Unexpected? Pitch Presentation By Yasmine, Sharnece And Nicola.
Brief Our task was to produce a 2 minute opening scene for a film which included titles. We was allowed to choose any genre of our choose, wedecided to choose a teen film. We had to makesure we didn‟t give to much of the film away and had to make sure there was an enigma code to keep the audience interested.
Genre - Teen movie.We‟ve decided to have the genre of our film basedon a teen film.Why we chose a teen film instead of a horror film.As a group we chose to do a teen film instead of ahorror as it was more practical and realistic for us to ateen movie.As a group we wanted to create a different type ofteen movie different from others, we thought byshowing a group of different types of girls, butshowing that they can still be friends, this gets awayfrom the stereotypical view of only “popular girls canbe friends”.
Our StorylineOur storyline that we came up with was showing a group of fourgirls getting ready to go to school, three of the girls who are thepunk who is known as Lauren, nerd who is known as Unis and theghetto girl who is known Shaniqua is getting ready in their ownsurrounding, whilst the slut is in bed with her boyfriend. Whilstgetting ready and in bed they all receive the same text messagefrom the same boy who attends the same school as them, thetext message he sends reads "Ive been thinking and Ive come toa decision, Ive realized I love you and want to be with you" Whilethe sluts in bed with her boyfriend she leans over to read the text,her boyfriend then leans over as well to try and read themessage, Courtney who is the slut then drops her phone andrushes out of bed to get ready, her boyfriend is then left in bedlooking angry, she then picks up her keys and leaves to meet therest of her friends, forgetting her phone on the floor, this is ourenigma code for our film weather the sluts boyfriend picks up andreads the message.
Unique selling pointWhat makes our film unique?Goes against the conventions of a teen film.Usually there are just one type of girls that are friends for exampleall the popular girls being friends and leaving the "nerd" out,whereas in our film weve decided to have a mixture of differenttypes of girls.The reason for this is that we have tried to portray that althougheach character has a different style, background, attitude andpersonality they can still get along.We chose to do this because fitting in at school is a big issue forteenagers. We feel by doing this it will encourage teenagers to see beyondthe appearance and focus on the personality of the person.
Courtney The SLUT! o The slut of the group o More interested in make up and boys rather than education. o Her boyfriend and friends are seen as the most important o Her appearance is striking o Dumb one, as she doesnt‟t really pick up on peoples feelings and emotions. o She does what pleases her.
Lauren The PUNK! o The punk of the group o She likes to think of herself as „cool‟ o She‟s mainly into her music and spending time with her friends o She takes pride in her appearance o She can be quite loud at times but when her headphones are in she‟s in her own world o Besides music she also has a lot of time for her education
UnisThe NERD! o The nerd of the group o Her main focus is school and education o She‟s quite a trendy nerd o She likes spending time with her friends, but would quite happily sit in a room with books o She takes pride in her appearance and likes to be neat and tidy o She‟s the problem solver of the group and likes to make sure everyone‟s happy
ShaniquaThe GHETTO GIRL! o The ghetto/hood type of the group o She‟s loud and arrogant, but also smart o She‟s seen as the tom boy and acts more masculine out of the group o She cares about her appearance and hair but isn‟t really bothered about dressing up as she mainly feels comfortable in sports wear.

Sound We chose this sound clip for the opening of our film, the reason for this is because its more of an upbeat sound and is kind of girly. As a group we thought it reminded us of the “Bratz” film which is also more of a girly film.
