The BBFC's Guidelines state that strong language like f*** etc, has to be uncommon at '12' or '12A' - puns on strong language is allowed. Moderate language like 'bitch' and 'twat' are allowed.
In our film the moderate language will probably be used, to refer to the other characters, or the groups will use them jokingly with each other.
For example - That tanorexic is such a bitch.
At '12' and '12A' moderate violence is allowed but it cannot be too detailed. They should be no gory moments.
There could be a fight between the chavs and emos.
Dangerous behaviour (for example hanging, suicide and self-harming) may be present in ‘12’ or ‘12A’ works but will not dwell on detail which could be copied or present those activities as pain or harm free. Weapons should not be glamorised in ‘12A’ and ‘12’ works. Discriminatory behaviour should not be endorsed by the film as a whole.
There may be infrequent sight of drugs misuse in a ‘12’ or a ‘12A’ but the portrayal should not be glamorised or provide instructional details.
Because of the social groups there may be self-harm/suicidal behavior present because bullying and stereotypical opinions will be used through out the film.
Chavs may carry knuckledusters but wouldn't put them to use.
There is a mention to drugs in the 'Scene kids' scenes but there will only be mentions not actual scenes.

Yasmin: I saw a picture on the internet that had the whole collaborated background with an envelope over the top; so i decided to create my own collaborate background but put a polaroid over the top. 'Sour Hearts' was a pun of sweetheart and it also sounds quite edgy and rememberable.
T: A production company creates ideas and motion pictures, tv programmes, and adverts etc - they may also find funding for the products they produce. Paramount have produced Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging & Mean girls.
Y: A distributor is someone reliable who would get the film out there and support it fully. Paramount Pictures would be the most reliable - they've been going for years and have already got films being produced for 2013.
T: The money could come from the National Lottery - Uk Film Council. They have funded St Trinian's and Kidulthood who have influenced us hugely.
Y: The production companies are written outside of the book. The three main actors are written on banners, name tags and masking tape. The rest of the main cast is on a 'Class 09' page. Costume design to Original Music is also written on tape to keep to scrapbook theme. Producer and Director written outside of the book. It all keeps to a scrapbook theme.
T: Our film influences are St Trinian's; Clueless; Angus, thongs & Perfect Snogging; Mean Girls; Skins; House bunny; and, Kidulthood.

she dresses fairly straight forwardly - just jeans and a top. She enjoys sleepovers with her friends, and shopping at the weekends with her pocket money. She shops in places like H&M and River Island, Jane Norman, New Look, and Topshop.
She enjoys films like Mean Girls, Angus Thongs and Perfect Snogging, House Bunny, St Trinians, Sex and the City, Mumma Mia, she enjoys watching them at the cinema and also buying them later on DVD and watching them with her friends, and jelly and icecream.

Looking back at your preliminary task (the continuity editing task), what do you feel you have learnt in the progression from it to full product?

The reason why the stills aren't long enough for people to read, is because there needs to be a voice over, explaining the groups.
We just needed the visuals of a scrapbook; we rushed our rough cut, to produce something on time.
Because the stills only take up half of the screen, we'll take a screen shot of the opening frame of the motion visuals, edit it into the other side of the screen and then cross dissolve them to get the transitions.
We have all of the titles, we just need to finish the project to put them on.
