CENTRAL FLORIDA TEEN NEEDS VOTES FOR COSMOGIRL MAGAZINE'S VIDEO COMPETITION
The title of Lynn's video is: "The Effects of Society's Obsession with Weight." To create the 7-1/2-minute video, Lynn interviewed seven Florida students who each knew someone with an eating disorder. Lynn says, “I made this film because I believe this obsession with weight is having a huge negative effect on girls today. The ‘perfect body image’ should really be your own healthy body.”
The winner of the competition will be selected based on the total number of votes she receives on CosmoGirl magazine’s web site between April 1 and April 12, 2007. The winning film and filmmaker will be profiled in the August 2007 issue of CosmoGirl magazine.
“I hope people will vote for my video so that more people will have an opportunity to see it and understand the incredible pressures that teens face,” she explains. Lynn plans to continue making videos that address important issues and would like to attend film school after graduating from high school.
