In our thriller The character that is represented in our thriller opening is a working class, teenage boy.
Male Although him being male is clearly shown. We’ve represented this through the way he is presented to the audience. This is shown through his clothing. Males are seen to be quite messy and rough. We’ve made sure our main character has looked exactly like this. His costume involves a plaid shirt that is buttoned up wrong and slouchy jeans. His hair also looks quite dirty and messy. Most killers are male. In films males are mostly represented as tough and dominant. Cigarettes make people look more tough so we’ve had him smoking the near the beginning to half way through our opening.
Working Class You can tell from the mise en scene (his home) that he is working class. The cracked walls and unpainted surroundings clearly shows that he is not upper class. His clothing also represent a working class citizen. He’s dressed informally its rough and he’s not exactly wearing a tie and suit. I think we’ve portrayed him very negative but I believe we’ve portrayed him how the media would usually.
