  • 2. CONCEPT- at least 3 similar film comparisonsThe Woman In BlackThe Woman In Black is a comparisonto our film orphanage, because it is atale about an abandoned hauntedhouse. We are also planning oncreating a few minutes of eerienatural sounds to add to our shortfilm, we have seen it work in TheWoman in Black as a great deal of thescares in the film are based aroundloud and frightening music.
  • 3. CONCEPT- at least 3 similar film comparisonsWhat Lies BeneathWhat Lies Beneath is a very goodcomparison to our production,Orphanage. This is because WhatLies Beneath is a supernatural storyabout a woman that believes thather house is haunted by the ghost ofher next door neighbor. It has the feelof a murder mystery however it hasthe added fright factor of the ghostvictim returning from her waterygrave.
  • 4. CONCEPT- at least 3 similar film comparisonsThe pactThe pact is once again a hauntedhouse style film. The plot is about ayoung womans chilling experience inher childhood home following thedeath of her mother builds terrorwithin a fascinating mystery as thewoman uncovers the secrets in hermothers past.
  • 5. AUDIENCE PROFILE- who are you aiming it at- gender? Age etcFor our short film Orphanage we have decided that our target audiencewould be males and females aged between 15-28. We decided on thisspecific age boundary because its the one that we felt we could create afilm to match our audience expectations.We want to implement sound and camera angles to create our scares, aswell as some scary sections in the film. The 15-28 target audience agerelates to this because we also wanted our audience to be mature enoughto understand the content and the underlying story to our film.We decided to aim our film at both genders because otherwise wed besignificantly cutting down the already low numbers of our audience, andobviously we want our film to be seen as much as possible. Aiming our filmat both genders also means that we can include more ideas and twists tothe plot as we have different audience expectations to meet.Location will be a factor to our audience, as because its a short film it isntgoing to appear in cinemas or on t.v. etc, were looking to display it at filmfestivals so our audience numbers will be reduced significantly because ofthat. However we expected this because of the length and nature of ourfilm (student film).Income is not an audience factor because all showcases of Orphanage willbe free.
