  8. 8. How does your media product represent particular social groups ? Teenagers in society today Break conventions of showing mental health in the cinema. Add humor to what people don’t discuss regularly about OCD. There are two representations in our film Normal Teen OCD teen is represented as: is represented as: Messy Naïve Lazy Girly Smoker Obsessively clean unhealthy Health freak/paranoid
  9. 9. How does your media product represent particular social groups ? Although our media product sticks to the themes and conventions of feature films. We would like to think that we have broken the boundary of showing mental health in comedy. Our film introduces two characters who are the direct opposites of each other. One of the characters being obsessively clean to the point of OCD, and the other being completely scruffy and disgusting.
  10. 10. Mainstream Independent
  11. 11.  The audience for our film would be teens from the age of 14-18. This film would appeal to that age group because it includes issues that affect them, for example the daily morning routine before school . Our film is aimed at teens who enjoy drama/comedies and socially real dramas such as Skins or the In-betweeners on television.
  12. 12. How did you attract/address your audience? creating an enigma By creating questions that the audience would want answers to (are these twins, are they related?) using musicWe used a contemporary soundtrack that would appeal to a young audience Mode of Addresswe wanted to address our audience in a way that did not make them seem young and stupid. Offering real characters that are not ‘fake’ in any way
  13. 13. How do you attract/address an audience? We used bright contrasting colours with each of the characters to match their characters. The neat twin has light pastel colored. We hoped that this attention to detail would attract the audience
  14. 14. What have you learnt about technologies from the process of constructing this product? •Technologies made our film and made us into prosumers •Open source software. We media allowing us to create quality •Creativity. Technologies meant we could be very creative •Professional editing software In order to make our film we had to learn to use Final Cut Pro. We also learnt to use celtex to create our script
  15. 15. Technologies We Used•Final cut pro•Celtx•Photoshop for our production logos
  16. 16. We learnt a great deal as we progressed from the preliminary task. We have learnt that making afilm needs a lot of research and strong planning with a greater amount of detail
