What experiences have you had with bullying?
(9/7/07) When I was in second-third grade there was a bit of a class bully who used to bully everybody. Everybody in my class had something done to them. However, nobody said anything because they were afraid of what would happen. He did not pick on me too much he but every time did not pick me on he left a good mark or bruise. Eventually my teacher saw him beating one kid in my class and he stepped in. He got in trouble a lot after that and started to act nicer so it kind of worked out.
How do you feel about bullying?
I think that bullying is wrong. It happens excessively often and is never good. Almost every person you will ever meet will say that they have had some kind of knowledge of bullying either by experience or through seeing it happen to somebody else. To me that just seems to be way to much and I hope this film can help with that.
What have you learned about bullying from this project?
I have learned how many people have had it happen to them. I found out that it is way more common than I thought. I think I found out how differently it can happen too. I have also seen how it can affect somebody.
Film Project Experience
What do you think of this project?
(9/7/07) I think that this is a great project. I really think that this can help tone down how much bullying goes on in school. In addition, it will help let people know how the kids being bullied feel and the ways that they try to hide it. I hope that this can have an actual affect on anybody that was bullying somebody and realize what he or she are doing and how it is hurting the person being bullied even if they only thought it was a joke.
How has the project been so far?
This project has been very exciting for the whole period that we have been involved. The director (Mr. Faull) has done a great job of keeping everything that we have been doing exciting so that we do not lose focus. He has also been explaining everything very well and keeping this project fun for us.
What are your hopes and expectations for the coming weeks?
I hope that the project will go as smoothly as they have been during our briefings for what we will be doing. I also hope that the project will be as useful for anyone that sees it at as it already has been for me just hearing stories from my piers about experiences they have had and what they have done to get over them. I have learned a lot about how bullying can effect everyone even the person doing it.
