Short comedy film, 30 mins long about two pairs of friends from different schools. The "cool" pair are looked up to by the "uncool" pair, who want to be like them. The tables turn though after plenty of rivalry and oneupmanship.

Later on in the film, the character of Hoody Styles is introduced as the best mate of the uncool pair, and the (previously) cool pair are in awe of someone so cool, and by now are the ones going to extreme lengths to emulate someone they now themselves look upto.

If the characters work well together on screen, an online mini series of shorter episodes, each featuring in one main characters could be produced.

Overall, aiming for a mixture of Inbetweeners style comedy, together with the darker, more serious issues featured in The Cut (a brilliant online series on the BBC a few years ago) - bullying, peer pressure, gang culture.

I'm training to be a British Sign Language interpreter so want to film myself interpreting the on-screen dialogue, and add this to the corner of the film.

2x "uncool" characters

The two uncool characters (gender unimportant) are best mates and bump into the cool pair who go to a different school and are persuaded to play truant. The uncool pair look up to this pair and are keen to be like them. Midway through the film the cool pair meet Hoody Styles, the friend of the uncool pair, and they are completely in awe of him and go to great lengths to emulate him. Thus, the tables have turned and they are no longer the lead characters, the uncool ones now are.

Anyone, aged 18 to 18

Hoody Styles

Hoody Styles is the super cool best mate of the uncool pair of friends who is introduced midway through the film. At 18, he is slightly older than the other 4 and they all look up to him, and is the reason the (previously) cool pair are no longer the trendsetters and lead characters. Wearing dark shades and a hoody over his school uniform, he remains a man of mystery throughout.

Males, aged 18 to 18
