We want our robbers to be portrayed as inexperienced amateurs who are committing their first crime. This can be represented through the use of young teenage actors and through their clothing.
However, our robbers are still going to conform with traditional robber stereotypes such as wearing black clothing and carrying black sacks. This not only makes our opening scene more realistic but also makes the robbers appear threatening and hostile which fits well within our crime drama genre.
Robbers are normally portrayed as male, but we are going to have two female actors playing the part of the robbers making our film unique and allowing it to stand out compared to already existing films.
This is beneficial as we need to ensure that the costumes cater to the audiences expectations and desires, making sure they enjoy the film and continue to be engaged throughout.
