EVALUATION QUESTION ONEIn what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?
MY PRODUCT > USE > REAL PRODUCTS From my target audience research they said one of the main words that popedinto there head when they hear the word “vampire” is Blood. This clarified my thoughts on what aspects of a vampire I want to keep and what Iwant to challenge. I kept in the blood as the audience said that’s what they would expect to see. I didthis because I do want to challenge older vampire movies but some aspectsneeded to stay the same, to classify it as a vampire film.
MY PRODUCT > DEVELOP > REAL PRODUCT My film hasnt really developedVampire Horror films as a genre as my main aimwas not to show Bram Stokers “Vampire Journey” but to change it and dosomething new.
MY PRODUCT >CHALLENGE > REAL PRODUCTS My movie deffinatly challenges other vampire films such as Nosferatu. Nosferatu is based on the Bram Stoker novel. And I felt after this movie and manyother similar movies there needed to be a change on the classic. So I took thebasic themes and adapted them into how vampires would have to live if they livedin the 21st century.That was when my movie was born. A lot of vampire films are very fantasy based and unnatural. I wanted to create aworld that was very real/natural and would be exactly the same as now but theonly difference is the vampires.
MY PRODUCTVS. REAL PRODUCTS I feel my movie looks professional through the camera work, mise en scene,editing and sound and that the story line is good enough for a professional film.
