The robbers are going to use a crowbar in order to break into the house, making them appear threatening and dangerous but the use of a lower class weapon still allows them to fit in with our desired image of young inexperienced robbers.
Also the use of high class weapons such as guns would make our opening scene unsuitable for our target audience and would not comply with our age rating of 12.
Other props that we are going to incorporate are valuable items for the robbers to steal such as jewellery, a laptop and money.
We want to equip the robbers with sacks so that they have somewhere to put the stolen items and gives the impression that they're going to steal a lot. Also as the sacks are black, fitting in with the theme of their costumes and the typical robber stereotype.
