The film took almost six months to complete. My classmates and I interviwed dating abuse victims including a former Mrs. Alabama. We also had help from an assistant district attorney, police officers, therapists, and a director of a women's violence shelter. Throughout the six months we were able to enlist the help of a local producer, who helped us in the editing process of our documentary. The week of prom we showed the film to 700 of our classmates. The video was very successful and gained local praise. Our video has been distributed to local highschools around the state of Alabama. Also several schools in New York, Arkansas, and Florida recieved a copy of the documentary. The film gained much praise by the Alabama Attorney General's office. My classmates and I were asked to attend a special presentation in Montgomery, where we recieved a recognition of achievement by Alabama Attorney General Troy King. The Alabama State Senate also recognized our group with a certificate of achievement. The video has played a strong role in educating teenagers about an issue that is overlooked.
