Artists for Change aims to create a series of educational media to raise awareness on the commercial sexual exploitation of minors.
1. SUPPLY & DEMAND (Documentary)
The short documentary, SUPPLY & DEMAND, is a companion piece to our narrative feature film, LOST GIRLS: ANGIE’S STORY. The documentary will convey more facts on trafficking through interviews with experts working in the field. So far, our production team has interviewed experts such as Lieutenant Andre Dawson, (LAPD, who supervised the daily operations of the Los Angeles Metropolitan Human Trafficking Task Force and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Child Exploitation Task Force). As well as Kim Biddle, (founder and Executive Director of Saving Innocence) and Patrick Lambertz, (CEO of Man Against The Trafficking Of Others).
2. EDUCATIONAL SHORT FILMS AND PSA’S
We are currently developing a series of educational short films and PSA’s to illustrate through narrative short stories how traffickers recruit teenagers through the internet and alluring job offers.
These shorts and PSA’s will be made available online and given to other NGO’s, schools, and foster care institutions to support their efforts to prevent future trafficking. We will use our skills as filmmakers and storytellers to create engaging and impactful content.
Teenagers need to be able to understand when they or their friends are being targeted. We believe that education leads to prevention.
