We coming up with a idea for a film, the best place to start is with genre. The target audience of a film should no straight away what the genre is though Mes-en- scene, sound dialogue etc. There are many different genre’s in the film industry, I went though a few and came up with different ideas and filled in what I could.

Taking my research into consideration, I first picked Comedy, more like Teen comedy. Teen comedy is normally either about sex or drugs, and uses a very conventual narrative. I picked this genre A) because I have watched a lot of these types of films B) The actors I am using are around this age, and props, locations are all easy to access. I then realized comedy takes a lot of skill in the writing and the acting, and thats not really what the task is about.
My second choice was the thriller genre, thrillers normally involves suspense, excitement and mystery. All these permitters can be done with clever but simple cinematography and narrative plots and themes. A thriller trailer are some of the best, this is because there is a lot of mysteries and suspense in the trailer, which makes the audience want to see the film.
