Sandy Hook Parents Turn To Hollywood For New PSA
As we approach the sixth anniversary of the Sandy Hook shooting, the parents of those children killed, along with the Sandy Hook Promise, have released a new video and this time, have turned to Hollywood for help.
Over the last few years, on the anniversary of the Sandy Hook shooting, the Sandy Hook Promise has been releasing a new public service announcement geared towards educating people on school shootings. Friday marks the sixth anniversary of the massacre that killed 20 children, and six adult staff members at the Sandy Hook Elementary School.
This year, Newtown has called on Hollywood, most notably Rupert Sanders, the director behind "Snow White and the Huntsman" and "Ghost in the Shell." He helped create the latest public service announcement called "Point of View". The video depicts a typical school day as seen through the eyes of a student, who as we watch the video, turns out to be the shooter.
The overall message of this year's video is that most people only notice the shooter once it's too late.
The video is the third in a series of videos put out each year at this time by Sandy Hook Promise. Over the last few years they have released "Evan" in 2016, and "Tomorrow's News" released last year. All three videos have a similar theme of how easy it is to miss the warning signs even though they are unfolding in full view.
