My two minute film opening is an urban, British social realism genre movieas it is similar to ‘Attack The Block’ which was released in 2011. Attack TheBlock is an urban genre movie that depicts the lively hood of teenagers inLondon. Moreover, the highest percentage of all the age groups was 48% in(15 to 24). This show that 48% of the audience are from 15-24.
How did you attractyour audience?I have attracted my audience in many ways for examplethrough:• Dialogue•Costume• Music• Similar lifestyles of other Movies e.g. Kidulthood, Attackthe block• Story Line• Urban area setting

Young teenagers can relate to slang and I have used slang in my film openingthrough Raihan (actor). Raihan speaks to his friends when they come to pick himup from prison. This may attract my audience in watching this film as one of theReasons I went to watch ‘Anuvahood’ in the cinemas is because they have slangwords and portray the British youth culture. I was interested in this type of filmbecause I, as a youth living in London can relates to this type of movie.
Costume of the charactersThe clothing that is worn by the actors in ‘Wide Awake’ is street wear generallyworn by the average teenagers living in East London, you can identify what anteenager wears and the clothing and understand the ideology underpinning thetext. For example, Raihan wears tracksuit and a hoody which signifies that he is aStreet boy and hangs around the streets, and another character is Moshin whowears a suit which is Mysterious and looks rich and seems powerful. Youths aspireto this, because they want to be wealthy and Moshin is like a ‘Boss’ because hewas like Raihan before and now has changed in to a wealthy man.Other clothings are tracksuits, trainers, jeans and jackets which typically youthswear. This will attract the audience because it’ll make the audience see the realismof the movie through the clothing of the actors.
This is a picture from the film ‘Anuvahood’ which was also based in London.There was a lot of audience who watched that film who where the age from 15-25, this may attracted the audience from the costume which the actor AdamDeacon wore tracksuit bottoms and Track top and the language he spoke wasin Slang. As previously i went to watch this film because it was an film thatinterests because it makes me feel like they are like me. This is why I havemade my character Raihan wear Track suit bottoms and a jacket which makeshim look like a young teenager, and it will attract audience who are teenagers
Music of the MovieThe music that I have used for my opening of an movie falls in to thegenre of grime attracting the target audience as it has fast beats whichmakes the film more serious and realistic. It also builds up tension whichthe youths may find it as an adventure in East London and may want towatch it. The music creates an atmosphere which is in East London andmakes it seem its in East London. The Music seems like somethingcurious is going to happen and makes the audience keep wanting tocarry on watching the Movie if I had to finish off the full movie.
Attack The Block‘Attack the block’ has got similar conventions for example thecostumes such as Hoods, Tracksuits and the Slang and its set inUrban London, so this is why I think that I will have similar audience to‘Attack the block’. They use the same language as the language thatwe used in our two minutes of an movie which is slang. Attack theblock has audience which the age groups are from 15-24 as its gotyoung teenagers who are acting in the Film and makes the audiencemay want to watch it. This is why I think I will have more audience fromthe range 15-24 because the Actors which are young teenagers andits about Urban crime and this is what Young teenagers like watchingfor example, wealth, and crime issues. The Film ‘Attack the Block’ has more Males watching it rather than Females as females may not want to watch ‘Violent’ words or not may not want to watch crime.
Narrative of the MovieThe Narrative of this Movie is that Raihan comes out of Prison after beingsentenced for 6years for being framed and came out thinking to change hislife, but before he wants to change and he wants to find out who framedhim for what he has done, so he gets an phone call to meet a Boss whoknows who has framed Raihan and he has all the information. This attractsand addresss our audience because its about Crime and the audience likewatching like this stuff because it could happen in reality and makes it lookrealistic, and for the secondary audience who may not know what life’s likethese teenagers.
SettingThe setting for this movie is in East London which is an Urban area whichis similar to other Urban films such as Kidulthood, Adulthood, AnotherHood and Also Attack the Block. This may interest audience becausethey’ll think that its in London and may want to know what is happening.Other people who don’t live in London and who may live outside of Londonmay want to watch a film which is based in London and this may attract theaudience. One of scene that I recorded was in Millennium Bridge andwhich it gave a great scene and a mysterious scene because one of thecharacters was in Dockland and one character near River Thames, andgives an great attraction to the audience.
Titles/Editin gI had to chose an effective Title for my Movie because the audience that I thoughtin mind was from 15 to 25 and it had to have an serious look to the film because itwas an Film which there was going to have crime and make the titles go along withthe music and have a tense look. The Title that I have used had a ‘Lighting effect’which goes with my name of the film ‘Wide Awake’ as being awake which is brightso I gave a bright title. The Black signifies something bad is about to happen in themovie, so this is why I have used that colour and made it look mysterious and tensebecause straight after the title the scene of Raihan getting arrested comes so this iswhy it will attract the audience.
