Outline for our Documentary
For our documentary, we are going to be looking into teenage suicide. In our
documentary, we will be exploring what drives people to suicide (or
attempting suicide) and how people can get help if they need it. We will
include stories of a person that committed suicide (being re-enacted) and a
person that attempted suicide but are now glad they are still alive. We want
to use these stories to give hope and raise awareness and understanding of
issues relating to suicide and mental health and inform people that they are
never alone and there is always someone willing to help them if they are ever
feeling depressed or suicidal.
Genre and format
The genre of our documentary will be educational. This is because we are aiming
our documentary at teenagers, so therefore the people who would watch our
documentary would be at school or college. Additionally, it would be classed as
educational due to the fact that our documentary will be stating facts and figures
about suicide and addressing issues such as bullying and informing people why
suicide is not the way to go and they can get help.
Format: Expository and interactive.
We would like to present our documentary in the form of a expository or
interactive documentary as we feel that it would cover elements of both. This is
because we will include voice over's throughout our documentary in order to speak
directly to the viewer to try and persuade them that suicide isn't the way to go,
but we will also be covering aspects of interactive documentary as we will include
interviews with people that have attempted suicide.
Our target audience is primarily aimed at a teenage demographic (13-20). This is
because the main focus in our documentary is to raise awareness and
understanding of issues relating to suicide towards teenagers. Both of the stories
in our documentary will be from a teenagers perspective so therefore a
teenager will be able to connect with them.
Our secondary target audience for our documentary is aimed at everyone else,
and anyone who can relate to the topic of suicide. It is also aimed at anyone
who has ever felt or is feeling suicidal or depressed and informing them where
they can get help if they don't know who to turn to.
Aim of the documentary
The aim of our documentary is to raise awareness about suicide and inform people
about the effects and consequences it has on people and the families that have to
deal with it.
By producing a documentary based on suicide we hope to inform people on the
facts of suicide as well as teaching them that the conceptions of people who
commit suicide are wrong and teach them the true facts.
