As the name implies, Target Audience means the audience the film appeals to meaning that that particular kind of people will be attracted to watching the film, it is of importance to appeal to someone or it may turn into a film only specific to the character and without any appeal to anything else (like the infamous Archie Sonic the Hedgehog Comics), so I though of all the possibilities with my character and film, and here it goes.
|Dull background, unappealing characters and designs and plus a close reference to the Nazi gassing Chambers (as implied in the dialogue, how can that appeal to a further target audience aside from Sonic's own?|
|Mega man, considered one of the best |
Video-game television series in characterisation
and being the first to look "anime", which was
unique at the time that got people's attention.
|The Looney tunes, classical comedy and characters to associate and appeal to and thus is a role model for animators to actually watch and get inspired by.|
|Dr Abraham Manslow|
|A set of houses in Windsor to persuade audiences that the location is Windsor|
(as told by the housing and building style and recognition of the location).
|The Village, a perfect place to work to take Photographs, and make a audience that will be appealing to the locals.|
The tone of the film is not extremely dark, it is just a action movie that is a silly pleasure to watch ( when drawing the strip I try to make some elements dark and yet it always comes out silly so I am waery of what the audiences will say), but to support the dark claim, Rombes's chest and later Torso will be sliced by Zoltan, but everything else is almost funny or appealing like Judge Dredd or Felix The Cat overall.
But there will be suspense that audiences could stare at due to the protagonist's (Rombes') torso being sliced off at one point and a point where the antagonist (Zoltan) will almost win near the end of the film (makes it bloody and almost like South Park, but in a more toned down way for anyone to keep on watching it).
|Optimus Prime, voiced by Peter|
Cullen and is a good role model
as a action hero and leader,
thus making him likable.
|The Yin and Yang symbol, close to |
what represents Rombes (Yin) and
Zoltan (Yang), which audiences who
recognise the symool could watch
the film to see it in action.
Any extra elements would be the music that audiences could be attracted by due to it's sharp tone and adding suspense to the scene where it takes place, it is only simple piano music instead of the orchestral track of the G1 Transformers cartoon which could make people wonder "why is there only one instrument?" but it makes up for the fact that it does what it is suppose to do and helping the audience get attracted and watch the film further, also the extra element would be the myths that associate with the animals used in the film, which is seen that the Tiger is the king of the animals in China (Wang) which is fitting for Rombes due to him being the leader of the Clarence Clan, and Zoltan being the cunning fox that he is due to his sneaky unpredictable actions within the film so the people who associate themselves to those myths can love the film)
|Rodimus Prime V.s. Galvatron|
(From the original Marvel
Transformers Comic) a good
example of Good V.s. Evil, which the
audience could Identify with in my own
|Rombes the Tiger, on the flight to save the day similar|
to the source material and the superheroes of the Golden
Age of Comic Books, so people will consider him a classic.
So in conclusion, I have got a lot up my sleeve to provide that my film has got a wide range of audience and with many and merry hopes that they can all love and appeal of this film, as much as you would do.
May the Hype stand down.
And take a break for your eyes, if you still have them.
