How does your media productrepresent particular socialgroups?
My film represents gender portrayal. The maincharacter is female, who are commonly portrayedto be one of the following archetypes in mediaproducts:Femme FataleLoyal WifeDamsel in Distress In this instance, the female character is theDamsel in Distress as she is clearly the victimrunning away from something and being attacked;she is seen as vulnerable and the film wouldn’thave the same effect if the main character was amale as they are stereotypically seen as theheroes.
Bad Moon ( 1996):While on an expedition in Nepal, photo-journalist Tedand his girlfriend are attacked by a werewolf that kills herand savagely bites him.
My film also represents age. The costumeand the actress show the character to bequite young. This again shows hervulnerability because teenagers are mostlyseen as quite naive; an older woman mightseem less vulnerable.
I Was A Teenage Werewolf (1957):Tony Rivers, a troubled teenager at Rockdale High, isknown for losing his temper and overreacting. Within twosessions of therapy, it is suggested to Tony that he wasonce a werewolf.
