1. HOW DOES YOUR MEDIA PRODUCTREPRESENT PARTICULAR SOCIALGROUPS?Jessie Niven
2. TARGET AUDIENCELooking back on my target audience, I asked a rangeof different aged people (16-50) if they liked fantasyfilms and the majority said yes. This shows that allages enjoy fantasy, this made it harder for us to focuson one particular social group.After identifying that it was common for children andyounger teenagers to go to the cinema with theirparents we decided to aim it at that age category atages 13-17. If the film was to be released again, wewould make sure it is appeal to an older age group.
3. SOCIAL GROUPS After deciding our social group we felt it would be a good idea to only incorporate one character to begin with, as we wanted the audience to be building a relationship with her as she is the protagonist throughout our two minuet production. We looked at stereotypical teens in other films as this is what we wanted our character to be portrayed as. Our character was based on…Hermione Granger – The Hunger Games TwilightHarry Potter
4. MAIN FOCUSHermione Granger – ‘Harry Potter and Emma – ‘Emma’s Dilemma’The Prisoner of Azkaban Scruffy Hair Casual clothing, ju mper , jeans and trainers; showing her to be normal. Both characters have minimal make up, both shown to be quite young. We did not want our character to look older, we wanted her to be innocent, by putting her in clothing that would not be revealing and looks quite casual. Hermione Granger was the best comparison.
5. REPRESENTATIONS We all liked the costume for our character as it managed to represent simplicity and comfort as we didn’t want Emma to be threatening. We deliberately chose our character to be working class, as we wanted to give the impression that she was ‘normal’. Having her wear little make up and non-revealing clothes makes her appear to be younger or naiveAll of these representations build an image about ourcharacter and shows how we wanted her to look.
