A small percentage of people like a drama film to end tragically and ours will. We will do our best to try and fit a twist into the end.
There is definitely a lot of actions and emotions in our film which the audience want, however death is what they least want. But, we don’t want to change the death in out film because we want to shock the audience and finish with a dramatic ending.
A high majority of the audience want young adults to be in the film and just a few want over 25. our initial target audience was within the 18-25 year group which is what the majority of the audience want.
Our film will have a lot of high drama moments or emotional moments
We will work on maybe having a good twist in our film. We don’t know if we can bring in any comical lines because this film is based on a serious and horrible eventWe also don’t know if we can fit romance into it. If we did the film would be ruined!The film will already be very emotional
The majority want their main character to be male which our main character is.
