2. HOW DOES YOUR MEDIA PRODUCT REPRESENT PARTICULAR SOCIAL GROUPS?

Our Murderer wears clothes that possibly portray him as having a higher social class, a somewhat business man like appeal. We decided to represent him like this as it was believed that Jack the ripper (the person who we based the character on) was of a higher social class. Because of this dress it portrays the victim to be an adult, possibly adding to the stereotype of men being stronger and more violent. THE MURDERER’S DRESS CODE

In our media product we chose our victim to be dressed in a relatively generic running outfit. Doing this it hasn’t really revealed much about the victims background or social status. Having the victim abducted first could be shown stereotypically in films as the father or family has done something to upset the villain etc and this is revenge however in the opening the reasons behind this are not explained. If you follow the Jack the ripper story etc some believed that jack killed the women as they where of a lower social class. THE VICTIM’S DRESS CODE

Our murder is an adult male. This has a whole host of stereotypes. In films male serial killers are often portrayed as violent, strong, lack mercy, lack conviction, have family issues, or are orphans etc. As our thrillers face is not seen the audience does not know the age. One would assume due to high that it is an adult however as the face is not seen you can only guess age. With our villain being able to incapacitate his victim before killing her it shows that ‘Jack’ is fairly strong or knows where to hit. This could potentially drive home the stereotype of the male gender being more violent and stronger than women, and this is reflected through most fictional and real serial killers. To name some fictional examples: American Psycho (Patrick Bateman), Batman (pretty much every villain ever), Unbreakable (Mr. Glass). And some real life serial killers: Ed Gein, Jack The Ripper, The Zodiac Killer, and Albert Fish. All these iconic character are male maybe to fit the stereotype, maybe the stereotype fits them, or maybe it could just be a huge coincidence. What is certain is that they all have common traits between them making the choice of a male murderer a good one. THE MURDERER

The Victim is an young adult women, again this leads to a large amount of stereotypes when A. being in a thriller and B. being a victim. Female victims are often portrayed as being week, spoilt, a possible love interest, or a relation to someone powerful. As the victim is the only face visible in the opening the audience would have to rely on her facial emotion to possibly tell of things to come. In many real life and fictional instances the victim of serial killers are often female, this could because women are often portrayed as weaker and more vulnerable than men. One fictional example of this could be in Silence of the Lambs (Buffalo Bill). Some real examples of this could be Jack the Ripper and Ed Gein, these serial killers only targeted women. THE VICTIM

Another way you could say it relates to social class all though it is quite week, is the stereotype of forbidden love between a member of the lower and upper class. But then you replace the love with weird stalking and murder. A SLIGHTLY WEAKER CONNECTION
