Crisfield Students Make A Movie With A Message

Posted:
CRISFIELD, Md.-Hollywood came to Crisfield Tuesday night for a movie premiere with a message.

"One decision, one distraction whether it be a cell phone or a drink could really change lives and hopefully they take from it how real it actually is," said high school student Chris Ford.

Ford stars in the student film, "Costly Distractions" which hopes to teach the message that life can change in an instant. More than 40 students from Crisfield High School's Students Against Destructive Decisions chapter got together for the movie.

"Why we came together to make this movie is to stop people from getting in accidents and ruining their lives because one moment in a life could destroy, take someone's life or put them behind bars," said student Dalton Adams.

The group isn't just trying to help people in their community, they want to take the message across the country. The film has been entered in the national Act Loud competition. If they win they'll receive a prize of $10,000.

Students paired up with the police department and other local officials. They want to stop driving under the influence and texting behind the wheel, but for the Crisfield Police Department the project is also about building a bond.

"So if we were able to change their minds about what they perceive as authority then that means they're thinking better about the decisions they're making already," said Cpl. Chris Hill.

The students say they want to present the film to other schools in Somerset County.
