The genre of our teaser trailer is horror. Conventions of Horror:Iconography: Blood, Knifes, KillerCharacters: VictimSetting/Location: Dark forest, haunted house We chose this genre because we all enjoy horror films and thought we could use our knowledge of many horror films that we have watched to create good ideas.
Paranormal activity was a low budget Grave encounters was not as big afilm, with the use of super natural events paranormal activity at box office, howeverall happening in a haunted house of a has the same type of concept of superfamily. But only showing snippets of bits natural/ghostly events happening but in ain the teaser so u get the idea of the film. hospital.We will use these ideas but revise someideas to our own. (e.g: Uniaccommodation) Both of these examples try there best to make the horror film seem real so people believe it, and watch it with great interest. These examples of horror are going to be similar to our teaser trailer because we are going to have ‘paranormal activities’ and are going to base it on that type of film. This is where you have a protagonist but you don’t actually see them.
There are going to be 3 students that are going into their first year in university. They move into there new accommodation, However they are unaware that the house is haunted and then begin to experience super natural events that begin to freak them out, and it gets worse and worse the longer they stay there ad there is no escape.
15-24 The target audience that we are basing ours on is paranormal activity, this is because our trailer is going to be similar. The target audience for paranormal activity is from 15 – 24. Paranormal Activity The age certificate is going to be 15
