2) How does your media product represent particular social groups?

Our media project doesn’t target any particular race and depict them in a particular fashion but we do represent a particular social group that being ‘Teenagers’, it could be argued that we portray them as irresponsible and reckless due to the fact our Tyler Johnson character drowned in the river as shown in the montage .The use of the low angle shot depicts one of our characters Dylan Patel to have particular power and dominance which in actual fact isn’t true as he has no control over the situation in which he is in ...


Our opening sequence doesn’t show any female characters at all meaning the film is very male     dominated and males of a particular age that being  17 -19 , which also relates to the audience which our opening sequence is aimed at .


4) Who would be the audience for your media product?

Our target audience would be the demographic of young adults aged between 15 to 25, earlier investigations we carried out indicated that many of our target audience found conventional thrillers to be boring and many felt as if our ‘urban supernatural thriller’ would be something which was appealing to them as it pushed the boundaries for low budget British film making. The area in which our film is set is South London which means it is given the image of being ‘gritty’ a film which is very much similar to ours in the sense of setting and target demographic is ‘Attack The Block’
                                                                       

3) What kind of media institution might distribute your media product and Why?

Our movie as it is quite low budget and therefore would appeal to companies like Vertigo films and Verve films … as these companies are specialists in the field of distributing low budget British thrillers Vertigo Films are known for distributing films such as Bronson, London to Brighton, Street Dance 1 & 2, Doghouse;
        
                                    
The reason as to why I think that these companies would be successful in distributing our media product is because they are renowned for discovering new British talent within the media industry an example of this is Verve films distributing films such as Bullet Boy, Wake Wood and 1 Day; all of which are of a similar genre to ours.

Music ...

It was difficult finding music that suited our project ; as we felt as if we needed something that reflected the mood  of the characters and the tension within the scene itself , this presented our group with a problem within itself which eventually was solved with the guidance of our teacher who pointed us in the direction of 'Winkies Dream' from Mullholland Drive (David Lynch , 2001) it was from this that we took inspiration for our music .
