Question 5

  1. 1. HOW DID YOU ATTRACT/ADDRESS YOUR AUDIENCE? Research and Planning
  2. 2. GENRE RESEARCH My genre research allowed me to identify the conventions of horror films. I found out some of the most stereotypical horror imagery includes blood, fire, silhouettes, close-ups etc. Because of this, I was determined to include the specified imagery in my film opening because my target audience are mainstream horror fans, who will be enticed by the stereotypical, mainstream horror imagery.
  3. 3. MISE-EN-SCÈNE RESEARCH Another way I aimed to draw in my target audience is through the use of low-key lighting. I used low-key lighting in my film opening because my mise-en-scène research encouraged me that low-key lighting was the most common and most effective kind of lighting for horror films, as it adds drama and eeriness. Therefore, my mainstream horror fan target audience will pick up on the convention of low-key lighting, indicating that my film is perfect for them.
  4. 4. PRIMARY AUDIENCE RESEARCH Similarly to the genre research, my primary audience research helped me to draw conclusions about using stereotypical horror imagery. When interviewing my target audience, I found they responded much better to stereotypical imagery like blood, fire and silhouettes, as they felt this kind of imagery was much more effective at connoting the genre. Due to this, I decided to include stereotypical imagery in my film opening, in the hope that my target audience would be drawn in by it.
