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, we
decided to choose a teen film. We had to make
sure 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 based
on 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 a
horror as it was more practical and realistic for us to a
As a group we wanted to create a different type of
teen movie different from others, we thought by
showing a group of different types of girls, but
showing that they can still be friends, this gets away
from the stereotypical view of only “popular girls can
Our storyline that we came up with was showing a group of four
girls getting ready to go to school, three of the girls who are the
punk who is known as Lauren, nerd who is known as Unis and the
ghetto girl who is known Shaniqua is getting ready in their own
surrounding, whilst the slut is in bed with her boyfriend. Whilst
getting ready and in bed they all receive the same text message
from the same boy who attends the same school as them, the
text message he sends reads "I've been thinking and I've come to
a decision, I've realized I love you and want to be with you" While
the slut's in bed with her boyfriend she leans over to read the text,
her boyfriend then leans over as well to try and read the
message, Courtney who is the slut then drops her phone and
rushes out of bed to get ready, her boyfriend is then left in bed
looking angry, she then picks up her keys and leaves to meet the
rest of her friends, forgetting her phone on the floor, this is our
enigma code for our film weather the sluts boyfriend picks up and
read's the message.
Unique selling point
What makes our film unique?
Goes against the conventions of a teen film.
Usually there are just one type of girls that are friends for example
all the popular girls being friends and leaving the "nerd" out,
whereas in our film we've decided to have a mixture of different
types of girls.
The reason for this is that we have tried to portray that although
each character has a different style, background, attitude and
personality they can still get along.
We chose to do this because fitting in at school is a big issue for
We feel by doing this it will encourage teenagers to see beyond
the appearance and focus on the personality of the person.
o The slut of the group
o More interested in make
up and boys rather than

Locations The locations we will be using for the
2 minute of our film will be within
each characters bedrooms and
bathroom and a school.
The props we chosen to use for our film are props that
teenagers use in their day to day life.
o Mobile Phones
o School Books
o School Bags
Our results showed that our
target audience mostly
expected to see “slut”
characters within a teenage
film, they mainly expected the
location to be within a school
and the main storyline was to
do with sex and relationships.
Our target audience for our film is for teenagers
aged 15 – 18. The reason for this is because our
film is based on teenagers and school life.
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.
We’ve chose this sound clip for when
the 4 girls meet up together and start
to walking into school, the reason for
this is because its also an upbeat
sound which shows attitude for then
the girls are walking. This would be
played at the end of our 2 minute

the audience is yet to know what’s going to happen.

its stereotypical of a girl and the font we chose was a

As a group we each took part within completing
tasks, we done a lot of the coming up with idea’s as a
group and done some of the tasks separately.
Some of the tasks we done separately were ..
There was a mixture of tasks that we needed to
complete, this varied from choosing our title of our
film, choosing an narrative, completing tasks on the
blog, putting our powerpoint together and research
to do with our film genres.
