Choose Life or Choose Meth Can Help End The Epidemic in Your Community     [top]

Described as “the best educational video ever produced on the meth problem,” this five-time national award-winning documentary employs the same strategy that California used to reduce tobacco use by 27% under Prop 99. It contrasts over four-dozen positive health education messages against the harm that methamphetamine causes. Many people who try meth feel they can work a double shift, stay up studying or party all night. In reality meth is a poison that is also extremely addicting. It typically destroys the personality and vital organs including the brain, heart, liver and skin, among others. Users often become addicts within a week and start down a long, tragic road that is fraught with crime, mental illness, broken families, job loss, STD’s and horrific physical suffering. We have many choices to make in life. By the end of this movie viewers know why they can “Choose Life…or Choose Meth."

The Choice is Yours: Breaking The Cycle of Teen Dating Violence     [top]

This riveting educational documentary DVD helps viewers see how they can unwittingly be transformed from “victim of abuse” into “abuser.” Teen dating violence is an essential link that is both cause and effect for deeper cycles of domestic violence. Many young women mistakenly believe that getting the “bad boy” to love them makes them more special than all of the other girls. When this fails, desperate victims often fight back out of a sense of survival—if they survive. Not surprisingly, young women and young men are often too embarrassed to report the fact that they are being abused. Tragically, when children see the violence between Mom & Dad, this often sets the stage for a “next generation” of abuser and abused. The story is hosted by a veteran team leader of a district attorney’s family crimes division and authenticated by current and former inmates. All provide introspection and a candid, and sometimes disturbing look at harm that runs much deeper than visible physical scars. The video offers several ways to successfully break the cycle of domestic violence by recognizing the behavior for where it leads, ending the relationships, having an escape plan and changing the predictable outcomes.

Choose a Goal

Choosing A Goal     [top]

“You can’t be committed to something unless you know what it is, but that means choosing a goal!” A goal is the single most important key that we can possess to being successful. But who thinks about choosing goals and what stops us from setting them? What are the most important goals to choose and why are goals important to us? This fun, thought provoking video teaches middle and high school students the value of choosing and pursuing goals. It also emphasizes the importance of staying in school and the significance of being committed to something you really want to accomplish for its own sake. The story integrates concepts like putting specialized knowledge to work, budgeting, the idea that learning is a lifelong journey-and that we never arrive, and that true happiness comes from doing, being, accomplishing,…really standing up for something and being real. It also introduces the concept that college can be fun and is accessible to everyone. But the most important lesson about having goals is that: Today’s goal becomes tomorrow’s reality.

You Can’t Get a 2nd Chance to Make a First Impression     [top]

Nobody’s called me back… I think it’s this recession! Set against the backdrop of the fictitious “JR THOMPSON COMPANY,” the organization needs to do some hiring and this outrageously humorous video gives a glimpse into the inner workings of a human resource manager’s mind. From screening job applications, to personal appearance, the HR manager’s nightmare turns into a series of valuable lessons for students who will someday be applying for work. Lessons include: Confirm the name, time and place for an appointment, find out about the company, don’t have sticky hands, make sure you’re neat and clean, don’t wear offensive clothing or saggy pants, avoid excessively tight, suggestive clothing and heavy makeup, don’t smoke or chew gum during an interview, and never bring a cell phone, pager, friend or relative into an interview, among many other valuable lessons. You should know your potential employer and never assume that how you look doesn’t make a difference!

Careers Have No Gender, Success Has No Limits  
   [top]

“Careers Have No Gender, Success Has No Limits” is a fun and interesting docudrama produced to empower students to remove barriers such as myths and stereotypes about gender when looking for a career. Sometimes real life challenges such as discrimination and harassment, extreme weather conditions, isolation, non-support of family and friends, and hazardous conditions are present and these challenges do not mean that people shouldn’t pursue the careers they want. This video helps viewers realize that women and men do not differ in their abilities to learn science, mathematics and mechanics. Furthermore equipment generally used for heavy lifting can be operated with equal efficacy by either sex. It also teaches while men are generally assumed to be stronger than women, with training most women can develop the upper body strength for most non-traditional jobs. In sum, choosing a career should have little or nothing to do with someone’s gender and everything to do with someone’s passion! This video features several real life examples of community college career pathways that lead to industries in which either gender can be equally successful. A Test & Review is embedded as a Bonus Feature in the DVD and a complimentary teacher’s guide is available here.

Competition and downsizing sometimes forces employers to cross-train employees who are really committed to the company and lay-off those who are not.

Love You To Death

Love You To Death      [top]

In one of the most powerfully written documentaries ever produced on the subject of teen dating violence, this video offers “life skills coaching,” wisdom, introspection, and solid advice on how to have positive relationships, while avoiding abusive ones. The positive advice is contrasted against the touching biographies of three homicide victims who were murdered by their boyfriends. The video offers substantial curriculum for both genders on how to spot the warning signs of emotional and physical abuse, ways to avoid abusive behavior in relationships, and a chapter on “How A Girl Can Protect Herself From Abusers.” Dozens of survival tips are derived from Jill Murray, expert on domestic and teen dating violence. Carrie Madsen brilliantly delivers in the role of “life coach” and the presentation is co-hosted by Suzanne Schultz, a veteran family crimes team leader with a district attorney’s office. The video concludes with several creative ways to successfully break the cycle of teen dating violence by devising an escape plan, safely ending an abusive relationship, and ultimately creating the kind of bonds in which you can “share the best you have to offer, not the worst.”

Calling Home

Calling Home: A Collaboration to Protect The Elderly (Director’s Cut, 2013)      [top]

Hosted by Rachel Songer, the documentary presents a comprehensive treatment by experts in which the audience learns how to recognize, prevent, and respond to suspected elder abuse. The “care continuum,” nutrition, hydration, exercise, family values, identity theft, fraud, the importance of staying connected and planning for the inevitability of aging are examined in detail.  The drama is woven throughout the documentary and stars Elinor Donahue  (Father Knows Best, Andy Griffith & Pretty Woman) and Gro Bondevik (American Blues Theater). It offers the touching perspectives of a mother and her adult daughter who’ve been estranged, but must now reconcile their relationship within the context of the mother’s past suffering at the hands of her own son. In this memorable production, the audience gets a poignant look and feel for the dynamics and devastation of elder abuse.  Our goal is prevention and a measurable reduction in the frequency of occurrence and the attendant human suffering. Re-mastered in 2013, the original won Best Documentary and Best Film Produced in San Joaquin County at the Delta Film Festival, 2004. Complimented with a teacher’s guide.
