MOVIESFrom looking at the Kaiser family research I found out that the people who visit the cinema the most are -age: 14-18 race: black gender: male parents education: HS or lessThe research carried out by the Kaiser family was all done in America, this makes the information less reliable but it is still relevant and useful.From looking at my primary research results I can see that the most popular Genre for films was comedy and horror, although this was out of twenty people.
WHERE DO THEY WATCH FILMS?Buying DVD’s is no longer a common way to watch films due to the expensive prices and theeasier and cheaper alternativesServices like Netflix and Love Film offer a wide range of films to be watched on your computer,gaming console or TV, the only issue is that it’s around £6 a month which is expensive for ateenager to pay for, if a teenager has this service it is often paid for by their parents.The cheapest and possibly easiest way to watch films is by illegally streaming them, although thequality of the films is often poor, it is still 100% free and very easy to find whatever film you arelooking for.Even though there is these free and cheap ways to watch films cinema is still very relevant, thisis because for teenagers cinema is not just to enjoy the film but to enjoy the whole cinemaexperience with your friends, also cinema offers what no website or service can do which isshowing brand new films with perfect quality.

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE FILMSI think comedy is always a good choice when aiming a film at both male and female, especially teenagers, to make it more appropriate it could also be a teen comedy set in London. Of course there would be a main topic like an issue or a hobby for the film to revolve around. This type of film would suit the teen audience I have just profiled
