EXT. SCHOOL YARD, VAN NUYS HIGH SCHOOL, CALIFORNIA - DAY

The demeanor in the schoolyard is starting to change.

Students are wearing NAME TAGS.

Students from different cliques are greeting each other by their first name, talking to them.

BLACK GANG BANGER # 1
How’s that literature class? You do the reading?

HISPANIC GANG DUDE # 1
Yeah. I liked that Romeo guy. You know, it’s sort of like you and me and my sister.

BLACK GANG BANGER # 1
Yeah. I’m the Romeo.

HISPANIC GANG DUDE # 1
Are not!

Students come up to each other ...

CHEERLEADER # 1 - MANDY
Hello....

Some of them are getting a little Hawaiian spin on things.

HULA DANCE CLUBS start practicing in the school yard with music played from a BOOM BOX.

Students of all races and colors and the MEN join in too.

TO WRITE:

The prize list is becoming insane: cars, trips to other places in the world, computers, clothes, sunglasses, and on and on and on. The Students are becoming very aware of what's going on and they're starting to feel like they are under the microscope. Internet cameras have been put on the campus and these webcams are feeding live images of these Students through the Internet around the world.

At first the Students thought it was cool and to keep up their image of whatever it is they thought they had an image of. But after browsing the websites and the bulletin boards and the blogs, they realized that the world was watching to see if they would start behaving and being "good".

A lot of the Students started developing fan clubs and there was something in the press almost daily about the school.

The Students started dressing a lot nicer and started shedding their suits of armor.

The school demeanor started lightening up and then the camera cruises through the school and sees the graffiti disappearing and the school morphing into a more fun safe
and enjoyable place.

The Students started realizing that there were a lot of people in the school they never met that was just like them or super cool.

Friendships started blossoming and the name game was on.

The homecoming football game is coming up and Robert, Sr. sits down with the Principal and convinces her to do an Aloha Flow at halftime in the middle of the football field.

 

EXT. FOOTBALL FIELD, VAN NUYS, CALIFORNIA - DAY

STUDENTS from Van Nuys High show up with NAME TAGS on and with a cheerful friendly attitude, almost something out of Beaver and Cleaver in the '50's.

The FOOTBALL GAME starts and just like the other game the booing and jeering was at its regular level but the other school side seemed to have a higher level of negativity
than the Van Nuys side.

FOLLOW AS The TV NEWS CAMERAMAN wends his way through the STUDENTS.

STUDENT # 1
What’s that funny camera.

STUDENT # 2
He’s shooting 3-D for the Japanese TV News.

To create a slight difference in effect because of what has started with the Aloha Flow at the Van Nuys School.

At halftime ROBERT and the Principal take the center of the field and talk a little bit about what they're going to do about the halftime show.
