Today I sent out a survey so i can gain more understanding of what an audience really appreciates in a movie. So far me and my group have established the genre of our 2 minute opening sequence that we'll be creating as 'RomCom'. In general this genre appeals to most people as comedy and romance are 2 genres appreciated by most people and romantic comedies bring these two audiences together.
I've only included basic questions at the moment to test whether or not my group have decided on the right genre. Through separate research i've also noticed that music has a huge influence over the genre of a movie and romantic comedies definitely have elements of fast pace music to keep up with the humour and happiness, but music such as slow piano music is also used to create the gentle romantic moods throughout. Films such as the one below are the perfect example of romantic comedys with varying music to highlight the parts of the movie with comedy and the parts that are more concentrated on the romance.

Romantic comedy's are the best genre of movie as although it has a serious element with the romance its kept light hearted and entertaining with the element of comedy. Although some end badly they all tend to end well although they usually have lots of ups and downs throughout their plot, but also the music tends to be cheerful and light to fit in with the romantic setting and funny sections. Good examples of romantic comedys are films such as 'Hitch' and '13 going on 30'

Me, Taylor and Louis have come up with an idea for our 2 minute opening sequence. Slightly similar to the plot of the film 'This Means War' i act as a girl who is seeing two different boys at once (Taylor and Louis), but what I don't know is that they're both friends. They then both accidentally bump into eachother when I arrange to meet them both on them same day. It will then be left on a cliffhanger as they both meet me at the same time by accident. This is just a basic starting idea, alot more research and development is needed yet.
