The social groups we chose to represent were age and gender. We did this through our main character who is a male teenager. We thought this would be a good social group to represent as our group consisted of teenage boys meaning it would be easier to represent this social group ,with accuracy, in our sequence.
We wanted to challenge most the usual negative stereotype of teenage boys in the media which are listed in the table I made below. However we had to follow some of the stereotypes in order to make the character recognisable and familiar to the audience.
This table I made shows what the stereotypes of male teenagers are in the media, examples of the stereotypes in real media and how we followed or challenged them.
We challenged some negative stereotypes of male teenagers usually seen in real media such as gang violence and consumption of alcohol. However we conformed to some stereotypes as we wanted to make sure our character was still recognisable as a teenage male and thus related to the audience. We did this by making our character look and sound like a stereotypical teenager.
