5 main characters needed:
2x \"cool\" 17 year old characters
2x \"uncool\" 17 year old characters
Hoody Styles - ages 18, best mate of the uncool pair.
Short comedy film, 30 mins long about two pairs of friends from different schools. The \"cool\" pair are looked up to by the \"uncool\" pair, who want to be like them. The tables turn though after plenty of rivalry and oneupmanship. Later on in the film, the character of Hoody Styles is introduced as the best mate of the uncool pair, and the (previously) cool pair are in awe of someone so cool, and by now are the ones going to extreme lengths to emulate someone they now themselves look upto.
If the characters work well together on screen, an online mini series of shorter episodes, each featuring in one main characters could be produced.
Overall, aiming for a mixture of Inbetweeners style comedy, together with the darker, more serious issues featured in The Cut (a brilliant online series on the BBC a few years ago) - bullying, peer pressure, gang culture.
I\'m training to be a British Sign Language interpreter so want to film myself interpreting the on-screen dialogue, and add this to the corner of the film. Planning to add a deaf character somewhere too to show deaf people in a positive way.
