Powerful New Movie About Student Shooters

abstract:
News stories about students going into their schools and universities on killing sprees with guns turned on their fellow students and teachers is a trend both disturbing and perplexing. "What causes this and what can we do to stop it?" is everyone's first response. Psychologists, psychiatrists, criminal experts and educators are becoming all too familiar with the social profiles and psychological cocktails that are trending these incidents, but the general public needs to have a graphic portrayal on a human scale that can bring home the message. Enter Michael Danner, who produces and directs a compelling feature film on this topic; a biting, realistic portrayal called, Hello Herman. What follows is the blurb sent to members of a Santa Monica improv theatre group that Ms. Danner supports. I happen to be on the mailing list. Help this go viral. The world doesn't need anymore Columbines.

"Hello Herman..." is a poignant examination of the making of a teenage school shooter. We hope its provocative and powerful subject matter will speak to teens, parents, educators, and anyone who has endured the universal experience of needing to be heard.

The movie explores the desensitizing of America, youth violence and bullying, the impact the media has on our individual quest for fame and recognition, and ultimately our need for human contact.

"Hello Herman..." will be released in the Fall of 2012.

In the meantime, we are excited to share our EPK and Teaser Trailer.

We ask that you show your support of the film by "Liking" us on Youtube and sharing the videos with your friends.

Warmly,
Michelle Danner
Director/Producer
