Evaluation Question 4

Evaluation Question 4: Who would be the audience for your media product?

The target audience for our media product would be for 15-24 year olds because of the part in our film when the man starts sniffing the girls underwear connoting a sexual reference, therefore it would be for an older audience. Also the language and gore within it which would be for an older audience. Later in the film there were plans for it to get worse but just for the opening we would keep it for the audience of 15-24. There is a post here which backs up what I said in a bit more detail and gives links to the BBFC website which has the guidelines for the age ranges of films.

 The age range of both the actors is within this age bracket and therefore it would attract similar ages to the actors, the sexual references however would appeal more to a male audience because of the male gaze but also that stereotypical males prefer horror, as a contrast to girls which stereotypically prefer rom-coms. However with the twist in our film, having the girl as being the killer would appeal to a larger female market because they will want to see and find out what happens; but also men like women that can fight and would therefore love it (for example Lara Croft, a perfect example of a killer that is solely made for the male gaze audience)We took this into consideration and therefore we thought we went with the appropriate age bracket. The age of the girl is connoted by the exam timetables which are on the wardrobe as the man walks into the room, this can link to the audience of the film.
