STAND UP!: Weston nine-year-old debuts video about bullying

Actor Joe Pantoliano spoke at the premiere of Alexander Boston’s anti-bullying video STAND UP!

Actor Joe Pantoliano spoke at the premiere of Alexander Boston’s anti-bullying video STAND UP!

In an effort to encourage children to get the courage to stand up to bullies, nine-year-old Alexander Boston of Weston made a film about his own bullying experiences.

The four-minute film, called STAND UP! was produced by Raw Digital, a production company based in Weston and New York City, and had its premiere on May 19 at the Cobb’s Mill Inn.

Alexander wrote, directed and starred in the short film, which  will now be shown in second grade classrooms in the Weston school district.

A victim himself of bullying, Alexander wanted his experience to help other kids get the courage to stand up to bullies and to teach potential bullies to make better choices.

The short movie was filmed primarily at Weston High School in June 2012. Young actors in the film are students from Weston or Stamford’s Rogers International School.

“I feel honored my film will educate other kids about bullying,” Alexander said.

Discussing the making of the video, producer Christine Fulton, who is also Alexander’s mother, said teaching through the arts has proven to be very effective, especially for the kids involved with the production of STAND UP! “This community production effort empowered kids with some creative ownership of an issue that is very real to them,” she said.

To further spread the message about bullying, Ms. Fulton said Raw Digital has approached The Story Pirates, a bi-coastal children’s theater company, to create an anti-bullying program. The production company has set up a fund to bring The Story Pirates program to the film’s associated schools next year.

At the video’s premiere, actor Joe Pantoliano, and Michelle Albright, Weston Youth Services director, spoke about the problems with bullying. Members of The Story Pirates performed a skit, and music was provided by Locker Jam, a Weston Middle School rock band, featuring Billy Stark, Kiran Edwards, Andrew Harwood, and Max Schlossber.
