Certificate research done

  1. 1. Certificate research12/12AThis rating means that anybody aged 12 or over can view the film12A mean that anybody under the age of 12 that is accompanied by an adult canview the film.Films rated 12 can contain:Only moderate violence is allowed but you can’t focus on the violence.Sex can be briefly shown but it has to be discreetDrugs can’t be glamorizedHorror films can be passed as 12 but they can only contain moderate physicaland psychological threat.This rating would be good for film because I have found out from previous filmresearch that films rated 12 are viewed much more than films rated 15 or18.This would give our film a wider audience therefore making it more successfulhowever the psychological treat would have to be moderate which would behare to do as our film is a psychological thriller.15This rating means that nobody under the age of 15 is allowed to view the filmFilms rated 15 can contain:Can contain strong violenceThere can be strong language and it can be frequentDrug use can be shown (can’t promote drug use)
