  4. 4. Concept – Two world difference<br /> Two incredibly different people, both have exactly the same name – Sophia Marcovych coping with extremely diverse lifestyles. Two countries fighting – one democratic society and one war torn country, causing each girl to live in completely different ways. <br /> Sophia Marcovych was born on 12th February 1993 in Manhattan, New York. She was born to an extremely wealthy family, and has a very privileged life ever since. From mulberry handbags to Jimmy choo shoes at the age of twelve, Sophia has always had everything she wants. Driving around with her personal chauffer, Sophia has a completely materialistic existence. She wants for nothing and gets everything she demands.<br /> Sophia Marcovych was born on 12th February 1993 in Kabul, Afghanistan. Having lost her parents at the age of three, Sophia has been a street child. She spends her days rummaging through dustbins in hope of anything to eat and sleeps on the street corners at night, holding her only two possessions – a raggy, wool blanket from her mother and her tatty, soft toy dog that has been with her throughout- Amira. She needs for everything but asks for nothing.<br /> In Two World Difference – a five minute film we will show you; Two very different lifestyles. Two very different worlds. The only similarity being the name.<br /> But who is truly happy?<br />
  5. 5. Synopsis<br /> Seventeen year old Sophia Marcovych has always had the dream life. She was born and brought up in a very prestigious, wealthy and glamorous suburb of New York called Manhattan. Receiving nothing but designer goods and clothing since birth, and her Mercedes at the age of just 15 Sophia has become noting other than a little spoilt princess – a real ‘daddy’s little girl’. She demands and she always gets. This short film starts off with Sophia Marcovych, out on a day shopping with her personal shopper on an unlimited shopping budget funded by her father. When Sophia falls in love with a beautiful Mulberry handbag there is no stopping her. One look at the price tag and she decides she has to have it. She looks at her personal shopper, a big smile creeping all over her face and shrieks delightfully as, of course, she gets out her credit card. <br /> On the other side of the globe, a world away lives seventeen year old Sophia Marcovych. - A teenage girl with the same name, but an extremely opposite lifestyle. Sophia horrifically witnessed the death of both her parents in war torn Kabul, at just the age of three. The only thing that kept her going was the blanket her mother gave her to keep her warm at night and her best friend – her stuffed dog called Amira that her father gave to her at birth. Sophia spends most of her days begging on the streets and rummaging through dustbins in hope of any food she can find.<br /> These two lives are poles apart. Do we realise just how diverse our world is? Both these two girls are extreme victims of their environment, but are either truly happy?<br />

  11. 11. Costume List<br />Teenage ‘spoilt’ girl<br />Juicy couture tracksuit <br />Juicy couture handbag<br />Ugg boots <br />I phone<br />Hooped earrings<br />We have decided to dress our teenage girl in a ‘Juicy Couture’ tracksuit as this is what the teenagers in ‘My Super Sweet 16’ always wear when they are out shopping. It is also very stereotypically ‘Jordan’ and makes her appear to be very spoilt and superficial. She has a matching handbag and is holding an iphone which is a very expensive phone. <br />

  16. 16. Material Girls – Madonna
  17. 17. Billionaire – Travis McCoy</li></ul>In most of the short films that we watched, there was music playing over the top and very little dialogue. Therefore, we have decided to use no dialogue in our short film and have emotive music playing over the top to intensify the diversity of the two worlds and the drama. <br />
