Evaluation time part 4 and 5!!

Who would be the audience for your film?

& How did you attract/address your audience?
Question 4

This is Alice Richardson. She is 16 years and 8 months old, and lives in the suburbs of London.
She likes dressing as if she is from a different era and loves to style her hair and clothing like she is from these times - her favourite eras being the 40s, 50s and 60s. She enjoys sleepovers with her friends, and shopping at the weekends with her pocket money. She shops in places like H&M, New Look, Charity Shops, Vintage Shops and Topshop.

She enjoys films like Submarine, Rock Horror Picture Show, Sabrina, Quadrophenia, 500 Days Of Summer and Some Like it Hot. She finds out about these movies via blogs sites such as Tumblr and Pinterest and the buys them on DVD out of intrest and to widen her interests.

She also enjoys watching TV shows like Sherlock, Friends, LA Ink, Doctor Who, The Big Bang Therory, America's Next Top Model, Misfits. The main channels would be Channel 4; E4; ITV; BBC One and Three; Comedy Central.

The music this girl would listen to would be anything that catches her ear though normally takes a preference to more alternative, varying from metal, rock, soul, anything before from the 20th century and indie music - not really a 'hip hop' or 'pop' or 'dub-step' kinda girl, though wouldn`t rule out giving them a listen. Listens to X FM for Indie favourites. She also looks up videos on You Tube and normally prefers buying her music via albums on CD.
I think our film would appeal to this girl as she is not your typical mainstream girl who enjoys typical girly things, therefore, she would therefore probably watch this film as it is off the beaten track and she make preferences to things that are not of this time; so this may appeal to her. Also this film is similar to other films she likes, such as Quadrophenia, Nowhere Boy, V For Vendetta and American Beauty.

Question 5
I feel that my target audience are teenagers and young adults who are into more independent films and like more experimental or more unusual story lines and less conventional settings. This as well as the theme of coming of age makes the film relatable to its young audience.
When looking at this question I think the way in which I would attract the target audience I would use slightly more obscure social networking sites such as Tumblr and Pininterest. Though I may still use more popular websites such as Twitter and Facebook. The places I would stock the film if it was to be distributed to shops like HMV and internet shops like Amazon. 
My film would be release on a fairly small scale and may not appeal to a mainstream audience as much due to it being in sepia which is not the norm currently. It may be released in Odeon as they show films which on the beaten track such as The Artist. My film would also be released in Picture House Cinemas.
