Trailer analysis

  1. 1. Trailer analysis “Wolf Man”<br />
  2. 2. We are told the name of the film at the end of the trailer, I have realized that most horror films have the name of the film at the end of the trailer this may be because the director wants people to get attracted to the film first and then show the name at the end so that the audience remembers the name of the film because the audience may forget the name of the film while watching the scenes.<br />
  3. 3. we are told who are starring in the film because audience some time only watch the film if there favorite actor is acting or the actor is famous of staring in successful films. The information is given to us at the end of the clip. The color of the text goes with the theme of the trailer. Furthermore the names are given so that the audience remembers who are starring in the film <br />
  4. 4. In this trailer, we see a lot of action happening. There are people using guns a lot of blood, violence, killing. What we see in the trailer establishes that this is a horror film such as a man turning into a wolf when the full moon come ups, these things cannot happen in reality.<br />
  5. 5. Voice over <br />We can say that the voice over is very effective in this trailer. They use an old man's voice in the trailer, this maybe used to tell us that the film is set in the past. also the voice is very effective in telling us the story, this is because we tend to listen to what older people say as they are experienced and thus we listen to him as if we are listening to some telling us a story. Furthermore, a voice over is used to help the audience understand what is happening and to create a sense of mystery and interest.<br />
  6. 6. Rapid shots<br />The speed of a trailer is much faster then then a clip from the film. This because trailers tend to have rapid shots to engaged and to attract the audience. The use of the best bits of different scene of the film creates anticipation as the audience wants to know what’s going to happen next. The trailers use quick rapid shots to reach a climax and then end it with a black screen, this is because they want the audience to picture what could happen next and thus attracting the audience to come see the film in the cinemas.<br />
  7. 7. At the last part of the trailer we are given the information of the producer, director etc of the film. The release date is the last scene we see at the end of the trailer. This is because they want the audience to be drawn into the film before they tell them when the film is released, also by putting the release date at the end insures that the audience remember the release date.<br />
  8. 8. The trailer is more effective in making you want to watch the film. This is because the trailer gives you an insight of what the film is about, it gives u live scenes of the film where as, in a poster you have to assume what the film is about by looking at the title of the film and the picture on the poster.we would expect to see the trailer before film which are in similar genre. The reason being that the audience who are watching the film would be interested in another film with the same genre. However putting this trailer before a children s film will be inappropriate, as this will not be a film suitable for young children and furthermore this will be wrong target audience<br />
