Evaluation 3: What have you learned from your audience feedback?

From receiving audience feedback we were able to improve every aspect of project. We showed a wide range of people our film poster; most of the reviews were very positive such as 'Thinks it reflects the plot of our film well with the two narratives'. Even though the majority of the feedback was positive we did get some negative feedback such as 'The hairline of our actor on the left needed editing as is looked poor' as a group we decided that we agreed with this feedback and therefore we decided to edit our poster further. Also when we originally planned our film we decided we were going to cross-cut between the two narratives; cutting between scenes of Lucas in the successful life to Lucas in the family life but once we showed this to our audience we realised that it was difficult to understand so we chose to change the colour of the successful life to black and white conveying a sense of loneliness and depression however our audience still didn't understand it was two completely different lives. Therefore as a group we decided to rethink how we were going to show this, we came up with the idea of showing the flash forward and then all the successful life and then return to Lucas at the train station and then flash forward again to all the family life scenes. We agreed this worked well and therefore decided to keep our edit like this. Overall i think audience feedback is very important even though we didn't listen to all of our feedback we took it all in to consideration and changed the parts of our project that we agreed needed to be changed.
