Bully Project (Titled: Somebody’s Hero)
You may have heard about this exciting project we are currently in process of producing and preparing to shoot. It is the life story of a young man who went from a high school athlete to a nationwide country artist. However, the process took it’s toll while this young man went through the unfortunate effect of school bullying and the trauma that came along with it.
Impact Productions is re-producing this story in an effort to support our public school systems and a nationwide campaign headed by this country music artist using this film on his nationwide tour. We’re excited to see this project have the opportunity to help thousands of kids and provide awareness of a common and very unfortunate issue kids and teens are facing today.
Below you will find information on our process, positions needed for the production, and opportunities for being ‘extras’. We’d love for you to read through and see if you’d be interested in taking on a role, and playing a part of bringing change to a nationwide issue our world is facing today.
We have already begun the process of writing, interviewing, and working with the artist and his management. The script is in review and re-writes are taking place.
We are doing location scouting at some public High Schools in this area that have open their doors to this project. We are very thankful for their full support.
We are preparing the technical crews for video, sound and lighting and getting them in place.
We will then build teams to assist those leaders in each division for hands on work for the shoot days.
Lead roles are being cast at this point and individuals have been contacted that meet specific needs for the film. However, we will need a lot of teenagers to be on set as ‘extra’s’ during our days of filming.
As we continue and see needs for other roles we will either contact and/or contact many individuals for an audition in order to get the right character traits needed for the role. Many of our students within Impact Academy will be discussed and desired for auditions.
