<ul><li>As our audience is aimed for a young audience of about 15 – 24 year olds, we decided to use young attractive actors. </li></ul><ul><li>We figured that this would appeal to our target audience because they could relate to the actors but also still appeal to the older end of the audience because of being a crime thriller. </li></ul>Here is a picture of our characters.
<ul><li>We made sure that our women detective was attractive and had a femme fatale character to appeal to the male audience and also not be too dissimilar from programs such as CSI who have good looking women as their detectives. </li></ul>
<ul><li>We even made her wear smart casual clothes, high heels and red lipstick to conform to the “male gaze” </li></ul><ul><li>We also include an aspect of romance between the two detectives which could appeal to the female end of the target audience. </li></ul>
<ul><li>A key feature of our film is the thriller and crime scene aspect. </li></ul><ul><li>In our opening sequence there is a lot of blood and particular props near the beginning when we see the dead bodies. </li></ul><ul><li>Again this was to draw in our 15-24 year old audiences , mainly males. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Other props which fit in with our audience is the gun which we see. </li></ul><ul><li>This automatically links with danger and a thriller genre which would definitely appeal to our target audience. </li></ul>
<ul><li>We also used Lionsgate as our film studio because in particular they have done films such as Saw, Hostel and Drag Me To Hell. </li></ul><ul><li>This may also appear to our audience because of the types of films Lionsgate have released before are horrors and thrillers. </li></ul><ul><li>They are also quite a mainstream studio and are highly recognised which would probably attract our 15-24 year old audience. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Our location and set also links to the rest of the aspects such as cast and props. </li></ul><ul><li>Our set has a grimy look which just reinforces the fact that our film is a thriller. </li></ul><ul><li>This then attracts our target audience as it sets the scene. </li></ul>
