What age group do you feel my trailer isWhat age group do you feel my trailer is
aimed at?aimed at?
Before showing a group of twenty people my trailer, I asked them what age
group they think it is aimed at, to my satisfaction the majority of them
answered 15-20 year olds which is in fact my target audience. This has
shown me that my trailer has been made to successfully appeal to my
target audience. The people who watched my trailer were all a variety of
ages and a mixture of genders so that the results I received were as fair
and accurate as they can be.
As well as that, I then asked a few people what age certificate they would
give the film and again to my satisfaction nearly all of them answered 15. I
have attached a video that I recorded of a 17 year old Oliver Dyer saying
that he thinks it should be a 15.

I then asked the same twenty people whether they felt that the trailer
successfully showed its horror genre, again to my satisfaction nearly
everyone answered ‘yes’ which shows me that it is obvious what my
trailers theme was and I successfully made it scary. However, ideally I
would like everyone to answer ‘yes’ which wasn’t the case, therefore this
has taught me that if I was to get the chance to create a horror trailer then,
next time I would include a few more scary scenes and add a few more
effects to exaggerate the spookiness of my trailer.
As well as that, I feel that I could have used better sound effects which
really exaggerated my trailers theme, I feel that I could have improved this
area of my trailer and would a wider variety of sounds and music as I feel
this would make the trailer better and enhance its overall scariness.
What would you rate the trailer out of 10?

I also asked the same people what they would rate my trailer out of ten,
ten being the highest and best answer and one being the lowest. I was
pleased to see that everyone answered above half way meaning that
overall my trailer was rather successful. However, although I was pleased
to see that most people rated my trailer a 7 out of 10, I would rather receive
a higher score, therefore this has taught me that there is still room to
improve on my trailer and that there are a few things that I would need to
do in order to perfect my trailer.

I then asked the same people whether they thought the editing of the
trailer was effective, again I was pleased to see that the majority of people
answered ‘yes’ this showed me that I had edited my trailer rather
successfully and that people were impressed with my work. However, not
everyone said yes which has shown me that if I was to do this project
again I could improve the editing on my trailer and make it look slightly
more professional. I feel that this has also shown me that the editing of a
trailer is a very important and vital stage of a successful trailer, therefore I
would spend more time working on the editing of my trailer if I was to do
the trailer again.

I then asked them whether they felt there is room for improvement in my
trailer, to my dismay most people replied ‘yes’ which has shown me that
my trailer is not the best that it could be, therefore there is room for
improvement so if I had to do this project again I would change many
things to make it better and more successful.
I wasn’t 100% satisfied with my trailer, therefore this criticism has added to
my unimpressed feelings towards my trailer. I feel that I should have spent
more time on the editing of my trailer, as well as that I would have liked to
add a few more clips that were a little scarier to make my trailer more
creepy and for its theme of horror to be clearer.

I then asked them what their opinion was on the length of my trailer, I
asked them this as I wanted to see whether it was too long or short so that
I could see where I could improve if I was to make a trailer again in the
future. I found that some people said that they felt the trailer was a little
too long, however the most common answer was that it’s length was just
right. Therefore this has taught me that my trailers length was ideal and
wasn’t too long for people to watch and they were still intrigued by the
trailer and it wasn’t too short and didn’t show enough. However like I have
previously said, I wish that I had made some of the scenes slightly scarier
and if given the chance I would have improved the editing of my trailer

After that I asked them whether they thought that the storyline of my trailer
was clear, I asked them this as I wanted to make sure that my trailer was
clear and easy to understand as this is a very important feature when
creating a trailer. When receiving the feedback I found that most people
said that yes the trailer was clear, however I would have ideally preferred it
if everyone answered yes not just over half of the people asked. This has
therefore taught me that I could have made the storyline a little clearer, I
could have done this by either adding in more text scenes or by adding
more scenes at the start of my trailer which made it more obvious what
was going on.

Finally I asked the same people whether they felt that the sound effects
that I used went well with my trailer, over three quarters of the people I
asked answered ‘yes’ which was pleasing to see, however it has taught me
that I could have made my trailer a little better by spending more time on
finding better sounds to use and spending a little time on the overall
editing of my trailer.
Overall, I am happy with the feedback from my random audience as it has
mainly been positive answers that have benefited me massively, however I
can also see that there is room for me to improve my trailer and that there
are parts that aren’t as good as they could be, therefore if given the
chance to do this project again, I would spend more time on the
construction and editing stage of my trailer and would have made it as
professional as I could by using better sound effects and adding in
