Media focus group 1 planning

Im planning to have a focus group session with last years media students who
are now in univeristy persuing media or is doing media related activites. I want it
to be a casual but insightful part of my groups research which is why Ive
already messaged them and why Im planning now so I could probably send
them the questions for them to prepare for it. I chose them as our first focus
group because I feel that their responses will definitely be relevent to our
research as they have prior knowledge of film and media. In addition to that, I
also want to keep it as an open interview so that everyone can speak and
challenge or support ideas but I also kept it structured and specifc so that we
wont go off topic.
Questions:
1) Have you heard of film noir before?
- Conventions?
- Sub styles/genres? More specifically neo-noire?
