Honor Bullying Prevention Month with SEVA TV
Bullying and friendship are deeply personal and important topics for SEVA producers. Let’s take a moment to let producers explain in their own words why they made their videos that are featured in this episode of SEVA TV.
“Be the One” – John Barrett Middle School
Being different is a beautiful thing but, it can also be a tough process as well. Having friends step up and “Be the One” to support who you are is key. Middle School students can be mean, and bullying does occur. We encourage every student to stand up and “Be the One” to put a stop to bullying.
“It Only Takes One” – John Barrett Middle School
The message of this video is to demonstrate the act of kindness. Yes, middle school students are bullied everyday but, what can we do as students to make it stop? Kindness and compassion is the answer. All it takes is one person to demonstrate an act of kindness to change a students day, week, or life. The act of kindness is also contagious which can also lead to forgiveness.
“Pay It Forward” – Main Avenue School
It’s easy to show kindness to other kids on the playground.
“The Power of Words” – Winston Churchill Middle School
Our video explores the impact of words on us humans and by asking several people, we get to see the real effects of both negative and positive remarks. It also covers how we as a society can improve by choosing to use our words for good. We believe that we see in others what we do ourselves so the impact we put out to our audiences is essential for positive change
“Wander” – Cosumnes Oaks High School
Nora starts out the story very isolated from her peers. She avoids them at all costs to be with her magic. On the inside, Nora is scared of being different. She worried about opening up to others. By the end of the story, she realizes the people trying to reach out to her have always been like her. My film is about the importance and willingness to give others a chance. Friendship can be found in unexpected places.
“Your Story Matters” – Cordova High School
I wish to teach and portray the message that everyone has their own story, and you should be careful to judge. The motto of the entire video was, “Everyone has a story. Your story matters.”
