final feed back

These are the comments and feedback we received from our class and other classes. telling us what they thought our final thriller opening sequence. they also commented which aspects were good about the rough cut and which were bad. so there is both positive and negative. We found all comments extremely useful and it was good to know what people really thought of our thriller, and whether it worked or not. when people watched our thriller we conducted some questions for them to answer, this really helped us to get the answers we were looking for.
