Gene Hunt

In Episode 1, Drake’s arrival at the station causes havoc: all the male officers believe her to be a prostitute because of her clothing: red leather mini skirt, black stockings and a fur coat. This representation is anchored by frequent low-angle shots that tilt up her body, and there is also the iconic low-angle shot of Gene Hunt framed centrally between her thighs. Clearly audiences are being invited to share in the spectacle of Drake’s body, drawing on what feminist film theorist Laura Mulvey calls the ’male gaze’. The sexism is further evidenced by the fact that the name ‘Alex’ is androgynous, therefore the squad assume that their new DI will be a man; the attitude towards female officers is confounded by DS Carling’s remark that ‘female DI’s should not be shag-worthy’. media magazine Choices character ? what they will wear gestures or mannerisms accent / voice hair style / makeup setting ? where / location colours / textures back drop props camera ? distance / size of shot angle of shot variety of shot whose point of view editing ? order of shots transitions special effects speed of cuts sound ? what the characters hear what the characters say background noises music to create emotion How do the decisions made
