Tom Ford has teamed up with Brett Ratner and GLSEN to judge a contest of anti-bullying PSA's.
He's asking all aspiring filmmakers to submit their own Think Before You Speak video for a chance to win a trip to El Lay!
The winner will attend the annual GLSEN Respect Awards where their PSA will be screened and honored in front of top notch filmmakers. Brett will also give the winning PSA exposure through his social media outlets.
Tom says of the project:
“I am delighted to be working with GLSEN on this important and timely campaign to emphasize how powerful words can be and how crucial it is to think before you speak. I am excited to see the submissions from aspiring filmmakers around the world and look forward to picking the most compelling ones. This campaign creates a tremendous opportunity to help us all raise awareness of this issue.”
Very well said, Mr. Ford.

This is devastating.
One month after releasing an incredibly disturbing, touching, and inspiring It Gets Better video (above), 19-year-old filmmaker EricJames Borges took his own life.
EricJames was an extremely vocal supporter of the LGBT community, who interned at The Trevor Project, and he told the world his very sad story to prove that it does get better.
Here's what The Trevor Project's Communications Director Laura McGinnis had to say about this tragedy:

Tyler Perry famously opened up about his childhood molestation on Oprah over a year ago, but now he's opening up about his tragic experiences in honor of the victims of Jerry Sandusky.
Newsweek published an open letter from the filmmaker, which he wrote to the former 11-year-old Second Mile child who suffered for years at the hands of the Penn State football defensive coordinator.
In the heart wrenching letter to the unnamed victim, Perry praised the courage it took to come forward with the allegations, writing:

He's becoming quite the filmmaker!
With the recent release of his concert documentary God Bless Ozzy Osbourne, looks like Jack Osbourne has found his true calling.
The budding filmmaker is developing a horror film inspired by his dad Ozzy's band, Black Sabbath.
Co-producer on the film, Marc Weingarten says:
"Jack and I are about to do a horror movie called Black Sabbath so there's some connective tissue there. Just the music of Black Sabbath is in the movie, but it's not about the band. We'll start shooting by the end of the year."
Interesting… Black Sabbath seems like an excellent inspiration to make some horror. Can we expect an Ozzy cameo??

Another Hollywood legend has passed away.
American filmmaker Sidney Lumet died Saturday morning in his Manhattan home at the age of 86.
Known for directing film classics such as 12 Angry Men, Serpico, Dog Day Afternoon, The Verdict, and Network, his stepdaughter Leslie Gimbel, says Lumet died from lymphoma.
He once said:
"While the goal of all movies is to entertain, the kind of film in which I believe goes one step further. It compels the spectator to examine one facet or another of his own conscience. It stimulates thought and sets the mental juices flowing."
Our thoughts are with his family. He will be missed.
