WILMINGTON, NC, November 06, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- More and more today we see young people beginning to take matters into their own hands in regards to school shootings, lockdowns, bullying, climate change and a host of other issues. They are asserting their power, demanding their rights and will certainly end up transforming the world. Greta Thunberg's climate change movement is but one example. There are many more.
Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein, Selfie filmmaker and Positive Psychologist, is a cutting-edge, visionary selfie filmmaker who has garnered over 80 awards and screenings. She recently created The Selfie Showcase, a new project emerging from The Selfie Project, that allows young people to voice their opinions on subjects that matter to young people. She is now accepting submissions from the public for the "Selfie Showcase" and is actively seeking change-makers and mental health professionals to appear on her monthly video podcast.
The Selfie Showcase allows kids, teens, and young adults ages 13 to 18 to candidly express their concerns, worries, observations and possible solutions by creating selfies or selfie films around important subjects, using a smart phone.
Selected participants may appear on the Selfie Project Channel, available on Youtube at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3uaOTcYF70z5CpBh11VoUQ. They will also appear in the Selfie Showcase on SelfieFilmmakers.com. They will receive a certificate of merit, and may be invited to be on Holstein's monthly podcast or perhaps be a part of her next film. Full details, rules for submission and helpful hints can be accessed at the Selfie Filmmakers site at http://www.selfiefilmmakers.com/instructions.
"Selfies can be a means of private expression, but can also serve to create public discussion of important issues, Dr. Holstein stated. "Issues such as bullying, suicides, social media pressures, lockdowns, school shootings, love and much more. They allow young people the opportunity to speak out in their own way, whether that way is to rant, vent, discuss or bare their souls.
"These are real kids with real problems," Dr Holstein concluded. "My hope is to give them a real voice through various components of the Selfie Project. The Selfie Showcase can serve as window into the minds of young people and what kids think."
The podcast series is actively seeking change-makers to appear either in person or by call-in on her monthly podcast. Dr. Holstein is hopes to feature members of traditional media, mental health professionals and educators who can make a real difference in the lives of young people. Guests, if accepted, can arrange to appear by contacting Dr. Holstein directly.
