  • 1. Detailed research
  • 2. Trailer 1 • Insidious 2 (2013) • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rtQvkcTLC 9M
  • 3. Institutional codes The production company is blumhouse productions, along with paramount in many of their productions. A key unique selling point that I have noticed in many of their film trailer’s are audience reactions. They use other people reactions to the films, in the trailer, to lure in a wider audience who wish to experience something they have just seen other peoples reactions to. Insidious only uses a small amount of this in the trailer. Another film produced by these two companies is the paranormal activity phenomena. The first trailer is based on audience reaction. Another unique selling point or institutional code is the whispering in eor demons repeat them selves by whispering over and over at the build up point to a frightening part in the trailer. For example in stranded the quote ‘I'm going insane’ is repeated and in insidious 2; ‘he’s got your baby’.
  • 4. The key selling point. The key selling point of the trailer is the narrative. The basic storyline is that there are a few Children who can see and hear demons which them kidnap them and haunt the parents. It is Quite an individual narrative and not one I had heard of before. Todaro’s narrative theory explains how the ending to a film should have a ‘new equilibrium’, meaning a resolution. However this film is not resolved which creates a unique selling point as the film is so individual. The editing and pace of the trailer is also quite effective, because it jumps and the non diegetic music matches the actions, causing the audience to jump.
  • 5. Establishing The insidious trailer establishes the genre almost straight away. The first time we definitely know that it is a horror is when the scary child's music plays and the toy is moving by itself. However before that, the lighting and quickly paced close up shots to show reactions give the genre away. To establish the mood, the trailer begins with a Normal family setting, and the actors are not frightened and are together, however then shots begin to get closer and the lighting turns to a green/redish color to set the scary mood. Also, the pace begins to quicken and music starts. The expectation is set quite high because of how much if the story the trailer gives away. The entire storyline is shown and it is quite a long trailer so when people go and watch the actual film they will be expecting to see things they havnt already seen in the trailer.
  • 6. Audience The target audience for insidious 2 is most likely to be the older teen and young adult of a mix sex. This is because the trailer shows some gore but not enough to stop young teens watching the film. The dialog in the trailer also suits this target audience. The audience is explicitly targeted by the use of actors. This is because they are a family experiences this together. The audience can relate to family life as they will be within range still living with family or recently have. The trailer also portrays itself to be extremely scary, which may cause younger audiences to compete against each other in bravery.
  • 7. Trailer 2 • The crazies • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yCxU7cCef yY
  • 8. Institutional codes Overture films is the main company involved in the production and distribution of this film, and the unique selling point that this company like to use t=in their trailer’s is not giving away too much of the storyline. Two examples of this is the crazies, and the =film let me in trailer. There are also more that use this technique. Many trailers are also very fast paced, which adds a professional touch to a trailer.
  • 9. Key selling points The key selling point for The crazies trailer is the excellent editing, for example the pace and sound effects. Also, the very individual non diegetic music played toward the end of the trailer. A sad song is played over the gory and action part of the film. This is really effective and lures the audience in because of the individualism. It also adds a huge emotional touch to the trailer, which atracts a very wide spread of audience making them think – ‘that is so sad I need to find out what happens’.
  • 10. establishing The trailer establishes the genre at the beginning of the trailer after the characters and location has been introduced. For example at around 21 seconds into the trailer, peoples facial expressions and the music suddenly change to frightened confused faces at the baseball match. After this, the pace speeds up rapidly and sound effects are brought in. The mood is set mostly by the shots and music. For example, when the genre is established and people begin to notice the ‘craziness’ fast paced shots begin to make the audience jumpy and the music begins to set the scary mood. A good example of setting the mood is when the trailer is beginning to get scary, a sound effect which sounds a bit like rattling bones is played and lots of shots are quickly played briefing the audience about what is about to happen. This is a really good technique. The expectation of the actual film is set by the wording and in particular the font style. The producers of the trailer tell the audience without using semiotics or codes that this film is going to be outstandingly scary.
  • 11. audience • The target audience is probably 16-40. A very large target audience however, the film is not too gory and the trailer shows this by showing characters of around these ages and the language would be understood by everyone within this age range. The mental health theme implied may be too much for anyone any younger. • The audience is explicitly targeted by the use of writing on screen, being told normal people like them could experience something like this. For example ‘your neighbors’ ‘your friends’. This is a really good technique to involve the audience.
  • 12. Trailer 3 • The women in black • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dPYMUnJG URI
  • 13. Institutional codes Hammer produced women in black which was its first big film. However another trailer they have produced reflects the women in black trailer because of the narrative. Both trailer’s do not give too much away and therefore leave some enigma for the audience.
  • 14. Key selling points The key selling point for this film trailer is the actor. Danielle Radcliff is a huge star and well known from harry potter films. The trailer shows this of a lot and he is also The main advertising point for the film. The trailer is also very well constructed, the Editing, peace, music, dialog is fantastic and it really lures in the audience.
  • 15. establishing The trailer established the genre after showing the location and characters etc. the music suddenly stops and the ghost women appears. This is a good effect in the trailer, and the mood suddenly changes due the the music and the pace. The mood throughout the trailer is started and stopped continuously which creates a jumpy atmosphere about the film. The expectation of the film is set HUGE. This is because of the star actor and the wording. ‘the most chilling ghost story of our time’.
  • 16. audience • The target audience will be 16-30. this is because this is the ‘harry potter generation’ as describe through research. People that watched harry potter, which is a global phenomena. • The audience are targeted because they are expected to know who Daniel is, and the wording basically invites them to learn about the story by not giving too much narrative away.
  • 17. Out of the three trailers, the women in black appealed to me the most because to me, it seemed like this film was going to be huge, the anticipation of release date is created just right. For example the huge number of different shot types at a fast pace drew me in and it seems extremely professional. Another key factor of this trailer is that it didn't’t show gore. The other two films showed quite a lot of gore, which is my personal opinion but also this will make the film available for a wider, younger, audience. The women in black and the crazies trailers, do not give away too much of the narrative which worked for me because it leaves enigma for the audience. Insidious however shows quite a lot of the narrative. In terms of identifiable format all 3 trailers have extremely fast pace shots, which is evidence of very professional produced trailer. The trailers also use a wording format. For example: All 3 trailers actually use the same font.
  • 18. The purpose of film trailers, in particular horror trailers, is to scare, interest and make the audience want to watch the film. These trailers are produced in this way to create audience anticipation, for example fast paced shots. Another way they are produced which shows the purpose is the speech and dialog.
