Fifteen members of the audiencewere interviewed; this is a large number so it is easier to how the feedback was overall. 1) Did you enjoy the video?This was the first question asked, fifteen members of the audience said they enjoyed themusic video and they would love to see a second part to the current video, this indicates thatour music video is of high standard.

(Yes: 15/ No: 0) 2) Did you understand the narrative?Thirteen people they understood the narrative and unfortunately three people said they didn’t,however due to the amount of people that said they did, overall the majority understood thenarrative which shows it was portrayed properly, one reason why people may have found itconfusing is because there are a number of shots that are cut fast which may have confusedthem, the reason these shots were included was to create awareness of the feeling of the maincharacter and how there is a lot happening at the same time.

(Yes: 14/ No: 1) 9) The text and colours we used in our digi-pack and magazine complemented the photos we took. Do you agree?Eleven people agreed with this statement; however four people said that the colour didn’tcomplement our photos. The colour of our cd case is black, this is a simple colour, we hadchosen this colour due to the fact that it would empower the picture leaving a powerful cdcase.
