where we used this was when there were people walking past, this made it look like a busierenvironment.
We stated that our target audience
would be from both genders thoughpredominately female, would be consisting of mainly middle class
and wouldpredominately consist of individuals aged between
This is why wechose to place our documentary on
Channel 4 at 9pm.We believe that this was the best channel to place our documentary on, as weresearched into previous documentaries shown on this channel, and they alsoshow controversial topics. Eg like ours
eating disorders.We also then had to choose the right radio station to play ourradio trailer on. In order to do this we had to listen to radiotrailers that related to both the same target audience and thetopic we are discussing. We decided the best one to use wasCapital FM as this is the most Midlands most listened toradio station, and connects well with a similar targetaudience to our own.When creating the radio trailer we had to ensure we made itconnect with the other two ancillary tasks; to do this we usedthe same voice over, and similar music to the documentary. We added a rhetorical question
is the perfect
, as we have heard previous radio trailers use this, and we found itquite effective. We made the trailer around 30 seconds long, which is a similar average lengthto real radio trailers.
Overall I believe we effectively followed codes and conventionswith our documentary and within both our ancillary tasks.
Q2. ) How effective is the combination of your mainproduct and ancillary tasks?
In order to promote our documentary we had to create a radio trailer and a double pagespread, to make people aware of our documentary and let them know when it was on andwhat it was about etc. As our documentary was aimed at both genders, and to people rangingfrom teens to young adults, we had to make sure all 3 tasks reflected this. Even though ourtarget audience included teens, we still used formal language, but at the same time usedcertain words etc to try and connect with the teens. We chose this targetaudience as we believe this is the most affected age range in whichrelating to our documentary, therefore it was aimed at individuals whocould relate to the topic and feel interested in the subject.
