Choosing the Poster

Before I chose Poster Idea #3 as the final poster for my film I wanted to make sure people agreed with me, so I took to Facebook to ask people opinions.

I did this by posting an album of the posters on Facebook and asking people to ‘like’ the one they liked the most and also commenting why they like it if they have time, as you can see below…

Here are the results I received…

The first poster idea received 4 likes suggesting it was moderately popular and that it appealed to some.

This poster idea only received 2 likes suggesting it was not as popular as the other two, despite Justin’s comment of liking ‘the colour scheme and the “loose talk cost lives”‘ I feel this poster was not as successful as the other two and thus should be discounted.

Poster 3 received 23 out of the 29 votes giving it a landslide victory and consolidated my opinion of which poster I should use for my film. Furthermore the comments below it also agreed with what I previously thought and really made me make my final decision

Overall doing this task has shown me that using social media to get peoples view is very handy. This has given me the confidence to say that Poster #3 is my firm choice for the one I will submit due to 23 other people agreeing with me.

Audience Feedback

audience feedback

Yesterday we showed a rough cut of our film to the class and received some written feedback from everyone about what they liked and disliked about the film.

This was a really good exercise as we could collate the overall results and find trends about what peoples feedback was. For example many people said they loved the camera work, mis-en-scene & acting so I knew there was not an issue there, however they mentioned that some of the pacing was off; especially with how quick the pills being spilled and the ending therefore we knew we had to fix that area.

Here is the rest of the feedback here shown on the rough cut of the film at the adjacent time.
