- 1. Audience Research Interviews
By Nowar Yacoub
Candidate No: 5559
I conducted interviews in relation to my pre-production audience research, for which I surveyed a group of A level Media Studies students; equally divided amongst each gender.
The questions were mainly directed to the interviewees opinions on the Indie Genre and what typical codes & convention it entails, so that I could identify them and apply them to my production.
I picked out the best answer for each question from the range of candidates that were interviewed.
3. Questioning the Audience
Prior to the actual questioning, I carried out some research into pre-production audience research and came up with the following conclusions;
The point of the research is to acknowledge what appeals to the intended target audience. Then use this information to develop and enhance ideas, then determine whether ideas are achievable. In addition to this it allows you to configure and assess the Stereotypical representations, as well as decoding thecodes & conventions.
The targeted audience themselves should be an appropriately intended audience, who are individuals willing to answer in detail and are non-bias, this shows the examiner the engagement developed within the topic.
