One of the locations is a car garage. this is where the contract killer will be when he receives the call for the job.

Another location is the rich mans living room. This is where he briefs the killer. he tells him who he is killing and where he can find him.

The next location is in an alley way. this is where the final scene happens the killer chases down the suspect and finally catches him.


For the victim we have dressed him in a casual hoodie and tracksuit bottoms, he is dressed as a normal pedestrian; this is because we wanted him to look like an ordinary person. 

his past is his problem. 


The killer will be wearing a casual adidas tracksuit. 
This is so that he can blend in with pedestrians and because it allows him to not draw attention to himself. 
we chose this outfit so that he is able to chase his victims comfortably. we though this look would be better than a suit or something more professional because it is not realistic.    
7. What have you learnt about technologies from the process of constructing this product?

There are loads of different things you can do with technology nowadays in regards to making a film.  Scenes can be cut and moved about; scenes can be slowed down or sped up for impact and variety in the techniques you use.

Music can be added to change the mood of the film for example to add tension, music is a very important in a film it allows the audience to feel the feeling you are portraying on the screen, it allows the audience to be apart of what you a trying to put across.

Imagery within a film is very important, for example you can use technology to film in a way that draws the audience in and opens there minds and makes them think about what they would do if they were in the same situation. Drawing the audience in is a massive part of making a great film, if the audience doesnt feel involved then they are never going to feel influenced/attracted to watching your films.
6. Looking back at your preliminary task (the continuity editing task), what do you feel you have learnt in the progression from it to full product?

From our filming sessions we have learn a lot of different techniques, which make a film interesting and unique. There are loads of different techniques that we used within our film, for example:

Fade in / out shot


Shot reverse shot

360 degree rule

And many more.

We have learnt how to go from basic straight filming to making a film to a professional level, the preliminary tasks helped a lot with this as it acted as a guide line for our filming; we used it as a list we simply followed the list every time we needed a new filming technique. Filming techniques have to be used when making a film; they add tension, drama and intensity. 

Without filming techniques films become boring and useless for the audience, films are made for one purpose to entertain, and with a film that lacks drama there is no point in spending money producing a film that sends its audience to sleep.
5. How did you attract/ address your target audience?

Mode of address – Adults can relate to the type of film and its storyline, as it involves sensitive scenes, which evoke the views emotions allowing them to connect with the film. The title Revenge allows the audience to easily to relate to an emotion often felt and also allows them to identify that it is not always the best option.

The profile of the characters gives off an image of higher and lower class but portrayed by actors that you wouldnt stereotypically put in those roles. The message of this being that class isnt always determined by age or appearance.

The title of the film Revenge matches the genre of film youd expect to see, this is aimed at anyone who enjoys a thriller film, but with the plot twist, it attracts an audience that perhaps does not enjoy a conventional plot.
4. Who is the main target audience for your product?

The target audience is anyone who enjoys a thriller film; the film itself has no target age or is targeted towards a specific gender, we planned this from the beginning as it would widen maximise our audience and as a low budget film, we needed to make sure we got the most amount of views possible. We made this possible by incorporating factors that would appeal to the majority of the audience, again maximising our views and potential revenue.

Our media products represent particular social groups such as

Evaluation Questions:

1. In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?

-Our media product can be compared to a variety of real opening sequences that have been produced in a professional way. The media products can only have a slight similarity; this is because the real media products have been produced in a professional way. This means that the professionals will have access to: professional cameras, tripods, dollys and other high-tech tools to film.

-Our media product offers slow motions scenes, varies fonts and effects which have all been edited through final cut pro. This compares to the real product in a good form, this is because real media products such as the Fast & Furious opening scene. They have also used varies effects and transitions throughout their opening scene so this links to our opening scene.

-Real media products also have an opening before their opening scene; this is just the scene which offers the film title. Our media product has an opening which builds up to the actual scenes; this opening has the film title. Real media products also have transitions in-between their scenes which indicate the producers names, editors names, character names etc.

-Real media products also have music to fit in with their opening sequences, most real media products have permission to use copyright songs, this gives them a better quality music choice to fit in with the opening scene
