EVALUATION: Questions 4 & 5 - What kind of media institution might distribute your media product and why? How will you attract/address your audience?

Here is a trailer called 'Genesis' made by AS Level students. This trailer has had 19,815 views so far on YouTube. I really like the camera shots/angles, particularly the high angle shot of the girl walking through the forest showing that there is a dominating presense watching her. Also the mise en scene adds to the suspense as it is creepy, for example the two settings being a church and a forest. Overall I'd say that this is a very good and, by the looks of things, a popular and well distributed trailer.

I imagine that the AS media students that created this trailer would have advertised it on social networking sites, such as Facebook, in order to introduce it to a wider audience. I think most of the distribution was probably done on YouTube, as it has 19,815 views so far. Well, I have also adopted these methods of distribution and hope to follow in the same path as 'Genesis' by getting a large view count on YouTube and get a wider variety of audience.
Our thriller opening is a low budget student video that has been released onto Vimeo, embedded onto our blog, uploaded onto YouTube on an account that we made specifically for the film, and has also been shared on Facebook for additional audience feedback; these are a few examples of methods of distribution and marketing in an attempt to reach a global audience. It was produced by an independent, low budget production company called 'Candi Studios' and will get a DVD release of 200 copies.

Here is our thriller opening on Facebook, including feedback and comments.

Here is our thriller opening on YouTube.

Here is our YouTube page for our thriller opening that we created for distribution, as YouTube is a very good distribution method.

Our film will have a cinematic screening along with other groups films at 'The Screen on the Green' on Tuesday 5th April. We will collect feedback and see if our aim of creating a gloomy and suspenseful atmosphere will be achieved.
