  1. 1. The mood of our trailer was sad and emotional. It had a sad flow to it, and the music added to that.

    2. I think the audience this would appeal to is someone who like drama.

    3. The scenes flipped fast and so filming it we had a lot of scenes, but they were all really short.

    4. The hardest part of remaking this trailer was the props. There was a part that they had a casket and remaking that was probably the hardest part, but our trailer didn’t have any voices in it so that made it a lot better.

  2. 1. The mood of the trailer was light and funny. It was transparent and extremely comedic. We tried to translate the light from the trailer into our way of doing it through the comedic remakes of the scene.
    2. Teens and young adults are the targets. Because audience is how you market your video.
    3. we had issues with pacing.

    3.Paceing was a huge thing in my trailer. If we didn’t pace things correctly then the trailer wouldn’t have the same effect on people.
    4. The most difficult part of the shooting and editing phase was putting the correct shots and camera angles in the correct order to mimic the trailer. Also using the same camera angles as the trailer was difficult. It wasn’t very difficult to mimic the trailer but it definitely wasn’t easy.

  4. happy and exciting, by the tone of voices and showing the finals.

    2.teens because the movie is about college and the humor is more teenage like.

    3. it was fast and it helped show mood and the excitement

    2. Our target audience is teenagers. It’s important to consider the target audience so that you know what to put in your video.

    3. Pacing effected our trailer in a way that we had to know the exact thing we were going to film so that we would stay on task.

    4. The most difficult part of the shooting and editing phase was trying to make the shots look exactly how they were in the original trailer. It was really difficult to mimic the original, but we overcame it.

    1. The mood of the trailer was funny and we conveyed it by trying to remake the scenes as funny as they were on the trailer and the music that we picked.
    2. Our audience was teenagers. It is important to know the target audience so you can make a trailer that they will want to see.
    3. It made the trailer move along and not drag. We made sure the scenes were short and quick so it would make the pace better.
    4.The hardest part of shooting was getting some of the angles and editing was probably the graphics for the video. It was difficult because of all the different angles and techniques used in the 2 minute trailer.

    1. The mood for this trailer is kind of sad. We conveyed this by just using scenes and music without any dialogue.
    2. The target audience for this trailer is teenagers and adults. It is important to think about the target audience while making a trailer because you need to use things that would get that age groups attention.
    3. A lot of short scenes but lots of filming was shot for this video.
    4. The hardest part for me personally was finding the space needed for the video. We needed many different locations so that it would look as close to the real thing as possible.

    1.The mood in the trailer was mostly light, demonstrated by humorous scenes.

    2.The target audience was mostly kids and teens. The target audience should be considered so things that would interest said audience can be shown.

    4. It was difficult finding places that look like Detroit. It was extremely difficult to mimic the trailer.

  12. 1. The mood is kind of mean. The movie we did was mean girls so we had to make everyone seem mean.
    2. Teens. So you know what scenes from the movie to put in the trailer so it will appeal to your ideal audience.
    3. The trailer was very fast paced. We had to cut out a few parts so it would make it seem like they got to places much faster.
    4. Trying to make it as close to the actual trailer as they did. Obviously, we didn’t have all the effects they did and we couldn’t do all the scenes exactly the way they did them in the actual trailer.

    1.) It was meant to be funny, to make people happy and make them laugh.
    2.) Really anyone who can understand it, but mostly young adults.
    3.) We had to move really quickly from each shot so that it wasn’t slow, and people didn’t feel like it was inching along.
    4.) It was hard to get some of the shots, like the one where the dwarf had to drop kick Buddy. We didn’t have a dwarf and we also didn’t want Jonathan to get injured so we had to modify the trailer.

  18. 1. The mood of this trailer is easy-going and funny. We show it through the humor and light-hearted mood.
    2. The audience is mainly teens and younger people. It’s important to consider the audience because you need to know what to put in the video.
