It’s being shot on the Canon C500 and we will be using a range of other professional quality equipment, this film will be the highlight of your showreel in stunning quality.

Film Synopsis
This modern day coming-of-age film shows the story of how Bertie met Jane. The film kicks off with protagonist, Bertie being chased by a gang of youths through the streets and gardens of the council estate, which is an unknown territory for Bertie as he’s being brought up in a different part of the city. Unknowingly to Bertie, Jane, the street-wise, hood-rat of the estate has been watching from her kitchen window. Looking down from her high-rise flat, she recognizes him from school and decides to intervene. She leaves her flat and comes down to find Bertie pinned against the wall, she makes her presence just in time before Bertie is mugged.
How will Bertie repay Jane? Well Jane has something in mind and decides to exploit Berties oblivious nature.

The shopkeeper is an Indian male, who owns the off licence on the council estate. This is a crucial character during this film and will have a strong role. He catches the two protagonists after they have robbed his shop, with an explosive reaction he grabs Bertie and pulls him back to the shop.
