A couple of our amazingly talented faculty members are teaming up this summer to produce a short film in Columbia.
Steph Borklund in our Digital Film department came up with the idea of “I Am One,” a short that explores the complex and cruel world of bullying. The film aims to empower young people to stand up for bullying victims, knowing that one person can, indeed, make a difference.
Borklund is working with Kate Berneking Kogut from English/Creative Writing, who has written, produced and directed a couple of her own short films.
What makes “I Am One” particularly exciting is that the creators are offering to show the film at regional schools in hopes of spreading the word that we can all be the “one” to challenge bullies.
Anyway, take a minute to check out her campaign here and find out how you can help be “one,” too.
