Factors of Appeal

We touched on abit about Factors of Appeal when we looked at Jinni.

In Readers' Advisory, factors that can be considered include:

¡Time frame
¡Sexuality ¡

When we talk to patrons about both their book and movie preferences, we will probably notice that they will be similar for both.  Someone who loves Jane Austen novels will love Shakespeare in Love.
There are also some other factors that relate only to movies.
Director: Some viewers will want to see all the moves directed by Quentin Tarrentino or Alfred Hitchcock because they have a specific style.
Remakes:  We have already discussed this particular factor which affects just movies.
We will look next time at the Viewers' Advisory Interview to see how the factors can be used.
