In this Youtube video we discuss the fact the our film is an independent film and as a result this will limit our options on distribution. This is because we haven't got a big enough budget in order for us to advertise and release our film to a mass audience.

Question: How did you attract/address your audience?
How Does Your Media Product Represent Particular Social Group
Our title sequences takes the audience through the youth of our protagonist named Jack who was raised in a working class, low income single parent household. This is representative of that social group as a lot of single parent households aren't financially stable and may face financial problems due to there being only one source of income.
In addition to this, working class individuals seek immediate gratification thus our protagonist being extremely passionate however he had a strong sense of doubt in his ability which was further enhanced by the hostility of his team mates making him want to pursue a different career that had more guarantee. As a result of this, similarly to young working class kids today, it is likely that Jack would've given up on his football dream in order to pursue an average 9-5 job. However due to the support of his coach who was a father figure in Jacks life, he was able to guide Jack in the direction of his dreams and keep him motivated and passionate which essentially led him to his success. This is a representation of the elderly social group as they're conceived to be very wise and inspirational.
Our title sequence also represents upper/higher class quite stereotypically as once Jack becomes an extremely wealthy and successful football his personality changes into that of an egotistical, arrogant man who is very boastful about his talent as well as his fame.
We used mise-en-scene to show the contrast in social classes from the lighting and grain of the camera to costuming. As you can see in this first image in contrast to the second everything looks a lot more vibrant in the second image as well as his football trainers and shorts looking a lot more stylish and expensive. This represents the difference in social class as once Jack is rich everything is his life is upgraded which is shown through the quality of the camera.
The difference in class is also shown in our title sequence through the difference in clothing, every time you see Jack as a younger boy his clothing is quite unattractive and basic however once Jack becomes a rich footballer with a higher status, his dressing suddenly becomes a lot more smart and fashionable.
Despite this, Jack possesses both traits of a working class and upper class man. Although he becomes quite conceited, every time he is revisited by his past he becomes very humble and emotional. An example of this is where in one scene he's looking at his football top with the same number on it as his top from his childhood team and he is very sentimental and deep in thought. This shows that he still remembers where we came from and the struggles he faced to get there.
Another social group our title sequence is representative of is the male social group because, unlike females it is said that males are a lot more confrontational as well as direct in their speech. This explains why our main character was alienated by his peers due to being less well off and having inadequate clothing and equipment.
