"Bullied" a true story based on a young boy growing up in New York City in a time when being different wasn’t accepted nor respected.   

 

The short shows how the Bully, a leader of his handpicked group of followers who follow him and Bully others just not to be… “Bullied.”    

 

His prey on the weak is victimized repeatedly to negative acts on the part of one or more other children. The Bullies negative action intentionally inflicts pain through words or physical action bring discomfort upon another and in doing so brings comfort to the Bully.
  

“In order for me to write “Bullied,” I had to relive one of the many moments I’ve been through in my life. During the filming process I had to see it from the outside looking in and as I watched it unfold yet again it gave me a true understanding about life, my life and why the story needed to be told.”  

  

“Where I am today is because I was able to find the strength from within…some are not that strong, and they see no hope in their life, they need guidance to see that life is good, and you can get through this…but no one can do it alone, and we can do it together. I want the “Bullied” project to be a learning platform for Parents, Teachers, Youth and Anyone who is being “Bullied” to understand, you are not alone, reach out for help and let someone know what is happening. Being “Bullied” is happening to Young and Old and comes in many different forms. If you are being “Bullied” or see someone being “Bullied” …stand up and say something “Starting Today” …because you matter, and you are loved.”

Bullying is the use of force, threat, or coercion to abuseintimidate, or aggressively dominate others. It is often repeated and habitual. One essential prerequisite is the perception, by the bully or by others, of an imbalance of social or physical power. Behaviors used to assert such domination can include verbal harassment or threat, physical assault or coercion, and such acts may be directed repeatedly towards particular targets.

Justifications and rationalizations for such behavior sometimes include differences of… Sexuality, Gender, Race, Religion, Class, AppearanceBehavior, Body Language, Personality
ReputationLineage, Strength, Size or Ability.

Remember…
