Official Trailer - VENGEANCE

Final Ancillary Tasks

My Contribution To The Project

What I did on this project was I organised the costume which people would wear, e.g. the victims in normal clothing and the killer to have a hoody and wear black so the characters have some sort of representation of who they are. I also was in charge of props such as the knife and the use of blood so the trailer has conventions of the horror genre. I also chose which song to use on the trailer; 'Marilyn Manson - Sweet Dreams'

In What Ways Does Your Media Product Use, Develop or Challenge Forms and Conventions of Real Media Products? - Evaluation

What have you learned from audience feedback? - Evaluation

The results i recieved from my questionnaires (open and closed) were very helpful. It gave me an understanding of what things worked best; like song choice and camera angles. It also helped make changes to what was weak with the trailer; the length of it and leaving deaths on a cliif hanger.

In my trailer i have used characters who are similar to the age of the target audience; I used the theory of McQuail, Bulmer and Katz' theory of Uses and Gratifictions. The audience may feel relations to some of the characters for example we use drugs which some teenagers may be experimenting with. We use a hard rock soundtrack which will attract audiences of this music scene.

Horror Trailer Song

For our soundtrack for the movie we have decided to use 'Sweet Dreams' by 'Marilyn Manson' because the song is heavy rock so it goes with the Horror Genre and also the pace of the song also fits the pace of our horror trailer.
