There is no music in the piece this relates to the conventions of the genre we were working in. It also allows the audience to make their own assumptions rather than the music trying to guide them through music. The use of non-diegetic sound would also clash with the realism we were trying to achieve.
Our film was very similar in technical styling to fish tank as previously mentioned and also other films distributed by optimum releasing such as submarine and also four lions. The similarities between and relations to these films through optimum distribution (our distribution company) would attract an audience who seek quality, as optimum have distributed for film 4, who have a reputation for pushing boundaries and producing some high quality films.
Our Film provides an in depth look at southern youth Culture, specifically characters from a working class background. This contrasts to other films of the genre which are more likely to have London/ Birmingham based settings/characters and narratives. This would attract our audience to our product due to it being a fresh take on English youth culture.
