What classification would your film be and why?

We think our film will be rated a '12' by the British Board of Film Classification. There are a few justification points behind this decision.

1. The '12' Certificate is awarded if it meets the following criteria:

Discriminatory language or behaviour must not be endorsed by the work as a whole. Aggressive discriminatory language or behaviour is unlikely to be acceptable unless clearly condemned. 
In Our film there is unlikely going to be any 'Discriminatory' language or behaviour, although we are looking at three different classes of people - they are not going to be looked at in a 'bad' way or in a way that would offend people who are in a similar class.


Any misuse of drugs must be infrequent and should not be glamorised or give instructional detail

There is going to be no drug used in our film.


Moderate physical and psychological threat may be permitted, provided disturbing sequences are not frequent or sustained.
There may be some horror used in our film, but it will not be frequent or sustained.

Imitable behaviour

Dangerous behaviour (for example, hanging, suicide and self-harming) should not dwell on detail which could be copied, or appear pain or harm free.  Easily accessible weapons should not be glamorised.
In our movie there will not be any suicide or self harm. And any 'powers' used in the movie as weapons - will be prominently fantasy.


Moderate language is allowed. The use of strong language (for example, ‘fuck’) must be infrequent.
There will be moderate language in our film, however no strong language will not be used.

Nudity,Sex &Theme

Mature themes are acceptable
Nudity, sex and theme will rarely if not at all, be used in our film. Mature themes will likely be used, but nothing too extreme.


Moderate violence is allowed but should not dwell on detail. There should be no emphasis on injuries or blood, but occasional gory moments may be permitted if justified by the context. Sexual violence may only be implied or briefly and discreetly indicated, and must have a strong contextual justification.
Any violence in our film will not be to gory or dwell on detail, there may be fights with their 'powers' but this will all be 'fantasy' and will not be too realistic to be to strong.
2. Many other films from the same 'superhero' genre generally have the same BBFC rating.

For example:

Iron Man Films: 12
X-Men Trilogy: 12
Hulk: 12
Batman Films: 12
Spider man 2&3: 12

If we are using similar codes and conventions in our movie, the likelihood that our movie will be rated a simmilar age rating is very likely.

Distribution Company

What film company would distribute your film?


Job Roles

Below arew the production roles that we will take on during the production filming of Elements.

Job Roles:
- Pete Wall - Director. I will have responsability for making sure each of the shots are completed and that the whole opening fits together.

- Ashley Hough - Sound / Photography. Ash will be responsible for making sure that the sound will be good during each shot. Also for making sure that photos are taken for evidence.

- Joseph Marhsall - Camera. Joe will be in charge of the taking of each shot, lining up the camera in the correct position and for any camera movement in the shots.

Actors: Protaginists

We are soon to go into Production of our movie opening and have finally found
the actresses who will be playing the main protagonists in our project. The three
girls we have picked take Drama A-Level in our school and we have seen them
act, they seemed to be the perfect choice for the job.

Zoe Chapple as Flo

The character of Flo is the most mature out of the three characters and we needed
an actress who looked like a strong character and able to be a surrogate sought of
mother to the other two. We thought Zoe was the perfect choice due to her look
and off course her acting is very good. I like to relate Zoe's look to '
Invisibility Woman' in the "Fantastic 4" movies who is also a strong character
to the superhero group.

Effie Robinson as Autumn

Effie has a very powerful look to her in which we thought would fit perfectly with
the character of 'Autumn' as the character is a successful woman who earns a lot of money.
Effie was the perfect choice for Autumn due to her acting and also, we want the audience
to be able to understand the characters status (which is high). The character is written and
hopefully performed very stereotypical on rich people, for example the voice needs to be
posh and how she would hold bags of shopping or hold her mobile phone.

Jessica Young as Scarlett

The character of Scarlett is a unemployed young woman who is a bit of a rebel and still acts
like a teenager most of the time. Jessica was our main person to play Scarlett as she is a
strong actress and had the look to her we wanted. The character also is not a very
fashionable person so we wanted to make sure that even though this character was
unemployed and hardly has a living, she still had an interesting look to her.



Below is our script which has been adpapted from our orignal idea, to form our final storyline. The script follows the tree women, as they go to meet each other. The script has been written so that it leaves the story on a narrative enigma.
