Collectable Identity: My Main Character
The identity of my main character will be constructed in such a way that it will confuse the audience. His age has already been decided, he is a young, middle aged man. We feel that this will construct his identity as an adult, a mature and experienced person who has learned the basics in life survival
We made him a male because we felt that this would bring out the stereotype from our audience; men are dominant, controlling, they feel that they are better than women, etc. Then, we shall change this by including a woman as an ally, a woman who will be the leader for our main character.
With the ethnicity, we will not show the skin of the main character in the teaser, he will be in silhouette. This means that the audience will have their own thoughts as to what colour this person is. His actions can not be stereotyped by his ethnicity.
The views of the man can be seen through the film title “The Promise”. He feels that he is responsible for the consequences of not fulfilling any promise he makes and, due to the circumstances that he has been presented with, this may be his worst promise yet. This presents him as loyal, truthful, but not thorough in his thoughts.
He views the world in a realistic way and has no time to play around with life as he knows the importance of life. He likes to live in the moment and give his best in whatever he has to do.
With political views, he feels that there is to much lies and conspiracies within all parties to believe in them but, keeps up to date so that he know what goes on in the world.
His clothing style is smart but, casual, chinos, wranglers, boat shoes, vans, converse, jumpers, and polo shirts. He feels that he does not need to make a huge effort but be presentable. He also does not like to stand out due to the fact of unseen events that may occur.
