WomEn in film & mEdia Psa ProjECt – a monstrous aCComPlishmEnt

i
     n December 2008, CCN applied for the Women In Film and
     Media PSA Project. Women In Film and Media of Pittsburgh’s
     stated purpose is to improve the status and portrayal of women
in film, video and other screen-based media. With emphasis on
education, they serve to provide access to opportunities in the
industry and work with non-profits dedicated to helping women and
children. Their PSA Program benefits local non-profit organizations
and assists women by mentoring them in a production atmosphere
to give a hands-on experience while being guided by professionals.

In March 2009, CCN was selected with two other area nonprofits to
present their organizations and missions to the PSA committee. Later
that month, CCN was selected as the PSA recipient. Scripts were
presented to CCN in December; in January 2010, a script was
determined, and by April, the scenes were filmed. After much
anticipation, CCN was able to present the PSA at our annual meeting
in November.

“When we sat down to look at scripts and concepts that would work
for our center, we wanted something different that would set CCN’s
PSA apart from others. We shared a monster concept with WIFM that
we had seen done in an international print campaign. We all agreed
on the uniqueness of this concept and felt it would capture the
attention of viewers young and old,” says Erin Varner, PSA
Committee Member.

Producer Lisa Smith describes the story as a woman watching a
horror movie on TV and as the camera pushes in, the viewer sees a
scene of a woman being chased by a man who turns out to be a
monster. As the story unfolds, the viewer realizes the woman is in
some sort of distress in her relationship and the monster is her
partner who walks through the door in the end. The gist of it is, she
doesn’t have to watch a horror movie – she lives one.”

“The concept behind the PSA is to help people understand that it
can happen to anyone and that it really is a nightmare type of
situation,” says Board President Lisa Wagner.

All of the volunteer crew members from WIFM said they were very
motivated and excited to donate their time to a cause that helps save
women’s lives.

Development Specialist, Stacy de las Alas comments, “The time and
effort donated by this team was incredible. It was amazing to me how
much time it took to capture a shot. The patience and teamwork of
the crew was outstanding. We are so impressed with the outcome!”

        id you know that over two million
        older Americans are victims of
        physical, psychological, or other
forms of abuse and neglect? According to a
2003 National Research Council Panel
assigned to Review Risk and Prevalence of
Elder Abuse and Neglect, between 1 and 2
million Americans age 65 or older have
been injured, exploited, or otherwise
mistreated by someone on whom they
depended for care or protection.

Every five seconds, an elderly person is
abused, with just five states accounting for
over 1/3 of all elder abuse cases in the U.S.
These states include: California, Florida,
New York, Texas and Pennsylvania.
