Extracts from this document...


PRACTICAL PRODUCTION - SUPPORTING ACCOUNT Context and Purpose What is your product? What is it for? What is its function? (To inform? To entertain? To provoke debate?) Where does it belong? (eg "We considered making an item for the regional news programme, which is shown after the national news each evening") For our practical production we have produced a trailer for a movie we have written which is called "Samara's Doubles".

The negative comments included advice about how we could have improved the set or our trailer and the acting or the actors. There were criticisms such as how we could have used different effects for the trailer and also that we could have improved on the editing.
