Hi, I'm an AS Media student, and this blog contains research into the different aspects of film and media, specializing in the Slasher genre. The research has all been put towards the development of my coursework production 'Camp Ivy', which I co-produced with Poppy and Millie. Our coursework has been influenced by the rural locations and mise-en-scene in Friday the 13th and Eden Lake.

PP - Actors and Casting

Sydney Prescott - Scream

We cast Alys as the final girl as she has dark brown hair which is comparable to final girls from a lot of slasher films. She also has done a lot of drama which meant we could trust her to act well and work well when given direction.


We cast Ben as the outsider of the group as he was willing to play this part and when asked to found it easy to portray this character. 

Jock (Dylan) from All the Boys love Mandy Lane
We cast Danny as the Jock of the group as he also has had some experience with acting and found it easy to switch into the role of a Jock. Being good friends with people in the group meant he was very willing to participate and like Ben and Alys listened to our direction well and understood what we wanted to achieve.


scream queens
Poppy played the part of the scream queen as she is blonde (fitting the scream queen stereotype) and the opening to our film was based around the scream queen being the victim. Because Poppy was part of the production team, by having her cast as the scream queen it made it easier to re shoot as she was able to give up more free time and volutneer.
