PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENTS (PSA)
PSA’s used to be mostly radio messages, but now they typically use videos/short film formats. They are created with public interest in mind and are disseminated by the media without charge. Their objective is to raise awareness and to change attitudes and behavior towards a social issue.
They are a great way to communicate, as no matter where they are screened they have a way of portraying messages across languages, age groups, cultural groups and different genres of audiences.
Here are just a few about Morgan to illustrate the support that she is receiving from exceptionally talented teams.
Tim Watters, founder of ‘Fair Projects‘ has produced a number of PSA’s for the Free Morgan Foundation to use at venues around the world and to help educate people about the plight of Morgan. They have featured at large concerts and on the internet.
A ‘Free Morgan‘ PSA premiered at the Blue Ocean Film Festival in Monteray Bay, California, USA in 2013. Portraying the situation of Morgan to be like that of a little human girl, alone, hungry and made to perform like a circus-freak, this PSA, at just over 2 minutes long was Directed, Produced and Edited by Daniel Azarian of Underdog Entertainment. It has been captioned in English (featured below) as well as in Espanol (Spanish), Nederlands (Dutch), French and German.
Daniel has also created other PSA’s to speak out against keeping ceatceans (whales, dolphins & porpoises) in captivity and a short film ‘A Day in the Life of Lolita‘, featuring Dr Ingrid N. Visser, co-founder of the FMF.
Independent Film Makers
A group of independent film makers cleverly crafted a short film (just over 4 minutes long) for distribution on the internet. In the spirit of ‘freeing Morgan’, they have provided the film for free to anyone who wishes to view or screen it for educational purposes. Giving the unique point-of-view as if it was Morgan filming the story, it has been labelled as ‘inspirational’ and won numerous awards. To read more about it, please see the webpage ‘I Am Morgan ~ Stolen Freedom’.
