Evaluation - Question 2

How does your media product represent particular social groups

The social group our movie is aimed at is for teenagers as of the ages of 16-19 year olds,  this is because our 'victim' is presented as a typical teenager, through his clothing the audience we determined that the audience will be able to relate to him a lot easier and also be affected when we see him as being 'watched' and then murdered.

Below is a clip from our thriller opening showing our main character/ victim and from The Mummy Returns showing a kid, both the characters are wearing smart clothing, therefore showing class issues between the victim and the attacker.

in the same way we used 'stereotypes' to emphasise the attacker's motives towards the audience without having to explain much, we used this 'stereotype' to play on the audience's fears and get them involved into the opening!

Below is a screenshot of our 'attacker' and a similar attacker from Kidulthood.
