Cool Kind Kid(R) Joins Forces with World Wide Motion Pictures Corporation to Help Combat Bullying
“We’re happy to announce that Cool Kind Kid® has chosen the feature film ‘Time for a Champion’ to spearhead their new campaign to raise awareness of the pernicious effects of bullying,” stated Paul D. Hancock, President and CEO of World Wide.
“This is a unique film because it was produced by a school district which is known for its progressive educational programs to prevent bullying and promote respect for all students,” commented Barbara Gilmour, founder of Cool Kind Kid®.
“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 in the classroom and on the athletic field. The screenplay was written by Barry Glasser, 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 Barbara Gilmour and her associates to mount an aggressive program of screenings and media appearances designed to provoke thoughtful, comprehensive discussions amongst families, educators, and religious and civic leaders in a concerted effort to prevent bullying, one follower at a time,” Hancock noted.
