I’m Not Mandy – Short Script Review (Available for Production) - posted by wonkavite

I’m Not Mandy

Two teenage sisters realize that being popular… rocks!

Teen coming-of-age stories will never get old. No matter the decade into which you’re born, the experience is universal. Popularity. Unpopularity. Coming to grips with who you are… no matter what your peers may think. Some classics have come out of this fount of angst: The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink. Buffy. The Twilight Series (well, kinda.)

And there’s I’m Not Mandy. Teen Sandy – our protag – isn’t a model of awesomeness. Chubby and plain. Glasses and acne. She’s got nerd written all over her. Which is a real embarrassment to her sister, Mandy – whose perfect face makes her the coolest girl at school. When the script opens, it’s Sandy’s first day of high school. Mandy makes it clear that her sister should keep her distance, and not breathe a word about their blood bond.

Not a good way to start the day. Things quickly get worse when Sandy bumps into Adam Jones… the boy that Mandy’s been crushing on. Glasses get broken. Curses fly. Next thing you know, it’s all out war… With peace nowhere in sight.

How will it end? With blood – or redemption? Open the script… and find out.

About the writer: Born and raised in England, Sally Meyer has had 6 features filmed,  produced and released to television and dvd.  (And 8 shorts as well!)  Her feature The Elving Project is slated to begin filming January 2016, to be released next Christmas. Her IMDB Credits are available here: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2946574/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1.  And feel free to contact Sally directly at sallymeyer0 “AT” gmail!

Page Count: 5

Budget: Relatively low. Settings include a house, and a school. You’ll need a decent number of extras, and one actress who’s good at action/martial arts. (Hard to explain – better that you read the script!) 🙂

Loved this story!
Went an unexpected direction and what fun. Not surprised, cause I took a look at the impressive list of IMDb credits.
Can’t wait to watch this one… 🙂

Loved reading this, written so well and was funny at times.
Would love to make this a short film after I’ve finished with my other two Short films that are in Pre Production.
The ending had a good twist, can I ask what made you come up with such a cool/new idea ?
I would like to read your other work, and would also love to see someone create this into something amazing.
I can see this being a very cool project.
