How does your media product represent particular social groups?
As my film is based on an average nerdy teenager, I have chosen to go down the path of quite a stereotypical social group. This was not to hard to achieve with the costume, as a simple band t-shirt and pair of ‘slacks’ gave the look of a character who may not be considered socially ‘cool’, but still gives the audience confidence that he is a good ‘hero’ for the film.
These are images of typical 'nerdy types' that are what the public stereotype them to be
I do think that my brother (who I cast for the role of the films protagonist) gave an excellent mid-ground between nerdy outcast, and hidden talent/reliable character.
