Film Two: Test Screening

This week the guys pulled in small groups of young people from the streets around the MCP and we showed them the first cut of made-up conspiracy film: The Vampire Conspiracy. We wanted to get some initial feedback from young people to see if the film worked and made a clear and convincing case. After each screening we interviewed audience members outside (Check the video below).


The responses we got were generally really positive but we definitely noticed that there was a tendency for some young people to start switching off a few minutes into the film. Also, exit interviews suggested that while may people were convinced by our ‘evidence’, they didn’t fully understand all the content. We will be taking some of this information into account in shaping a final film that will undoubtably be shorter, faster and have more information towards the beginning. We’re also thinking about recording the narration with a young person from the group.
