The target audience

Every trailer created is aimed at a target audience, If it didnt have a specific target market the trailer isnt going to encourge people to go watch the film the trailer is advertising.  The target audience for my trailer will primarily be people who have an interest in sport as the film trailer is generally portraying a spoof movie about golf. The trailer is also aimed at men more than women as men tend to have more of an interest in sport generally, also the film is more of a straight-up comedy, and looking at cinema viewing figures from 2008 men go to the cinema more than women with 20% of all males over the age 0f 7 going to the cinema at least once a month with the figure being 17% for females. Also the statistics indicated that teenagers and young adults visit the cinema most frequently. In the UK in 2008,  41% of those aged 15 to 24, along with 31% of those aged 7 to 14 and 22% of those aged 25 to 34, reported attending the cinema at least once a month. These statistics suggest the largest market is that of young people so i will adapt my trailer and film idea to be more appealing to a younger audience.

The point of making a trailer

Trailers are created by film companies in order to give potential viewers a preview of a film before it is released, Trailers consist of the most exciting and visually pleasing aspects of the upcoming film, trailers tell people who the main actors are in a film when the film will be released and what the film is about. This is important as people who see the trailer often talk about it and the film spreads by word of mouth, which leads to high anticipation for when the film is released into the cinema (even if the trailer was released months before the films release), so overall the trailer makes people aware of a film and is aimed at encouraged audiences to got to the cinema and watch the upcoming film.

Filming location ideas/photos

These are my photos from the primary locations in which i intend to shoot my film, i havent got any indoor photos as my trailer is about a golf movie , and not much golf is played indoors.  I have had to choose to shoot in a field as the nearest golf course were not keen on the idea of allowing us to film on their course.  So, overall these photos display areas where i intend to film scenes for my trailer.
