Students from across Ocean County star in a new video in the “Right Turns” series, this time focusing on the consequences of “sexting,” sending explicit and personal photos and materials over text and social media.
It is the latest video in a series produced by the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office. Previous videos have focused on drunk driving and drusg – and all portray local teens facing decisions that could change their lives.
The main characters in the movie were played by Ocean County Vocational School/PerformingArts Academy members Payton Crispe, Sarah Osman and Jakob Walsh. Extras and speaking parts were played by Brendan Paparella, Ryleigh McDonald, Shannon Rabbitt, Amanda Ruby, Emily Gulden, Adina Paciello, Tom Johnson and Zach Zabarsky.
The film was scripted by E-Video Productions of Toms River in collaboration with members of the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Juvenile Unit. Filming took place at various locations around Ocean County, including Manchester High School and at E-Video Production’s studio in Toms River. It is the fifth video in the Right Turns series.
The films have proven popular in recent years. They are made utilizing drug forfeiture funds collected as part of the proceeds of criminal narcotic activity.
“The videos are a great visual tool for OC educators and are shown to parents at PTA/back to school functions,” said Al Della Fave, spokesman for the prosecutor’s office. “We welcome and encourage all to download and share any of the videos from our video gallery.
