We gathered the inspiration for ‘Edward’ from many areas.
“Heavenly Creatures” (1994)
After watching the opening title sequencein class, my group decided to incorporate theidea of girls running through the forest,however used 3 girls, rather than the original2.

This idea lead us to the novel
Caseof Dr Jekyll and Mr
by Robert LouisStevenson. We consequently incorporatedthis idea into the personality of ourprotagonist,

as it is not a typical,modern name.
