I chose to focus on the movie Scream because it's character (the killer) and the mask he wears is extremely recognizable and because most people are familiar with the plot of the killer calling women on phones. Similarly, Hotline Bling is trending right now and it's safe to say that the vast majority of people in my generation have seen this video by now and maybe even some of its parodies. Of these parodies was a very popular skit from SNL:
While this video is a very recent media sensation, the concept of retelling stories through other perspectives is not new; from websites like Texts from Dog (which shows imagined texts between a dog and its owner) to more serious social media pages like Humans of New York that seeks to tell people's stories through photos, social media stories are all around us.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
