    1-We had a scary mood and we used close up shots and followed the trailer as much as we could.
    2-people who love paranormal horror movies. So we know what kind of mood/tone to use to have it perfect for the audience.
    3-We sped film where it needed to be and adjusted the exposer on the camera then changed the colors on a clip in the film.
    4- The film was shot with just a hand held camera due to the fact it was a couple of college students who shot the video. we mimicked it the same way.

    1) The mood of our trailer was happy and excited. Ways we conveyed the mood of the trailer was having everyone be energetic and smiling.
    2)The target audience would be young children and teenagers. I would consider audience when producing a trailer because it help the producers to keep in mind the reason behind the production.
    3)Pacing affected our trailer by keeping everything lined up on our trailer with the things that we had to use from the original. We manipulated pacing and time by having everything run together correctly. On our part outside of the video, pacing was important to keep everyone on task and happy.
    4)The most difficult part of the shooting and editing phase was trying to get our trailer as much like the original as we could. It was pretty difficult to mimic the original trailer.

    1.) The mood is exciting. It has a lot of energy in the video.
    2.)The audience was towards a younger crowd and those that maybe like Disney movies. It’s good for the audience so they know what other movies they might like.
    3.)The pacing and time was good. It helped with the video not being slow but at a faster pace and with no dead space.
    4.)The most difficult part was probably lining up the video with the audio from the trailer.

  12. 1) The mood was happy, cheerful and exciting. By speaking cheerfully.
    2) Our main audience is Disney fanatics. You want an audience that will enjoy your trailer and persuade them to go watch the movie.
    3) By pacing the trailer it was hard to get all of the scene in that amount of time. Cutting a few irrelevant scenes.
    4) The most difficult part of the shooting and editing phase was getting our objects to match the green screen.

    1) Exciting and fun. BY making the fish move quickly.
    2) Anyone who is a fan of Disney and/or is a child. To know if it will be a big hit or not.
    3) The pace was really fast so it was difficult to get it close to how it actually was.
    4) The most difficult part of the shooting phase was making sure we only get the fish and green in and nothing else. The most difficult part of the editing phase was getting the green to fully disappear and it just be the background and the fish.

    4) The most difficult parts of production were syncing the audio to the video and the amount of scenes that needed to be filmed. It was very difficult to copy the trailer of Annie because of these reasons.

    1. The mood of our “Clueless” trailer was light-hearted and funny. We conveyed this by adding pop music and the jokes throughout.
    2. Our target audience was teens and young adults. You should consider audience so that you can figure out how to best intrigue that audience to want to watch the whole movie.
    3. Pacing effected our trailer because the original trailer didn’t really give away too much of the actual story line, so we had to figure out how to keep the viewers interested. We manipulated time by trying to drag out some of the dialogue, music, etc.
    4. The most difficult part was the car scenes. We didn’t have access to a car, so we had to use the green screen and try our hardest to make it look real. Other than the car scenes, it was relatively easy to mimic the original.

  20. 1. Exited and bored in some ways and the music and suspense
    2. Teens and adults cause of the humor
    3. Zit helped us with taking our time and doing it right
    4. Kind of hard to get some of it done with the shots cause we could not do it

  21. 1. There is an awkward mood and many of our scenes reflect that. Ex. Fletcher dressed as a girl.

    2. High School students are our audience and it’s important to know your audience because different groups like different things in movies.

    3. Pacing contributed to our flow and recreating the trailer accurately.

    4. The scene where two of them kiss was most difficult. It was somewhat easy to mimic the original trailer.

    1) The mood was a happy story of a orphan.
    2) Families, mainly children. To show all it has to offer to get them excited.
    3) It made it to where, sometimes, we had to get everything perfect. We skipped some scenes.
    4) By getting everything done with such a long trailer. It was pretty difficult because of low effects.

  24. 1.) Our trailer was scary and tense. We recreated this by making it look like Amanda had been crying and getting her to try to sound like the girl in the trailer as best we could in parts where she was scared.
    2.) Our target audience would be people who like horror movies or found footage films. Depending on your audience you can decide how to compose the trailer. It can be intense or eerie if thats what your audience is looking for.
    3,) It was hard to get things the exact speed they were in the original trailer so we had to speed a lot of the footage up to get the same look.
    4.) The hardest part of the shooting phase was getting the acting to seem realistic. The hardest part of the editing phase was figuring out how to get the colors to look the same. It wasn’t hard to mimic the trailer because it was relatively easy.
