SurveyMonkey is a service that allows you to create polls and surveys to get valuable data from our audiences.
Creating surveys and polls is a great way to learn what our audiences want. You can use them to approve ideas for the film, improve upon the existing story of the film but also find out exactly what they look for in a drama/thriller film.
This web-based service is easy to use. You can create many different questions from multiple choices, multiple choices (with multiple answers), rating scale, a form, text boxes and comment boxes.
The highest vote was Thriller films with 15% followed by Drama films with 14%. This results came back really positive because our film is also a drama/thriller film. So according to these results it means people will enjoy watching our film too
These are other films that has influenced us into making our film and we wanted to which of them they liked watching.
The results shows that Munich was the most popular. (This film was about the Israeli government's secret retaliation attacks after the massacre of Israeli athletes by Black September militant group.) This relates to our film because in our film we also show a terror attack.
Every film production has a specific style and technique, from the result it shows that Lionsgate had the most votes. This again was brilliant news for us because our film is dark with a cold blue tone colour and Lionsgate also have some similarities.
This question was the most important to us because we actually wanted the hoodie guy to have the most votes but in fact it’s 50/50 with both of them having 18% each. For this results we needed to do some changes to our film e.g. dramatic music, suspicious scenes and camera angles and shots.
In this question we wanted to find out what type of thriller film theme they like watching. The most popular was Suspense followed by Mystery – our film has a combination of both because the film has the feeling of suspense and our characters are mysterious.
Climax came third place and this relates to our film as there is a high point in our film where all the questions are hopefully answered.
In today’s lesson we had two students in year 10 from our school and asked them to watch our short film and to tell us what they thought of it so far. We decided to have students look at our film because they fitted in with our target audience and we wanted to know whether they understood the storyline and concept of the film since we thought the film was confusing for the younger audience to understand. We wanted to know that information in order for me to do any further editing to the film or any changes I can do to improve it.
