How does your media project represent particular social groups?
When doing our target audience research we found that the majority of responses were from a younger generation (10-19) therefore we decided to try and appealmainly to this age group. By doing this we decided to use setting which is known to ayounger age and used characters of a similar age, this enables them to relate to the film. Below is a screen shot of the survey results .
Alices character was based on Sidney Prescott from the Scream franchise. Sidney isa high school student who becomes the target of a mystery killer. Our character hassimilar traits to Sidney such as her age, casual clothing and general appearance and the fact she cannot see her stalker most of the time.
When researching in to our ‘villain’ character we found that there isnt any main zombie characters, they stereotypically don’t have speaking parts andnormally run around in groups searching for blood. We found various imageson the internet of what we would want our zombie character to look like, thisimage is good representation of what we wanted to our character to look like as she is young and has white eyes and casual clothing.
