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.

Some men in their twenties are not politically active and may not show up to the polls. Our approach is to hit them with pathos. Men that have children might vote yes because they want to know what their children are doing, yet some men will vote no because they want their younger siblings to have a choice about a decision that can change their life drastically. We appeal to the men by stressing the safety of their female loved ones. We show still images to reveal the dangerous outcomes that can come from Proposition 4.
