How does your media product represent particular social groups?

  1. 1. How does your media product represent particular social groups Question 2
  2. 2. Characters can be represented in different ways to suit the target audience, this can be changed through different social groups. The different social classes are Age, Gender, Social class, Ethnicity and also physical ability. In our media product, our characters shared similar similarities and differences in social groups. The 2 characters are around similar age, both are white, British and males. They lastly share similar abilities and social classes. In our media product, the differences
  3. 3. Stereotypes A stereotype is somebody that is an example of a gender or what people should look like. In Action films the stereotypes are usually men, as they are stereotypically bold and strong. Men are normally used in Action films as they are more dominant over females which are more vulnerable. In a males society there are two types which are very dominant males and less dominant males. In our media product we decided to support the stereotypes theory in Action films by using male characters in our film opening which made our media product better and more accurate. In my opinion I was glad that we used males instead of females because at the fight scene it would be abnormal to see women fighting in a Action film scene.
