YouTube sensations and stars of hit E4 show Youngers, Mandem have collaborated with ScreenThing to inspire young people to recognise the value of original film and encourage them to access film and TV content via legitimate channels, rather than through piracy.

Passionate about the power of film – particularly its ability to connect communities through humour – and the UK creative industry they are a part of, Mandem have produced a special episode which aims to highlight the large amounts of effort, skill, and teamwork required to produce original film.

The episode showcases their own comical efforts to make a film – underestimating the hard work that goes into it and ending up in a mess. By working with ScreenThing The Mandem are aiming to inspire audiences to value original film and choose to watch film and TV via legitimate sources.

Brit School graduates Jovian Wade, Percelle Ascott and Dee Kartier who star in the show as Failia, Baker and Tinie first produced Mandem on the Wall in 2011, a comedy series about their daily adventures on a wall in their estate. Their YouTube success has led to the trio starring in E4 comedy show, Youngers, with the second series currently in filming.

They became a social media success with 10,000 followers on Twitter, 40,000 subscribers on YouTube and 13,000 fans on Facebook, and recently presented the MOBO awards.
