For several years now, would be filmmakers have taken to posting short films on various sites (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.) to get their ideas out there.
Director Jeff Chan has produced a 10-minute short starring Robbie Amell, called Code 8, as proof of concept for a movie (which would also star Stephen Amell) he hopes to shoot later this year. It’s about a young man with powers who has a run in with a militarized police force after committing a petty crime.
CBS Films’ The DUFF is the story of that third wheel friend who’s a bit less hot and a bit more approachable than the rest of his/her group. In this case the DUFF is, Bianca (Mae Whitman), without whom, Bianca, Jess and Casey wouldn’t be Bianca, Jess and Casey.
Bianca is not the most popular girl in her class, but she has two really good friends and if she can’t bring herself to say more than three words in a row to her crush, well, she’s still got her friends. That is, until her neighbor, high school football star Wesley, informs her that she’s their DUFF – Designated Ugly Fat Friend.
