Here are some screenshots I have made from our final edit. The reason I chose these moments of the opening scene is because I believe that these are the most attracting scenes to our target audience. Below, I will explain each screenshot and I will explain how and why I think it is attracting to our target audience.
I think this is attracting to the audience because it is tension building ident. This suits the rom-com genre and it portrays many meanings. The name ‘chance productions’ is an effective name because it gives our target audience a feeling of thrill and excitement to find out what happens next in our movie. The cards flying out of the hand and the heart beat effect creates, even more, excitement and it makes our target audience feel like the choices and chances that come along in our film are important and thrilling. Our ident gives our target audience what our movie is like and how tension building it is.
This is a shot of one of the settings of our opening scene. I thought this was attracting to our target audience member because it shows them that this movie is about high school. This gives them the feeling that they will be able to relate to the drama and humour that happens within this school or opening scene. They also feel more connected to the opening scene because our target audience is roughly the same age as the characters in our Rom Com.
I believe that both of these shots are attracting to our audience because this is the first time they see our four main characters. Their first impressions of these four characters are important and it influences the attitude the audience has towards them. This is the main focus of the opening scene; the characters and their personas. Since our target audience is teenage girls, I think the scene of Jake and Cameron walking together is engaging because one of the stereotypes of a teenage Rom Com is that there is always a ‘hot’ boy in it and I believe that that is what our target audience looks forward to seeing.
I made the font that style because I wanted it to suit the Rom-Com genre but still be humorful. The colour makes it cheesy but that is what Rom-Com is all about. This is attracting to our audience because they know, through the title, that there will be a sense of tension and drama in the movie, which is what they love. The title is also a broad title. It could define the story in many different ways, e.g. perhaps the movie is about third-wheeling, or about someone cheating on someone with an enemy or a best friend. This is why I thought it is a highlight of the opening scene because it creates a hunger for the target audience to find out what it is really about.
Like I have said, I believe that our target audience looks forward to seeing the ‘hot’ teenage popular boy, so this scene is ‘eye candy’ to them because they get a good view of him and they see what he is like. In this shot, you can see that Jake is ‘too cool for school’ and he does not care about anything. This is attracting to our target audience because they will either be head over heels about him and his ‘hotness’ or they will not like him and his arrogance at all.
I think these two shots are two of the most important scenes. These are the most attracting to the target audience because they contain humour and they are relatable to everyone. These teenage girls are obsessed with boys and pretty much all of them want a boyfriend so they relate to Ashley’s character. Especially when Ashely tries to get closer to Jake and he sort of rejects her by moving away from her. I am certain that everyone has been rejected by their crush in some way, so this scene engages the audience and it catches their attention.
These two shots are engaging because our audience can clearly see how careless Jake is about Ashley and her feelings. This creates tension and it is a cliffhanger. The audience will then want to know what happens to their relationship and the relationship between.
