This is no typical love story. (Boy meets girl and love/ hate relationship).
“ What would you do if you found out that you had a twin you never knew existed? Will they make the best of this situation and realise that they may actually be able to help one another.”
He is the typical popular teenager boy, great at sports and everybody wants to be his friend.
She is the new kid at school and finds it hard to fit in, due to her geeky looks and positive attitude towards school work.
He wants to get into college but hasn’t got the grades to get into the one he wants to
She is just trying to be accepted for being herself in a society all about looks and fashion which he has never really been a part of it.
Why did they never find out they had a twin? What will they learn from each other? Why is it not a typical love story? What makes it different? How do they end up in the same school? What kind of love story is this? Why did the parents choose to separate them?

Both male and female target audience, although this will be more appealing to the girls. 11-18 year olds
Preferably, the actors will look like they could be non-identical twins, as I have been unable to find real non-identical twins from different genders.
I will use actors within the school as this will make it easier for me to do scenes with them during the school day as they will always be on location.
I want my scenes to look as realistic as possible which is why it will be good to shoot the scenes in a usual school environment during their actual lunch breaks.
I will only have to look at the two main character’s costumes, as the female has to look geeky and the boy more trendy and in fashion as he is popular.
I will just need to ask about the clothing they already own, which will reduce the cost of this production as I will not have to purchase any new items. As for the other students which will appear as extras can just be dressed in their usual daily clothing.
The St Marylebone school : This will be a convenient location, as I will have access to the school 5 days a week during school hours and even later if necessary. I will also have access to the school canteen, in which some of my scenes will take place. I will be able to film during the lunch hours will be helpful to shoot a crowded canteen which will look realistic.
