Evaluation Q2: How does your media product represent particular social groups?

Alia talking about a movie still

What we tried to do with Dead Line is not necessarily try and represent a particular social group but to explain the story of someone who is a prostitute and a murderer. What we want to make clear is that we are not saying that all people in this profession are killers but we wanted to make a story that would capture peoples attention. With thrillers you don't necessarily have to go with the exact reality, you need a bit of exaggeration, and we wanted to make this character a cold blooded killer. This is a story of a prostitute who kills a large number of people she sleeps with and leaves a scarf as a way of giving detectives an idea of who it is but not exactly revealing her true identity, which is what we tried to do with most of the film and the characters in the first two minutes.
