Certification 15

We chose to have our film be 15 as it was the certification, which allowed us use to show the adult themes and the adult comedy that we wanted to involve in our film furthermore our main target audience is 15+ as they are the ones who can mainly associate with the issues challenged with in the film.
Discrimination The work as a whole must not endorse discriminatory language or behaviour.  Our film has no discrimination involved at all and we also have diverse cast mixing Arabic, Caucasian, Black and Mediterranean.  Our main Characters our Caucasian and African showing high level of equality and unity between races.  Also there is no racial insulting language or bigotry language used with in our film. Drugs Drug taking may be shown but the film as a whole must not promote or encourage drug misuse. The misuse of easily accessible and highly dangerous substances (for example, aerosols or solvents) is unlikely to be acceptable.  We will have a character smoking but he won’t be a main character and he will be promoted negatively so as not to entice people to start smoking or even discourage them from starting or encourage them to stop. The character that smokes is stereotypical for a druggy shaggy hair, baggy clothing and unshaved. Horror Strong threat and menace are permitted unless sadistic or sexualised.  There isn’t any horror involved in film the scene are mostly comedic and threating scene are then instantly calmed down with dash of comedy. Imitable behaviour Dangerous behaviour (for example, hanging, suicide and Self-harming) should not dwell on detail which could be Copied. Easily accessible weapons should not be glamorised.  No Imitable Behaviour is involved other than the attitude that Dan has towards Paige (Two of the main characters) when he treats as an object just to fulfil his sexual desires. This may allow some female characters to identify with the female protagonist as they are in or have been in a similar relationship. Language There may be frequent use of strong language (for example, ‘f***’). The strongest terms (for example, ‘c***’) may be acceptable if justified by the context. Aggressive or repeated use of the strongest language is unlikely to be acceptable.  There aren’t that many swear word other when necessary when there is a scene of aggression or shock then the character may swear but nothing severe the worst word stated is will be s*** as the curse words are not relevant to the narrative having more than that would be unnecessary. Nudity Nudity may be allowed in a sexual context but without strong detail. There are no constraints on nudity in a non-sexual or educational context.  There no scenes of nudity at all in our film. Sex

Sexual activity may be portrayed without strong detail. There may be strong verbal references to sexual behaviour, but the strongest references are unlikely to be acceptable unless justified by context. Works whose primary purpose is sexual arousal or stimulation are unlikely to be acceptable.  There are no sexual scenes In our film but sex is talked about and suggested with in the narrative, we didn’t want to promote the sort of behaviour that would cause others to be treat like paige so we tried to avoiding injecting any ideas into the audience. Theme No theme is prohibited, provided the treatment is appropriate for 15 year olds.  The theme is concentrated on identifiable characters and the issues in there school life , our main target audience is 15+ as they are the ones who mainly have to deal with the issues we challenged. Violence Violence may be strong but should not dwell on the infliction of pain or injury. The strongest gory images are unlikely to be acceptable. Strong sadistic or sexualised violence is also unlikely to be acceptable. There may be detailed verbal references to sexual violence but any portrayal of sexual violence must be discreet and Have a strong contextual justification.  There are very few scenes of violence in our film one those few scene is when Mitchell is bullying some kid and grabbing him and pushing him but none of it is permanently damaging or gory in any sense. This means even though there scene of violence it is still easy for a mass audience to watch.
