Representation Task

fIt's a Boy Girl Thing (2006) PosterGender: Steryotypes

For a representation of gender i have decided to loom at the film 'Its a boygirl thing' this film is defined as a rom com and therefore immeadtly aimed at women. the poster shows the woman acting like a male and the man is acting feminine. this could mean that the film is based around the way women see men and men see women. since the behaviours of the two charaters are swapped it shows that if they were normal the two people would be behaving as normal. the age of the charaters shows that it is targeted at teens or otherwise viewed as a chick flick. the female charater on the poster is clearly acting 'laddidh' by being slumped on the seat and having a football under her foot. where as the male charater is sitting poiletly and reading a book. the poster clearly shows us that women are supposed to act poite whereas males to act like they dont care by switching the attitudes of the two,

Age: Game 'GTA5'

For the representaion of age i have chosen the game Grand theft auto 5. the cover of the game clearly states that te game is aimed at the 18+ range however most people copuld tell this fomr the images on the front. firstly the images of peticular charaters carrying weapins and guns, these items tell the audience that the game will include violence and since nearly all the images contain a weapn the game will be about fighting. also the image of a female dresses in little clothing shows that the game will contain adult themes not sutible for those under 18. the image of a vicious dog could indicate that the game itself will contain visious content.
the way this game cover has been presented clearly show that the agme is not for those under 18.
National and Regional identity:  The Valleys

For the representation of national and regional identity i have used the show the valleys. in the show welsh people are seen as dull and stupid. the show shows the part of wales that most people dont see. the rough charaters have portrayed wales in a rediclous way by makimg fun for the country and making people believe that the people of wales are all alcoholics and party animals. the identity that they have managed to portray is one of idoicy.

Events: Download -Festival
The download music festival is an event that consists of diffrent bants preformaing for thousands of fans. the poster for the festival shows who the headliners are for the event. the download theme is dark and most of the bands are either rock or metal meaniung that people who enjoy that type of music are more likley to visit the festival. the colours that have been used are dark and they have used a lighting effect this could symbolise the festival is full of metal and rock bands.

Choosing A Genre

The Genre that i have chosen is  SiFi/ Horror. i have chosen this genre because i enjoy watching fims such as 'I am legend','28 Days Later' and 'Legion'.
the fim which i have decided to do an analysis on is the film poster on I am Legend.
the poster shows a lone man and his dog walking along what appears to be a deserted city. The background of the image shows that the city is in disrepair and that there are no other signs of life from this we get the impression that he is the last person alive and the only companion that he has is his dog. The poster has used CGI to create a deserted city and the colour of the sky.The text that has been used keeps to a constant theme and both fonts look good together. The poster has the text central so that the image itself is clearly visible ti the audience. The poster of the movie gives off a Disaster feel and that there has been some sort of apocalyptic event. the fact that they do not show the villian of the movies makes the viewer curios of what the movies storyline will be.

The dvd cover shows a closer and more detailed version of will smith with his companion. if you look closer he is carrying a gun, this could symbolize that he need to protect himself from something. on the back of the dvd cover it shows images from the movie itself giving the viewier a sneak peak at clips from the film. they have displayed the images on the back in a film reel making it look intresting and detailed. they have included an image of the fim on the spine of the dvd case this shows people what dvd it is when not on display.
the effects that they have used in the dvd cover is putting a glow behind the charters giving making them look more important. the outfit that he is wearing looks like he is a survivor and the fact that the clothes look dirty and tatterd may indicate that he is to busy to wash them or that he has more important things to do.
