Dear Best Friend

The intent of our film is to remind people that we should be aware of suicide along with the feelings of others. We hope our film is able to convey a lack of awareness about how other people may be feeling. Some people may be feeling alone and show signs of depression but others may see it as miss behaving.

Find the Words

This short is a brief reflection of my own experience in which my best friend found the words. I aimed to provide the three basic action steps someone could remember in a situation where they are concerned about someone they know. Although I wish I could have gotten more creative with my scenes, I did my best with the time allotment of 30 seconds.
