Two Seconds – A Short Dramatic Film
Excuses, Excuses is one of the short scenarios on the Two Seconds DVD.
Two Seconds is a short dramatic film created by Maine teens in partnership with Project AWARE and the Family Planning Association of Maine. Project AWARE is a Maine-based nonprofit that uses movie-making to support youth in having a voice and making a difference.
The movie tells the story of three teens struggling with relationship and sexual health issues. The title of the film, Two Seconds, refers to how quickly a person’s life can change when certain decisions are made – often at the spur of the moment and with little thought about the possible consequences. Two Seconds also symbolizes that moment when a person decides to make a healthy change that improves his or her well-being.
Two Seconds is one of several movies created through this project. The DVD also includes four short scenarios designed for use with evidence-based sexuality education curricula.
