Most media texts target a range of different audiences, how true is this with your chosen texts?


Most media texts target a range of different audiences, how true is this with your chosen texts?

The chosen text is Lost, I feel that this relates very well with this text as it is aimed at various different audiences. With the TV programme Lost it is open to a wide range of audiences this allows them to reach a wider audience and have more people watch it. It is a mainstream text by the techniques which are used through out for example the programme is constantly telling you what is going on which makes it passive, you do not have to work out what is going on you are constantly being told this.
Also it uses enigma codes to question what is going on, when the bear is running towards them it does not show what the animal is which entices the audience in and makes you intrigued, also it uses non diegetic sound to build up the tension for the audience to understand that they should be scared and frightened. It is also using a camera shot where it is shaky and on a slight angle this makes it seem a lot more realistic and like a hand held camera. 
When the bear begins to get really close the Man shoots the bear this gives him a sense of authority and strength which is the stereotypical view point of men, this could mean that men feel as though they can relate to the man because he is the one who is in charge and they like to feel they have some kind of power.  When looking at the man it uses a low angle shot to show that he is over powering and is taking more authority. Also the women begin to run away and scream which could show they need to be protected and they don't have much power this may make women feel as though they can relate which is also another stereo typical view point. It uses a high angle shot on the women to show how they could be manipulated and that others can over power them.
Also with their being an English person it can relate to different people from all over the world as it also include chinese people and their cultures and religious aspects which they have to abide by. This means that more people can relate to the programme.
