Evaluation Question Five

How did you attract/address your audience?

Our target audience is people between the ages of 15-24. This was decided after looking at the BBFC website. 

We attracted our audience in many different ways. Firstly we used narrative enigma because the identity of our killer is hidden. This causes the audience to question what is going on, and leave them thinking. We have hidden his identity through trying to keep him off screen for as long as possible. He is also wearing a mask so you cannot see his face. The preferred reading that we want the audience to follow is that the reason she gets 'killed' is because she has sinned. We also want to signify that her boyfriend has something to do with it. We see this when he reaches for his phone after she has left, and says the line 'Yeah, if you are lucky.' 

We have a predominantly Yorkshire cast and yorkshire setting of the country side. This may limit our target audience, but we have tried to include commonly used aspects of slasher films. For example we have used a 'scream queen.' We got the idea of our scream queen from 'Scream' with actress 'Drew Barrymore.' In most slasher films the 'scream queen' is usually killed, so we followed this idea when making our film. 

A way in which we gathered audience feedback wads through using the internet site Facebook. This allowed us to get audience feedback from people of our own age (our target audience). Also after uploading it onto youtube it gave us the chance to receive feedback from our secondary audience too.
