The purpose of your ad is to persuade your audience on how to vote in the California election on the following day.
Each team of four students will create the following products:
Your success depends on:
The Upper Division students of Metro are proud to present their political ads for the California propositions of November 2008. These videos are the product of months of researching the ballot, interviewing voters, studying the media, thinking critically about the issues, and spending hours in video production.
We are thrilled that ABC-7 News came to Metro to film a story about our project. See the ABC-7 News story.
Congratulations to the students of Metro for their wildly successful exhibition night.

Straight and married couples between the ages of 40 and 60 are our target voters. Most straight parents don’t want their kids to grow up thinking that it’s okay to be gay. The reason why married or straight couples could vote “yes” on Prop 8 is because it would protect the definition of “marriage.” The way that we plan to sway them to vote “no” on Prop 8 is to show them that everyone deserves full, American rights and equality under all circumstances. We believe that if we can sway the minds of these swing voters, then they can change the minds of their children. Voters between the ages of 40 and 60 were born in a certain generation, in which we believe that they may know more of American history and our struggle for all equal rights, such as Martin Luther King Jr., the women’s rights movement, and Harvey Milk.
