The Stop Bullying Now 2018 Campaign launched last night at Event Cinemas Coomera.
Gold Coast production company, Glass Media Group, has partnered with TAFE Queensland and four Gold Coast high schools to create another series of anti-bullying advertisements for 2018, highlighting the affects this epidemic has on Australian children and to inspire change.
The commercials have once again been conceptualised and co-produced by TAFE Queensland Diploma of Screen and Media students and feature scholars from Pimpama State Secondary College, Robina State High School, Coomera Anglican College and Varsity College who act out confronting thoughts and feelings children face each day.
The Stop Bullying Now red carpet launch and exclusive premier screening took place on Wednesday 21 November at the new Event Cinemas Coomera Westfield complex in the Vmax Cinema.
General Manager of TAFE Queensland Gold Coast, Karen Dickinson stated that TAFE Queensland is proud to be involved in this vitally important grassroots approach to stamp out bullying in our schools and in workplaces.
“Our partnership with Glass Media Group is now in its second year with the Stop Bullying Now campaign with our students having worked with them at recent sporting and cultural events hosted by the City.”
“TAFE Queensland Diploma of Screen and Media students have receive hands-on, jobready industry experience through this partnership with Glass Media Group. However, more than just creating a social awareness campaign, we are honoured to see the empathy and hearts of all the students involved. Knowing that they don’t want to see another child harmed in this socially unacceptable manner is comforting, to say the least, of our future filmmaker and story-tellers who will influence the next generation.”
“If we can harness society as a whole to change their behaviour to stop bullying, future generations will only be the winner,” said Karen Dickinson.
