The director also had to visualize the script while helping the actors/actress fulfill that vision.
TARGET MARKET: People who are sexually active and MARRIED. The target market can also be for anybody who are sexually active and are having satisfaction issues. If the target market were teenagers, I think that the setting would be at a school in a sexual education class.
