2. How does your media productrepresent particular social groups?
The opening title sequence of ‘EDWARD.’ 
 
 
Female Protagonists
Our opening title sequence clearly depicts the image of vulnerable, helpless females indistress.
This is shown through the shots of the girls running through the forest as the audience caninfer they are running away from something, or someone stronger, and more dangerous thanthemselves.
These shots particularly represent social groups of vulnerable women as the long shotsemphasise the running action, and consequently , the need for escape.
 
The clothing of the girls in ‘Edward’ can be said to challenge the stereotypical appearance of a ‘damsel in distress’ which is often seen in horror films.
 
For example, the women in ‘Heavenly Creatures’ (1994), wore a variety of clothing in the
opening title sequence, to challenge or portray different social groups.
The long masculine coats at the very beginning challenge the typical image of a vulnerablewoman, however the white dresses in the analepsis, adheres to a more feminine group.
The females in ‘Edward’ challenge the typical social group of women, as they were dark
colours, and black leggings, as opposed to a typical, feminine dress.
Contrastingly, there is a medium shot of one of the girls wearing a bright red dress, toconnote the danger of the chase, through her innocence.
