1 - Charity Fundraiser (Male, White, 20-30 years)
Well groomed,slim and a perfectionist; he is a well-off middle-class man, raising money purely morally. He distances himself from 'lower-class scum'. Facing competition he breaks down his boundaries and extends his reach.
2 - Magazine Seller (Male, White, 35-55 years)
A colloquial and recognisable face in the area, playing off stereotypes of Big-Issue Sellers and homelessness. Grey haired, heavy stubbled; it is obvious his life is in terrible condition. On the job he's dull and lifeless; when competition is introduced he goes the extra mile to make the most money.
3 - Group of Teens (Male, Any, 16-21 years)
A troublesome archetypal group of 'hooded' characters with the pure purpose of causing chaos and spreading fear (approx. 4 members). One is the 'Leader' who initiates the aggressive actions towards Charity Fundraiser.
Magazine Seller struggles to raise money in a busy city centre, when Charity Fundraiser appears his day gets more difficult than usual.

How cool is this...
Edgar Wright - (director of Shaun of the Dead, Hott Fuzz, Spaced and Scott Pilgrim versus the World - currently working on the Spielberg Tintin film - for those who don't know - not there would be anyone on the YPFC site who wouldn't right?) has really generously decided to auction off the sign from the Somerfield's in Wells - where Hot Fuzz was shot, to raise money for Somerset Film and the Engine Room for the way it nurtures Somerset's emerging film-making talents.
This comes after another great bit of news last week when an original signed illustration by Nick Park was donated by Aardman Animations to raise funds for a young filmmaker to make it to a festival in Toronto to collect an award for 'Teeth the Musical' an incredibly entertaining animated educational video, made for and with people who have learning disabilities.
So a massive massive thank you to the generosity of a local filmmakers done good -
THANKS EDGAR WRIGHT & THANK YOU AARDMAN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
