THE CHALLENGE: create a video that, in a “family friendly” way, raises awareness of the sexual exploitation of under-aged girls. Oh, and do it in just 30 seconds. “Yikes!”
StreetGRACE is an organization fighting against the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC) in the Atlanta Metro. They have a booth this Saturday, Sept 4, at the Celebrate Freedom Concert held by the FISH, Atlanta’s premiere Christian music radio station. They also get to show a 30-second commercial six times on the jumbotron for the 45,000+ attenders to see. However, since the FISH requires all content to be viewable by family members of all ages, StreetGRACE was in a quandary. CSEC as a topic is not exactly “Disney” material.
This is the video we came up with. Many thanks to those who donated their time and talent.
