Suitability to Our AudienceWe were given the target audience of teen boys.We decided to target out film to 13-17 year old boys.Our film will appeal to our audience because it contains: violence, explosions, good vs. evil and a pretty woman. All of these elements appeal to a teenage boy because they attend the cinema to watch fights, explosions and expensive cars; all of which are featured in our film.
Enigma CodesOne enigma code in our film is the movies title itself. The name is very ominous and vague which makes the reader wonder what is White River? The title plays into the plots theme of this secret agency in the government as it is elusive and inconspicuous.

Marketing We plan to market our film around the concept of Ethan and Alyssa training to become assassins and battling a villain together. We aim to use a small trailer campaign to attract the bulk of our audience. As well as this, we aim to use social media to attract our young target audience.We will use applications such as Twitter and Snapchat to attract our youth. We will set up accounts which will update our audience on release dates and show small teaser clips before it is released. We hope that this can attract a mass audience of 13-17 year olds.
Institution The film production company that are the most likely to produce our film would be 20th Century Fox. This is due to the fact that they have produced several huge movies in the past couple of years. As well as this, the types of films they produce are very similar to ours so we would fit nicely into their company.Not only this but our film will probably need a relatively large budget in order to fulfil our vision, so a big production company would be the more viable economic path.
What Makes Our Film Unique?Our film is different to other spy-action films because the two main characters are a brother and sister. This type of sibling relationship is rarely seen in action films because one man or woman usually dominates the usual type of character. Also the aspect of showing their training throughout the agency is usually not featured in films. As well as this, their training is completed together which is also different. They are a team rather than individuals.
