Director Bill Cornelius speaks about the film: "The inspiration came from my own personal experiences with bullying when I was in middle school. Like many, those experiences had a lasting impact on my life,"he mentions. "Since then, I’ve wanted to leverage my work in the film industry to help those dealing with the same issues that I once dealt with.”..Surprisingly, although bullying is a huge problem in many schools, the producers found that institutions were reluctant to participate in the production..."Bullying seems to be a very taboo subject for many American schools and, unfortunately, they feel the best course of action is to sweep the issue under the rug with hopes that it goes away,"Cornelius states. "We found that the schools that were very open and receptive to us all had some form of anti-bullying program in place, which I think is very telling.”
