Question 3

  1. 1. QUESTION 3 By Rosanna ToddMonday, 25 February 13
  2. 2. What have you learned from your audience feedback? When researching into and planning our documentary we found that carrying out questionnaires was a useful and easy way to find out more about our target audience. From these questionnaires we were able to find out what our target audience would expect from a documentary (e.g. expert interviews, voiceover/narration, facts, vox pops and music) and whether or not they would be interested in watching a documentary on ‘Twitter’. Our feedback was overall very positive. As these questionnaires were such a success in the research/planning stages, we decided to conduct more to be able to collect and analyse the feedback from our documentary, double-page spread and radio trailer. We asked 18 16-18 year olds their opinion on our products and the results are analysed as followed.Monday, 25 February 13

However the narration could always be heard over the background music which was a positive and maybe why half of our audience answered “yes”.Monday, 25 February 13
