Cyberbully

Our target audience is for anyone whom feels attacked by cyber bullies or whom is a bully themselves. We hope that our short film gives awareness and the effects of cyber bullying.

Plot

  • Message from the bully, calling the victim horrible names and using violent threats.
  • Victim goes to block and report the cyberbully.
  • Then threatens to make the victims life a living nightmare and to watch their back.
  • The next day the victim doesn’t turn up at school.
  • The teacher calls home and questions where the boy is.
  • The parents run upstairs to his bedroom.
  • To see the computer screen with multiple abusive messages continuing to pop up.
  • The parent pulls the plug from the computer/turning it off.

Story Board

The majority of our shots will be close ups to capture the emotions.

Emotional music will continue to play through out the film as well as sound effects of message alerts coming through.

Having the clip in black and white I think will also be effective as it shows the audience how dull and dark the world is within cyber bullying.
