How does your media product represent particular social groups? By Ellis Parkinson
Clothing We used a hooded top for our character who is meant to be a teenaged working class girl and the hooded top adds to the look of the social group in its stereo typical idea of the class and that’s what we where aiming for to use the audiences own stereo types against them. Also the other character is seen as more of a Middle class girl as she dresses more smartly at all Times during the film and this is shown when they Walk when she’s wearing a black blazer.
Religion/Spirituallity The women in the video is being represented as more of a Christian character and this is seen as more of a working class religion.
Age/Gender Both of the character are a young girl and young women so at no point did we try and change this so we made them look very young and stuff like that as well as using girls we try and show them as young and easily deceived and this is what we did with our film and how we showed them.
Conclusion To conclude I would say that we showed the girls in a very good light in terms of the ways that we were aiming to show them and we see this as a good thing because we represented there social group of not only girls but young working class girls well in terms of with the character grace and also the young middle class girl we represented well. This is important because we need to convey there story in as short a way as possible but also as detailed as possible within the opening few minutes.
