Evaluation question 4

Who would be the audience for your media product?

Our product would represent an audience mainly of 15-30 year olds as the topics used in the film may nt be suitable for anyone younger.The film may also attract people oder than 30 as it is a thriller film and many older people are attracted to the mystery element of the film. The actors used in the film also attract this age range of audience as they are familiar with actors suck as Kristen Stewart as she is popular with a teenage fanbase that may be inserted in coming to see the film.

Evaluation question 1

In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?

We deciced that the genre for our title sequence was thriller,we researched the general codes and conventions for a thriller film and discovered that thriller usually are framed on building tensions throughout.The antagonist is also often kept secret throughout the film until very late on. Many close up shots are used to show emotions of characters throughout the film.We decided to use many of the codes and conventions of thriller and make our title sequence very conventional and to go along with them throughout.The shots in out title sequence could be said to be conventional as they are very dark and quick which moves along with the story. WE made the shots black and white and included very intense music to move along the storyline and to make it feel even more intense.The montage scenes used make it clear to the audience that the main element of the plot was travel and finding something we used the montage to continually reminded the audience members of this.The props and miss-en-scene of the title sequence fitted with the thriller theme as we used fake police evidence folders and files to tell the audience that this was a reopening of a criminal case and that it had an involvement of the police in the plot without actually physically showing this.The handwritten typography continued with the theme of written things and the theme of the 

searching and making notes.The them kept to the codes and conventions of a thriller film also as we used a protagonist trying to catch and antagonist and used the common thriller elects of a missing person.

We decided to reshoot the main section of the title sequence as we felt that it did not really fit.After reading through feedback from our first cut viewing we realised that tight main bulk did not fit with the image we were trying to get across to the audience.We decided to change our setting and move to the dark room so that we could make it feel more eerie and creepy.This worked well as after putting all the clips together we could see that this was a better choice if setting for our piece.
