Horror trailer evaluation.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Horror Evaluation For this particular project, we were asked to produce a horror trailer. We had to include original photography or an original video image. The purpose of my trailer is that I wanted to make it clear to the audience that the film genre was a horror film. I wanted to promote my film to the target audience which was an 18. I wanted the audience to see the film at the start of another horror film that was being watched in the cinema. I feel that this would promote the film as it would be showing my film to people who like the genre of my film. It would also go out to people over 18 as most horror films have a certificate of 18. I decided to make the film certificate of 18, as I feel it would have made the film seem scarier and more entertaining to the audience. I feel that the audience will know that my film is a horror as I will only show it in the cinema when people are watching other horror movies. A horror movie wouldn't be shown on the Disney channel or any other children's channels so that is why I feel they would know it is a horror movie. ...read more.

Middle

So as soon as the trailer begins, the audience are scared by the type of music that I have chosen. In the middle, when most of the narrative is over, I suddenly use a faster sound. I wanted to do this as I feel it would of scared the audience. The audience don't expect the music to come on. When they were watching it, they all jumped as if they didn't know that it was going to happen. That was what my aim was. I feel that I chose and placed the music successfully. People watch horror films so that they get an adrenaline rush. So that they can feel excited. They are curious about what will happen in the next scene. You could say that the people who watch horror film are like people who go to theme parks. They both want to get the same rush go through their body. I wanted to catch the audiences attention and make them believe what they were seeing. I did this by talking to them. "Don't forget." This was at the end of the trailer and I feel by talking to the audience, it makes them feel involved and part of the trailer. ...read more.

Conclusion

This is a good setting because if it includes all of these factors, then the audience will be scared as soon as they see the setting. My trailer was unusual and mysterious as it was an abandoned school. Overall, I think that I have successfully completed what I was asked to do which was to construct a horror movie trailer and include all of the codes and conventions that are usually in a horror movie. I feel that the only thing that I could improve was how long the actual trailer was. When my fellow class mates were watching it, it seemed to go on forever. It seemed far too long and near the end, the audience seemed to lose their concentration. So I think that I could have made it a bit shorter. I have learned what exactly I need to put into a horror trailer. You have to decide on the type of font to use, what colours to use, what music to use and many other things. Before, I thought it was going to be easy but then I realised it was much harder. All in all, I feel very proud of my trailer and think I completed the task effectively. ...read more.
