Transcript

  • 1. Sam
    Martin Kearl & George Attwill
  • 2. Sam
    Sam contrasts to the rest of the characters in how he is portrayed. He casts a very negative representation of his social group. Shown through his behaviour and costume.
    Sam is a more stereotypical character as we chose to use stereotypes in order to have a clearly recognizable antagonist for the film. for his character we played off our audiences hegemonic beliefs about the social group which Sam belongs to (“hoodies”)
  • 3. Sam #2
    Sam’s costume is a key part of how
    his character is portrayed. He wear’s
    both a hoodie and leather jacket, both
    of which have negative connotations,
    this gives a very clear representation
    of his character and thus of the social
    group he belongs to
    The framing and angle of shots used on Sam is also very representative of his character. There is never a clear shot of his face as with the other characters in the film. This makes the character appear quite threatening as we never see his face (an effect akin to “the fear of the unknown” a key concept used in horror/thriller films)
    The final shot is a low angle of Sam treading on the camera, his face is also in shadow. This is a powerful shot, as it makes the character of Sam appear very imposing, both through the use of the low angle but also through the lack of lighting which is cast onto Sam.
