to UnMake a Bully 



Over the past seven years, we've worked with thousands of students throughout the country, producing hundreds of anti-bullying and character-developing PSAs based on the experiences of the students who participate. Students learn and implement every aspect of the filmmaking process, including directing, acting, lighting, sound, makeup and more.
