Media evaluation question

  1. 1. HOW DOES YOUR MEDIA PRODUCT REPRESENT PARTICULAR SOCIAL GROUPS?
  2. 2. ETHNICITIES • IN OUR OPENING SEQUENCE THERE IS NO ETHNIC DIVERSITY, THIS IS DUE TO THE FACT THAT WE DIDN’T FEEL THAT THIS WAS A MAJOR THEME IN OUR FILM SO WE DIDN’T NEED IT. ALSO WE DID NOT HAVE ANY ACTORS FROM DIFFERENT ETHNIC BACKGROUNDS AT OUR DISPOSAL. • THE THEME OF OUR FILM DIDN’T REALLY WARRANT ANY ETHNIC DIVERSITY, WITH MORE RESOURCES WE WOULDVE INCLUDED ETHNIC DIVERSITY AND MADE IT A THEME IN OUR FILM.
  3. 3. GENDER • IN OUR FILM WE HAVE NOT USED A FEMALE THIS IS TO PLAY ON THE STEREOTYPE THAT MEN ARE SUPERIOR TO WOMEN AND THAT THEY ARE WEAK. AGAIN WE HAD THE PROBLEM THAT WE DIDN’T HAVE AN ACTRESS AT OUR DISPOSAL. WE WANTED TO TRY AND DISPLAY BRAVADO IN THE MAIN CHARACTER THUS WHY WE PLAYED ON THE STEREOTYPE THAT WOMEN ARE WEAK.
  4. 4. OUR FILM WAS AIMED AT A YOUNGER AUDIENCE, SO WE DECIDED TO USE YOUNGER ACTORS, ALTHOUGH WE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO USE AN OLDER ACTOR AS WE DID NOT HAVE ONE AVAILABLE AND THEY WOULD NOT FIT IN WITH THE PLOT OF OUR FILM. A BOY TEENAGER IS FOUND DEAD, SHWOING THAT DESPITE ALL THE BRAVADO MEN CAN BE JUST AS VULNERABLE AS EVERYOEN ELSE. AGE GROUPS
  5. 5. RELIGION •WE DIDN’T WANT TO INCLUDE RELIGION IN OUR FILM AS IT WOULD CAUSE IT TO BE OVER COMPLICATED, ALSO RELIGION IS A VERY SENSITIVE SUBJECT MEANING WE WOULD HAVE TO CHANGE THE PLOT TO FIT AROUND IT. •TO PROPERLY REPRESENT RELIGION SYMBOLISM IS NEEDED BUT WE DID NOT WANT TO OVERCOMPLICATE OUR FILM USING SYMBOLISM AND ALSO WE DID NOT WANT TO SUBJECT OUR FILM TO CONTROVERSY.
