I loved the girl's last line in the film and her chucking the cigarettes into the trash. Completely enjoyed this film. :-)

This was great , It might seem straight and more to the point if it was a little shorter. I loved at the end when she throws the cigarettes away and says "THESE ARE NOT FOR ME" great.

I love the message, I think it is a strong way to reach youth with the facts. I also liked the settings (encouraging a visit to the library for research is great!)

Vital information for a PSA! Clear message, nice shots, and a great tag line. Very nice PSA.

These girls talk about important issues in a fun way. Cigarettes are gross.

If this is your first video, I'm truly impressed. The message was clear and powerful. Great job!

I liked the way the issue is addressed - straight & simple.

You all did such a great job on your first video! And you worked so well together as a team. I especially like the shots inside and outside of the library. I like the pro-active message too! Great job!

I like the twisty word trick and also the passionate "these aren't for me." fun and educational!
