How did you attract/address your audience? &Who would be the audience for your media product?
The audience who responded the best to our Media project - It seemed that the females of around 20 seemed to enjoy our film the most. This could be due to the fact that we’re 0-20 females so we made a film that would appeal to us and that target audience.
I think our film was so popular with that audience because of the many relatable objects we have used (most of the time subtly but not always). Things such as friendship, revising and religion.
Friendship.Friendship is one of the most relatable aspects to our film especially to females as girl’stend to form friendship groups with one girl (who they call their best friend) being theperson they trust the most. They’ll also relate to having someone from the outsideintrude into the friendship (Im assuming. Not to sound stereotypical but most girl’s willhave experienced the feeling of jealousy when another girl is introduced into theirfriendship group. It happens.) This would also successfully establish Esther as the villainof the film because people will feel hostile feelings towards her as her intrusion willsurface old feelings of jealousy they may have experienced.
Revision.Something teenagers of around our age group (16-17) will be ableto relate to is that Jess is revising for school/or doing homework.It’s never established which she is doing but the jist is clear. This isrelatable to all teens because of work they have to do inSchool/College/University especially now with Exam week comingup.
Religion.I wasn’t sure whether to mention this point or not but Im going to because it may be valid. The only religion we’ve shown within our piece is Satanism however that may make our film relatable/appealing to...well Satanists. However it may have the opposite effect on Christians because they don’t appreciate Satanism (which makes sense). Some may even be offended by our use of the satanic ritual and demonic signifiers.
