Location Survey Analysis:

Tempore Productions Georgia Marchant Location Survey Analysis

In this survey we asked twenty people nine questions about location in our trailer. We used the site https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/ in order to create our questionnaire and have people answer it. The results can be found here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/results/SM-8GKBP7ZC/.:

In this survey we asked twenty people nine questions about location in our trailer. We used the site https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk / in order to create our questionnaire and have people answer it. The results can be found here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/results/SM-8GKBP7ZC / . This presentation consists of the answers and our analysis for each one and how we will apply the results to our own trailer.

Question 1:

Question 1 After asking the first question in our questionnaire, 100% of the people involved said ‘yes’, different locations in trailers make it more interesting to watch. This result tells us that it is crucial that we include an array of locations throughout our own trailer in order to keep the audience engaged and show them more little bits of our film.

Question 2:

Question 2 The next part was to find out how many locations our audience found acceptable for a trailer. 50% of our part takers said that five different locations were appropriate. We also feel that this number is acceptable as we can cover quite a few parts of our film that hopefully flow well together. The answers the other 50% of our part takers chose were three (10%), four (30%) and more than 5 (10%). Although we value their opinion we felt as if there would be slight problem with some of the numbers. Three locations just didn’t seem enough to fill a two – two and a half minute trailer and more than five may get a bit confusing and the audience may loose the plot of the trailer and therefore become uninterested. Four locations started to get closer to our ideal number however it was only ever so slightly not enough. I think if the option for four came out with the higher percentage we would have used it because it is a respectable number of locations to include however we felt as if it would have been better to go with the majority as we agreed with their answer.

Question 3:

Question 3 After deciding on the genre of our trailer, we wanted to ask our audience what type of location would they expect to find in a film of fantasy genre. 70% of our part takers said scenic landscapes which we would expect because a lot of previous fantasy films such as The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit etc. have plenty of establishing shots of vast, mystical and scenic landscapes. 30% said a castle. In our questionnaire we didn’t specify wh - at kind of castle (medieval, princess castle etc.) so it is entirely possible to find castles in such a genre. To meet the expectations of our audience we have decided to include some establishing shots of landscapes in our trailer so that we fit their requirements (to do with location) of a fantasy film.

Question 4:

Question 4 SIDE NOTE: I’ve just noticed that instead of writing genre in the question, I wrote genre but after taking a look at the answers we’ve decided that the error in the title has not effected them. As we want to make our film a hybrid genre of fantasy and mystery, we decided to ask our audience the same question as before but changed the genre to mystery. Just like previously, the audi - e nce split into two different answers. 70% said that a crime scene would be an acceptable location to include and 30% said a police station. We feel as if both answers are very acceptable ones as they tie in with each other. In a mystery film, if it revolves around a case from a crime, it is very likely that a crime scene will be included. In our trailer we wish to show our crime scene as the majority of the audience thinks it is appropriate, however to play with the genre of mystery, we do not want to explicitly show the crime scene in its aftermath but more so as the crime happens. We also want to include the police station as a way to introduce our detective as we feel as if our mystery/fantasy film will benefit from this character.

Question 5:

Question 5 Our next question revolves around our detective character as we knew prior to the questionnaire that a mystery film needs one. We asked our audience where they felt a detective could stereotypically be found. 100% of the audience said a police station and so because of this, we know for sure that we must include such a location in order to properly introduce this character.

Question 6:

Question 6 For our final question on the police station (but not the whole questionnaire) we asked the audience about lighting as we had clashing ideas. I said that the station should be filled with high key , bright lighting and so sided with 70% of our part takers because the high key lighting represents hope and how the people trust the police in helping to get justice for those that have been wronged where as my partner, Jodie said that the lighting should be low key and dull because it symbolises how something bad has happened in order to visit such a place and so she sides with the other 30% of our part takers. We decided collectively that we want our police station to have high key lighting because the majority of our audience thought it would be a better idea and the bright lighting emits a positive message.

Question 7:

Question 7 In our film trailer, we do want there to be a murder as our full film idea revolves around a crime of such degree however we didn’t know where the best place to have it would be so we asked our audience. 50% of them said a dark alley most likely because it is secluded and the connotations of dark are evil, sinister and dangerous which are words that can describe the act of murder. The seclusion also shows the vulnerability of the victim as they are murdered. Alleys are also a stereotypical place for murders to happen as it is heard a lot in the news and people have been told from young ages that they are dangerous because of their seclusion. 30% said a deserted park may also be a common place for a murder. This maybe because the desertion also shows seclusion and the vast emptiness of somewhere deserted is quite sinister and creepy and also shows vulnerability because there isn’t anyone to run to for help. Finally 20% said that it could happen at home which shows the true sinister nature of murder and that it can happen in even the safest of places. We don’t think it would be a good idea to have it happen in a home as it may make our audience paranoid and scared and we also think a dark alley is too stereotypical so we decided that our crime should happen in the park.

Question 8 and 9:

Question 8 and 9 For question eight and nine we asked our audience about lighting and the moods they show in certain locations. In question eight we asked if our audience felt as if a children’s play area was associated with positive or negative moods. 100% said positive however we knew this would be their answer yet we decided to ask anyway because we wanted to challenge this idea much like the scene in Harry Potter: The Prisoner of Azkaban where Harry is waiting for a bus in the darkness of the night and is sitting by a park. The swings, see-saw and roundabout start moving on their own and a silhouette appears in the darkness creating an eerie, sinister mood. We wanted to create the same mood in our trailer. In question nine we asked if the lighting of a brightly lit house created a positive mood or a neg - ative one and 100% said positive. We collectively agree with this answer as we want to include a scene where two characters with a romantic interest in each other share a happy moment together. We asked this question because we wanted to kno w if the location we wanted to put them in would portray this moment well and by the looks of our results it would.
