To help us with the planning of our production we have produced a treatment form. This document gives a small summary and synopsis of what our programme will be about and what it will include  It also covers every aspect of our production in relation to the roles and jobs which we each have assigned between us. Obviously these will all cross over slightly and we each want to have a go at all of the different roles so we gain more experience and learn from this production process for future projects. It's just a rough guide to who will mainly be in charge for each of the different components of our production. 

Programme Name: Still unsure of this at this moment in time

Genre: Comedy

Brief Synopsis: Our programme will be a comedy sketch show which would be uploaded to Youtube and other streaming websites (such as Vimeo) once a week. We are aiming for a cross between Armstrong and Miller and Balls of Steel. The programme will include a variety of  sketches and entertaining scenes from things such as; interviewing people, taking part in challenges and also playing pranks on the general public. The main basis for the programme is going to be three girls (me, Carys, and Shannen) who are all friends and together they create, produce, film and edit the programme to be streamed online on Youtube each week on our channel. Our channel can also included behind the scenes features, bloopers and what each of us have been up to during the week when we aren't filming the programme. We will also present parts of the programme and star in it at various points. In the programme we will include features such as; interviews with the general public in various famous, recognisable landmarks. In this we will ask them random and crazy questions which people will give comedic answers to and hopefully the audience will find them funny and be entertained. We will also include film and trailer spoofs, making fun of certain films and recreating them in a humorous way. Challenges will also take place throughout the programme. The presenters (Me, Carys and Shannen) will take part in these challenges to portray across to the audience the fact we are friends and have fun making the programme. These will be things such as; trying to eat 20 McNuggets in 2 minutes, eating doughnuts without licking our lips, how many Ferrero Rocher can we eat in a certain amount of time, and trying to eat some very sour sweets whilst keeping a normal face. Archetype characters would also be used from week to week if this programme was to be continued. This would bring some familiarity for the audience and would also help to bring them back to watch the new episodes each week. These characters would included people such as 'The Annoying Chav', and  'Lord Gaga' just to name a few. The archetypal features would also have their own titles, this will helo to introduce their character to the audience.
