WITH CLOSE REFERENCE TO THE FILMS "PSYCHO" AND "THE BIRDS" SHOW HOW ALFRED HITCHCOCK REACHED A SPECIFIC TARGET AUDIENCE.
For this piece of coursework I am going to compare and contrast two Alfred Hitchcock Films in order to show how Hitchcock reached a specific target audience. The films, to which I will be referring are 'Psycho (1960)' and 'The Birds (1963)', I will illustrate the techniques, which the director (Alfred Hitchcock) used to appeal to specific audiences. In particular I will be paying close attention to "the shower scene" from "Psycho" and "the school scene" from "The Birds".
I will firstly give you an overview of what happens in each film. "Psycho" is a horror/thriller. It stars Janet Leigh, John Gavin, and Anthony Perkins. Marion Crane (Janet Leigh) is an office worker from Phoenix who is in a relationship with Sam (John Gavin). She is asked by her employer to deposit £40,000 dollars (a great amount of money at the time when the film was made) in a bank. Since she is unhappy with life due to the fact that she has to meet Sam in secret, she decides to take the money and start a new life.
