I am working on a mockumentary which will take place in a school environment. I will also be creating a promotional poster for the show. It will focus on a supply teacher called Mark Spencer who is starting his new role at Heworth Grange Comprehensive School in Gateshead in the North-East of England. He soon finds out how difficult keeping the pupils in order at this school can be. The primary target demographic will be between the ages of 13-24, who are in school or have recently left school. Because Mr. Spencer is just starting out in teaching, I want at least a relatively young actor to portray the role in order to appeal more to the target audience. The pupils will be played by teens because of the secondary school setting. I have taken inspiration mainly from popular UK mockumentary The Office. This show also focuses on a single character with many other supporting characters interacting with him in the workplace.
