David Firth is a young and talented English animator (we will revlog one of his animations soon) but besides that he is a shrewd filmmaker who came up in 2005 with a character called Devvo. As Firth writes:

“Devvo is Darren Devonshire, a “chav” from the Doncaster/Hull area. Devvo lets me follow him around and film his life in exchange for cigarettes, alcohol and small change. The … films are documentaries about the “chav” scene/problem in Northern England.”

The Chav problem? Chavs, aka Hoodies, Neds, Townies, Kevs, Charvers, Chorer, Steeks, Spides, Bazzas, Yarcos, Ratboys, Skangers, Scutters, Janners, Stigs, Scallies, Kappa Slappers or Hood Rats are young British lower-class kids who cultivate a low life subculture… “fixated on fashions derived from American Hip-Hop (African-American) and Guido (Italian-American) fashions and stereotypes such as gold jewellery and designer clothing combined with elements of working class British street fashion. Chavs are generally considered to have no respect for society, and to be ignorant or unintelligent.” (Wikipedia)

We kinda dig these mockers. Devvo is recently becoming a pop star as well; check out his latest hit: DONNY SOLIDER!
