Explosive video with a poignant anti-bullying message
[dropcap]I[/dropcap]f you’ve ever been bullied, picked on, beat up or taunted, this is the video for you. Kung Fury and GProductions give a voice to those who have been battered for being different on “Take a Punch”, a video with a stern warning to bullies everywhere. Here’s my $.02…
The Good- This video is set in a local school and approaches bullying from a variety of angles. There’s the girl who is harassed by her classmates for being overweight while it is apparent that she is suffering from an eating disorder. Another young lady is bullying herself; her internal demons are constantly haunting her. There’s a pair of gentlemen who are accosted by student athletes for being homosexual. The images are powerful, and clearly send the message that bullying can have adverse consequences.
The Bad- There’s nothing bad per se about the video. Though the quality could have been better, the video is concise and easy to relate to.
Overall- There’s a valuable lesson to be learned between the all of the transitions and editing; bullying is not only wrong, but it could be fatal. This poignant video is a “must see” and not just once. View it with your friends, kids and those who may be bullying or being bullied. It may just change their life. That’s my $.02.
