The first idea that I have for a PSA would be about smoking. I don't know everyone else, but I hate when family members have to stop for a moment to take a "Smoke Break", every heard of that. Well I heard that on average, daily smokers will have a "Smoke Break" at least 5 times a day. I also heard that you will lose 11 minutes, that's 55 minutes of your life being wasted for only 3 minutes. To aware the harmful effects of "smoke breaks", I want to make a PSA that will show either movie clips of characters saying "smoke break" or time for "smoke break". On the screen will be a the number -11 minutes. At the end, the I will have a VO that tells about the facts shown before. In the end, I think this may need a few adjustments but I think it could be a good idea.
My second idea would be about texting while walking. I got this idea when I decided to text and walk at Disneyland in a crowd, as a result I would always fall down almost like every 100 feet. From then on, I thought this would be a good PSA, talking about the bad effects of texting while walking. I did some research and I found that texting while walking is one of 5 main cause of pedestrian accidents. So it hit me that I would do the PSA about texting while walking and the effects it has on the road. My idea for this would be a guy/girl texting and walking on his phone to somewhere, in the meantime he/she would bump things like walls, trash cans, and even people. Then the last scene would be him/her would be hit by the car explaining the pedestrian accidents thing. This is personally my favorite idea because I have put some thought into it.
My last idea for a PSA would be about Anti-bullying. It's a common fact that bullying is very common these days. In my idea, I would more focus about cyberbullying. My PSA would be taken on the phone screen. The shot will be the bullying calling a person names. Then a text appears from an anonymous person that says, "You know, you shouldn't do that". Then the anonymous person will explain to the bully why cyberbullying is bad and that's the reason why we have suicides(not only the main cause), some statistics in there. But in the end the bully says to the victim sorry. This would be my backup, backup PSA idea.
Well that's pretty much it guys! Those are my 3 ideas for PSA's, they would be about smoking, texting while walking, and cyberbullying. I hope I get to pursue my ideas without a hitch next quarter. Well that's pretty much it, makes sure to come back next week to read the latest and greatest. Peace! ✌
