According to the stats a school shooting happens every thirteen days. In one long steadicam shot, this spot captures the sobering reality of school shootings, but does it in a way that is more suggestive than exploitive. While at the beginning the first person looks like they are asleep at their desk it is only at the end does the camera swing around to reveal the people in the classroom are bodies, Meanwhile their phones are ringing off the hook from frightened parents trying to reach them. Powerful stuff.

Production: Station Film Director: Andrew Wonder Cinematographer: Adam Newport-Berra
