Who would be the audience for my media product ?<br />
Target Audience: Age<br />As my film is classified as a '18' all above 18+ would watch my film but specifically my media product is targeted at mainly 18-24's as from a survey conducted I have found out that psychological thrillers are mostly viewed by 18-24's :<br />This survey indicates that mostly 18-24's would watch thrillers and this fits the conventions of psychological thrillers as from my research I established that most thrillers are 18+ as of scenes of graphic violence e.t.c. So if my film was targeted at another age it would go against the conventions of psychological thrillers.<br />
Target Audience: Gender<br /><ul><li>Psychological thrillers also seem to be more favorable towards females which is indicated in this survey conducted by the national metro : </li></ul>This survey seems to go against the common cultural representations of Females in the media who often shown to be faint-hearted, passive e.t.c and from these common representations you would expect females not to be the common viewers of thrillers. <br />
