WHAT HAVE YOU LEARNT FROM YOUR AUDIENCES FEEDBACK?


The feedback I gathered from my audience was particularly important for me as it
allowed me to acknowledge my strengths and weaknesses and showed me the
things that I can improve on for next time. It also presented me with a clear view of
the aspects of the short film that my audience enjoyed and what they thought could
be improved upon.
The feedback that we received was recorded by SurveyMonkey, and data from prequestionnaires and post-questionnaires. The great thing about the online prequestionnaires and post-questionnaires created using SurveyMonkey is that our
audience could easily access them by visiting our blog and fill them in. This is a
great way in gaining feedback as it saves time and resources.
Below are a set of graphs which illustrate our audiences feedback, some of these
are from our post-questionnaire asked to our target audience with a response to
each of them.

What gender are you?

Male
50%

Female
50%

The reason why this question was important to ask our audience is because we
didnt want our feedback to be biased towards a particular gender. We wanted to
obtain equal feedback from both genders to see which gender would be most
positive and attracted to our short film.

Did you enjoy Timeless?

Yes
100%

As a group we were all pleased with the feedback we received from this question as
100% of the people we asked said that they did enjoy the short film. This gave us
reassurance that our short film is good as it is positive feedback. Although people
may not be able to relate to the film as a whole, they were still able to enjoy it

which was one of our aims that we were able to succeed in.

What was the weakest aspect of our short film?


Costumes
20%
Actors
25%

Dialogue
35%
Sound
20%

Here we can see that most people said that they think the dialogue in the
film was the weakest aspect of our short film. This gave us an insight of what
we can do to improve our performance for next time and to spend more time
on our script to ensure it is the best it can be.

What was the strongest aspect of our short film?

Constumes
25%
Sound
40%

Dialogue
10%
Actors
25%

From this question we received really great positive feedback, especially for the
sound within our short film. This presented us with a clear idea that sound is one of
our main strengths and really spoke for our short film and so many of the audience
enjoyed it the most.

Do you think our age certification of pg was appropriate for this film?

Yes
No

I was pleased with the audiences feedback on this question as it shows that the
majority of the audience agreed that having our short film as a PG was a good idea
and best suited the film. The reason for asking this question is because the
certification of this fil affected who our audience were, I think making it a PG
attracted many audiences and didnt put a limit upon who can watch it.

Could you relate to the characters?

Yes
No

From this we learnt that 85% of our audience could relate to our characters. We
were extremely pleased with this result; this is because it means that we portrayed
the characters accurately. Also, we tackled an issue like bullying in the beginning of
the short film which is something many people go through and so people would be
able to relate to it well.

What would you rate our film out of 5?

20%

27%

5
33%

Our feedback for this question shows that 60% of people would rate our
short film 4 out of 5. This is really positive feedback and showcases the
success of our film. It is also great as our feedback shows more people
would rate our film 5 stars as oppose to 1, 2 and 3 stars.

Overall, I am really pleased with all the feedback we received from our audience as
the majority of it was positive. The feedback we received also gives me as an
individual an insight on how I can improve on certain aspects of the production for
next time. For example, an improvement for next time could be to spend more time
in writing dialogue so everything makes sense and flows better. This adds quality to
the short film and allows the audience to grasp a better understanding of the
narrative as a whole. Generally, I feel happy with the feedback received as it shows
that people clearly took a liking to the short film and enjoyed watching it, this
means that our audience understood the narrative and could relate to the
characters.
WWW:

The sound in our production was recognised for being great throughout our
short film

Generally, the feedback we received for our short film was really positive
which shows people really took a liking to the film

The mise-en-scene is what really attracted the audience to go and watch the
film as it made everything look realistic even though it is set in the past

The use of cinematography played out well and made everything a lot more
engaging.

EBI:

The narrative could have perhaps been strengthened if the audience got a
glimpse of Alexas life with the bullies

Certain shots could have lasted longer to give a lasting impact

The graphics like the black hole within our short film could have been better
so it is completely clear that Alexa has gone to another time.
