Evaluation Q2

  1. 1. New action romance film “Red Bullet” hit the cinemas at the beginning of this month and has been a hit, creating a new breed of men and women all over! People are talking all over about the twists and turns the film threw at the audience, but just how did the film use so- cial groups to get us all so hooked? Beth Taylor spills all! Throughout cre- ating our product I ensured that I looked at typical repre- sentations at mainly gender and social class to ensure that our characters were reflective of the social group. Where Jamie is concerned, we have ensured that she is typically more lower class than our other protagonist, Hunter as we believe this would allow a more of a dra- matic twist as Hunter chases after Jamie and not the other way round, we have made Jamie lower class and female as typically this will make her appear weaker and less supe- rior to Hunter as women are seen as weak and vulnerable, alongside this Hunter is of a higher class. However, we have shown working class women in a more dominant and respectful light as they are usually shown as passive however, throughout Jamie is shown to make her own deci- sions and not be dependent on what Hunter expresses, this is shown within the flash forward when Hunter pleads her to stop yet she caries on running as she is more driven by her ambition and criminal career rather than her roman- tic life with Hunter, this per- ceiving working class wom- en as driven and more ca- reer focused-not weak and passive. To reflect her typical work- ing class further, we en- sured that with her intro- duction scene she was por- trayed as the typical “girl next door” regarding her costume as we dressed her in an ordinary normal pink dressing gown that is ex- tremely basic and common for many typical house holds alongside the colour pink being strongly related to femininity and women; giving her the false repre- sentation of a “girly” girl in order to create more inter- est and entertainment when it is revealed that she is the criminal, as typically women are perceived as incapable and almost too “loving” to harm anything. Furthermore, regarding the setting we have included common bedroom items that also reflect her gender by providing pink curtains to again reflect femininity alongside including basic furniture which is white and plain, reflecting the typical convention of the working class not being able to afford the higher range fur- niture but basic necessities. As the opening sequence develops, we have again portrayed the working so- cial class in a positive hard working light, rather than com- mon and lazy to appeal to a wider audience. Thus being shown as she has an alarm set to wake, showing that she has places to be and things to do, reflecting the idea that she has a schedule and things to do, ra- ther than the stereotypical low- er class of being lazy and stay- ing in bed for long periods. As Jamie is shown to get up imme- diately and begin her daily rou- tine, we have ensured that she is still shown as lower working class as she follows certain ste- reotypes of the social group. For example, typically as lower working class people have more free time than the upper clas- ses, they are stereotyped as watching a lot more day-time TV, thus represented within our production as once she has made her breakfast, she goes back to bed in order to eat her cereal and watch day-time TV, thus shown within the back- ground as “Jeremy Kyle” is showing however we have only lightly used this stereotype as we do not want her to be per- Production Times Page 11 Image: Footage from Red Bullet- Jess Tandy as Jamie

Also when producing the film, we have represented men in the typical masculine manner which was popular within the 1970’s within ac- tion films such as James Bond where usually men are muscular, unemotional and rather dismissive of women, they are usually violent and upper class, we have been able to portray this in many ways. For example to reflect Hunter’s strength and pow- er we have ensured that he is working out and doing weights as part of his morn- ing routine, thus showing his strength and dominance alongside this he awakes in a blue bed, a colour stereo- typically related to men and masculinity. By doing so, this has allowed us to create more drama and excitement when Hunter is shown as emotional within the flash forward.

For ex- ample to reflect Hunter’s strength and power we have ensured that he is working out and doing weights as part of his morn- ing routine, thus showing his strength and dominance alongside this he awakes in a blue bed, a colour stereo- typically related to men and masculinity. By doing so, this has allowed us to cre- ate more drama and excite- ment when Hunter is shown as emotional within the flash forward. Through using mise en sce- ne we have also enabled to compare both Hunter and Jamie through their wake up routine helping develop some similarities between the two which allows us to portray both social groups as almost equal rather than Hunter having more superi- ority depending on his up- per social class, as men- tioned previously, this will also help us create a posi- tive representation for the lower working class as it shows that there are mini- mal differences between the two lives and how the others live in comparison thus shown as they both have extremely similar cos- tumes as they begin to re- flect typical gender types however as the production develops, they appear to challenge these, allowing us to present women and men in a controversial light.
