(6) Disney Movies! (Survey by James Mason)
`Do you loathe Disney films? Do you love Disney films? Do you not give two hoots about Disney films? Do you know anyone who could answer yes to any of these questions? Then this questionnaire is for you!
As part of my PhD research into adult audiences and their relationships with Disney films (which are synonymous with children’s entertainment) I have put together an online questionnaire for anyone over the age of 18 to complete. It doesn’t matter whether respondents like, love, or loathe Disney films, all responses are welcome.’ (Mason 2016)
The Disney Films questionnaire is open until the end of July 2016 and can be accessed here: https://leeds.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/disney-surve
High-RoI Story/Screenplay/Movie and Transmedia Researcher
Some of the above Surveys are related to, or inspired by my doctoral thesis: “Communication, Creativity and Consilience in Cinema”. Others are just there as: they are interesting.
They are presented here for the benefit of fellow screenwriting, filmmaking and creativity researchers.
