Who would be the audience for your media product and why?

Our film is generally aimed at a 18-35 audience. Our film opening however probably doesn't give that impression but if we were to go on to make the rest of the film it would contain alot more violence, strong language and adult and disturbing themes, along with some possible drug use. These factors would attract an older audience aswell as the mature and deep psychological themes that would feature throughout the film.
Although this is the target audience by the standards of the bbfc, it may still appeal to a slightly younger audience. For example, the channel 4 TV programme "Skins" has attracted an audience that is mainly made up of ages 14-16, despite the fact the show has a Ofcom rating of 18.
Therefore our film may still attract a younger audience, because, like skins, the characters are of a younger generation also.
The central characters in Darren Aronofsky's "Requiem for a Dream" are also of the younger generation, despite the films disturbing and psychological genre.
Like, "Requiem.." our film features a couple, young and struggling with money, and because of the harsh reality of their situations, it can only end in tragedy.

We hoped that our film would attract a more creative and intellectual audience, as it may just be boring to others. The inter textual references should be appreciated more by those who have a love film.
