(2016) (United States)
Screening Saturday 4/22
This video came about as my production company, New Style Independent Pictures, was working on a series of AntiBullying PSA entitled ‘I Am Not A Bully’ to raise Public Awareness on the issue. As we were working on the PSAs, some of the kids came up to us and told us that they wanted to share their stories on camera. We were completely surprised. They poured their hearts out on camera which made us work that much harder to make sure we got their stories out there.
The main emphasis of the project is to promote awareness on the issue of bullying which is a big problem in today’s society.
