We decided that we wanted our soap to be broadcast on E4. We chose this particular channel as the programmes already broadcasted on it were aimed at a SIMILAR AUDIENCE to our soap (AGE 16-24). We based our research on and looked at their already existing trailers for INSPIRATION.TITLE CARDS help to split up the story lines and help toGUIDE the audience through what’s happening in the trailer.

For my final trailer I used, WARZONE - THE WANTED as my soundtrack. The song is about cheating which fitted one of the storylines in my parody. The song connotes sadness and made my trailer seems more emotional compared to others in my group.LYRICSI cant believe I had to seeThe girl of my dreams cheating on meThe pain you caused has left me dead insideIm gonna make sure you regret that night
Kerrianne’s trailer uses I AM WHAT I AM – GLORIA GAYNER as the soundtrack, which makes the trailer more AMUSING and LIGHT-HEARTED. Compared to my trailer, this shows how the use of a song can CHANGE the whole MEANING of a trailer, and in comparison to each other they give the audience a completely DIFFERENT FEEL for the storylines.CLICK TO SEE KERRIANNE’S TRAILER
