Trailer Questionnaire Results

  1. 1. Questionnaire Results Film trailer
  2. 2. 1. For you, which features make a film scary? A. Jumpy B. gory C. unrealistic D. realistic E. Supernatural F. other A B C D E F The results here showed a clear preference for jumpy and gory films, in order to make it scary. Unrealistic horror films were least favoured, perhaps as viewers are unable to relate. The results confirm that when I carry out my planning, I should try and include these features, creating gory scenes and jumpy shots. This will allow it to be as effective as possible, reaching out to a wider audience.
  3. 3. 2. What in a trailer would attract you to watch a film? A. Famous Actors B. reviews C. title D. certificate E. Music F. mise-en scene G. other A B C D E F G The participants chose famous actors as their favourite, with reviews coming second. Using recognisable actors/actresses will attract attention as the more celebrities involved, normally means a better film. The other options were all equally important, with several votes each. In general the votes are fairly close, meaning no one option is drastically more important than the other. However I will concentrate on promoting ‘famous’ actors using language such as ‘starring’.
  4. 4. 3. Would you prefer a past pace trailer with lots of shots, or slower with minimal shots? FAST SLOW Around 65% of the participants found a slow paced thriller trailer more effective than a slow one. A slow paced one can create suspense and a sense of eeriness. I will consider this when creating my trailer.
  5. 5. 5. Would you prefer no back ground music and just natural sounds? No Music Music 75% of participants preferred trailers with background music. This is a clear favourite, with ¾ of the vote i will obviously implement this into my trailer. Once I’ve planned my storyboard and general theme I will chose a song that will fit the trailer.
  6. 6. 6. Which background noises do you think best suit a scary film? (circle 2) A. Screaming B. Children laughing C. Windtrees D. Gates squeaking E. Birds squawking 0 5 10 15 20 25 Screams Laughing Wind Gates Birds As I requested the participants chose two options, It gave me a clearer distinction between the options given. In this case they favoured screams and children’s laughter over other choices. Using these noises in my trailer will help to create a chilling theme, reaching to my desired target audience. I may use the other sound effects if they fit into the context of my trailer, but I wont intentional plot my story around them.
  7. 7. 8. Which settings would you prefer if created with a spooky effect? (circle 2) A. Forestry B.Church C. empty room D. hospital E.Alley way F. closet G.old house 0 2 4 6 8 10 12 14 16 A B C D E F G This question was given a range of option, so I asked participants to chose two as it may not have created a distinctive favourite. Participants chose an old house as their favourite location, with forestry coming up second. The other choices had equal scores, with a closet being the least favourite. These results show me the best location in order to create the thriller scene I’m looking for. However I will be limited as I may not be able to access these areas when filming.
  8. 8. 9. Which is most effective to play the role of the villain? A. Young girl B. young boy C. attractive male D. attractive female E. old male F. old female G. deformed human H. strange creature A B C D E F As the pie chart shows, in this case there is no clear favourite or preference to the most effective villain. I assume this is as it varies from different films, how the character is represented, and the context it is placed in. A young male has been voted as the favourite, however it isn’t by a big majority. I have a limited choice of actors and actresses I can use, and as the results show no clear need for a specific character I will use the best actor to fit my storyline.
  9. 9. 10. What helps create a scary character? (circle 2) A. Blood B. scars C. weapons D. powers E. hair F. make up G. clothing H. Their voice I. Lighting 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 A B C D E F G H I The results from this question showed several favourites, blood, hair, makeup and clothing. These are all things I am in control of, so I will focus on making these few features fit the theme to create a ‘scary’ character. In the planning process I will specify what I will dress my characters in and how I will present them . The use of blood clearly would represent murder, presenting viewers with a dangerous character. Therefore I will include some blood/gory scenes .
  10. 10. 12. Place in order which features you feel are most important to include? A. Title B. release date C. reviews D. certificate E. punch line F. insight to film From analysing the results, participants felt that the most important feature to include was an insight to the film, followed by the title, release date, reviews, punch line, and lastly the certificate. Therefore I will consider this order when prioritising what I will include. I will put a majority of my effort into making the story line clear, and will include the other feautres, making the more important ones more noticeble.
