  • 1. How does your media product represent particular social groups?
  • 2. Constructionist theory • The constructionist theory tells us that the representations are reality. The opinions of the producer are affected by the context at the time, and the audience choose whether or not to accept these representations or not. • We can apply the constructionist theory to the characters within our production such as; the businessman, Ethan, and Ethan’s foster parents. • However it doesn’t just need to be people that we can apply the theory to, we can also apply it to the train station where the majority of opening sequence was filmed.
  • 3. Businessman
  • 4. Ethan
  • 5. Train Station
  • 6. Can your production be read as hegemonic?
  • 7. • Our production has one main hegemonic ideology which is created by the businessman. Upon the introduction of the businessman the binary opposition of Privileged VS. unprivileged is instantly established and we can see the clear divide in society between the upper and lower class. The businessman wears a suit and waistcoat and carries around his briefcase with him which contains all of his work. Whereas Ethan on the other hand simply wears casual clothes with his backpack which contains a spare set of clothes in. This shows that people who are within the upper class or A-B income bracket are much more fortunate than those who are only in the C2-E income bracket, also they have many more opportunities for more things for example the suit that he wears or the job that he owns. All of this looks at the ideology which tells us how people from a worse upbringing with less money and opportunity are supressed and don’t have a lot of options and just have to take what comes their way. Whereas people who are within the A-B income bracket have many more options to choose from and can dictate people like our antagonist does within our opening sequence.
