Teens use film to educate peers on bullying

| 07/08/2013

(CNS): A number of public service announcements produced by a group of local teens this week during a  summer film project will be used to educated their peers and raise awareness on the problems related to bullying in local schools next term. The camp was hosted by the Family Resource Centre and the students wrote, filmed and produced the PSAs with the help of a CITN reporter who instructed them on the basics and a private producer who share tips on filming and editing. The teens also promoted their work during appearances on CITN’s Parenting Plus show, and on Z99 and Radio Cayman.

This specialized camp helps teens to build empathy for those affected by social issues. As part of the WRC’s Stood-Up campaign, the Cyber Bullying film was screened earlier this year. The summer camp activities allowed teens to interact with the themes of that film.
