About the project

"Bam! Poof! Crash! : Your Inner Super Hero Beats Anxiety" We will be making a short video clip depicting strategies that children and youth can use to try and help them through their anxiety. In our program, we work with many children and youth that suffer from anxiety - whether it is with friends, at school or generally out in public. We are hoping that this video will give our staff one more tool to use with their clients to help alleviate this anxiety.

This three-day project will involve two days of writing / filming / editing which are to take place on campus.  The third day will take place at Options Community Services Society in Surrey where the students will share the final videos with the staff.  Students will have the opportunity to help finalize scripts based on content provided by Options.  Creativity and fresh ideas are welcome!  Past groups created interview-style videos, top-ten videos and other formats to communicate course messaging.
