Virginia: Teen-Produced Videos Teach AIDS Awareness
October 4, 2011
The Norfolk-based Teen AIDS Peer Corps recently produced the fourth in a series of HIV/AIDS awareness videos, scripted and acted by teens for teens. TAPC is committed to offering peer-led advice on love, sex, and relationships. "Beach Party," the video recently shot on an Ocean View beach, is TAPC's first public service announcement to broach condom use.
In the film, volunteer college-age and high school locals are gathered on a beach, playing in the water, talking and listening to music. A boy whispers into a girl's ear and begins leading her away. A friend tries to persuade the girl to stay, while another youth discreetly slaps a condom into the boy's hand.
