Interview with Production Fellow Chaz Smith

Name: Chaz Smith
Age: 20
School: University of Pennsylvania
Major: Cinema Studies
Astrological Sign: Libra

ChazWe’re honored to have you join the One Student team, please share with your new extended family why you applied for this fellowship?
I applied for this fellowship after a friend of mine mentioned it to me because I have a strong passion for film and a great desire to impact and make a difference in people’s lives. However, I had absolutely no idea how much I would grow and learn about how and what it means be a supporter, ally, and activist.

What have learned about yourself throughout this experience?
Going into the production of the video, I wanted to create something that would wake people up to the reality of sexual assault because it literally happens everywhere and to a large percentage of the population, but far too often goes unreported because of the nature of the crimes.

Originally, I had planned to use great shock value to impact the audience––I wanted to surprise people with images that would astonish them. After reviewing the original script with Kelly, Becca, Sabrina, and a couple of close friends, allies, and survivors from school, I quickly learned that this was not at all the way to go.

It’s an extremely grave and sensitive topic, but the media works in a way in which it desensitizes our minds to it by making sexual acts (consensual or nonconsensual) seem casual.

Rapist or Men’s Mag?

The article written by Anna North posted on Jezebel titled “Can You Tell The Difference Between A Men’s Magazine And A Rapist?” blew our eff’n minds. Anyone who says that media does not influence opinions or our desensitize our response to violence against women should read this article: http://jezebel.com/5866602/can-you-tell-the-difference-between-a-mens-magazine-and-a-rapist

Can you tell the difference?

1. There’s a certain way you can tell that a girl wants to have sex . . . The way they dress, they flaunt themselves.

2. Some girls walk around in short-shorts . . . showing their body off . . . It just starts a man thinking that if he gets something like that, what can he do with it?

3. A girl may like anal sex because it makes her feel incredibly naughty and she likes feeling like a dirty slut. If this is the case, you can try all sorts of humiliating acts to help live out her filthy fantasy.

4. Mascara running down the cheeks means they’ve just been crying, and it was probably your fault . . . but you can cheer up the miserable beauty with a bit of the old in and out. Read More »

This unique partnership is provided in honor of One Student founders Kelly Addington & Becca Tieder (www.kellyandbecca.com), their friendship and their fight to shift the culture and help end sexual violence. Without the bond between these lifelong friends, One Student would not exist.

January 2015 marks 25 years of friendship for Kelly and Becca. In celebration of their 25th best-friendaversary (yes, it’s a thing!) we’re offering the gift of social change. To celebrate the power of friendship, survivors and secondary survivors we’re launching the YATO Ambassador program. 

Through January 31, 2015 all Ambassadors will receive a copy of the You Are the One (www.youaretheonefilm.org) documentary film, a public license for campus/ community screenings, comprehensive educational toolkit and a one-on-one phone call or online meeting with One Student staff — all for the cost of a film– $24 (retail value $275).

  • Provide #iamonestudent pictures from your event(s) to be included in a national collage
  • Share quotes about the film and actions taken following the film with the One Student team so that we can highlight the success of your campus program
  • Promote One Student resources; a few suggestions include: encouraging individuals to sign the One Student pledge, distribute one-pager resources, show the media campaigns prior to the screening and display the posters on campus to start conversations
