We decided that our protagonist would be a female character, and we decided to make the film focus on representations of age and gender.
The powerpoint presentation below contains a summary of some of the ways in which we have represented Stacey.
We wanted our character to come across as mysterious and dangerous. We thought that in order to do so, she would need to have a cold personality because this way she can seem like she has a lot to hide, as she is not too friendly. In our opening, her phone call with Ryan seems quite friendly as she fake laughs and sounds happy, however at the end of the call we decided she should roll her eyes because this connotes her thinking of him as annoying and that she doesn't really look forward to meeting him.
We tried to make her an unconventional young female character in film, because of her danger, however her character is very stereotypical of a femme fatale, out to get what they want.
We chose to represent young females as a social group because this was the most relatable for us. I think we represented our social group well through Stacey's character, by conforming to the stereotypes of the group, but also making her more unconventional, as both the protagonist and the antagonist to the film.
