How does your media product represent particular social groups ? Question 2
The representation of stereotypes in our thriller is somewhat rather stereotypical. The dead female character has sense of naivety due to her attire. Her red jacket gives her 'a red riding hood' appearance to her which suggests her naivety may have led to her death and that she was possibly easily led.
The protagonist in our production is based on a social group that is looked down upon a great deal in British society . The Council Housed And Violent individuals known as 'hoodies'. We chose this as it reflects the current zeitgeist in this country. 'Hoodies' are considered as having no conscience and this was highlighted in last years London riots. The media dehumanised these indivuals and coincedently has led to a stern prejudice towards them, which may lead to possibly worse crimes and outcomes commited by 'Hoodies'. Bleakness and a dark future for Britain is what is portrayed in our production.
We also have an upper-class character in our thriller whose actions are enigmatic. It's unclear whether he is a loved one of the murdered female or schizophrenia sufferer who murdered the women himself. We got this idea from the 'Fight Club' movie. Where the main character has an alter ego which he can see in human form .
