2) How does your media product represent particular social groups

Our opening sequence we tried to reflect different social groups in order to appeal to a wide range of audience. Two main ones that we included in our sequence was:

• The state of mind of the male protagonist

• The way in which we represented teenage girls

In our sequence we took a risk by making the main male character in our opening have Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). In order for us to represent this properly we obviously had to do research on it and really get into the mind and character of someone with OCD.

This was the OCD video that we really used for inspiration it really helped us to convey the state of mind representation. This is who we based our character on.

We then chose to represent teenage girls:

Question 2 Female Charc

  • The protagonist in this film inspired us to do the OCD idea the way in which he cares for and obsesses over his victim is what we found very strange. In our sequence if we were to continue it he wants to get the 4th girl and he would look after her.
