Welcome to the dog days of summer. Time to relax, recharge, and keep cool! Most of us at glow media have taken some time to relax and re-charge, but our tireless director, Justin Chiet has been working like a dog, putting the finishing touches on the new films - even providing an audio cameo in one!
At this time last year we were gearing up for a busy month of filming. While we fondly remember our time on set last summer, we are grateful to be entering the production homestretch from well air-conditioned offices and studios!
With the completion of these films and companion guides, glow media will continue its mission to educate youth, their families, and educators, in an effort to reduce stigma, correct misconceptions, and reinforce the reality that mental health affects everyone.
It’s hard to believe that we have been working on our new films for a full year. After the premiere in May and subsequent review period, we are excited to announce that our three new short films: This is Me, Do Supermodels Eat Popcorn, and Gotta Get It, along with their companion guides for Educators, Parents/Guardians, and Students are available ONLINE at glowmedia.org on AUGUST 1, 2017! That’s TODAY folks!
The companion guides have been reviewed by mental health experts and educators and will be available in both English and Spanish. The guides will be updated regularly. Your feedback is greatly appreciated.
We have had requests for our films in Spanish and with closed captioning for the hearing impaired. Through the Vimeo video distribution service, we are able to offer the films with closed captioning as well as with Spanish subtitles, both without cost. Other languages are available for a small fee.
August is planning time for educators. Contact your local schools today and encourage them to use glow media films in their curriculum. For a guide on how to talk to your child’s school or your local school, click here and find the "How-to-guide" below the Frequently Ask Questions section:
