‘Inside My Reality’
This is a brief presentation to illustrate our main characters of our production and who we would have play them.
K AT I E – O U R P RO TAG O N I S T
Katie is the main character in our narrative. She has an unusual
50’s style and is abused by her father and bullied at school. In our
production she will be played by Annie Haigh.
If we were to produce our film with well known actors we
would use Taissa Farminga for this role. Well known from The
Bling Ring and American Horror Story. This is because she fits our
characters description, dark blonde/light brunette, innocent, young
and a unique style and personality.
Charlotte meets our main character, Katie towards the end of our film. They
meet at a counselling session and soon fall in love. We used a same-sex
relationship in our production to conform to typical codes and conventions of a
social realist drama.
In a real life production we would like to use
Mila Kunis as this character. She is most well
known from Black Swan and Friends With
Benefits. She is dark haired, attractive and is
capable of playing a complex character.
Katie’s father in our narrative is a violent and alcoholic
character that blames Katie for his wife's death. He shouts at
and hits Katie on a daily basis. In our trailer we will just be
using his voice, and he will not be on the screen in the trailer.
If we were to produce the film fully we would use Ron
Perlman, best known for his violent biker-guy role in Sons
S H A N N O N – O U R M A I N BU L LY
Shannon in our production will be played by Lisa
Pritchard. She is a stereotypical teenager in school, and
bullies those she thinks she is better than. She bullies Katie
both verbally and over the internet.
In a real life production of our film we would use Freya
Mavor, from the well known E4 teen drama Skins and the
new social realist film Sunshine On Leith, for the role.
The counsellor in our production brings our two main
characters together. She only plays a small role in our production
but is key to the narrative progression. She helps Katie and
Charlotte re-build themselves and brings them together.
If we produced the whole film for real we would use Viola
Davis. This is because she looks stereotypically like a kind and
thoughtful, and quite quirky character. She is most well known for
her roles in Beautiful Creatures, The Help, Won’t Back Down and
Knight and Day.
