Films, like ‘Super 8’ attracted their audience by putting advertisements on Facebook, so they could attract their younger teenage audiences. They were also adverted on children’s channels e.g. Nickelodeon or Disney. To attract our audience we made a ‘Facebook and Twitter page’ for them to join in the discussion of what we are doing next to our thriller film and for our target audience to get the latest on our film.
We chose our music very carefully for our opening scene as it had to fit in with the genre of thriller and not rock. Rock suited action movies more than a thriller movie. We decided to have piano music playing throughout because we wanted to have the music build tension so it makes the audience wonder what is going to happen next.
