Aside from our shared passion for video production and high-quality storytelling, many of us at Artex have something else in common: we have young children. It’s a very real fear of ours that we live in a world where an active shooter might make their way into our kids’ schools.
As a video production company, we sought to talk about this issue in a broader and more personal way.
We came together to create a short film about the need for common-sense gun reform.
We were adamant that this project not be released until we had partnered with a gun control lobbyist who could help us position our short film to make a true impact.
We were fortunate to find a partner in Brady: United Against Gun Violence, a US nonprofit working diligently to advocate for gun control. For many years now, they’ve been working to control gun violence by getting the Brady Plan enacted, which will rely on funding from congress in order to conduct research on how gun violence can be considered a national health issue.
