Narrative – The story is about a teenage boy that is new the school, however he has a secret personality that no-ones knows about, he is very quiet and very private, and has no friends. People fear him, as he is a very built guy with a strong masculinity to him that even the toughest guys wouldn’t dare to approach him. But sooner or later he joins a group called “Street Terror”. This group knows nothing than to terrorise the streets of Essex. They break into shops, steal pensioners money, set cars alight, deal with drugs and most of all they have a thrill for violence! This is the worst group that Essex has ever come upon of. But justice has to be served and finally at the end justice is served nice and cold.

Opening Sequences – The opening sequence of this movie is when Tyrone is getting ready from school, you can hear his parents shouting at one another, and you see his facial expression, then he leaves for his new school with his parents not even knowing he has left. Then when he finally arrives at college you can se his anger and the way he is, he arrives to college late, and in tutorial when they are taking the register the teacher says Tyrone, and that’s when he walks in.

  1. Antoinette some good ideas. You need to add in abit more detail for the following area:
    1. Target audience- be more specific-what kind of lifestyle would they have? What other films may they have watched (similar genres to yours)?
    2. State how your research shows that your narrative follows the codes and convetnions of Gangster films. What are the codes and conventions? Use your own knowledge and films we have looked at in class to draw examples from.
    3. Key Directors and actors-rather than just stating them research and write about what tehy are known for, what is their style? What fameous films have they directed or starred in and what was unique about this film/performance?
