Brave Dream Media, LLC, in association with the Oklahoma Film + Music Office (OF+MO), is pleased to announce that production is underway for the second round of the educational video series “Safe Spaces: Schools” in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The series is utilizing the Oklahoma Film Enhancement Rebate Program administered by OF+MO.
“Working closely with the Oklahoma Film and Music Office has provided us with the opportunity to work on a project that will have a lasting impact on communities all over the United States.” said Rob Fouch, Producer with Brave Dream Media, LLC. “Having their support and experience has been a testament to the State of Oklahoma’s commitment to creating great work, and should encourage all filmmakers to take a look at filming in Oklahoma.”
“Safe Spaces: Schools” is a series of short films that will be used to educate and train teachers across the country on how to react in the event of various emergencies. The video scripts and procedures that will be featured have been crafted by former FBI, Secret Service and ATF agents, utilizing the most advanced and accurate training techniques deemed most effective by law-enforcement agencies. Such events that will be covered in the series include school situations involving bullying, cyber security, earthquakes, chemical spills and more.
Filming the first part of the series at the end of 2018 was a major success for the production company which received positive feedback from administrators and teachers across this country. This response encouraged the creators to produce additional short films to educate and train teachers on topics that are becoming more common in our schools today.
“Our number one priority is training and equipping teachers to be able to have basic knowledge and quick responses to any situation that could be presented to them on a given day in the classroom.” said Brittany Santos, Coordinating Producer with Brave Dream Media, LLC. “Fortunately, the Oklahoma Film Rebate Program has allowed us to stay in our own community to produce this series that is going to not only make the schools in our community safer, but those around the nation.”
