of Made In Chelsea something that is going to sadden Spencer is going to happen, so therefore in my trailer my closing shot shows Tarquin looking at a train station time board and by his body language you can tell he has missed what he was looking for. Also in a closing shot it advertises the show name, the time it is on as well as the date, this is so the audience know when to tune in.
