When looking at the questionnaires we did, the audience feedback was very keen on the idea of plot twists which is good because the plot twist of him being stuck in limbo and not dead ‘yet’. My team and I want to look more at the narrative of our story and how we can twist the narrative, making it less generic and more drawing towards our target audience.
When looking at the audience feedback for genres, it was very clear that people liked comedy and romance the most. We want to use these genres for our main idea, as the sub genres of our memories/throwbacks are all different. Some will be funny and some will be romantic and others will be sad. Because we want look at someones full life story and that means representing the bad bits of someones life swell as the good bits.
When looking at whats good within a movie and audiences look at when watching a movie, we saw that the characters is a very large influence on audiences viewing a film/sort film. This means we have to think about the way we show the narrative of the characters and the development of characters emotional and through their age will influence the audience emotionally as they have connections with the characters, sharing similar experiences.
When deciding what memories we were going to use during our short film, we wanted audience feedback so we decided we got together a group of 12 people who are our target audience and let them choose 4 of their favourite memories. This is the out come:
My group and I have decided to look at what memories we wish to portray within our memories part of the short story. We thought as many ideas that people remember from their childhood/teen age, we decided to write them down and record ourselves. WE are going to do a audience feedback to decide on the memories we are going to use.
