I adressed the audience by asking for audience input during the early stages of production. I handed out questionnaires asking the audience how they felt about the mane of the film, the music used in the title sequence, the font used and how they felt overall about the sequence. This helped me make sure that every step I made would have a reflection on what the target audience want. this influenced the characters used and the setting of the title sequence. The target audience also influenced the newspaper because they can relate to it better if there was a headline relating to what they usually did, the school dance.
The target audience was attracted by the enigma created at the end of the title sequence after the blind panic scene and it goes to static. The fact that the characters were all in the age range of the target audience also attracted the target audience more to the sequence because it gave a feel of realism.
The target audience was pleased with the final production because they gave positive feed back saying they loved the music, the choice of font, the character and the setting especially the lab setting. They also liked the positioning of the scenes and how they came after the titles, they said it told them the story in a very fast tension building way and that made them want to see the sequence more. They loved the blind panic scene with the hand held camera because they couldn't understand exactly what the character was saying but could tell that the character was trying to warn them about the zombies and this creates enigma for the audience because they don't know exactly what the character is saying about the zombies and the scene cuts to static not revelling what happened to the character.
From the audience feedback, the only thing that was a bit unsuccessful was the sound volume. They said they loved the music but the sound was uneven.
