Audience Research



This slideshow requires JavaScript.

My group and I decided to create a questionnaire to help plan our media opening sequence. we created questions based around thriller films, the themes in thriller films, characters and how audiences reacts to thriller films. One thing we found from our research is that the audiences favourite thing about thriller films is the suspense created and the mystery. From this we will try to include suspense and mystery throughout out our opening sequence. Another thing we also found out was that the audiences favourite film overall was Taken. From this we will adapt our opening sequence and take ideas from Taken and incorporate in to our film.
