  • 1. Story behind the narrative: The short film may be about the relationship between a young, black boy (Kofi) and a mixed female (Leona) as he tries to get her number. However, the young boy fails to get the young girl's attention as she repeatedly claims how she already has a boyfriend but little does Kofi know that Leona's 'boyfriend' is Kofi's best friend.

However, different to my narrative idea of my short film the humour behind Adot's comedy extract is his African accent which managed to appeal to thousands of viewers on YouTube!
