Representations: Representations By Divine Mckengo Representation: Representation “ the description or portrayal of someone or something in a particular way .” For my trailer, I wish to make clear to the audience the representations of my characters. Through the use of costume and music. Zoe Lily Zoe: Zoe Zoe is the main antagonist. She is the mastermind behind the horror that happened all those months ago. She is seen to been dressed mainly in black and grey which represents her as being strong and intimidating, black is understated but also very loud, b lack denotes strength and authority; it is considered to be a very formal, elegant, and prestigious colour which is why I chose that Zoe wear that colour, it’s very ominous. She is an archetype because she is only 11 and no one would expect her to be so devious. Lily: Lily Lily Royce is a complex character, at the start she is 10. She is in her school uniform walking with her younger sister like a regular school girl. This is the ‘utopia’ stage. Later on, when Zoe and her sister are discussing their earlier actions, she is clearly distressed and scared and remorseful. But her is stern and cold with her sister, bearing in mind she is only 11 years old. It’s quite unsettling. During this scene, Zoe is dressed in black clothing, the connotations of black ( m ournful, rebellious) where she is represented as sinister and not as innocent and sweet as she should be, even though she is just a little girl. Lily has a pink coat on to represent how girl and sweet she is, but she has black gloves on this connotates as her having ‘blood on her hands’. As the months go on, she is filmed in her pyjamas to show her vulnerability but she has since changed her ways and her good side is showing through.
