Focus Group• In our focus group we decided that we would have a selection of 15 students ranging from the age of 15-18. Within the focus group, we explained the idea of our video to them. This gave them an idea of what to expect for our opening sequence. All of the participants were asked what they thought of it, they said that they quite enjoyed the idea that we came up with. They also said that it was good and that after hearing about it, were looking forward to the release of the film. They said that the opening sequence seems like it will fit in well with the genre that we have chosen to do. We then got the focus group to fill out our questionnaires on the film. The results of this questionnaire was used as final feedback on our opening sequence and what we needed to do to complete it.
