Based on the efforts of Dan Savage’s “IT GETS BETTER” viral anti-bullying campaign, the Calgary Police Service, Fairy Tales and EMMEDIA have teamed up to launch a new program in which youth will be provided with the tools to create their own anti-homophobia public service announcements.
The program will begin with a series of workshops hosted by EMMEDIA Gallery & Production Society, where youth will be taught about the practicalities of filmmaking such as editing, video production and how to make an effective PSA. After acquiring the “how-to” knowledge they will then have access to the equipment at EMMEDIA to create their PSAs, which can be no longer than one minute.
Open to high school students and college/uni students up to age 24. All details and applications are on the Fairy Tales website.
