WHY WILL THIS NARRATIVE WORK?
I believe that this narrative will work as it covers a variety of current issues that people
have to deal with everyday. In particular bereavement, as it’s something that everyone
will go through and therefore the audience will be able to relate to it and feel empathy
towards the characters. A main focus in the film is homosexuality and both children
and parents will be able to relate to this, especially children as they’re becoming more
and more aware of homosexuality today. Even if the audience aren’t homosexual
themselves it will give them a greater insight to what they get put through in everyday
life. It will allow the audience to understand their emotions and will help towards the
discrimination they go through and will hopefully influence more people to be more
accepting of others.
SHORT FILMS THAT HAVE INFLUENCED MY WORK
• I Don’t Care: although my narrative doesn’t include disability it relates of how people are seen
differently and treated differently. It shows how that even thought they’re seen differently they are
still loved and have a strong relationship with family members, this has inspired my narrative of
how there’s a strong relationship between Jade and her mother even through she’s adopted and
• Jam: the theme of how the young people want to change who they are just to impress a girl or
boy. It has influence my narrative of how just because you’re different and some people don’t
accept you for who you are, you shouldn’t change, carries the message of being yourself.
• Throw me to the Dogs: the idea of how some people accept you for who you are and some
don’t, people do suffer and do get bullied because of it. It has influenced my narrative because it
gave the idea of including a main issue that young people go through and therefore can relate to
it and will hopefully give the audience an insight of what they have to go through.
POTENTIAL TARGET AUDIENCE
Gender: the primary audience will be females because of all the characters being
female but a male audience will also be target as they may be able to relate to parts of
the storyline as well, they’ll be known as the secondary audience.
Age: teenagers will be the primary target audience because they will be the ones who
will be able to relate to the main character’s (Jade) emotions as they’re of the similar
Social Class: a combination of B, C1 and C2 because these are the most likely to have a
understanding of the social issues that are in the narrative.
