How To Be: Emo is an internet short created in 2004 by director Christian Bretz. Filmed in the style of a 1950's informational short, it features a teen named Billy (played by Trent Teigan) and his quest to become emo. Guided by a disembodied voice in the form of a narrator, Billy learns about emo culture, fashion, music, discrimination, and other important aspects of emo life. How To Be: Emo pokes fun at many different subcultures in addition to emo, including jocks, wiggers, and preps. One of the greatest additions to 2000's emo culture since emogame.

How To Be: Emo was perfectly good as a 21 minute black-and-white short. It does NOT need to be made into a full-length movie.
