Media Evaluation- Question 3 Part 2

Published March 7, 2012 by Shanice Butler A2 Media Studies

I really like how positive my comments are for each of my products and I can see that I have improved since my drafts. I also like the fact that my target audience would actually go and see it which means I have fulfilled my plan of creating a film where it would interest them. Even though it’s rated PG, I have found that many young teenagers and adults would consider seeing the film and that this is because I have decided to follow a more edgy direction with the use of dark make up and vibrant colours which was pointed out by one person.

After I showed my completed film trailer to members of my target audience, They all had similar views and said the following things:

‘Wow! The music you have used is really gripping and I like how you have timed it with what is happening in the trailer.’
‘I think that one thing you could do to improve it is add more clips and include a variety of shots so that it is longer and fast paced.’
 ‘Your actors  are really believable characters which makes it seem professional. I would see it if this was in the cinema.’
‘I can tell your genre is Fantasy because of the costume used and the shot where your character is wearing a red cloak got me intrigued.’
‘I love that you have directed the titles at the audience to makes us more involved.’

How effective is the combination of your main product and ancillary texts?

Below I have created some Voki avatars using the website to answer this question as well as analysing my print pieces so far. Voki provides animated characters that when you type in your text and select the type of voice you want it to have, they can then speak it, making a fun, interactive media tool.

The film trailer I have created is linked quite well with both of the ancillary products due to the colour scheme I have applied to the text and the titles throughout the trailer which is for the purpose of making the audience more involved and will therefore make them want to see it.
