Bio This is a treatment for my A2 media coursework for my film trailer, named blood ‘n’ Bone.
Actors/Characters Tim Farr – James ‘T-Lawson’ Flynn Connoly – Rio ‘Big R’ Johnson Matt Borg – Marcel Jake Thorne – Jimi ‘B-Dawg’ Smith
James ‘T-Lawson’ James ‘T-Lawson’ is the main character of my film, he is a young adolescent, about 17, who after watching too many American ‘G’ films thinks he can start a gang with Jimi ‘B-Dawg’ smith. He’s a tall ,skinny, kind of white version of Snoop Dogg, who, may not look like it but actually has brains & is a loyal & decent person, but has a dream of being riches & smokes too many drugs. During the film he has an argument with another friend Rio ‘Big R’ Johnson & T-Lawson & B-Dawg proceed to fall out with Big R & Marcel, which sparks a gang war, resulting in Big R’s death.
Rio ‘Big R’ Johnson Rio ‘Big R’ Johnson is a giant of a man, even though he is only 18. He comes from Jamaica, but lives in England. He is a small time drug dealer but thinks he’s the top dog. He is close friends with Marcel, B-Dawg & T-Lawson and is a figure B-Dawg & T-Lawson look up to a lot. This all end when after a disagreement with T-Lawson & B-Dawg, spark a gang war & T-Lawson kills Big R.
Jimi ‘B-Dawg’ Smith Jimi ‘B-Dawg’ Smith, is T-Lawsons best friend & they do everything together. B-Dawg is part Ghanaian and has dreams of becoming a big hip-hop artist/producer like Dr Dre, who is his idol, but like T-Lawson he smoke too much drug, but he is determined, and between him & T-Lawson they hope to raise enough money to record a demo. He is also very close to Big R, but when Big R insults T-Lawson & they fall out B-Dawg has T-Lawson’s back & although B-Dawg doesn't shoot Big R, he drives the car that T-Lawson gets out of. He is 17/18.
Marcel Marcel is the old wise man of the four friends, he’s been there & done that, he’s about 20 & is always giving advice & useless information to the other three, he is also very tall, but has a bit of a belly on him. When Big R fall out with T-Lawson & B-Dawg, Marcel refuses to take a side & is not seen again, but when B-Dawg & T-Lawson talk about wanting to make a Demo, Marcel supports them and says he want to be heavily involved, whereas Big R plays them down & says they wont make it.
