Teen Commercials

This series of commercial length films made by Compassion and funded by the Suffolk Community Foundation, is intended to raise awareness & understanding about issues of power, control and coercion experienced by at least 40% of young people in teenage relationships.  www.compass-ion.org

The brief for the young people involved in the project was to create films, which would inform their peers to identify teenage relationship abuse and to present this in a way that their peers could directly relate to. The films have been entirely developed by a collaboration of over 40 young people alongside support from professionals in scriptwriting, directing, filmmaking and sound by members of The Offshoot Foundation.  www.offshoot-films.co.uk
