Website and Trailer Evaluation

“Candidates should explain in no more than 200 words how their two research, planning and production tasks are connected and how effective they are. They should also comment on how they have addressed representational and institutional issues.


You need to explain the synergy between your website and trailer and how you have used representation and institutional aspects.


How you have you created an effective cross media marketing campaign:

  • Synergy with title (same typography)

  • Synergy in terms of characters (have you used the same characters in both the website and trailer.

  • How have these characters been represented? What effect does it have on the audience?

  • How have settings/locations been represented? What effect does it have on the audience?

  • How has the gameplay been represented? What effect does it have on the audience?

  • What institutional aspects have you included on both the website and trailer and why? (PEGI rating, platforms it’s available on)

  • What additional institutional aspects have you included on the website (social networking, small print at the bottom, “buy now” button) Why have these been included?
