From all my research into documentaries I have come to the conclusion that my target audience for a technology baseddocumentary will be teenagers to late twenties (16 - 27)My target audience will be: aimed at both males and females Young people who attend high school, college, university or working My TA would be from different social groupings There film interest lies in sci fi and inspired by true event TV shows: Panorama, Dispatches, The gadget show
Through my primary research (questionnaires and online surveys) Ifound out that late teens (16-17) to early 30’s enjoy watchingdocumentaries therefore I am targeting my documentary from 17+There wasn’t a difference between genders when asking members ofthe public if they like a documentary based on technology e.g. gamingculture through my research I collected that both males and femaleslike watching technology types of documentary as both genders dohave a relation with technology.
My documentary genre is popular towards my target audience A majority of them do watch documentaries often as one teen stated that he watches them “because they come on channel 4 and BBC1 quite often”.Although 50% of individuals said that they like to watch an interactive documentary I have decided not to go with that and go for an Expository documentary as I think it will merge well with my theme of technology. KEY: Aged, 16-25 Aged, 26-35 Aged, 36-44 Aged, 50+
