Personality In all the shots we see Jennifer in her facial expressions and actions are always serious and purposeful. For example the over the should shot of her applying her lip stick where she doesn’t smile and is merely putting on the makeup she thinks the other individual she stalks would wear.The fact it’s a rich red colour is a contrast to Jennifer because Tiffany is of a higher class and social status then Jen as she wants to be her she is changing her status to try and become someone different as she isunhappy with her social status and her personality. Another example of social status is the fact Jen has taken multiple picture of tiffanysocialising and is glancing over them stuck onto the walls, this shows the Jen is jealous of Tiffs social status and Jen’s character is portrayed asjealous and she is seen instantly as a “wannabe”. At the beginning there is a pan of the room and Jen is sat in the corner huddled over, we only see her quickly, but this mise-en scene shows she’s in her room alone,without any friends which contrasts from the open space of Tiffany may who is out socialising and surrounded by friends.
Tidy, pristine hair that is well looked after and looks hygienic and fashionable.

Personality We do not actually see Tiffany in the title sequence, however we see certain photographs and shots of her with friends, in all these shots she looks very pampered, getting in and out of various cars, always with friends, laughing and joking. Her social status looks high and she is middle class so she has quite a lot of money, therefore she has a lot of materialistic items, we show this by the places she is like the locations and mise-en scene, for example the station with a boy who she’s laughing with and outside her house which is in a posh residence in the neighbourhood. It contrasts to Jen because she is hidden away and not seen in any glamorous lifestyle shots or positivity as she doesn’t smile. Mise-en scene andlocation have been stereotypical in our title sequence but successful as it is the best way to show the lifestyle differences between our two characters and the root of the jealousy.
It is normal to experience jealousy when females are younger and our characters teenagers, which is the age where everyone is the most self conscious and everyone tries to fit in with trends and wants to be accepted. The social group of age is not very diverse in our piece because the storyline centres around the teens and the target audience is aimed at 15 year olds and upwards. We have broken the stereotype with ages as the stalker is normally of an older age, however our characters are very similar in ages, with less then a year separating them. Age is shown by there mannerisms being similar. Age is an important theme as it is the main reason why Jennifer has the obsession because she wants to fit in.
Age is portrayed using costume as teenagers wear younger more fashionableclothing, we made sure to dress our characters in clothes we though teenagersare most likely to wear using the stereotypical view.Certain Locations that younger people are seen to visit more were used forexample the train station and other places like the supermarket and Tiffshouse.Age is portrayed through this because teenagers are likely o hang out at trainstations and shops, this is shown in the picture of tiffany on the wall throughoutthe 2 minute title sequence
At her age most are worried about there appearance and want to look good andtry and be fashionable but the only thing Jennifer is worried about is lookinglike tiffany, although age helps show that teenagers want to fit in, there shewants to be like the popular girl.Her locations are completely opposite and unusual to be inside for a teen.The complete opposite to Tiffany, shes young and should be out socialising,.This is why we know there is something wrong with Jennifer because she is notin the stereotypical places and socialising. Her actions are odd and all verystructured.
StereotypesWe have used the idea of having recognisablestereotypes within our genders, which are the popular girl and the outsider, males are absent which is breaking the stereotype as they are usually the men stalking the woman!
