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

John Doe
Jack Torrance
 We used a black teenage male for the killer for our film but in se7ven the killer was a white male who was a lot older than our killer. This shows that we are not representing the typical antagonist as most of them are white. Also our antagonists represents a crazy and disturbing mad which is very similar to Jack Torrance in The Shining. They are both mentally unstable. Jack inspired us for our antagonist but we did not want a white male so therefore we used a black male challenge a typical thriller convention. 

Our film represents a stereotypical view of women where they are seen as vulnerable and naive. Claire who is the female in our film is portrayed as a innocent and weak person who can be easily taken advantage off.  This is similar to Marion in Psycho she was a easy target to murder which where we got this inspiration from for our character.
