We decided to choose lauren based on our genre research into Pretty in Pink 1986 which features a the protagonist (a girl who is similar to who we tried to portray lauren as).
- this is something we thought would work well and create a artistic twist on a classic rom com between a jock and a cheerleader.
we also took inspiration for the from the film Heathers 1988 to decide our popular cheerleader type as we felt the opening to this was produced in a good way and the way the characters were dressed and portrayed was interesting and this is something we wanted to replicate.
|socially rejected character|
we found that Trick or Treat 1986 was an inspiring film to base our school scenes on because he is a socially rejected character and this fitted nicely with our socially rejected character that being the protagonist (the girl).
