  • Genre of our film is a romantic comedy, and the audience have many expectations from a film of this kind. These expectations are created through the use of codes and conventions, and we tried to adhere to as many as possible to make sure our teaser trailer would be instantly recognisable as a romantic comedy. Firstly, the characters need to be likeable. Our lead character is a young man in his early twenties called Nick. Throughout the trailer he can be heard to say things considered very cheeky, such as “who can blame me?” when talking about dating three women. Although this character is quite cocky, he is still extremely likeable and someone that female audience members especially would be appealed to. Secondly, because rom coms are quite light hearted films, the bright lighting normally reflects this which is why we filmed only during the day. We also included scenes where it was snowing, to represent Christmas. This is a very romantic time of year where lots of friends and family get together. It also gives a sense of time moving on.
  • Thirdly, there are normally up beat well known pop songs to add to the whole light heartedness of the film. Unfortunately, due to copyright laws we were unable to choose well known songs that had been previously released, which is why we had to use free music available online. We challenged the convention of the typical boy meets girl story line, which may surprise the audience and make them want to see the film as it is not their typical romantic comedy. The structure is the same though, with the protagonist having to overcome complications before he eventually falls in love in the end.
  • Teaser trailers are normally 30-60 seconds long, as they are simple a way of teasing the audience and show them what film is to come. They are normally made a year and a half in advance before the film is even released, and therefore show little, if any, footage from the actual film itself. The film name is definitely given at the end of the film to remind users laters on when it is released.
  • There were many aspects of our trailer that were inspired by the ‘Alfie’ trailer. For example, this includes the upbeat music, the scenes with Nick, slow motion introduction to the girls, shots of the location to set the scene and also a montage of images.
