The films which are similar to our clip are 'pi' and horror films such as 'dawn of the dead'.
The target audience would generaly be 16 year olds plus, and mostly male as there is a hint of violence within the film. The target audience would also consist of people intrested in phycological films such as 'pi' and horror films such as 'dawn of the dead'.

The name for the film is 19:22 which is important as it is the time at which his hallucinations start. The tittle has significance however we have received feedback from people saying that 19:22 looks like the run time and may be misleading. If i were to crete it agin I would probably rename it to avoid confusion.
We chose to call our production name purple as it is not related to any genre which prevents any “type casting” so to speak as the name is so ambiguous. We chose the colour purple instead of red for example; because as well as providing alliteration, making it roll of the tongue, it’s also a neutral colour not associated with any emotion. ( e.g. red being associated with anger.

In this post I am going to look at editing techniques from other films which may be relevent to our film. All these screen shots have been takien from the film Requiem For A Dream (2000) This film is along the same genre as the film we want to create. The film is about four drug addicts who are all addicted to different drugs for different resons. The film uses lots of different editing techinques to show the state of mind of the characters aswell as some general techniques.
This effect is called a time lapse and shows a long scene from a fixed camera point which is speed up. All of the movement in the scene is played faster than reality which is useful for showing a long recording in a short amount of time. This scene shows the characters lifestyle. This effect could be used in the hallucination stage of our film.
This film uses a lot of editing techniques that suit the genre, these are some of the techniques we would like to use in our film as we feel that they represent the genre well and would visually fit in with our film.
