Who Are You Making Your Film For?
I am making my film for youths who are still at their secondary school and between the ages of 12 and 18. This age range has been chosen as my film is set on school children and showing an important school scenario. Therefore it is important that school children see it. The psychographic categories that youths fit into are TRENDIES, EGOIST, PURITANS, INNOVATORS, REBELS, GROUPIES, DRIFTERS, DROP OUTS, TRADITIONALISTS, UTOPIANS, CYNICS and COWBOYS.
My film is targeted at all of these because they are all youths who are pleasure seeking, those craving acceptance and those who want the world to be a better place. My film is aimed at these because all of these different categories are found in schools and therefore it is important that all should see it because the scenario in my film could happen to anyone.
