FINAL PRODUCT - TRAILER:
After handing out our questionnaires to a random sample of the target audience we took them back in and went through them to see what our findings were. Overall we found that our trailer was liked and would be seen by most of the target audience.
As well as generic questions we also gave the audience a specific question. In the pie carts below the copy of the questionnaire, pie number five represents the answer the question I asked the audience 'What do you think of the use of locations and props within the trailer'
As well as this we found out that most of the audience we asked would prefer the music to end before the final credits. We also made these adjustments to the trailer in order to further satisfy the audience.
Overall I feel that the audience feedback session went very well and help us to make some very good final adjustments to our trailer
As well as the theories mentioned above, i also found some quotes which can be related to our trailer.
John Fiske (1988) ‘attempts to structure some order into the wide range of texts and meanings that circulate in our culture for the convenience of both producers and audiences’
This quote relates the theory provided by Todarov as it relates to different stages within a piece of media, in this case the horror trailer. And as i have shown above our trailer does not follow the conventional steps to a trailer, but it does include them. This enables the audience to understand the media text but at the same time as being slightly confused
The main thing about being able to use a variety of websites is the fact that I have combined the process of ‘producing’ and ‘consuming’ in order to become a prosumer. This has gave me many advantages but the main one is me being able to produce a product at the same time as enjoying already existing ones, which also aided in production
