<ul><li>After conducting a questionnaire of 10 people from out target audience, we feel that we have very much met the standards of producing 3 high quality products. </li></ul><ul><li>A questionnaire is primed to allow you to gain feedback from your target audience based on their thoughts and opinions of the products. It allows key information to be given back to you by the people who you are targeting the product at, such as: </li></ul><ul><li>Identify the strengths of the products </li></ul><ul><li>Identify the weaknesses of the products </li></ul><ul><li>Potential room for improvement </li></ul><ul><li>Through an analysis of the questionnaire we are able to identify overall how much of a success the products were in terms of conventionally and structurally. </li></ul><ul><li>This Slideshare will show the analysis of key questions that we asked in our questionnaire. </li></ul>
As we expected to hear from our target audience, the whole sample of people said that the teaser trailer fits the conventions of the action genre very well. However, the reason for this were different as people analyzed the teaser trailer from different perspectives. Some of the reasons were: The use of weapons, explosives and fights scenes complimented the actions of the characters well. This therefore keeps the audience guessing as to what may happen next, building suspense and intensity.
The use of car chases was effective because it is a form of action which shows that the film is going to be fast paced and unpredictable as an action should be. The use of hostages being kept and strapped with bombs fits the conventions as it raises even more awareness and unpredictability as to whether they will be saved, killed or even escape. The non-diegetic score is fast paced leading up to fight scenes, therefore the actions on screen such as the fights are complimented nicely with the sound. It is conventional therefore we feel that these conventions combine together, exploring the aspects of a action genre.
Again as we expected the whole of the sample agreed that the magazine cover was conventionally structured. The reasons for this varied from the use of teasers attracting others to view inside the rest of the magazine to the use of a Masthead which we called ‘Cinematic.’ As well as this the use of a splash, ‘Adcock and Brunton are Hunted” and simple features like the price and barcode also allowed the audience to distinguish this from the poster. This we feel was a result of in depth research into the conventions of form of an action magazine cover.
Would you be able to interpret or have an idea about what happens in the narrative from the Poster if you had not seen the trailer? This question we feel was very key as it indicates to us how well we constructed the poster in relation to the teaser trailer. Furthermore, how well they link together as media products. A majority of the audience did state to us through the question that this was the case whereby they would be able to interpret the narrative as close to what it actually is, however, there were some issues regarding characters potential roles and what there part in the narrative would be.
<ul><li>REASONS WHY THE AUDIENCE HAVE SAID YES AND NO: </li></ul><ul><li>To begin with, the audience felt that the centralization of Agent Mike’s position suggested to them that he was the hero, whereby he is very much involved within the narrative and ends up shooting the character behind him, who was Agent Luke. However, those who said no did say that there were unable to identify Agent Luke as both hero nor villain. Therefore they were unable to say whether his role was significant or not. We feel that we have shown the enigma significantly within the poster to show the unpredictability of the narrative. </li></ul>Furthermore, an area which we did struggle to show was the theme of terrorism because of our failure to put the terrorist in the poster, therefore some of our audience said that they would not have been able to tell that a terrorist was involved in the narrative if they had not seen the trailer. However, some of audience did pick up on the ideological assumptions that terrorism is involved with hostages ad therefore did say that Agent mike was shooting at the terrorist. Again this was to leave Agent Luke to play an enigmatic role as some of our audience where unable to justify his role as hero or villain.
As well as this, our audience did pick up on the fact that the hostages were behind Agent Mike, which suggested to them that he was protecting them. The main reason for this thought was due to the positioning of the characters on the poster and the connotations that it brought. For example, Agent Mike is powerful and strong and as his character is in front of the hostages, it suggests that they are weak and have to be protected by Agent mike.
