Theme: The theme of the anti smoking advertisement was that you shouldn’t be concerned trying to help others when you can’t even care for yourselves. Don’t be a hypocrite, don’t smoke.

Point of the Producers View:

The Producers had a great role in the production of this advertisement. He had to devise the concept of how all the camera shots would be arranged and take place and would make sure he got a good clear shot to send out the child actors. He would have had to figured out where he could place the hidden cameras in order to avoid having it blocked and would have to address the children when to go out and speak with the smoking people. He also would have had to decided who he wanted to send the children up to to be a good character to pick on for their shot.

The target market was clearly to smokers to make them aware to be cautious of their decisions. If it were leaned towards a younger generation such as teenagers, they would make the setting more centered towards a school or park with people doing drugs in attempt to fit in and be normal, the conflict would be more centered on how the choice  can effect their future and the characters would be at a similar age group and would have a much clearer theme of commercial.

The cinematographer had an important role in attempt to create a the feeling of unknown sadness from the family and to still display a sense of normality that families can relate too and follow up on. He had to be able to make sure the scenery chosen would fit the way families live and act but still leave a hint of mystery that would be revealed at the end of the advertisement. The cinematographer wanted to put an edgy feel to the video to properly express the emotion of the broken family that would draw the attention of the viewer and keep them interested to at end leave them breathless and filled with thought.
