This one is going straight to my video team. Thanks, Brian.

Related Note: My kids tried their hand at a Stop Bullying campaign last year. Posters went up around the school and this video on the Web. Bullying, cyber or otherwise, needs to be brought to the attention of more students. Kids can be so cruel without realizing the damage they might be causing. Keep fighting the good fight!

The resources are great in your handout. The links with examples of good and bad video clips are a big help. The planning guides, along with the coding for the types of shots, is a big help for those of us who are not quite as skilled in the filming techniques. Thanks for sharing.
