Hassan• Hassan-My idea is about a group of teens from different social backgrounds with different stereotypical groups. I got this idea from one of my favorite teen film ‘the breakfast club’ with my own little twist. The teens would be in detention after school and realize that the teachers they thought were normal was actually not what they appeared to be. Not just the playground got stereotypical groups even the teachers lounge has the nerds and jocks. But that is just a little summary of what the film is about.• But how I want the opening sequence to be is half animated and half reality, the camera is going around the whole school in a POV of the audience, with a voice over of the main character explaining the groups to the audience. So you will see the jocks bullying the nerds the weird vampire group drinking fake blood and reading twilight novels and the cheerleaders walking down the corridors and finally it will end up at the lockers when you will see the main character opening his lockers and looking into the mirror and you slowly see his reflection changing from a animation into a reality characters and that’s when the screen will get slapped with a static shock and our group name will come up then the school bell will ring. Basically I want to mix American pie, Superbad, The breakfast club and my own little twist into one great film.
Vaneesha• My idea was that there was a teen character who introduces her school and the stereotypical students and teachers in it. After introducing the students it shows a fight happening in the playground between different stereotypical group which is most common in schools.
Rushik• My idea was that there were two hooded guys socializing with there backs turned to the camera in a the corner of a street which looks like there up to no good. One of the boys looks around and explains his life and whats he going through e.g. family, friends and school.• Another idea that I had was that the teachers from the school are patrolling the around corridors, because there was a tip-off that there are students are using drugs in school. The school call for security in the school to get more help with the search for the drug users.
Yannis• My idea is unique I do not want any characters involved. I just want the opening sequence to have props and slide shows (I got my inspired by napoleon dynamite). I want to use this idea because I do not want the plot to be given away as I want the audience to be familiar with the genre.• The opening sequence is like a typical teenage relationship, where a girls boyfriend physically harasses her. It involves drugs, alcohol etc..• HOWEVER….. I do want our film to be like a typical action adventure film. Like the protagonist running through the jungle (woods) without seeing his face so therefor this will create suspense for the audience. By not revealing the characters identity this will confuse the audience then cutting it with the credits which will make the audience think.
Film conventions• We are not planning to break any conventions, we want to stick to the stereotypical genre’s of a teen movie.• The teen conventions we’re are going to base our opening sequence is in a school, the soundtrack will be either r&b or pop rock. The costume will either be hoodies and tracksuits or average school clothes. The narrative will be the main characters.
Target audience• Our target audience would be 15+, mainly because we are aiming to target teenagers with similar aspects as the actors. Not only will be aiming at teenagers around the globe but we will still abstain the “cool factor’ you posses with a 15+ movie. As a group we was wondering whether or not we should keep the film 15+ or 12A but we know that it would have more emphasis as a teen movie. If there was slang with some swearing that would help the viewers to relate a bit more to our film.
Teen conventions• Typical teenagers• Drugs alcohol• Pop/rock/dark music/R&B• Condoms
