Los Angeles, CA, August 23, 2016 – Feature film distributor World Wide Motion Pictures Corporation (formerly OTCBB: WWMO) is pleased to announce that it has added to its growing slate of prominent organizations by partnering with, The Anti Bullying Movement in Louisiana on a global educational and media outreach program. This partnership is tied to the forthcoming release of World Wide’s upcoming feature film, Time for a Champion, which depicts the impact of bullying on a Latina high school student.
“We’re pleased to collaborate with the Anti-Bullying Movement to help end bullying via our new movie “Time for a Champion,” stated Paul D. Hancock President/CEO of World Wide.“We realize that bullying is a serious sociological issue that often has traumatic effects on its victims. As a result, we’re proud to be working with the Anti-Bullying Movement in order to bring about more awareness to this nationwide epidemic,” Hancock further commented.
“This is a unique film because it was produced by a school district, which has seen first-hand how bullying can transform the educational environment into a painful experience for those students that are its targets and victims,” commented Nicholas Welch, founder of The Anti Bullying Movement.
“Time For A Champion” was produced by PSJA Southwest Film Society, a production company headquartered at PSJA Southwest Early College High School in the Pharr-San Juan-Alamo Independent School District (PSJA ISD) in South Texas. The inspirational sports story portrays the efforts of a homeless Latina girl to overcome a background of neglect and poverty. Enrolled in high school by her new adoptive parents, she must then confront bullying both in the classroom and on the athletic field. The screenplay was written by Barry Glasser, who is a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. Together, he and former Univision executive, Sarvelio Carreon, produced and directed the film, which was staffed by more than 80 PSJA ISD students and faculty.
“We’ll be collaborating with Mr. Welch and his associates to mount an aggressive program of screenings and media appearances,” Hancock noted. “Our goal is to provoke thoughtful, comprehensive discussions amongst families, educators, and religious and civic leaders in a concerted effort to prevent bullying.”
The Anti Bullying Movement’s mission is to help stop bullying and establish an environment that actively distributes information and provides real strategies to overcome it, thereby creating a feeling of unity within the communities that it serves.
