How does your media product represent particular social groups?
Social groups I will look at:
My film is a psychological thriller which starts with a woman alone in a forest. We get a feeling that she is being followed and that she is trying to escape from something. From my synopsis; it establishes that the woman is going to outwit a killer. This suggests that women are smarter than they are given credit for and goes against the way that they are usually portrayed as they are usually portrayed as weak.
Carol Clover’s theory of the Final Girl can be applied to my title sequence and my female representation. This is because the woman is being followed by the man and will eventually be threatened by him to show us her weakness. However; the woman will eventually outwit him.
Due to me using a teenager who is a relatively young person; it can show us how vulnerable the girl is as she is being followed by the camera. This view of the girl is how girls and women are stereotypically viewed and looked at in the media; as weak, vulnerable and feeble.
