Hey Mum, Stop Smoking!!

By Andy Snelling

Young people aged between 10 to 15 years are writing, directing and starring in their own anti-smoking commercials.

The Smarter than Smoking Young Directors’ Festival is reaching its final stages in deciding who will be the winner of the title ‘Best Television Commercial’ in 2012.

Students from six schools have been putting their newly learnt television skills to use in these past few months.

The program follows studies that show that to stop young people taking up smoking in the future, they should be involved in the planning, development and implementation of preventative plans.
