Evaluation Question 2

  1. 1. How Does Your Media ProductRepresent Particular SocialGroups?Will Ellis
  2. 2. Age Both of the characters cast in my film are teenagers.In Films: Jake (The character played by Jack,) is a typical teenager, dressed inblack. Compared to other horror films, Jack is a typical main, teenageprotagonist, as his nervousness and uneasiness creates that samefeeling in a viewer. On the other hand, Jack is not represented as a hero, only a victim.Which countertypes how main teenage protagonists are represented inhorror films.In Real Life: In real life teenagers are presumed to be dangerous/unpredictable, andI think the character of Jake doesn’t fit these stereotypes. Also, the lazy and rebellious stereotypes are not shown in the openingtwo minutes of Delirium. Instead, the character of Jake is active. However, teenagers are also thought to be naive and vulnerable, andthe character of Jake fits that stereotype. The stereotype of a teenager caring about fashion is also challenged inmy representation, as Jake is dressed in all black.

  4. 4.  Lizzie (the character played by Sarah) is acountertype of the representation of teenagers.In Films: For example, she is represented in a similar way tothe “creepy girl” in horrors, who are normally younger.Her bland speech and innocent clothing show this. An example of this is the twin girls in The Shining, orthe s.In Real Life: In real life she is also a countertype. As you wouldn’texpect a normal teenager to act the way that shedoes. For example, the common stereotypes of a teenageris that they are egocentric, lazy, rebellious and so on.The character of Lizzie doesn’t replicate any of thesestereotypes.
